ECS launched the Z97I-DRONE and H97I-DRONE mini-ITX, socket LGA1150 motherboards. The two are identical to each other, with the only difference being the chipset. The Z97I-DRONE supports CPU and memory overclocking.
Drawing power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors, the board features a 5-phase CPU VRM. The CPU socket is wired to a lone PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot, and two DDR3 DIMM slots. The only other expansion slot is an mPCIe 2.0 x1. Storage connectivity includes five SATA 6 Gb/s.
Display connectivity includes one each of Dual-Link DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. Four USB 3.0 ports, 8-channel HD audio with TOSLINK SPDIF output, and gigabit Ethernet make for the rest of them.
