Open Box: Images shown are from the NEW version of this item and are for reference only. The actual Open Box product may differ in packaging and included accessories, but has been tested to ensure basic functionality.
Engineered for the performance users with excellent overclocking features. Includes a GUI BIOS that is focused on functionality, new software interface for overclocking in the O.S., high quality components, M.2 storage option and more.
It starts with a full 6 Layer PCB, improving overall overclock stability and PCB cooling. The memory trace layout is optimized for compatibility, improved overclocking and 4 DIMM memory support. The Z97 FTW 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 additional 2 Port SATA 6G controller for a total of 8 SATA 6 ports, Intel Gigabit LAN 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.
6 Layer PCB
4 DIMMs for up to 32GB of DDR3 RAM
Memory speeds up to 2666MHz and above
SLI + PhysX Support
Intel Gigabit NIC
8 total internal SATA3/6G ports
Native USB3 support
PCI-E Disable Switches
6 LAYER PCB
High layer count enhances stability both for heavy loads as well as high over-clocks.
HIGH GOLD CONTENT FOR CPU SOCKET
Higher volume of precious metal (Gold) used in the sockets greatly improves the conductivity and produces a cleaner signal due to less resistance/impedance.
PCI-E DISABLE SWITCHES
No need to remove a card when testing, instead you can disable the slot with a dip-switch, this can greatly reduce the time spent in troubleshooting , as you do not need to disassemble anything to isolate PCI-E components.
2 WAY SLI SUPPORT + PHYSX
The Z97 FTW is rated for SLI + PhysX to handle to most demanding video loads.
6 PHASE PWM
A 6 Phase PWM helps to ensure that the power reaching the processor is clean and stable.
The Z97 FTW supports the newest slot architecture with support for several device types, including Wifi and Bluetooth.
DUAL BIOS SUPPORT
The Z97 FTW comes preloaded with Dual BIOS for very comprehensive protection. Whether you pushed a brink OC until it is not bootable, or you suffered a power outage during a BIOS flash, you can always switch to the other BIOS, boot as usual, then if desired, hot-flash the faulted BIOS.
ONBOARD POWER,RESET AND CMOS REST BUTTONS
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.
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.
