Do you/how cool VRMS on XI Extreme

Level 8
Howdy mates,

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.)

Stay cool!


My old Rig, looking like a crows nest... (at least honest)

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)

All one could just is just mount a fan to blow across it.

I just got the same case 15 mins ago and need to open it up still but that's the plan. 140mm fan probably.
