That's always been a source of frustration for amp techs as amps that get a significant amount of use can start to cook the traces on the PCBs. I used to own an amp from a different company that was built that same way and you could see the discolouration of the board and it created lots of intermittent issues for me. It was rather frustrating. I eventually bit the bullet had the board properly repaired at a hefty expense and then I sold it right after, while I still could get something out of it.

To the OP, I apologize again.
We've kind of derailed your thread.
So that's why the better amps have the tubes standing on top of the board vs hanging under them.
Makes sense.
