I've been reading up on VRMs, heatsinks, et al. on modern boards (e.g. b450, x470), and I'm a bit lost.
The 2700x, as you know, has XFR and can make use of PBO, and according to reports, this means that manually overclocking is basically a thing of the past.
However, most boards, if you listen to at least some of the pros, have an insufficient power setup to properly supply the 2700x through to it's best (4.3ghz). Add to this that some makers, like MSI, don't have voltage offset, and it seems to me that you have yourself a problem that I don't know how to solve. This is in addition to concerns about thermal walls (e.g. the board will be your limit).
What I'm wondering is, if a builder has a 2700x, requires wifi+bt and a decent sound option, and will be running a fairly hot card (let's say an rx580 as they are popular), is there a way to optimize for this type of setup?
