Z97M-ITX/ac Intel® Z97 Chipset The next generation NexFET MOSFETs provide lower Rds(on) 2.9 mΩ, delivering higher efficiency and lower temperature. NexFET MOSFET for Memory Power NexFET MOSFET Power PAK HOT Pure black PCB appearance. The new Sapphire Black PCB represents rock-solid quality and gives the motherboard a more mysterious touch. Premium Alloy Choke Sapphire Black PCB ELNA Audio Caps Who says high quality audio is only available on high-end motherboards? ASRock applied ELNA audio capacitors on mainstream and entry-level motherboards! Compared with traditional solid caps, the leakage current of ELNA audio caps is merely 3uA. This is the key to reduce noise level significantly and satisfy even the pickiest audiophiles. Cool The new generation alloy chokes effectively increase up to 90% saturation current and feature a highly magnetic and heat resistant design, making the motherboard more efficient, stable and reliable. Saturation Current Premium Alloy Choke 38A 90% Better!
