As mentioned in the BIOS section the board suffers from not being able to reduce CPU VCore in idle-mode when the CPU is overclocked, but the VRM is improved compared to the Deluxe series. When only slightly overclocked it is close to the MSI P35 Platinum. Only when extreme overclocking is applied it seems the VRM is not very efficient, but this is still a huge step forward for ASUS.
We did run our tests with 2nd LAN and JMB363 disabled and without the LCD-Display.
