    Prime 30th Edition vs Encore?

    Both are the same price, how do the VRM solutions compare?

    Im planning on buying a binned 10980xe (hopefully 4.9-5ghz) which will likely pill 500-600w by itself so I want to make sure the board can handle it.

    I wouldn't mind doing a white build which is why I'm asking about the Prime 30th edition.

    VRM's are similar, the Encore has new model phases from Infineon but the IR3555's are almost as capable and Prime has 16 and 2 8pin EPS's... Pushing under LN2 the Encore should have bit of advantage because of the extra 6pin power connector and the most efficient phases.

    So u can buy whichever u like best...

    So the only advantage the Encore has is in LN2 with ultra high voltages?

    For normal overclocks up to 5GHz under water there shouldn't be a great difference. The Encore VRM's are more efficient and has an extra 6pin power connector to allow more amps to CPU, so LN2 oriented...
