The CPU voltage regulator circuit of the Biostar TA75A+ has four phases for the CPU
main voltage (VDD a.k.a. Vcore) and one for the CPU VDDNB voltage (integrated memory controller). We couldn’t figure out how the CPU VDDP voltage (integrated video controller) is generated, and probably doesn’t have a separate voltage regulator. Therefore, this motherboard uses a “4+1” configuration.
This motherboard uses solid ferrite-core coils, which present less energy loss than iron-core coils (i.e., they improve efficiency) and solid capacitors.
The motherboard provides a series of five LEDs for you to monitor its phases. See Figure 10.
