Voltage Regulation And Its Cooling
Asus is using a 14-phase power solution here. The angular heatsinks may or may not make it onto the retail boards, according to the company. However, all of the other shots we've seen of the board (in addition to its Computex debut) show it with these same sinks, so there's a good chance they'll stay.
As you can see, there's plenty of room around the socket itself, though it was interesting to note that our Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme barely sits on the LGA 1156 interface without touching the graphics card plugged in to the first PCI Express slot.
