How hot does the RVE get? On RIVE for example VRM heat can be a real problem. The new cpu's are probably more energy efficient compared SB-E though. Before I got waterblocks on my RIVE I could almost get burns from touching the heatsink backplate on the back of the motherboard.

The issue is really related to how most x79 boards are designed, with DIMM slots on both sides of the cpu the only space left for VRM's is just above the cpu.

The VRM block could be worthwhile for pushing high frequency, not essential but you may possibly gain a little stability. And then there would be no need for high perf fans blowing, arrrghhh the noise!!

For the PCH pretty pointless.
