Very nice, but VRMs are becoming so efficient that even stock motherboard coolers are overkill. If you like the looks then yea it is good.

Yeah, the VRMs on this board are very inefficient and a bit crap. So they run hotter than they should..

Personally I wouldn't buy this board any way, given it's a bit rubbish. So that means I would not then spend another £120 on cooling the 6 phase fets either.

You are right. This board could definitely benefit from water. If you have more money than sense, and you are buying the board just for looks EK has got you covered.
