    Leave the 4W sata/usb controller block out of it and it seems like a great solution

    Yup, looks great until it leaks, then not so much.

    Maybe as a result of the optional increased amperage to the USB ports for charging devices.

    Or, a marketing ploy.

    MOSFET Cooling on 1150 is pointless since the CPUs never need more than 160A of current which spread over 8 phases is nothing
     
    The Von Matrices says thanks.
