The VRM is in a 4+2 phase configuration controlled by an International Rectifier digital PWM controller, the IR35201. In this case, the controller is in 4+2 phase mode. Each of the phases uses a single International Rectifier IR3556 fully integrated PowIRstage rated for up to 50A and a CooperBussmann inductor with a saturation current of 76A. These are very high quality for a motherboard at this price point, and great for high-density VRMs such as this.

The memory VRM is controlled by a Richtek RT8120 found on the rear of the motherboard. It seems to be in a single phase single high-side dual low-side MOSFET configuration.
