There are a few mistakes in it.

Like more phase is longer lifespan and less heat....sorry not true, depends on the load the cmos can handle.
Like heat-sinks on regulators is a good idea....also not true, they work just as well without.

And they spend way to much on a bunch of silly coils to filter out unwanted noise from the powersupply ;)

It's interesting for people that want to have an idea what regulators are, but for the rest it's quite boring and more into the marketing area then really interesting :lol_anim:

I just wished they put more attention to powersupply problems in that article and why the caps blow if power is unstable for a long time.
As bad powersupplies put a huge strain on the capacitors...and after enough of that they start to leak....no matter how many phases or coils you have :rolleyes_anim:
