Engineered for the mITX enthusiast with an ultra-compact form factor that still runs at full performance. Experience a GUI BISO that is focused on functionality, new software interface for overclocking in the O.S.,high quality components, premium Creative Core3D audio and more.

It starts with a full 10 Layer PCB, improving overall overclock stability and PCB cooling. The memory trace layout is optimized for compatibility, improved overclocking and 2 DIMM memory support. The Z97 MICRO also features a 6 Phase PWM for the cleanest variable power switching and efficient power to your CPU. A slew of great onboard devices including 4 SATA 6G ports, Intel Gigabit LAN, Creative Core3D and a USB 3.0 controller for a total of 6 USB 3.0 devices.

The GUI BIOS has been further enhanced, and is brought down to a very lean state while achieving its main goal of keeping it easy to use and follow while not compromising at all on functionality. The way a modern BIOS should be.

  • 2 DIMMs for up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM
  • Memory speeds up to 2666MHz and above

High layer count enhances stability both for heavy loads as well as high over-clocks.


Higher volume of precious metal (Gold) used in the sockets greatly improves the conductivity and produces a cleaner signal due to less resistance/impedance.


When testing on the Z97, or running it in a benching environment where you do not need to worry about wiring the board to a case to have access to power and reset buttons, they are built onto the board.


A 6 Phase PWM helps to ensure that the power reaching the processor is clean and stable.


The Z97 MICRO supports the newest slot architecture with support for several device types, including Wifi and Bluetooth.



These motherboards also feature EVGA's new GUI BIOS that focuses on the best overclocking support, functionality, and are straight and to the point, the way a modern BIOS should be.
