Difference in VRM Power Design

Hi Community!

I am currently looking in to two mb's:

P8P67 pro
and
Maximus 4 gene Z

I also plan to overclock, but the question is, what is the difference in this "digital VRM" phase count.
P8P67 Pro has 12+2, whilst Maximus 4 gene z has Extreme Engine Digi+ 8 only.

Should this count be a concern?? What effects should a lower number (8) have?

Thank you.!

  1. Theorectically, more phases give you better transient response, smoother power delivery, and lower thermal effects because power delivery is spread over more components.

    Aftre 8 phases or so, there's little practical benefit.
