    Sadly in the 1151 series motherboards, there aren't any black and blue ones which suit my taste. So i opted for this however I now dislike this as it lacks usb ports at the back now that type c is the new thing. 4 usb ports aint very handy

    fantastic motherboard for the price and a nice matte black finish. Has a great layout and all the features you expect. Also has a great and easy to understand bios, i just wish it supported sata m.2 and had built in wifi.

    Nothing flashy here, I just wanted something without any red LEDs or accents - which is a lot harder to find than one would think. It helps the blue features stand out really nicely, and there is plenty of space for a second card. The bios looks nice - I will update this section when I have a stable OC and have had more time to poke around it.

    This is an amazing budget Z170 board. It lacks the bells and gimmicks like gaming LAN and bundled software that I find useless, but it overclocks RAM and CPU like a champ. Read the reviews on this if you don't believe me. This thing is a steal especially if you catch it on sale. If you need a ton of USB ports I would avoid, other than that save some dough and put it towards other parts.

    looks nice and had a clean & easy to use bios that made overclocking my CPU and setting my RAM speed very easy

    Really sturdy and simple MOBO. Perfect for an all black build!

    Good looking board. I didn't need something flashy looking with a bunch of LEDs, and this matte black finish looks amazing. Unfortunately, I did have to RMA my brand new board. The refurbished one does its job so far.

    only 4 usb ports on the rear panel (+1 usb type-c); only 4 sata cables included

    Real good mobo. lots of good extras like sata cables and an included SLI bridge. The BIOS has a small learning curve but OC Genie makes one-click overclocking simple.

    Not the greatest mobo, could use some more usb headers, that's probably my biggest issue though.
