    ” Additionally there is the 8 “hybrid” phase VRM tucked underneath the heatsink to assist with overclocking.”

    This is somewhat misleading. The Ranger has 4 phase with a doubler. Different from the true 8 phase present on the Gene and Hero.

      Hence why it is a hybrid phase VRM not a true 8 phase.

        Be specific.

        Many would just think “hybrid” could mean the controller is a hybrid analog/digital type.

          So which is better this or the asrock exteme6 or gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK

          • benbenkr

            The Gigabyte by quite a margin. True 8 phase goodness there for some very hard i7 OCing.

    Can anyone comment on the audio capabilities of this motherboard compared to entry/mid-range sound cards (like the Asus Xonar DX)?
