The Asrock boards are out too. This is something I'm very interested in as well. I simply want to pick the board with the best OC performance, and I'm pretty stuck between the Taichi, Fatality i7, and the Hero.

When they were speaking of "DSMs" with 1.2mOhm RDS(on) in the past they were using TI NexFETs CSD87350 so most likely we'll see these FETs on the Z370 boards again.

ASUS boards are out.

Sorry for the silly question, but once you know all the VRM parts, how do we know if a board will be a quality overclocker? If I understand correctly, the Gigabyte Z370 Gaming 7 has a high quality power stage controller?

Could you buy that VRM waterblock and remove the Apex heatsink and swap it? From those two boards.

There are quite a lot of good indicators. Just check out common guides on this topic, e.g. Sins.

Yeah the controller is a high quality one, also the power stages themselves are high quality too.

I wonder if the mITX Z370I Strix would push the 8700K at 5Ghz as the Z270I did, and if EK releases a monoblock also.
