I recently built a computer:
Asus Z490-i Gaming
I9-10900K (Celcius 240 liquid cooled AIO)
32 gb Corsair (now thermalake 16gb)
850 Corsair PSU
Samsung 970 EVO plus 2TB
GeForce RTX 2080 TI
Factual Design Core 500 case
My question is, is there a VRM Heatsink Fan?
a few reviews on youtube (or rather unboxing reviews) claim there is
but in my bios, under monitor tab it shows: N/A beside the "VRM Heatsink Fan Speed" (which is set to enabled)
how i came to this question..
this board has been a nightmare..
i have 3 sets of RAM in a drawer, all are on QVL list for this board..
enabling XMP on some ram causes an endless loop. but most just crashes (computer just randomly shuts off and reboots)
M.2 hard drive using samsung magician software reports temps under light load at 60 to 65 degrees.. too hot (im only running 1 drive)
i know this is a small form factor and is prone to heat issues but i have not played a game or anything intensive yet and HD is getting how..
initially i thought that was the reason for the crashing.. after rulling out and going through several sets of RAM)
the M.2 heat sinks are sorta connected to the heatsinks over the external plugins which are also sorta connected to the VRM...
im wondering if there is fans and their not working, thats why my HD is so hot.. or maybe i need to figure out how to get another fan inside the case and point it at the HD heatsink
