Great review mate, I've been interested in this bored and see what kinda features it was packing. I'm curious to see what happens when they put the 990X in there.

just a typo:
Quote:
The iTE IT8275E is a GPIO which holds the information for the PWM on how to regulate the vcore for the processor, it also accommodates phase switching. Phase switching is a big deal, because honestly you only need 6 of the phases on this board to overclock up to 4.5 GHz. The funny thing is that GIGABYTE uses the highest quality driver MOSFETs, and then adds them onto the board like no one’s business. Other manufacturers are not so kind or lavish. So why does GIGABYTE go out of the way to give you 16 phases when you only need 6? Because they know that when those phases are under strain their life is shortened, no matter their quality. By adding phases and then switching them in pairs of 8, or even down to as little at 2 at a time you can greatly reduce the lifespan on the motherboard.

reduce should be increase, lengthen, etc.

Great review though!!
