As far as the vrm is concerned on this board. Its not an 8 true phase design, but rather 4 true phases doubled to 8 with ISL6617 phase doublers. THe PWM controller used on this board is the ISL6388 which is a 6+1 true phase hybrid controller. So to get 8 phases they simply took 4 phases and doubled those to 8 pwm phases.
I could eventualy post a vrm detailed spec some day if anyone is interested.
I´m personaly not a huge fan of Msi X99 boards. Especialy not the ones with 4 true phases doubled to 8 pwm phases. Like Msi X99 Sli plus, Msi X99 pro gaming carbon, Msi X99 Gaming7, Msi X99 Gaming 9 AMK, and Msi X99 Raider.
I sorta understand for some of the UEFI stuff, but did we forget how to use screen capture software for the Windows utilities? Or are we just afraid of using OBS after that little misfortune involving the Tek? I sorta thought we were beyond filming the screen...
