The audio solution is hidden right under the front side of the PCIe slots and based on a Realtek ALC 1220 CODEC and a combination. You can spot Nichicon audio grade (or at least something similar looking) fine capacitors, suited for high-grade audio equipment to provide rich sound in the bass range and clearer high frequencies. 



Check the heatsinks, pretty cool design. Take note of the upper two metal covers on the x16 PCI-Express slots as they show off a bit. They provide sturdier and stronger slots, handy for very heavy graphics cards. 


Two power connectors 4+8 to power that processor of yours, just using one 8-pin connector is plenty though, in fact, you do not need to use both of them. 


The motherboard phase power delivery design for the processor based on digital power controllers. At the CPU socket, we spot a 10+1+1 digital power phases. The power phases are cooled with a pair of heatsinks. That looks good.
