The PWM is all digital design. There are 17 phases divided into 12-phase CPU, 1-phase VTT, 2-phase DDR and 2-phase GPU.

1 X PS2 KB/Mouse
1 X D-Sub / DVI-D / HDMI / DisplayPort
6 X USB 3.0/2.0(Blue)
2 X RJ-45 LAN
1 X S/PDIF optical output
5 X audio jacks

mSATA SSD slot for small capacity SSD users.
Bundling with Intel Smart Response technology, you can enhance your system performance. After installing mSATA, SATA2 5th port will not work.

Even though heat sink is still gun liked design, the military feeling is not as strong as former G1.

VRM heat sink new design provides more surface. The appearance is better than former design in my own opinion.
The matte processed design makes better texture. Also the radiating ability is better.

UEFI Interface and OC Setup
Intel Core i7-3770K default ratio is 35. I set it at 48, which means 4800MHz.
X.M.P. item enabled. This CORSAIR DDR3 will set at 2133 parameters.
System Memory Multiplier adjusted by DDR3 quality. In the picture, I set at 24, means DDR3 2600.

Advanced CPU Items
You can set individual CPU Core ratio here. You also can choose how many cores to work.
I used to disable C1E/C3C6 and EIST power saving features when OC.

DDR3 2400 latency setting is CL10 12-11-27 1T.
Capacity is 4GB X 4 => 16GB

This 3770K, OC to 4.8GHz needs CPU Vcore to set at 1.380V.

DDR3 2400 1T needs DRAM Voltage to set at 1.600V.

Ivy Bridge structure temperature is higher than former one when OC to 4.5GHz.
No matter 3770K or 3570K, there are some conditions to OC to 4.5~4.8GHz with Z77.
Besides CPU quality, you still need better CPU cooler. High end fan or ware cooler is better choice.
Memory Controller OC ability is much improved in Ivy Bridge. But you need better quality IC to reach 2133~2600.
