This microATX motherboard has an AM3 + socket that delivers maximum compatibility not only with the 32nm Bulldozer and Llano processors but also with the older Phenom II, Athlon II and Sempron models. The board is based on the AMD 760G/SB710 chipset, which is connected to a memory controller with 2 slots supporting dual-channel DDR3 memory at a speed up to 1866Mhz and with a maximum total capacity of 16 GB.
The ATI Radeon HD 3000 integrated graphics solution also features an analogue VGA output and digital DVI on the rear panel. Alternatively, a single PCI-E Express 2.0 x16 slot is available for a GPU or other powerful cards (of course, compatibility with the older version 1.1 is maintained). The motherboard is equipped with a total of 8 USB 2.0 connectors, 4 of which are headers on the board and 4 on the back panel.
In complement to the already stellar I/O, this board also offers 2 USB 3.0 connectors. Plus an integrated Realtek ALC 887 High Definition Audio eight-channel sound card with three audio jacks and a Realtek 8111GR gigabit Ethernet network card for your communication needs. For hard drives and optical drives, four Serial ATA 3Gb/s connectors are available.
A unique feature of this model is the EPU (Energy Processing Unit). It is a chip located on the system's board designed to save energy. This model also has a number of unique features, Core Unlocker, Anti-Surge Protection and EZ-Flash 2.
