The motherboard is in a 4+3 phase VRM, and there is no phase doubling. It uses the Intersil ISL95866 PWM controller in 4+3 mode. The CPU VCore and iGPU voltage rails are set up identical to that of many of GIGABYTE's entry-level Z370 motherboards. We find multiple ISL6625A on the CPU and iGPU rails to enhance phase count on top of the integrated driver outputs from the PWM controller. The CPU VCore VRMs use double the number of MOSFETs per phase, while the iGPU phases use the standard number. On Semiconductor NTMFS4C06N is the low-side MOSFET, and the NTMFS4C10N is the high-side MOSFET for each of the power stages.

A Realtek RT8120D for a single phase PWM with driver and three On Semiconductor NTMFS4C06N in a two-low one-high MOSFET configuration produce the memory VRM on this motherboard.
