The Z370N WIFI has everything you need for an ITX build.
- Four SATA connectors
- Two m.2 slots, although the one in the back doesn't support SATA SSD
- WIFI, although the antenna is kind of cumbersome.
- Good sound quality
- CPU fan header + 2 case fan headers. PWM all of them.
UPDATE: I was let down by this Mobo when I finally attempted OC the i5 8600k. VRM temps went over the roof with just a light OC. Even at stock speeds Prime95 will bring VRM to temps over 100C.
I finally switched to a top down cooler and managed to get VRM temps to reasonable levels at 4800Mhz, but still I think a Z motherboard should do better, so it's only three stars.
No H310 or whatever Coffee Lake budget chipset released yet, so had to go with Z370 even though I don't have a K chip. Was going to get the budget option (ASRock as always), but I wanted USB-C because I have a USB-C to USB-A/HDMI/Ethernet adapter that I really like.
The Gigabyte is priced between ASRock and MSI, but as far as I can tell it has all the features of the more expensive boards. USB-C, all USB 3.0 headers, 3 fan headers, decent looking heatsinks (including a nice M2 bay), wifi, BIOS seems to have all the features I need...
So far so good!
I think, this is my third Gigabyte motherboard. I appreciate their high quality without the excesses of Asus. Simple, full-featured, professional. Overclocking 8600K was fun.
Choose this because it has 2 m.2 slots, easier to install than 2.5" drives especially in this case.
I know that I don't need an overclocking motherboard for this CPU, but I didn't have a choice when I bought it, and I didn't wanna wait for the non overclocking motherboards...
The motherboard featured the most USB 3.0 slots, a USB type-c slot, and most importantly has 2x m.2 bays. The top m.2 bay does not support NVMe SSDs. The bluetooth and Wi-Fi do not work very well if the the antennas are not attached.
A decent improvement over the Z270N model, sadly the audio was apparently downgraded.
This is a great board. It is packed of features, including dual NVMe slots, 2 fan headers and AC wifi. It is a very good board for its size.
Great mother board, the UEFI its easy to navigate the only thing that bothered me was the placement of the HD audio header.
Tiene todo lo que se le puede pedir, 2 M2, wifi, bluetooth, y funciona para hackintosh. La única pega es la falta de más systems fans, por el resto funciona a las mil maravillas.
It's an awesome motherboard. I love the black heat sink and the port selection are great! All USB 3.0 with 1 USB-C. The main awesome thing is the wifi antenna thats freakin magnetic!!
- Magnet wifi antenna
- Port selection
- M.2 below the motherboard, making it possibly hot for certain case (for my case, (pun intended) SG13 is helding out okay)
