<p>In light of xd_1771's thread <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/943109-why-vrms-big-issue-why-usually.html">(here)</a>, I (and xd) have decided to start making a list of AMD motherboards and their power phases.<br><br>
Can't find your board on the list? Submit it, and we might be able to add it!:<br><a class="bbcode_url" href="https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?hl=en&hl=en&formkey=dDIwUVJ1UWVzWnRqOVEzLWJxYUZwQXc6MQ#gid=0" target="_blank">>>Click Here for Submission Form<<</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Note 1:</strong> all un-heatsinked boards will support Enzotech MOS-C1 heatsinks</p>
<p>Heatsinks referred to in spreadsheet:<br><a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708011" target="_blank">Enzotech MOS-C1</a><br><a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708061" target="_blank">Enzotech MST-66</a><br><a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708016&cm_re=MST88-_-35-708-016-_-Product" target="_blank">Enzotech MST-88</a><br><br><strong>Note 2:</strong> Often when a board is advertised as 8+2, 16+2, etc, it often still uses 4 channels. There has been some controversy over the advertising of "8+2" phase boards since they are not true 8 channel designs. But, since 8+2 (with four channels), in *most* (read: not all), situations is much better than 4+1 (4 channels) we still decided to list them by their Phase count rather than their number of channels.<br><br><strong>Note 3:</strong> Please be aware that just because a board does not have something the "recommended" collumn does not necessarily mean it is a bad board. It can either mean no-data, or not-recommended. As there are hundreds of AMD motherboards, we do not have time to research every one. If you have a question about a particular board, make a thread, or post in this one.</p>

Is there any chance you could put down a note to say if a motherboard is mATX or not? It's near impossible to find decent mATX AM3 motherboards.

Great Idea.<br><br>
Once the list is complete it should be stickied for all to see.

We can put a note for mATX at a later time. For now, we are just working on getting it all filled in.<br><br>
We should have it done in a few days

My board:<br>
Gigabyte<br>
Ga-870A-UD3<br>
8+2<br>
None/Upgradeable (Note: mosfets and pushpin holes are arranged exactly for a Enzotech MST-88)<br>
140W<br>
Not sure<br>
Not sure<br><br>
8-pin<br><br>
2nd Note: Standard gigabyte extra thick copper plane aids cooling.

Same here and I have the same Enzotech MST-88.<br><br>
The Enzotech MST-88 also fits on the Ga-770A-UD3.<br><br>
This is a good idea. This should be added to the motherboard threads & clubs sticky.

Wow, such a great idea. That would help users a lot, especially when trying to decide on a board to buy.<br><br>
Add ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB 3 for 8+2 Phase. 140w and has 8-pin plug.

I like how a lot of you are trying to help with your own info <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br>
I'm making great progress in the Gigabyte area, both sides learning quite a bit here. This is fun <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">

You could add socket as a category (though all AM3 so far).<br><br>
AM3+ soon enough!

we will be making a separate spreadsheet for AM2/am2+ and AM3+ when it officially comes out.

The Biostar TA890FXE board has a 8 pin CPU plug, I see it's not filled in your chart yet.
