The reason why we didn't include the VRM temperatures for the rest of the Z690 Aqua OC configs is that the motherboard, unlike other ones, doesn't come with separate VRM heatsinks. The pre-equipped water block offers to cool for the VRMs hence it is the only solution you'll end up using on this motherboard. But using the other cooling solutions does prove the potential advantage that AIO and Custom-loop solutions have over standard air cooling solutions. The Hydro XD7 provided by Corsair with its integrated pump and reservoir configuration provided a nice testing kit for the Z690 Aqua OC and the numbers are evident of that.
