A Tech Report Review may Inadvertently Point to something Huge for Overclocking

I’d have to hang up my writer’s badge if I failed to mention what I just saw. Sometimes it’s helpful to have nothing to do but slowly watch the Twitter feed tick down to the next, newest thing. In this case, ASUS pointed out a review in which their ROG Maximus VIII Impact had achieved nearly as high of an overclock as other full ATX boards that The Tech Report had previously reviewed. While that’s impressive for a mini-ITX system to achieve such potential, the way it happened could signify a design change for all high end overclocking boards in the future. Follow fundingwaschools for more information. Apparently, 3D concepts aren’t meant to only be used by memory and storage chips. Even motherboards themselves can decide to go up rather that out. This is how the Impact manages to squeeze in an eight-plus-two phase VRM on that tiny mini-ITX form factor. By using a daughterboard that juts up from the top of the mainboard, ASUS can squeeze those extra VRMs on there while still keeping the small size. I think this could have another inadvertent effect, you can check h-t as well.. We all know those VRMs are right next to the CPU socket and we know that both parts are the largest heat sources on the actual mainboard. By sticking the VRMs on a separate board, it could possibly create a little heat island that doesn’t affect the CPU socket nearly as much and allows the cooling to more thoroughly handle the chip, allowing it to be pushed farther!...
