EVGA Z170 Motherboards Comparison Chart

8 Layer PCB

8 Layer PCB*

High layer count enhances stability both for heavy loads as well as high overclocking.

4-Way SLI® Support

4-Way SLI® Support*

The EVGA Z170 Classified is rated for up to 4-Way SLI® to handle the most demanding video loads.

M.2 Support

M.2 Support

The EVGA Z170 lineup includes support for full size storage and/or WiFi from the M.2 jacks.

High Gold Content For CPU Socket

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

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

8 Phase PWM*

An 8 Phase PWM helps to ensure that the power reaching the processor is clean and stable.

PCI-E Disable Switches

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 in troubleshooting, as you do not need to disassemble anything to isolate PCI-E components.

Onboard Power, Reset and CMOS Reset Buttons

Onboard Power, Reset and CMOS Reset Buttons

When testing on the Z170, or running it in a benching environment where you do not need to worry about wiring the board to a case to have access to power and reset buttons, they are built onto the board.

Top Notch Integrated Peripherals

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 connection right out of the box.
