You should double check the current limit set on your stepper drivers. The stock board in the Ender-3 has pots to adjust each driver. Do a quick search on setting motor current with A4988 stepper drivers. I've been using this for a few months now without issue, and I know at least a handful of others that are too. Not to mention years worth of printer running NEMA17 motors mounted to acrylic frames and the like. ;)
