Did you mean 3800?

Hey I took some pictures of the board this morning but I didn't get a good enough picture to read the numbers on the package. I'll get some better ones when I get home this evening.

I understand nothing...
Tek Sydicate has an overview of Taichi and they claim it uses Sinopower FETs (you can't see them in the video), but you can see memory FETs and they are from Fairchild...

https://youtu.be/u1Ya6wUAsTg?t=127

EDIT:
I'm guessing they've just made mistake. Before Taichi overview, they took a look at ASRock Fatal1ty Z370 Professional i7 and for this one, they took radiators off.
You can't really see FETs for CPU, but for memory it is Sinopower, so they probably thought it is the same on Taichi.

EDIT2:
Hardware.info had Taichi with Sinopower memory FETs, so as AlphaC wrote it very likely that main FETs are also from Sinopower. Link for image 3 posts down.

The FET/VRM next to the memory on the Fat1lity ITX is definitly Fairchild, however most of this thread is focused on ATX boards so, yea.

Right, did you mean 4000 and above like I asked? It will run at 3200 CL14 because it's rated at that speed and is something easy for even 7th Gen CPU's to run.

I'd be pretty sure they are.
I got that but still on every picture I see Taichi is equipped with 5030SG and Gaming i7 with SM7341EH. redface.gif

Seems weird , yes

I don't have an answer maybe Nickshih can help us

I've been quietly lurking, reading more and more about VRM and trying to get my head around things. First I can't thank you and the others in this thread for keeping us both updated and 'translating' into layman terms for us novices haha!

I'm currently in the position of choosing the most suitable Motherboard for non-extend OC'ing. Like a few others I intend to start out without delid'ing (building my confidence!) using a D15 and 3200 CL14 in the hopes of the 5GHz mark - I had my mind set on the Asus Z370 Hero has Motherboards are slightly limited where I am (most on preorder as they fly over from the US) but withe latest scare with 'droops' its made me reconsider.

As new information is flowing in daily I know your/others suggestions may change but so currently (taking into consideration what I can source locally) between the following, what would you suggest:

Asrock Fatal1ty K6
Asus ROG Hero
Gigabyte AROUS Gaming 5
Gigabyte AROUS Gaming 7
Asus Strict/TUF
MSI (not worth listing models it seems)

Unfortunately the Taichi or I7 Professional are currently not availiable and don't want to sit here for too much longer staring at a CPU haha. Not interested in WiFi/BT, just want solid starting block for OC'ing and enough run a single 1080ti, 8700k and a M.2 SDD + single HDD.

From what's coming out last day or so, the Asrock K6 is looking great for its price correct? I'm unsure how bad the Fairchild is (look at me sounding like I know what's going on tongue.gif) but if you say its worth springing for the Gaming 5/7 or Hero I'll do so as I already budgeted for the later.

Cheers!

Can I get a list of the boards impacted by the LLC issue?

This is what I have so far:

Asrock Taichi (Fixed 10/16/17 BIOS update)
ASUS Z370-E (BIOS fix being prepared)
ASUS Z370-F (BIOS fix being prepared)
ASUS Maximus X Hero (Rumored to have issue?)
