An ASMedia ASM1184e PCI-E hub expands upon the basic PCI-E 2.0 (1 to 3) from the chipset so that all the extra controllers (SATA and WIFI) have enough bandwidth. Multiple NXP quick switches move around PCI-E bandwidth. Two ASMedia ASM1061 provide four extra SATA6Gb/s ports.

The motherboard's main SuperIO is the nuvoton NCT6779D which provides the PS/2 port on the rear IO, helps control the fans, and ultimately monitors the system. A nuvoton N76E885AT20 provides RGB LED support.
