  1. I see. Well thank you all for the information, unfortunately the decision was taken out of my hands. My daughter saw the two boards I was looking at (ASROCK and ASUS) and she saw the RGB on the ASUS board. So she is very adamant about that board.
  2. It is a mini ITX case with an aio for the CPU. Idk about air flow ...
  3. I was already shown that we aren't talking about the VRMs on the DIMs.
  4. Wouldn't that hurt performance or at least OC performance? It is my main hessitation with this board. All the other brands have heatsinks there.
  5. Why does it not need a heatsink on the VRMs above the CPU slot? Are those for the iGPU or something that doesn't need alot of power or over clocking?
  6. I was under the impression that this chip is unlocked in its current state, although I never tried before taking down the system.
  7. The only thing I read is that the Black Edition is unlocked. However the normal one is unlocked as well. So it makes no sense to me.
  8. So then I guess the question is what is the difference between the OEM and Black Edition? Wouldn't all the CPUs be OEM?
  9. I am mainly trying to figure out if my FX-8370 is the black edition or not. The part number on the CPU is FD8370FRW8KHK. I am trying to sell this to cover the cost of a new build and was asked if this was the Black Edition. I bought it second hand awhile ago and it never came with the box. Would love some help on this. Thank you.
  10. I've seen evidence that AsRock was lying about the type and the marker of the VRMs they were putting on their AM4 boards. I am worried about the accuracy of Asrock's z370 boards...
  11. All the other motherboards have the heatsink on the DRAM VRMs. Unless I am confusing what the VRMs are above the CPU socket are. I thought those are the DRAM VRMs for mini-ITX boards.
  12. No m.2 in this build for awhile. The ASRock one worries me because it doesn't have a heatsink on the DRAM VRMs.
  13. I am torn between these two. And I need to pick one asap. My CPU has arrived. I have everything but the mobo.
  14. I am debating between these two motherboards right now. I wish this thread had more to it and the voting was less even....
  15. My only concern with the ASRock board is the lack of a heatsink on the top VRMs. I think they are the DRAM VRMs. Although I don't know how much that influences performance.
