EVGA has listed their EPower Board 2.0 on their website, which is a separate VRM board that is designed purely to provide certain parts of your PC with extra power. These parts include video cards, motherboard or any other part that requires high-current low-voltage power.
The EVGA EPower board is designed to operate with one voltage output: VCORE output - Voltage adjustment range of 800mV to 2000mV. Current source up to 400A.
EVGA list a "Recommended Toolkit", which is detailed below:
- AWG12 or AWG10 Copper Wire with Insulation
- 60W or 80W Soldering Iron
- Digital Multimeter for Resistance and Voltage Checks
- EVGA EVBot with 680 Classified Firmware
- 80 or 120mm +12V DC FAN with 3-pin header for VRM Cooling
- Flux and Solder for Wire Joints
This gear is for serious folks, who intend on pushing the limits of their hardware and thus EVGA provide the EPower board with a 30-day DOA warranty. EVGA also note that using this product will void the warranty on your video card(s) or motherboard. But, it's all part of the fun and games, isn't it?
