Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i just watched a few of prebuild pc video and some of them are reputable company(MSI, Asus, Dell...)

The same motherboard can be purchased on IT store. Here is my question: Why these things on the motherboard is missing, but they are originally located on the motherboard?

Those things would be called 'heatsinks', which the motherboard in the top picture still has; just much much smaller.

Not sure why this company doesn't have those on their 'version' of the motherboard, but I would have to assume it's for cost saving reasons.

because these are sadly subpart boards that oem's use. 

these are called heatinks and they cool the mosfets.

I'd say the larger heatsinks look better, but the smaller ones might actually have more surface area, due to the fins. I could imagine that it is actually better for airflow. But you'd have to test it to know for sure.

For that specific motherboard, it might not be an issue at all, because the VRM underneath might be so efficient that the cooling is not important, but I'd be pretty pissed if that happened on a low end motherboard.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
