After a combo deal with the processor and rebates, I was able to snag this beauty for just $220. This mobo was built with overclocking and gaming in mind. It offers SLI, M2 Slots, USB 3.1, and everything else under the sun. After this core purchase, the foundation for the source of my inspiration was discovered. Now I'm only looking forward because I don't care who is behind me.

Phenomenal motherboard. Works perfectly, and the RGB is a nice touch but ins't mind shattering.

Great motherboard, does its job and is a fantastic overclocker. This mobo also features 2 RGB headers which I plan on using in the near future. Bought this motherboard for WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities, both of which are very fast and work great. Only complaint is the ROG LED RGB logo does not turn off when the computer is off.

from completed build Something with bit more oomph!

Great motherboard with all the bells and whistles. With SLI config I couldn't shut down the computer without letting everything cool down first.

Anything you may ever want from Z170 chipset and even more.

I've seen this motherboard lineup time and time again in people's builds so I started researching about it. It comes with plenty of features and programs, lots of PWM fan headers, extremely friendly bios etc. Overall, its just a really solid motherboard and I had no troubles overclocking.

Overpriced for some flashy bells and whistles, but I got it mostly for the (buggy but functional) integrated RGB headers. Upgrading the BIOS wiped my settings, which is annoying. Lots of control options though.
