Colourful have just officially launched their flagship socket LGA1150 motherboard. The iGame Z97, also known as the “Flame Warrior” motherboard is the product of their partnership with Chaintech. The motherboard made its first appearance at Computex earlier this year, but it’s now ready for the consumer market.

The board features a standard ATX form-factor, drawing power from the usual 24-pin ATX connection and an 8-pin EPS connector. Overclocking looks promising too, with a 16-phase CPU VRM, driver-MOSFETs and Poscap capacitors that should allow good power delivery. You’ll also find on-board base-clock tweaking switches, auto-OC buttons, PCIe slot power gating, and a feature rich UEFI dual-BIOS.

There are four DDR3 DIMM slots, three PCI-e 3.0 16X (electrical x8/x4/x4 when all three are populated, x8/x8 when two are, and x16 when one is.) This is backed up by four PCIe 2.0 x1 slots, eight SATA 6 Gb/s ports, mSATA 6 Gb/S port (can also be used as mPCIe, dual like DVI, D-Sub, HDMI, DisplayPort, Killer E2200 Ethernet, 8 Channel HD, Six USB 3.0 ports (four rear, two header). Overall it doesn’t sound like connectivity is going to be an issue and this is pretty much what we would expect to see from any flagship board.
