Circuit Analysis


The Z370 GODLIKE GAMING reveals its secrets when the heat sinks and shields come off.


The VRM on this motherboard is in a 12+4+1+1 phase configuration for the VCore, iGPU, VCCSA, and VCCIO. The main PWM is an IR35201, one of the most popular high-end digital PWMs on the market, and it's being used in 6+2 phase mode. Each power stage for the VCCSA and VCCIO is an IR3555 60A PowIRstages.


The motherboard uses eight IR3599 phase doublers/quadruplers in doubler mode to take 6+2 phases and double them to 12+4 phases. The VCCSA and VCCIO and the memory VRM use Primarion PV3205 digital PWMs and "4C024" and "4C029" SOP-8 MOSFETs from ON Semiconductor. The VCCSA and VCCIO each are one phase while the memory VRM is two phases.
