Some more infos from der8auer: https://www.hardwareluxx.de/community/f139/intel-skylake-x-kaby-lake-x-oc-laberthread-lga2066-1164913-17.html

"Today I've tested the X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC: At 4.6 GHz, Prime26.6 (non AVX!) at 1.25V the CPU got throttled by overheating VRMs already after 10 minutes.
[...]
I'm going to test the X299 Gaming M7 ACK tomorrow. The X299-A by ASUS is throtteling at 4600 MHz @1.25V."
___________

Also: Take a look on MSI's website for their cheaper X299 boards. Again they seem to use NIKO Sem. FETs on these boards. Only the X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC and the X299 Gaming M7 ACK seem to use integrated MOSFETs.

Any updates on the VRM of the Aorus 7 or 9. I saw the post about the 3 but it only runs with one 8 pin and the 7 and 9 model has the 8+8.....

The VRM on the Gaming 7 is the same as the one on the Gaming 3: http://www.expreview.com/55082-all.html

yes i saw that but wondering about the difference with it being an 8+8....... Is this a good MB, i normally use ASUS but took a chance on GigaByte

I wouldn't buy it for overclocking, take a look at the quotation in #17.

Ahhh... the dificultes of being an early adopter. Leaves me at the question of what to do. Return or use.

One difference between the 3 and the 7,9 is that the 7 and 9 have an extra heat pipe and spreader from the vrm to behind the i/o panel.

I did see this in the same thread as well...
"So we summarize, there is so far no usable board for stronger OC, apart from the Apex."

Also this post

"My initially favored ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe also has only 8 plus 4 PINs. My goal of 4.7 GHz with a cache clock of 4,000 MHz seems hardly accessible with the board.
Also the heat development (105 ° C @ load), which I always feared, in the SpaWas of the board, seems to have been confirmed. As it currently looks, sufficient cooling for a good 24/7 OC is not easily possible.
This is a crucial disadvantage of the Skylake-X. Nevertheless, I would not buy because of the bad gaming performance no thread-Tripper."

It seems to use a single high- and lowside FET (most likely NIKOs) for each phase, the heatsink has to be very good if it should stay cool at overclocking.
I wouldn't trust this board but I didn't trust the heatsink of the X370 XPower Titanium at first too...

For the Apex der8auer stated:
"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."

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

Are you referring to the 7900x when you say it wasn't able to handle 4.8?

Really not trying to spend $500 on a motherboard
