An excellent mini-ITX motherboard with a ton of features. The wireless antenna provided is top-notch as are the more motherboard-bound things.

Had everything I was looking for in a motherboard. The only compromises are the internal USB 3 connection is placed in a bit of an awkward spot (not a problem if you go with water cooling though) and there is only one system fan header which supports 0.5 amps (x 12 volts = 6 watts). That was just enough for me to daisy chain 3 case fans off of.

Wireless chip does not work. The connection randomly disconnects and connects again. Everything else about the board is perfect

from completed build First Ever Build: The Manta Ray

Has everything I could possible look for or for my needs. The wireless works fine, with full bars. And the bluetooth is top notch. The speaker stays connected even from about 30 feet away. It is the first motherboard I have ever owned, and it is working fine for me, and encountered no problems at all. The bios is also simple to navigate through.

Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 Mini-ITX - I'm a big fan of the Mini ITX form factor, and a huge fan of Gigabyte too. So this was pretty much a no-brainer choice for me. Gamer G1 Series Z170 board that has top-notch build quality and super performance as it is handling a 4.6GHz overclock like a champ!

I purchased this solely based of Maximum PC's review of it, as I was not versed in the market at the time. I am quite pleased with the features it offers and it meets every need you have in an itx chassis. The bios is easily navigated though could be a little more precise in description. Most importantly, the manual as all pinouts clearly labeled, which was important in this build (I'll get to that later). An added bonus is the ability to enable to disable the audio light, it's red, so it can be a detractor for the eyes.

I chose this board over the Asus Z170I Pro Gaming board based on reviews. Honestly I could have gone either way but this board was $10 cheaper. I have not been disappointed! Everything works perfectly after installing the drivers from the website, not the included CD. The only complaint I have is the placement of the USB 3 header which is squeezed in next to the CPU socket, so close that the cable actually barely fits! Other than that this board has performed perfectly and looks great. Some have complained of wifi issues but mine has worked perfectly.

This motherboard can overclock like a champ and has great audio! The bios isn't necessarily intuitive like some of the others out there but it is definitely feature packed. Also, if you're debating between this and the z170 wifi definately go with this one, I got both and this one is the clear winner.

Looks great, bios look basic.

from completed build RX 480 FTW!!!

Great looking, nice UEFI, but one star off for USB3.0 header. Right in the middle of the board, if I saw this before buying, would have gone for Asus Z170I Pro Gaming
