LOL this thread.
FYI, AMD meant to use the TI DrMOS vrms but TI supply fell though the floor. Thus AMD switched to the Volterra digital vrms, to get the cards out to the channel.
They've only now gone back to the original design!!!!!!!

The V2 design ek block which has been out for 1 month now, fits this pcb. Btw, this pcb was first used by Powercolor, where's the out cry over this?
Also, I might as well as my 2 cents. If you're going to watercool and overclock the crap out of the card, you want the TI DrMOS setup anyways, since you can monitor vrm temps with it. The Volterra are not supported by any software for monitoring vrm temps. The DrMOS setup also has improved regulation, ie. it's better for overclocking with. AMD said back in December that they were going to go back to the TI setup.Edited by tsm106 - 4/14/11 at 10:22pm
