    It looks great, strong PCI-E slots. I don't have a disc drive so I had to install windows from pendrive. I had to download Windows USB Installation Tool to add USB drivers to the bootable pendrive. After installing Windows my pendrive wouldn't work so I had to put all drivers on my laptop's hdd and connect it to my pc. I don't know if it's the MB fault or not, maybe they have some fix to download but I had no internet cable so that was the only way to fix the problem. Also my DDR wouldn't work on XMP but after updating BIOS it works fine. Also fans app you can install is ****. It would turn my fans to 100% for 1-2s and then back to my setting (in idle). You're better off setting the fans in bios. The only programs worth installing are Easy Tune (faster live overclocking, you don't have to reset the pc all the time). After you find out your stable OC I would set it in BIOS anyway and uninstall the program. 2nd program is @BIOS, updating BIOS have never been so easy. Also SATA cables are white-silver-ish. That's a shame. After all, I think it's a good board.

    IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A RED LEB BLACK MOTHERBOARD THIS IS IT!! Very straight forward motherboard to build onto and install nothing too different from the Z170 line. All features are industry standard.

    Good board for the price. Had some small issues with the audio, and I wish there were more usb 3.0 headers. Good overclocking, though, and plenty of external i/o (including thunderbolt) as well as both an m.2 and a u.2 slot!

    Nice motherboard but the default fan settings are 100% RPM making the PC loud until manually changed and the sound codec is a step behind the better Z170 and behind by a lot compared to the Z270 ALC 1220 audio codec. Still a nice look premium feeling motherboard though.
