Improving upon the design and features of the X99 Micro, the X99 Micro2 LGA 2011-3 Micro-ATX Motherboard from EVGA upgrades the original design with USB 3.1 Type-C, additional SATA III ports, and more. Designed to fit in cases that support a micro-ATX form factor. This 9.6 x 9.6" motherboard supports Intel Core i7 processors, the LGA 2011-3 socket, and the Intel X99 chipset.
The micro-ATX form factor of the X99 Micro2 has four DIMM slots that are able to support up to 64GB of quad-channel memory at speeds of 2133 MHz and higher. There are also a total of ten SATA III 6 Gb/s ports that support RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, and JBOD, plus one M.2 Slot M that supports speeds up to 32 Gb/s. Additionally, there are three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots that support 1x16, 2x16, 2x16, and 1x8, with the listed lane distribution requiring a 40 lane CPU. One 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C port is integrated, as are six 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 ports (four at the rear panel and two onboard) and six 480 Mb/s USB 2.0 ports (four at the rear panel and two onboard).
