Overclockers can add additional power to the processor with Dual 8-Pin connectors which is the same scheme as their XPower Z87 motherboard.
The electrical components are well hidden beneath the large U-shaped heatsink block referred to as “M” cool design. The Z77 MPower used heatpipe cooling system which ran through a set of heatsink, it could be possible that a similar cooling mechanism is featured on the new Z87 MPower motherboard. The motherboard does retain its black and yellow design scheme. Another heatsink would be allocated to the PCH that comes with a striking half “M” design scheme that looks nice.
