EVGA has announced a product that should get the hardcore overclockers salivating: an add-on voltage regulation (VRM) board for motherboards and graphics cards.

Dubbed the EVGA EPower Board, the add-in VRM board is designed to replace stock voltage regulation modules on high-power devices in order to allow for even more power to be shoved through; a critical part of extreme overclocking.

According to EVGA's figures, the EPower board can run at a VCORE adjustment range of 800mV to 2000mV at a current of up to 400A, or a VDIMM adjustment range of 1000mV to 5000mV at up to 80A. To put those figures into context: EVGA recommends a 600W power supply with 42A on the 12V rail per EPower board used in the system.

Before you get excited about the potential of the board, there's a catch: the system is hardly plug-and-play. Those who have bought the board are expected to solder it directly to the motherboard or graphics card of their choice, replacing the existing VRMs with a connection to the EPower board.

wheee.gif Now all you need is sufficient cooling.

Edit: but I don't see this as anything that big.

I want 10! biggrin.gif. So I guess this means they will be selling the EVBOT also now? derp, guess they've been retail for a while.

Guys, this is OCN. Aka, the "pursuit of performance". wink.gif I see no reason why the OP should be bashed simply because he wants to push his hardware as hard as he can.

Wow. So with one of those, I wouldn't have to worry about my motherboard going up in flames? redface.gif

Tempting. So very tempting...

Interesting... Might be working on this. smile.gif

Burning books is like burning bras; after the adrenaline rush of the symbolic moment wears off all you're left with is a pile of ashes and unsupported boobs.
