B360GT5S Circuit Analysis
The B360GT5S shows some secrets when we remove the heat sinks.
The VRM is in an 8+2 phase configuration. It uses an Intersil ISL95866 4+3 phase PWM in 4+2 phase mode. It offers two integrated drivers on the first rail and one on the second, which means Biostar had to add two ISL6608 drivers for the VCore's 4 PWM rails and one for the iGPU's 2 PWM rails. The CPU rails are doubled through doubling the component count on each driver. Sinopower SM4354 and SM4377 MOSFETs are used as the low-side and high-side MOSFETs respectively. Considering you cannot overclock a B360 chipset motherboard, this VRM should suffice.
An Anpec APW8828 PWM controller with integrated driver drives a single phase made up of Sinopower SM4377 MOSFETs for the memory VRM.
