So my VRMs get really hot during gaming. I used a multimeter as my motherboard (Asus M5A78l-M Plus) doesn't have onboard VRM temperature sensors I launched Cinebench R15 Extreme and put my multimeter temperature diode, the highest temperature I reached was 90 celsius. Also keep in mind that I already had VRM heatsinks on because my CPU was doing weird drops in usage when gaming, they seemed to fix the issue but I still get drops in games like FH4 and also want to OC (i know it technically doesn't have OC support but it worked when I got it). Is there any way to get them cooler? I am currently trying to get a drill bit to drill holes into my case to mount a fan on top so air can blow on to the VRMs.
