Connecting everything to this mobo was a breeze, bios are user friendly

General: This one is often named as "Entry Level" Mobo, but don't be blinded by your pride, in this case it is damn good to be "entry level".

Features: As of today, if you compare this and Mobo and the more expensive series, you'll find out that this one not only supports 2xSLI and 3xCrossFire, like the "pro gaming ones", but has also a thunderbolt slot, unlike some of them! It has a DVI slot too, in case one of your monitors doesn't have HDMI (which is quite common still)(the Mobo supports 3 monitors). It is in classy white design, and has 6 PMW fan slots (meaning you can run up to 12 fans out of the Mobo itself via y splitter). Aside other specifics, it has Turbo Lan and it runs on 3866 MHz (the best is 4133+, quite good for an "entry level")

Package: Comes in a neat anti-static bag, with sli-dual bridge, 3 sata cables, processor installation tool, few screws and a software CD containing handy Asus software (AI Suite 3, Fan Xpert 4, ..)

*I bought mine during an ongoing action with 20-35EU cashback + 1 Game title of choice, after purchase and registration, making this Mobo even cheaper.

I know, i know, it's an entry level gaming MB. And I realize what people think about this. I even received an "ew" in our discord channel. To all of that my response is, that this is one decent motherboard. It performs very well, generates acceptable temps, has a wide variety of interfaces. I love it. My Girlfriend received the 3D-Printing plans for my new top shield, so there is that going for it ;) One flaw, however, is the shared bus between an m.2 and a sata 6g interface. Oh well.

Good motherboard, plenty of feature and quick overclocker. With one click I was able to get a stable 4.8GHz on my CPU

First time using a z270 board and so far no issues and easy setup. I have an X99 Sabertooth board so I am use to the BIOS layout and configurations.

Due to limitations of my current CPU cooler with this config I can do OC experiences, but won't be much different from the X99 board which is fairly straight forward.

I like the inclusion of the header for the AIO cooler, even though you could use a normal fan header, makes for a nice readout when using ASUS BIOS/Utilities.

The only thing I don't like is that even though this is an AURORA featuring board, by time you add an AIO Cooler, GPU and deal with normal viewing restrictions with a side panel. Its hardly noticeable except at the bottom. If you were to add more PCIE devices it won't be visible at all making it a novelty even for RGB.

from completed build First Build: Happy with it.

No complaints, plenty of space and great for OC.

Beautiful motherboard with all the features I need.

Has a hint of rgb on the bottom left. Odd but aesthetically pleasing.

Look at the pretty lights!

Great aesthetic, really went nice with my white/black contrast build. UEFI is easy to navigate with ample capabilities for those who know more or are more familiar with ASUS UEFI or BIOS, or any UEFI in general. Side LEDs are a nice touch, but i definitely recommend pairing this board with a STRIX model 10 series card for the LED syncing capability.
