post #1082 of 22167
I looked at the Gigabyte's Oc and soc force wasn't really impressed with the lack of heatsinks. Right now looking at reviews for the Asrock extreme 6. Claims to have 12 power phase digi control. I need to do my research into power phase for these boards. Even Asrock's Oc board wasn't calling to me.

Edited... Here is a very helpful information on some vrm and power phase of z97. It has helped me almost decide to get the asrock extreme 6. Looking for the gigabyte's info now.

Right now this is the board that I am going to choose. Ga-z97-udh5-bkIt has the M.2 sata, ample usb, 4k resolution support. I want to say 12 phase and should not hold back an Overclock. I went with the Bk edition for the extra warranty and the color scheme matches my black and red h440. This will be the first time for me getting my hands on a chip on it's release date and I want to thank everyone that has guided me in my decisions. Now just waiting on the 30th to come by. I will post data on overclocks Asap. I will also try and get microcenter to let me hold every i7 and see if they are carrying different chips or just the same chip and manufacture dates. We shall see. Hopefully I pick the right damn one. My 3770k is going to go to my wife and the 3570 will be the htpc and gaming console. (Emulators)

I'm going with the ASUS Maximus VII Formula, myself. I've never owned a top-line ASUS board, and i promised myself this time would be it smile.gif

The MB won't be released until July, though......though neither will the PG278Q monitor I'm also waiting for.

So even if my preordered 4790K ships later than expected, I still have time to play with.

I own a Asus Maximus V Formula right now. I haven't any problems with it. I bought it used from here on the Market Place. It overclocks nicely. I was leaning towards the Asus Deluxe but I think my wife would've killed me on that one. I will give you a heads up though. When I installed the wifi on this board the l bracket caused it to ground out. Also the software in Ai suite I want to say the game first wifi and the usb charger caused issues.

Thread Starter 

Am I crazy for contemplating selling my 3770k, and just keeping a hopefully highly overclocked G3258 to play games like Titanfall and BF4 with gtx 670 SLI at 1440p?

post #1088 of 22167
Notice there is a point that the current the VRM can handle is so much, it becomes not that important to even cool it. e.g. those cards on Z87 with IR3550 x 8 could do 480Amps and that's like ~1000W under regular conditions and a very big overclock on LN2 or air/water might not need more than 200W, you get the picture of the redundancy.

So, 12 phases will occasionally need no cooling at all and occasionaly 8 phase boards won't either. The SOC Force will likely not need much cooling (I've seen Sin0822 remove the heatsink on presentations) since with 8 IR3553s it could theoretically do up to 750W under regular conditions when again it won't need it.

For the mid-end boards it's more interesting, since e.g. the Gigabytes appear to usually have 8 mosfets that can do up to around 25A under regular conditions, a max of around 400W. They should be fine with a mild application of heatsinks but they will feel warmer to the touch.

Every time I see your profile picture, I think you're crazy. :p
