Power and Software
Finally, having the ability to have so many tools at your disposal is pointless if the quality of the power delivery isn't clean and consistent, and the Z97X SOC certainly has all of the high end CAPs and MOSFETs you could hope to find thanks to the PowIRstage and black 10K CAPs.
Other features, as if what we've seen so far isn't enough to whet your appetite, are the customisable UEFI BIOS we first saw on the 8 series motherboards and a ton of additional software to allow you as much control from the desktop as you have in the BIOS. They've even brought back the start menu to Windows 8.1.
