Is there a reason we don't see active VRM cooling on the Z370 boards? This is a killer feature on the X299 Dark and gives EVGA a huge leg up on the competition. Why not bring this mainstream? Do the LGA 1151 chips simply not need it, even when overclocking?

    It has a lot to do with the fact that 6 cores don’t pull as much power as 18 cores, so the vrm doesn’t get taxed as much and overheat.

    They did add a Single Fan on X299 FTWK Motherboard to make it Active VRM Cooling.
    My Z370 FTW VRM Never even get warm. All MB are on Sale ATM
    The Dark on Sale $349.99 But you can only buy One Per Household, Sucks I cannot get a Second One.

    I would save money on Z390 keeping only CPU block, not VRM watercooling.
    Price for Monoblock and GPU block is over 350 euro, and CPU Block + GPU block could be find for 200 euro.
    Z390 VRM even if reach 75C it's perfectly fine and no reason to worry.
     
    CPU blocks are not big investment...definitely worth...if you have all other parts CPU block is not even half of good AIO system.
    Special if some new versions show up and older drop price, could be found for 50 euro.
    Supremacy EVO special.

     Newegg has them for $350 https://www.newegg.com/Pr..._-13-188-192-_-Product


    I guess I just assumed the Z370 VRMs would still put out a good amount of heat. Guess not.

    I already have a EK Phoenix 360mm MLC. The block will work on Z370. If an EVGA monoblock hits the market, I'll probably pick one up
