The C7Z270-PG's hardware is impressive.

The VRM on this motherboard is a 6+3+1 phase configuration for the core + iGPU + VCCSA. Two Primarion (Infineon) digital PWM controllers, the 6+1 phase PXE1610 and the 4+1 phase PXC1410, control the CPU's phases. Each phase uses a 66A Vitec power inductor and Infineon TDA21232 50A DrMOS. The VRM is extremely overkill but also very efficient.

While the memory VRM has only a single phase, it's still overkill since it uses the same 66A inductor and 50A DrMOS as the CPU VRM. It's controlled by a Primarion PX3143HDM PWM controller.
