Built to bring mainstream performance to higher levels, the Z370 Classified K LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard from EVGA is designed to provide users with power and stability. This motherboard is designed to fit in ATX sized cases, supports the LGA 1151 socket, the Intel Z370 chipset, and is compatible with Windows 10 (64-bit).
The ATX form factor of the Z370 Classified K can support 64GB of DDR4 RAM, or 16GB in each of the four 288-pin DIMM slots at memory speeds of 4133+ MHz (OC). It also has a total of 6 x SATA III 6 Gb/s ports and 2 x M.2 Socket 3 (Key M) slots. Both M.2 slots support 80mm (2280) storage devices and the SATA ports support RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10. There is also one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port, and six USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, all external at the back panel, as well as one USB 3.1 Gen 2 header, one USB 3.1 Gen 1 header (supports two ports), and two USB 2.0 headers (supports four ports), all internal. For those looking to expand their system using PCIe, there is one PCIe Gen 3.0 x16 (x16) slot, one PCIe Gen 3.0 x16 (x8) slot, one PCIe 3.0 x16 (x4) slot, and three PCIe 2.0 x1 slots.
The Z370 Classified K supports integrated graphics from the processor, and this video can be output using the DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 outputs. Dedicated graphics are also supported, and once that GPU is installed, multi-GPU is possible with 2-Way NVIDIA SLI + PhysX technology and 2-Way AMD CrossFire technology. Using the Creative Sound Core3D 5.1-channel audio codec, this motherboard delivers audio with high fidelity, which can be output using the five integrated 3.5mm audio jacks or one optical S/PDIF output. Network connectivity can be achieved using the dual Killer NIC E2500 Gigabit Ethernet jacks, or install a Wi-Fi card in the available M.2 Socket 1 Key E (32mm) slot. Included is an I/O shield, two SATA III data cables, a 2-Way SLI Bridge, an M.2 thermal pad, and a case badge. This motherboard is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.
