2. 20+1 power stages
The VRM features 20+1 power stages, each rated to handle 105 amps.
3. MicroFine alloy chokes
Each power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
4. 10K black metallic capacitors
Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.
TEAMED POWER ARCHITECTURE
DDR5 WITH AEMP
1. Metal cover
2. G1/4" threaded design
3. Watertight rubber gasket
4. Nickel water channel
5. Large nickel surface area
CROSSCHILL EK III
Engineered with a nickel cooling channel that's incredibly effective at removing heat.
2. M.2 heatsinks
Three dedicated heatsinks keep up to three M.2 drives in the optimum operating temperature range for consistent performance and reliability.
3. Solid steel backplate
An electro-galvanized, cold-rolled coil construction backplate resists bending and helps draw heat away from the VRM.
4. Chipset heatsink
A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to maintain optimum operating temperatures.
COOLER BY DESIGN
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, providing up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments.
2. Marvell® AQtion 10 Gbps Ethernet
Designed to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10 times the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos and system backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.
3. WiFi 6E antenna
The antenna has two built-in transmitters and receivers to enable faster transmission speeds, and it supports the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz bands.
4. Adjustable Design
Four-way positioning enables better signal reception.
5. Magnetic Base
A powerful magnetic base secures the antenna on the top or side of the PC case.

Audio Line Shielding
Blocks electromagnetic interference from the motherboard or add-ons to provide cleaner audio.
The ESS® SABRE 9018Q2C integrated DAC amplifier is capable of providing -115 dB total harmonic distortion (THD+N) for playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of the audio track. In addition, the 121 dB dynamic range (DNR) provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch.
ALC 4082 codec
The ALC4082 codec uses USB instead of the conventional high-definition audio (HDA) interface and improves playback audio resolution from 192 to 384 kHz.
A unique design allows the codec's impedance-sensing function to be ported with either the front or rear headphone outputs.
High-quality integrated components help produce warm, natural-sounding audio with exceptional clarity.
