10 Layer PCB
High layer count enhances stability both for heavy loads as well as high overclocking.
High Gold Content for CPU Socket
Higher volume of precious metal (Gold) used in the sockets greatly improves the conductivity and produces a cleaner signal due to less resistance/impedance.
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.
4 Phase PWM
A 4 Phase PWM helps to ensure that the power reaching the processor is clean and stable.
