ASUS X399 ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha Preview

PC Mark

We know that UL Benchmark's PC Mark suite is almost stubborn in its refusal to make the most of extreme hardware setups such as we have here today. The gap between a value rig and a re-mortgage priced one is so small that it's quite depressing. Still, the revised ASUS ROG X399 makes a good showing in both stock and overclocked trim.

Another great review TTL style.

You got a bit confused in the video Tom. Slow brain to mouth connection?

IR3555M are smart power stages. They integrate both high, and low side mosfets with additional sensing, and protection circuits into one package. They are those chips above inductors (chokes) at the front. SMDs at the back are capacitors for ironing out the current. Either aluminium polymer, or tantalum.

Pretty much all VRM controllers on motherboards have 8 PWM signals. ASUS uses 8 PWM signals with 2 power stages for each signal. And in that case 8 PWM signals interleaving. MSI uses doublers for each PWM signal so in the end there are 16 PWM signals interleaving (one for each power stage). Both VRMs spread the load over 16 power stages for better efficiency.Quote

I meant to say PWM on the back not mosfet.... Just me being a spaz, I knew what I meant Quote
