Why is the ram located above the cpu?

to put it in the same direction as the airflow when in a rack case

I have no idea actually but that sounded good, right?

That would be my reasoning as well.

Its meant for server case/chassis… so makes sense for airflow

I’m not sure it actually matters though. I suppose it could block the vrm heat sink.

speaking of which, I’m not so sure I would want to put a 3700 or better in that board with only those 2 chokes… thats just a little more than spooky to me.

I’m not sure what that vrm setup is but the power staging looks weak.
