If you are an extreme overclocker Gigabyte has got you covered with their SuperOverclock VRM GPU boards that they were showing off at Computex 2014 this week. These auxiliary VRM boards are of course aimed solely at professional overclockers.
The VRM board is known as the G-Power board and is a lot similar to EVGA’s EPower board, but much more beefier in terms of design. The VRM slave board actually has to be manually soldered to the graphics card. The board will add 750 watts of power to any Radeon R9 290X or GeForce GTX 780 GHz/Ti graphics card.
The G-Power board gets power from 5, yes 5 8-pin PCI-Express connectors and is actively cooled by the fan+heatsink cooler. Of course no GPU can draw that much power currently so the G-Power board makes it possible and so there are no voltage drops during extreme overclocking sessions.
Obviously the G-Power board is still in the development stages so no word on when it will be available.
