Putting together a new rig based on the Asus Maximus XI Extreme/9900K. I went watercooling and I am curious how skilled OC experts (Read that as y o u) cool your vrm's? Do you need a fan or something going for an OC below 5,3mhz, if so, h o w did you mount that fan?
To nail it down more precisely, looking for a visually pleasant solution for cooling the VRM's in an open case, the Thermaltake Core P7. (Any way I can think of mounting a fan is a total distraction of my build)
Your feedback is greatly appreciated friends! (I am rusty at the new gen PC's as I am upgrading from first gen i7 = +10 yrs and the peripherals is just to slow, so really appreciate your feedback.)

SLI 2 x MSI 760 Gaming OC, - strike that, upgraded to Msi GTX 970 Gaming 4g, Samsung EVO 500gb, at 92% health and 45C Cyborg R.A.T. 9, - still has not got working drivers as of today! (Have 3 in a drawer and also a couple of R.A.T. 7's with same crap drivers.) and Logitech G7 Backup, 1 x Thermochill PA120.4, 1 x Laing DDC 18w with Leaking XSPC Reservoir Top, (On my second) 1 x Watercool Heatkiller Rev 3, Copper CPU Block, 1 x 1366 Backplate, 16 x Yate Loon D12SH-12 (+ extra fans here and there)
