You may find something useful in this Motherboard VRM Tier List even though it's specific to AMD.

I found that I can get a quality power delivery system without buying overpriced hardware with features and bling I won't ever need.

The end of that Hardware Unboxed video also sums it up well. With VRM's basically you just need a setup that'll run within spec for your setup. 75C during a stress test with the i9 like the "worst" boards tested by them performed would still be fine.

The issue is when they go close to or over 100C just with stock chips and that does happen sometimes.
