One of the few motherboards with DDR3 support (Using Avexir Core series red 2133 2.4gb ram)
Nice Asus features such as the "Optimized" overclock and EZ flash for bios upgrades.
PCI-E x4 m.2 slot
EZ mode and advanced mode for the bios
BIOS failsafe feature, plug a DVD or USB in and it will repair the BIOS with the file.
Orange/red LED along the edges that you can choose to "breathe (pulse like effect)," stay on, or stay off. (photo attached, the lights are by the PCI slots)
Only 4 USB 3 ports on the back and only 2 2.0 ports. This is obvious by the pictures, but it still isn't very much.
Only 4 SATA III ports. Once again, this is in the description, but it's still a small amount. Get an adapter is you use more than 4 SATA devices.
No Nvidia SLI support
No USB type C
When making BIOS changes in the EZ mode, if you switch over to the advanced mode you lose those changes.
I updated the BIOS, and then tried making some RAM speed adjustments, which didn't work (forgot to use XMP!). It took a really long time for me to reset the CMOS and get it to boot again, hours even. This was probably user error, but it still was a bit frustrating since I thought it might have died on me.
Make sure you install Windows using the UEFI boot, or it won't work. If you are going to use a drive from another system that isn't UEFI, you may have to format the drive (if it's MBR). Also if you are clean installing Windows 10, and you upgraded from a previous OS, you WILL have to install 7/8, and then do the upgrade to 10. After installing 10, I learned the hard way that my previous license key would not work. So I installed my licensed 8.1, and immediately ran the "media creation tool" to start the upgrade.
I am running the i5-6600k on this board. So far I am happy with it's performance. I upgraded from an AMD Phenom x4, which I got around 4 1/2 years ago. In Shadow of Mordor, I got an average of 50 fps on Ultra settings with my R9 280. Before, I had to run the game on medium/low to get decent FPS.
Using the Asus "optimized" overclock settings, the CPU now runs at around 4.0GHZ and it's nice and stable. And I am using an air cooler, and it idles around 32c.
If I had more money, I would have bought a better board. However, I am happy with my purchase, and I'd say the price is right for what it comes with. If you don't want to buy DDR4 just yet, this is a good option (and one of the only options at the time of my purchase...).
I will update my review as I continue to use the board! Don't forget to update the BIOS as soon as you can. I had the most current BIOS ready on a USB drive after I ordered it so I would be ready.
The USB 3.0 header from the front of my case broke off in the motherboard port. I can't seem to easily get out the part that broke off. Not sure if this is Bitfenix or Asus fault, but it is a bit unfortunate :(
I ended up returning the motherboard because I wasn't happy with the broken internal USB port and I wanted a board that was a little better. To add to this, at this point in time DDR4 has gotten a lot cheaper, and I would recommend saving up <$100 and buying DDR4 with a different motherboard. Only if you're gaming or have a real reason to benefit from it, otherwise you'll be absolutely fine with this. I ended up with an MSI Gaming M5, and I'm happy.
MB seems to work well. It makes a great match for the white NZXT Noctis 450 case. Seems very stable in my system with I7 6700K, R9 390X, DDR4 2x8 3200.
Features that increase the cost of this MB include:
USB 3.1 Including C port
3x3 802.11ac WIFI
I paid a significant premium for this MB primarily because it has AC1300 WIFI, and secondarily because it is a newer product than the Z170 Deluxe version which wasn't rated as highly as I would have liked. I was gambling here to get a more solid performer.
Note: I'm generally very positive on ASUS products. I've owned several AC routers and mainboards from ASUS and love them. For me, the idea here was to make the best possible connection to an area I cannot easily install CAT6.
WIFI does not work as advertised.
When I built the system a few weeks ago there were only beta WIFI drivers available, so I expected to have better results when a normal release became available. Today I tested with the just released WHQL 7.35.317.1 driver for 64 bit Windows 10 with no improvement.
My router is an ASUS RT3200 with Smart connect enabled. With no special effort, all other capable devices including iPads, iPhones, and iMacs connect on the 5Ghz bands utilizing AC and work flawlessly with the RT3200.
In a similar or better location, trying numerous antenna placements, the WIFI on the Z170 deluxe only ever connects on the 2.4GHz band and always reports a 216.5 Mbps connection. I think this is unacceptable for me that that ASUS two products should work better together. This is a high-end router and MB with a well placed external antenna, both from ASUS. My ASUS router provides stronger connects to equally favorably placed apple iMacs, iPads, iPhones, my Xbox One and even the original Fire TV stick.
Almost a great product.
Minus one star for WIFI that should be MUCH better integrated with ASUS own current high end RT3200.
For me, minus another star for paying a huge premium for the one extra feature I wanted most, but doesn't seem to work as advertised.
