EVGA Z97 CLASSIFIED CREATIVE AUDIO DRIVER
EVGA took innovative liberties with component placement and design, rotating most of the ports on the board's edge by 90 degrees so that the cables sit parallel to the board's surface when engaged. The back of the board's PCB is relatively clear of components and circuitry.
The area directly behind in the CPU is completely void of components minimizing the risk EVGA Z97 Classified Creative Audio board damage from the cooler back plate resting on top of or crushing components. Note that the audio subsystem supports up to 6-speaker 5. The grey port in the lower right of the audio riser is a dedicated headphone port.
EVGA also includes a rear panel port enclosure that fits over the entire rear panel assembly, fixed to the board via the two mounting screw holes on either side of the rear panel area. EVGA EVGA Z97 Classified Creative Audio able to accommodate 8x bandwidth in tri and quad-card operation using a PLX bridge chip sitting underneath the heat sink to the right of the PCI-Express slot area of the board. The audio subsystem components are located above the PCI-Express slots.
EVGA integrated a Creative Labs Core3D audio chipset into the board, as well as discrete headphone amp and preamp chips, to provide superior audio fidelity, Even though their is no PCB separator line evident, the audio components are electrically isolated from the rest of the board components to minimize distortion and interference between the audio subsystem and EVGA Z97 Classified Creative Audio other integrated board components. Notice that the PCI-Express power connector is rotated 90 degrees, pointing out towards the outer edge of the board, so that the cable site parallel to the plane of the board when engaged.
The 6-pin power connector accepts a six pin video power connector from the system system PSU to provide extra power to the PCI-Express x16 slots when using multiple video cards with the board.

Notice that the fan header is rotated EVGA Z97 Classified Creative Audio degrees, pointing out towards the outer edge of the board, so that the cable sits parallel to the plane of the board when engaged. Note that the port is controlled by an on board Marvell controller chip.
ATTO was configured to test against transfer sizes from 0. The drive tests were repeated three times with the highest repeatable read and write speeds recorded.
The SSD on either port of the Marvell controller performed similarly, but performance was about half or more of what it should have been. The LanBench network benchmarking software was used to generate send and receive traffic between the local EVGA Z97 Classified Creative Audio remote systems over a five minute period with packet size set to and connection count set to A LanBench server was set up on the remote system to generate or receive traffic for the tests performed. The upload and download tests were repeated three times with the highest repeatable average throughput and the lowest repeatable average CPU utilization percentage recorded.
