  1. Best answer
    Any temperature below 110 is safe for VRM, throttling will happen when VRM hits 100+.

    A waterblock cooling would solve the issue, but I wouldn't spend some hundred bucks to hit 70 instead of 90, wich, again, is perfectly safe.

    You can try removing the radiator from VRM, dusting off everything and changing the termal silicon. I can't imagine anything but cleaning and giving some fresh air for VRM radiator as panacea.
