ASUS to upgrade VRM of its X299 ROG Rampage VI Apex

Posted on Monday, July 17 2017 @ 20:53:00 CEST by

Last month overclocker der8auer blasted Intel's X299 platform for the inconsistent overclocking experience and the design errors on many motherboards. Now der8auer reports he worked together with ASUS and that the motherboard maker will be rolling out an updated version of its X299 ROG Rampage VI Apex motherboard.

This new model will feature a better VRM heatsink design, a backplate behind the VRM area to further increase heat dissipation and mounting points for an additional fan:
The new design, which has added engineering hours behind it compared to the original solution, sports threaded fins to increase airflow through the VRM cooling block. Previously, this block was just that - a solid one - which didn't facilitate or take advantage of any airflow your case might offer. In addition, ASUS has also added mounting points for a small, dedicated fan for an increased cooling capacity. Also worth mentioning is the addition of a backplate behind the VRM area of the motherboard, so as to further increase heat dissipation.
