I said they sit under the daughter board.

I have the X299 Deluxe, Aorus Gaming 9, Aorus Gaming 7, and MSI gaming Pro Carbon. When I take pics I will share with you exactly what they have.

As for the iVR, it does have an iVR, but it's technically not a FIVR since not all rails are integrated like haswell. It does use the same voltage range and produce the same heat tho.

ASUS ROG Strix X299-E Gaming:
http://www.coolenjoy.net/bbs/review/487580?p=4

That's quite interesting: An ASP1405I which most likely is an IR35201 seems to run in 7+1 mode to control two different buck converters.
Of course the one with seven phases and those IR3555M PowIRstages is for VCCIN but what's the one phase with the CSD97374M NexFET for?
Sin are you allowed to tell us which voltages aren't generated internally from VCCIN? smile.gif

Edit: Just found your article here: http://www.tweaktown.com/news/58013/intels-skylake-use-integrated-voltage-regulator/index.html
Reading the document from Intel my conclusion is that besides VCCIN there are three different voltages the board has to supply: VCCSA, VCCIO and VCC33 while VCC33 most likely is just 3.3V from the power supply.
But still VCCSA and VCCIO needs to get generated on the board and that could be done by either buck converters or linear regulators I'd say.

I like Taichi the most. BIOS look good without the concerning buggy ones shown in many reviews. VRM quality looks excellent with Dual LANs and a Wireless NIC.

Techspot used one in their review and it performs pretty damn well:

Biggest problem is availability. Only Newegg have a preorder for it. Amazon only have Asus boards, and the Gigabyte boards are removed for some reason.

Still no idea what the TUF Mark 1 is using?

True that. Would love to have my hands on one biggrin.gif

This time ASUS have very strong X299 line and EVGA have X299 Dark very attractive motherboard and stand out from other definitely.
But ASUS domination is obvious with two premium models Rampage VI Apex and Rampage VI Extreme.
But that's not everything, their X299 Deluxe is nicer than ever before, I never liked that series somehow but this time is REALLY nice even with color I don't like.
This is not complete ASUS X299 line, they will launch at least one premium motherboard and that ASUS X299 WS probably for i9 series 10-18 cores.
I only could imagine that monster in E-ATX format.

I would go on successor of mine Rampage VI Extreme off course.
VRM is probably very similar to X99 RVE with little changes maybe.
We still need to see naked ASUS ROG motherboards but no reason to suspect in their 8 phases for CPU if they decide to repeat as X99 or 10 phases.
From other side if someone want to experiment with fastest DDR4 kits on 4 x DIMM slots maybe is better to go with Apex.
8+8 pin and 4 DIMM slots looks like ASUS choose that board to enthusiasts OC on LN2 more than RVIE.
RVIE looks more like board for 64-128 GB DDR4 and probably will support even i9 series with BIOS update later.

Roman Hartung aka der8auer just shared some knowledge in the german hardwareluxx forum:

"As far as I can see it's more about the heatsinks than the phasecount. Fun fact: All the boards I've tested so far stayed cooler without their heatsinks and some airflow than with their heatsinks on. Unfortunately the manufacturers do more care about design than efficiency and that's a huge mistake. The ASRock board you've mentioned [ASRock X299 K6 Gaming] should reach it's limits pretty soon [The guy want's to overclock to 4.5GHz] . The single 8 Pin connector also is a reason for that. I'd generally recommend you to go with a board with more than a single 8 Pin power connector if you're interested in overclocking."

"I've just tested the Gigabyte X299 Aorus Gaming 3 and at 4.3 GHz with 1.15V I already measured 105°C at the backside of the voltage regulators... You can guess what the temperature will be with 4.5 GHz at 1.25V or even higher overclocking.

Tomorrow
[today] I'll test the MSI X299 Gaming Pro Carbon and the X299 SLI Plus. As far as I can see there's not a single board I'd recommend you for heavy overclocking. My first APEX sample had troubles with 5GHz and wasn't able to handle these clockspeeds at higher load. But ASUS listened to my feedback and reworked their cooling design completely and also they're using better thermal interface pads now.

The 400 € ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe wasn't even able to handle 4.8GHz.

Seems to be an issue if the Rampage VI Extreme only has a 8+4 instead of Dual 8. Maybe the delay is to re do it to 8+8?

Another X299 Deluxe Review:

Pretty sure the powIRstages are IR3555M parts.
