The Intel DZ77GA-70K is equipped with two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots and support both CrossFireX and SLI. There are four DDR3 DIMM slots and Intel has color coded bank A and bank B to avoid confusion. Complementing the Z77's six SATA ports (two 6Gb/s), Intel includes a Marvell 6Gb/s controller that can handle four SATA 6Gb/s ports, though the DZ77GA-70K only uses three: two are onboard near the Z77's SATA ports and one is on the I/O panel.
