Beautiful motherboard, very similar to the Z270E from strix but without SLI, wifi and overclocking while costing significantly less
Fantastic board with enough space between components so assembly is easy. Supports USB 3.0 on board and has two M.2 slots.
I am indifferent towards RGB lighting in general but I like the muted nature of the lights on this board. They are only a thin strip on the back near the RAM.
The PCIe slots also offer lots of configuration options which was great because I wanted the WiFi card far away from the graphics card so they had higher heat isolation.
Great layout and availability of fan headers also makes it easy to install a lot of different fans and get the RPM information for all of them.
The BIOS was very easy to use and understand and comes with EZ mode that acts more like a dashboard if you are looking for one quick bit of information.
Supreme FX audio with the new 1220a chipset was central to my choice for this board. Mostly I wanted a high(ish) non K board. This or the B250. I believe B250 has 12 PCIE lanes and this has 20 lanes. Both have very similar specs with cost difference of about 25 to 40 dollars between them. The H270 boards are fairly new but feel well established. Bios( I know not bios) updates were without drama with a pretty clean install and boot order setup.
Great MB. I am not overclocking but I still wanted all that the Z Series MB had to offer. And this is it. I am not audio perv, but the sound quality of music (and gaming) from this board is incredible. I love the ROG line and will definitely buy Strix in the future. Not to mention the RGB LED's. Thumbs up Asus!!!
There was quite a few different Z270 boards I was interested but this is the board that really had my attention. It has a decent amount of internal ports, looks great and is a reasonable price. The RGB lighting is a nice touch and I like how you can add items to it if you have a 3D printer.
Not really expensive for a lot of possibility, it's not the best choice but still a good one ( SLI, 2x M2 SSD etc...)
