Oh how fool I am
I really didn't know that it supplies to CPU/NB..........Many thank you Sir for teaching me that......I was in under the impression that it directly supplies to DRAM because actually I had read that information in somewhere in forum which was partially wrong .....It's my bad I didn't try to check on my own . Thank you again !
And for overclock I just thought that most VRMs at least can provide 35Amperes (105A for three phase), then I calculated by
Power Consumption = TDP x ( OC MHz / Stock MHz ) x ( OC Voltage / Stock Voltage )^2
If PII X2 555 @ 3800Mhz at 1.35v
Power Consumption = 80 x ( 3800 / 3200 ) x ( 1.35 / 1.30 )^2
Power Consumption = 102.4 Watts
Then I divide this by OC Voltage to know Ampere requirement ( Since we know Watt = Volt x Ampere)
( 102.4 Watts / 1.35 Volts ) = 75.85 Ampere
Now I divide this value of Ampere by 3 (Because of 3 phases for CPU)
75.85 / 3 = 25.3 Ampere from each phase
Finally I thought that if 25.3 Ampere is required by each phase then it might be much safer than those MSI 790FX boards where all MOSFETs blew up while providing max theoretical current.
