on my board this spot is on the upper edge of the board. It's hot enough to burn your finger. In memtest only of course.. gaming and folding doesn't get nearly as hot.
I don't mind, because my NF7-S was just as hot around the vdimm circuit below the memory banks.
Maybe I'll try to rearrange the cooling, but I don't think ~80C (maybe more like 70C and memtest only) could damage a PCB in the long run.
