Re: Another "Time to upgrade" - 12900 vs 5950 and motherboards

Higher amp VRM will run cooler. Now once you hit 90 amps the gain going to 105 is likely mostly theoretical but much below 90amps will run hotter. Not only are the parts less stressed but they tend to be of higher quality. There are various grades of everything. Cheaper boards won't use the most expensive parts. They might use less layers for the PCB.
