Yet it, protective sheeting, does not allow the tin itself to radiate/dissipate outwards. Thus for all intent and purpose "trapping' a lot of heat underneath.

ie: yours could be running even cooler

But proper housing cooling is required for every High End board and other components.

My runs cool and stable all the time.

If you haven't yet, make sure you've peeled the very thin protective plastic sheeting off those three pretty covers boys. Doing so is a MUST do.

My only gripe with it is just that. That ASRock doesn't include a note or something Warning Users that this needs done to allow proper cooling. Those sheets themselves act as insulators and don't allow proper heat dissipation of those tin covers.

Still, I wish that the PCI-e slots are hard-coated with a metal shell, to prevent breaking
when using a top-gear GPU on a workbench and/or in a case.

The only physical mod the board needs is removing the decorative covers to the mosfet/NB heatsinks.  They have mesh but the "glue" holding them in place is actually a solid layer in many places that prevents airflow from getting through the mesh.

It works like this:
1. Mailing ASRock TSD
2. Waiting for 7-14 days for the EEPROM.

I just modified the ROM, the board is "vanilla" from the hardware perspective.

Anyway I would like to get it from ASRock anyway. Did you modified anything else or only the ROMs?

Flashing the BIOS does not void the warranty.

Replacing the EEPROM is easy and ASRock will provide You a new one
if ever needed (even after the warranty period).

But You can flash the modded UEFI, it's safe to use.
