VRM Thermal Design
The ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II uses new alloy chokes that deliver better efficiency, and high-quality thermal pads to help transfer heat from the VRM array to a sink that has ample surface area for the latest processors. And to ensure critical components always make optimal contact, there’s a backplate on the rear of the board that helps balance MOSFET temperatures while providing structural reinforcement.
An integrated heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
