The audio section of the PCB is physically isolated from the rest of the PCH. The audio system uses an ALC1220 with some Nichicon Gold Series audio capacitors.

We find an Intel i219v PHY, which combines with the integrated MAC in the PCH to provide one Gbit NIC. An ASMedia ASM3152 USB 3.1 controller and Texas Instruments HD3220 type-C switch chip are used to provide the two rear USB 3.1 ports.

Surprisingly we find two 128Mbit 16MB BIOS ROMs for redundancy. The main SuperIO controller is the IT8686E.

An NXP level shifter is used to provide an HDMI port on the rear IO panel. A Texas Instruments GD75232 is used to provide the COM port.
