The motherboard has a lot connectivity on the rear IO panel. We spot two NEC based USB 3.0 connectors, next to the eight USB 2.0 ports located at the rear side. We spot Optical and Coaxial TOSLINK S/PDIF audio for eight-channel audio, PS2 mouse/keyboard connector, two eSATA 6G connectors. We see one RJ-45 Ethernet jack supporting Gigabit LAN/WAN.
