From a gaming perspective at 1080p gets hard to justify the price difference from MB+CPU from an Intel solution with i7-4770.

Their is something up with the VRM's on this thing, pics of the deheatsinked board show 22 voltage regulating mosfets(16 in the cpu block and 6 on the nb block) making it 8+3?!?.

It appears this thing has a doubler on it, but don't know much else beyond that. Been looking for good image of the mosfets so i can look up their specs if anyone knows where i can find that?

Surprised the review didn't include any overclocking results.
This board begs for it.
