some Gigabyte support more than the specified 205W, the Gigabyte mu71-su0 and Gigabyte C621-WD12, Gigabyte MD61-SC2Do some boards check the CPU TDP and reject it if it exceeds the rated board TDP of usually 205W?
Do Gigabyte boards do this?
the TDP is half the truth. the 240W OEM cpu draws more long time current and the VRM overloads.
supermicro do, if you see max. TDP 205W the 240W cpu will not start.
there are some third party 270W supermicro X11DPi-N(CT) & X11DAi-N(CT) with updated VRMs.
ASRock EPC621D8A does, but supports up to 255W because of the W-3175X.
same seems to EP2C621D8, EP2C621D16-4LP, EP2C621D12 WS but they don't have the W-3175X is the support list.
