    Thanks Cliff. Everything looks to be in order. Have a 5Ghz that's running much cooler now. How do the temps look?

    Looking good
    But temps(even when delidded) will always depend on ambient temperatures of the room when on air and water.

    Did you see how much thermal paste I put on between the IHS and the cooler? I think I may have applied a bit too much there but that can be done again. I was also watching Gamers Nexus delid video and Steve talked about how putting the right amount of gasket silicone to reseal the lid can affect temps quite a lot, too much will have the IHS sitting too high above the die. I may have used a little too much gasket silicone also. Happy though.

    So after say a week of benches, gaming and stress tests is it pretty safe to say things are 100% successful?

    No need to worry too much about using a little too much thermal paste, it's just wasteful(assuming you're using a non-conductive paste like Thermal Grizzly):
    the article has to do with Threadripper, but thermals are thermals

    Lol ok with thermal paste. Does lower CPU temps reduce VRM temps or is the VRM governed by the voltage being used?

    VRMs temps are through built in sensors, both temp and voltage(which creates the heat), just make sure your case has good airflow.
    You have the Hero like I do, and those heat sinks are not the best, as they don't have any fins like an X299 Dark or even the X299 FTW K by EVGA.

    So CPU temps don't influence the VRM directly, it's more the actual voltage going to the CPU and case temps...

    I don't know what a good VRM temp is but before I delidded at 5Ghz the VRM would max at 55C which doesn't seem bad.. I haven't checked to see whether delidding directly affects the VRM yet.
