Hi all, this is a continuation of my previous LGA 1200 VRM list including primarily Z490 boards, I made a new thread since I can't edit the previous one any more. I've added preliminary info for the new 500-series boards, including H and B series chipsets since these might actually be more interesting this time around for enthusiast builds since they added XMP and memory OCing as functionality on these chipsets.

To view the 500-series info, use the different sheet tabs at the bottom of the window.

Credits:
  • asdkj1740@OCN for compiling a shortlist with many sources
  • Cautilus, Sinhardware, and all the other people who have previously made VRM lists for making useful starting points and giving me many ideas
  • Buildzoid from AHOC for pioneering useful metrics for VRM performance
  • All the sources for taking their time to look under the heatsinks and/or test the VRMs themselves
Some key points:
  • VRM list including most Z490 boards and most Z590, H570, B560, and other 500-series models as well.
  • Format based on older VRM lists such as those by Sinhardware (Haswell and earlier) and Cautilus (AM4).
  • Quick and useful reference for approximate VRM performance, where possible checked against real test results...
  • Most useful figures taken from datasheets (e.g maximum efficiency current of powerstages)
  • Links to datasheets and reviews where possible.
  • Additional sheets for individual component quality to be able to better estimate performance of untested VRMs.
To Do (in no particular order):
  • Finish 500-series info
  • More test results
  • Add secondary VRM info
  • Finish VRM performance/efficiency figures
  • Find datasheets for TDA214xx and ISL993xx powerstages
  • Expand powerstage, drmos, and mosfet ratings sheets
  • Info on capacitor arrangement (?)
  • Warnings for bad performance (?)
  • AHOC ripple measurements (?)
  • Memory OC performance info (?)
  • General OC performance info (?)

Hi, thanks for the comment. I haven't had much time to update the Z590 list yet but I'll probably end up resorting to the anandtech list for some of them.

Here are all the slides, some of the direct links i posted don't work anymore...

Cheers, I'll look to add these some time tomorrow and make a full pass over the Z590 section to get it in a reasonably finished state.
