ON-Semiconductor NTMFS4C08N (high-side) and NTMFS4C05N (low-side) Power MOSFETs are used instead of NXP PH7030AL/PH3830DL LF-PAKs that were used on the Z87 MPower MAX.

The inductors are 0.47uF “Super Ferrite” chokes and the surrounding capacitors on the CPU area use the same Tantalum-core Hi-c caps used on MSI’s high-end motherboards which are convenient for LN2 overclockers because their low-profile design makes it very easy to insulate (with Dragon Skin or kneaded eraser) the surrounding CPU area. The rest of the capacitors are solid aluminum-core Low-ESR “Dark Cap” capacitors.
