msi this time follows the trick used by asus--covering up the chokes with pads.
dont know what makes msi changed, in the past they said ithey wanted customers to be able to count how many chokes there visually.
asus does push so hard on x570 and b450 using ir image to show vrm temps. cant wait to see their b550 figthing guide.
and msi claims their 4pin aio pump header could controll the speed of aio pump..
as far as i know at least in the past this kind of header with larger current capabililty still cannot control the aio pump speed like asetek aio.
lots of aio with 3/4 pin header to plug to mobo 4pin fan headers are just for pump speed reading...

Both are probably teamed as all other Asus solutions.
hello elmor, do you know why gigabyte claims sic620a on z490 ultra and aorus pro ax to be 55a drmos on official sites instead of 60a rated in the spec sheet?
their latest vrm cheatsheet of b550 even states sic651 to be 55a rated.
