The DZ77BH-55K Media Series Desktop Board (Single Pack) from Intel is based on the Intel Z77 express chipset and is optimized for Intel K processors. It is an ideal board for gamers, overclockers and media enthusiasts alike. Equipped with Intel Visual BIOS*, this board satisfies all the needs of performance enthusiasts.
Intel Visual BIOS offers a graphical interface and animated controls that allow you to configure settings faster and take full advantage of your Intel K processor. It also allows easy overclocking of core, graphics and memory. The Intel Visual BIOS operates by your choice of touch screen, keys or mouse. All controls are literally at your fingertips, in a format you can visualize.
Advanced power and overclocking** capabilities of the DZ77BH-55K Desktop Board coupled with dramatic responsiveness improvements delivered by the Intel Smart Response technology provide the board of choice for gamers and media creation enthusiasts alike. Intel Smart Response technology provides SSD-like performance and brings up to 50% improvement in responsiveness as compared to an HDD-only system. The desktop board also includes other new responsiveness technologies such as Intel Rapid Start technology***, which allows you to quickly resume the system from sleep and standby modes.
Note:*Intel Visual BIOS may not be available at the launch of this product & may require BIOS update.**Altering clock frequency or voltage may reduce system stability & life of the system & processor, cause the processor & other components to fail, reduce system performance, cause additional damage & affect system data integrity.***BIOS update may be required to support Rapid Start technology. This feature may not be available at initial launch of product.
Supports Intel Core i7 Processor in the LGA1155 Package
The DZ77BH-55K Desktop Board is highly optimized for Intel K processors. It features Intel Turbo Boost technology* and Intel Hyper-Threading technology** for exceptional performance and scalability. With 8 MB shared Intel Smart Cache, it enables dynamic and efficient allocation of cache.
*Turbo Boost technology requires a PC w/ a processor w/ Turbo Boost technology capability. Turbo Boost technology performance depends on hardware, software & system configuration.**HT technology requires a system w/ a processor supporting HT technology & an HT Technology-enabled chipset, BIOS & OS. Performance depends on the specific hardware & software used.
Intel Z77 Express Chipset
It features Intel Smart Response technology that provides SSD-like performance and brings up to 50% improvement in responsiveness as compared to an HDD-only system.
Four DIMM Slots
Designed to support overclocked* DDR3 1600 + O.C.** memory, it delivers up to 32 GBps memory bandwidth.
*Altering clock frequency/voltage may reduce stability & life of system & processor, cause processor & other parts to fail, reduce performance, cause other damages & affect system data integrity.**Max peak memory bandwidth requires 4 DDR3 modules to be populated in each memory slot. DDR3 2400 memory support needs advanced knowledge of BIOS & memory tuning; individual results may vary.
The desktop board has six Super-Speed USB 3.0 ports in total (4 external and 2 via internal header), two IEEE 1394a ports in total (1 external and 1 via internal header) and ten Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports in total (4 external and 6 via internal header), including two high-current/fast charging USB 2.0 ports.
Two PCIe 3.0 x16 Slots
With this feature, the board provides the ability to scale to dual x8 graphics support for certified AMD CrossFireX and NVIDIA SLI.
PCIe and PCI Connectors
It supports PCIe and legacy PCI devices.
This board features four SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, three SATA 3.0 Gbps ports and one eSATA 3.0 Gbps port.
Intel Rapid Storage Technology
Intel Rapid Storage technology increases performance and reliability with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, 10.
Intel Smart Response and Intel Rapid Start Technologies
Intel Smart Response technology provides SSD-like performance with HDD capacity. It also improves response time dramatically when a small capacity SSD is used in conjunction with a large HDD. Intel Rapid Start technology* allows you to quickly resume the system from sleep and standby modes.
*BIOS update may be required to support Rapid Start technology. This feature may not be available at initial launch of product.
(7.1 + 2) 10-Channel Intel HD Audio* (7.1)
This feature enables high-quality integrated audio that rivals the performance of high-end discrete solutions.
*Intel HD Audio requires a system w/ suitable Intel chipset & a motherboard w/ an appropriate codec & necessary drivers installed. Sound quality depends on actual implementation, controller, codec, drivers & speakers
Intel Gigabit Ethernet LAN
The desktop board features onboard 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet LAN connectivity.
Consumer Infrared Receiver and Transmitter
This feature enables receiving, learning and emitting capabilities. It controls up to two additional CE devices with your PC and eliminates the need for a USB CIR dongle.
This switch allows access to BIOS for easy overclocking* and recovery.
*Altering clock frequency or voltage may reduce system stability & life of the system & processor, cause the processor & other components to fail, cause reductions in system performance, cause additional damage and affect system data integrity.
