Difference in VRM Power Design Tags: Asus Power Motherboards Last response: January 13, 2012 12:10 PM in Motherboards Share adomolis January 13, 2012 10:35:43 AM 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.!

Aftre 8 phases or so, there's little practical benefit. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumCan you spot the VRM power phase design ?
