* Amazingly well executed onboard audio. The onboard audio is not only surprisingly clear but has given my desktop Amp and DAC a run for their money which is no small feat considering that my amp alone costs more than this motherboard. I have always been skeptical of onboard audio as it is usually plagued with hiss's hum's and does not play well with high impedance headphones
* Holds both of my nvidia 970's tightly. Many GPU's are heavy and they will put a fair amount of stress on your PCI ports. My GPU's sagged when they were on my previous motherboard and it makes me smile to see them seated straight and it just looks nicer.
* Plays well with Windows 7. There have been a fair number users saying that 1151 motherboards don't like Windows 7 and I was worried that I was going to have to switch to Windows 10( I do plan to switch eventually ). No problems at all.
* I am mostly indifferent when it comes to pc lighting and component aesthetics in general but I do like the rear panel lighting as you can pick a separate color for the labels as you do for the panel ( also it looks pretty ). This motherboard has a great many customizable lights that can be set to a great many different colors.
* The software. I usually avoid motherboard control software since they often have user interfaces that feel like bloatware. That is not the case this time around. I also like that the various control programs are modular so that you only have to install them on a per need basis as opposed to a suite style setup. There's even one that lets you set up your motherboard to ignore specific usb class types ( memory sticks, cameras, microphones, etc )
* The only complaint I have so far is that that debug codes are not all listed in the manual and I have yet to find a way to look up unlisted codes outside of googling them. ( If you are unaware there is a two digit digital readout on the top right of the motherboard that displays an alphanumeric code to tell you what the motherboard is doing at any given time )
I will update this if I run into to any problems or find more features I want to rave about.
As far as DDR4, it only works out of the box with DDR4 2133. You can get by with running a single higher speed stick just to get it to boot Once is BIOS, you'll need to manually configure the memory profile to match your RAM. I couldn't verify this because of the processor issue.
I should have done more research before buying this, so it's on me. TBH, I thought I was buying a z270 board, I wasn't paying enough attention. As of this review, Amazon groups this one Z170 in with the Gigabyte Z270s. Not sure why.
System Specs - GSkill Ripjaws 3200 DDR4, Intel i7-7700K
When I went to build my i7 skylake system in November though, I just was disappointed in everything Asus had to offer at the time. I went with the Gigabyte motherboard after hours and hours of research, and have been thoroughly happy with it.
The audio DESTROYS ROG Z97, as well as the Asus Z97-a motherboards I have used.
The addition of the Killer NIC is a nice touch, but I have had the best luck with the Intel NIC.
I never thought I would appreciate the light up IO panel as much as I do. Super handy.
All the ports seem to be thoughtfully located, at least for my purposes.
Zero issues with my 4 SSDs in raid0. Speeds seem what they should be.
The included appcenter stuff is pretty gimicky in my opinion, but that's part for the course with any brand in my experience.
All in all, highly recommend. Thunderbolt 3 is awesome.

Tiene muchas lineas PCI e, por lo que no sera un problema agregarle todos los componentes que quieras
en mi caso tenia una tarjeta grafica de 3 slots, una tarjeta de wifi, una tarjeta de sonido , y una tira de led que ocupaba un slot.
y todo me cupo excelentemente,
Lo que tienes que tomar en cuenta es que algunas lineas se comparten, revisa el manual para que no te quedes sin lugar donde colocar tus discos duros,
Los materiales asi como el empaque son de muy buena calidad,
el procesador nunca presento problema de sobrecalentamiento.
Ampliamente la recomendaria a cualquiera que este buscando una buena mobo para sacarle jugo a su procesador K
ya que trae muchas configuraciones para poder controlar el OC.-
If you are someone who likes to install your motherboard in your case after installing your heat sinks, be aware there is extremely little clearence so with that plastic cover. Also it is extremely easy to misalign the motherboard plate cable with the case leading to pinched wires to pay attention to that prior to installing it.
But these are things I would expect someone who is prepared to build their own pc to be expecting.
I recommend you install any m.2 cards near the cpu first prior to applying the heatsink or if you just won't be able to handle those fine screws with the amount of clearance your heatsink would allow. otherwise you run the risk of having to take out the heatsink and reapply to get to the slot.
I had to deal with that becase my noctua fan is huge and left me no clearance.
Noctua heatsink double fan purchasers be warned. Forget the model number.
Lets get some important things outta the way first:
-You need to update the bios if you want to use a Kaby Lake processor. I have Skylake so I didn't bother to update the Bios as it was already f8- I try not fix things that aren't broken
-As with all z170 boards, it supports DDR4 2133 Ram out of box. You may encounter difficulties if you shoot for something higher on your initial boot, you'll need to build a memory profile for higher Ram speeds
- The Sound is fine, I haven't had any audio enigmas yet.
This motherboard is awesome, it has almost as many features as its more expensive colleagues and offers many features for those who want to overclock from the bios- though I am not one who cares for overclocking. I found the bios easy to navigate and it is possible to update the bios from within the menu. The physical board has all the input ports you could want and I was able to install all my components with room to spare; and did I mention that the PCI ports are rock solid and can handle huge Graphics cards with no sag?
The sound is also rockin' as well, I bought some surround sound headphones and haven't encountered anything but a great audio experience.
I think the only thing I didn't like about this board is that bloody white shroud: it eats up an unnecessary amount of space. Took a solid effort to line the board up with the I/O shield. You can remove the shroud if you wish, it's as easy as removing 3 screws from the bottom.
All in all- a great board. This should meet my needs for sometime
