The board ships with four SATA connections, which will be enough for most modern system builders, especially within ultra-compact ITX cases. On the rear I/O, the board also supports dual USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (both Type-A) and four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports.  

At this time the pricing and regional availability of this motherboard are unknown.
