- The top class for overclocking is currently the ROG Crosshair VI Hero from ASUS and ASRocks X370 Taichi and Fatal1ty X370 Professional Gaming.
A winner between these two can not be made out of a VRM table. The built-in NexFETs are identical, both controllers come from the digital variety, although it is rumored that ASUS's own label is nothing but what is installed on the ASRock boards ungebabeled.
Even if you want to write to ASUS that they like the efficiency of the FETs with their phase setup better, ASRock has the theoretical advantage of being able to react more quickly to impulsive load changes through two native phases.
Therefore, UEFI and quality control will be decided.
- The Gigabyte Aorus GA-AX370-Gaming 5 is such a board, priced very attractive the design has definitely the potential in the upper class to play along.
The same applies to evaluation of the installed hardware for biostar X370GT7, but Biostar is even more questionable than with Gigabyte, how well the UEFI implementation succeeds.
- A price / performance tip is currently the ASUS Prime X370-Pro. Similarly expensive competition by MSI or ASRock can also shine with digital controllers, but not synonymous with such a high-quality phase layout or NexFETs keep up.
- With the B350 boards, the ASUS Prime B350-Plus is currently the best figure; Four real phases are the highest of emotions for B350 boards, digital control otherwise provides only MSI in conjunction with a B350 FCH and the MOSFETs are so efficient that even at 100 ° C, 1.45V VCC and 145W power consumption the processor's power dissipation Of all FETs in the conversion for the CPU VCC is only 20W.
Even with heating coils, drivers and capacitors completely harmless
