I am interested in what you find out with this board.... Just a a side note I saw where the Threadripper version of Asus board adds an active fan in the i/o cover to aid in cooling the vrms. It looks like they may be a little more pro-active with those boards. Also, it seems that every board I have seen so far for x399 has been 8+8.

VRM heatsink, plastic cover on top restricting heat dissipation. Most likely 12+1 phase configuration (6x2+1). Best guess for power stage would be IR3555.




Back of the VRM heatsink. Very thin bottom metal plate contacting to the heatpipe.




The heatsink by the I/O cover which connects to the heatpipe. Half of it is covered by the plastic I/O cover which really limits how much heat it can dissipate.




6x doubler ICs. No backplate.

Speaking of TR4: I'd say we need a VRM thread for those boards in the AMD subforum too since MSI, ASRock and Gigabyte already published their first infos about VRMs on X399.

MSI lists that the XPower uses DrMOS, meaning that instead of IR FETs it probably uses those awesome Fairchild FETs. If that's indeed the case, it's the best x299 board in terms of overall VRM design so far.

Edit: Forgot that IR parts also have integrated driver, still wishing it uses Fairchild parts though.

Yo guys!
Are there any news about water cooling block offers for the vrms of the x299 boards?

VRM only blocks are less likely but Monobocks are being prepared now from the information that is available. I would expect a short wait - nothing immediate, you're best off asking EK directly. Depends on what board you're looking for, too.

Too bad that EKW does not only make a block for MOS (VRMs)

After there is that, if it's compatible

That board uses IR3599, those are doublers (or even quadrouplers), but no integrated drivers like in the IR3598 since the drivers are in the power stages.

Seems I got them mixed up, thanks. Yes only doubling no driving.

I ve got a ASUS X99-Deluxe at the moment. The VRMs are cooled by a water coolblock as well as the CPU (Intel i7 5930K) is.
I am looking for an ASUS X299 Deluxe. Would buy an ASUS Rampage VI Apex too. It just depends if I can get waterblocks to cool the VRMs.
