With a look and feel that stand out in the market, the striking design of the Z97 XPOWER AC is highlighted by water cooling heat sinks and an amazing set of features, catering to power users that just want to get the most speed out of their 24/7 systems or professional extreme overclockers as both can find features that help them get the best performance out of their systems.
Breaking World Records
The new Z97 XPOWER AC is ready to support users in all their overclocking attempts with impressive VRM water cooling, exclusive use of Military Class 4 components and a socket design that is optimized to house any cooling solution. The Z97 XPOWER AC comes with the exclusive Delid Die Guard for overclockers that want to remove the heat spreader of the CPU to optimize its performance, an OC Pen Drive with native drivers and OC profiles and an OC fan stand to assist users with airflow generation during LN2 sessions.
OC Certified is a military class burn-in test for motherboards.
