8 Layer PCB
High layer count enhances stability both for heavy loads as well as high overclocking.
4-Way SLi Support
The EVGA Z170 Classified is rated for up to 4-Way SLi to handle the most demanding video loads.
The Z170 CLASSIFIED includes support for full size storage and WiFi from the M. 2 jacks.
High Gold Content For CPU Socket
Higher volume of precious metal (300% Gold) used in the sockets greatly improves the conductivity and produces a cleaner signal due to less resistance/impedance.
90 Degree 24-Pin Connector
Not having the main power for the board facing perpendicular makes it easy to get the cables routed well and out of the way.
8 Phase PWM
An 8 Phase PWM helps to ensure that the power reaching the processor is clean and stable.
PCI-E Disable Switches
No need to remove a card when testing, instead you can disable the slot with a dip-switch. This can greatly reduce the time spent troubleshooting, as you do not need to disassemble anything to isolate PCI-E components.
Onboard Power, Reset and CMOS Reset Buttons
When testing on the Z170, or running it in a benching environment, you do not need to worry about wiring the board to a case to have access to power and reset buttons, as they are built onto the board.
Top Notch Integrated Peripherals
The Z170 Classified is not just focused on the upper end of extreme builds, but also with the smaller components as well. Creative Core3D audio and dual integrated Intel NICs ensure you have the best quality sound and network connections right out of the box.
