    More is better, as Mr. Fox would undoubtedly agree, but only of you're comparing apples to apples. The ratings and quality between identically-sized components can vary immensely. So you'd have to look up the part nrs. (on mouser or digikey, for example) and compare their values. Just to give you an idea; there's ~25,000 different vrms listed, ~65,000 different inductors and a whopping ~250,000 different capacitors. That is only smd though, so there's actually a few 10,000's more of each.

    *sigh*
    Thats what I was getting at. They're selling the M390X for that price, not the WX7100.

    That looks exactly like a w7170m. the list price isnt bad but shipping and other fees may make it the same price as the ebay listings when all things are said and done.

    Last time I checked, W7170M's go for $200, and that is $175 + Bhiner fees, so not really worth it in light of them selling the WX7100 for $275 or a 980M for ~$350. I've also seen a HP WX4170 and have been thinking of picking it up for $190 or best offer

    Got links on the Wx7100?

    Would like to save for later. 980m has easier access but its the same performance and right now I am rather jaded with nvidia at the moment

    @SMGJohn
    please don't confuse the VRM's and Chokes (R22).
    MSI 1070 uses these VRM's:

    (apparently same vrm's used on Clevo mainboards).

    I don't know what *EUROCON* uses.

    Just a quick but in, but XDMA CFX works in my P377SMA with dual M6100's (no VBIOS mods), and it's scoring near a 970M in firestrike (6200/8000 Graphics/10K Physics). Everything seems to work fine, even the 120HZ eDP screen lol

    Its weird the m6100 didnt work on the Ranger with eDP so I assumed they were not enabled for that signal type.

    Of course my motherboard did die later on so thats always a factor.
