SuperMicro C7Z370-CG-IW (Intel Z370) Motherboard Review 16 | TweakTown.com

We see the motherboard in a new light when it's without heat sinks.

The VRM is in a 4+2 phase configuration for the CPU VCore and iGPU voltage rails. All VRM parts in regards to silicon are from Monolithic Power Systems. The MPS MP2955V is a digital multiphase VR13 controller (4+2 phases in this case), and it's the same controller (different last letter) we saw on SuperMicro's full-ATX motherboard. The new PWM controller works with the integrated power stages. SuperO uses the MP86908 50A power Intelli-Phase integrated power stages. The VRM filter stage uses 51A CooperBussman high-current power inductors.

It seems that the VCCSA, VCCIO, and memory VRMs uses Monolithic Power Systems MPQ8633 integrated step down controllers rated for 12A each. We find many of them around the motherboard for minor rail power delivery.
