Determining power phase

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know how to tell if a board is a TRUE 8+2 power phase and not just a 4+2. Particularly the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO?

What do you mean by "TRUE 8+2"?
If you're asking how to tell the phase count of a board, just count the chokes to the left(on other boards they can also be above) of the CPU socket. For your board it would be 8+2 since there are 10 chokes.

It's a good board..I have one..Not quite as strong as the sabertooth..but 95% as strong
as the other guy said..count the chokes
And yes..It's a true 8+2
If you're getting reboots..could be your psu..nahh..you're good there..
