Interesting. I think a reviewer (like GN) should review boards with the same CPU each time so we can see how the VRM OC's rather than judging them by phase count. I find it odd that we have PSU reviewers that test PSUs but no one reviews motherboards in this way.
Knowing how precise the voltage readings are would also be helpful.
