ASUS ROG STRIX Z270I GAMING, Intel Z270, S 1151, DDR4, SATA3, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), Intel GbE, acWiFi, USB 3.0 A+C, Mini ITX is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but buggy. A well-designed motherboard to fit into such a small factor, although some compromises have been made. There is no USB 2.0 motherboard header for a monitored water-cooler for instance (very unusual for this to be missing). You would have to run a cable from the external USB 2.0 back into the box, which is messy. There IS a USB 3.1 header that could be used, but that would require a couple of converter cables, which again adds clutter to the inside. I like the ten multi-colour LEDS that are programmable to provide a variety of effects. Sadly the windows software is so buggy you can rarely get this to work reliably. Probably the biggest issue is the auto-overclocking. It's very buggy and frankly if left to it's own devices commonly locks up the PC. Many people have to choke down their RAM speed to 2.333ghz to even get their PC to boot. This motherboard was first released two years ago, and still has all these problems despite BIOS upgrades. ASUS support has been useless and not even got back to me. Overall, this could have been so much more, but the bugs make it no better than average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great motherboard for its size I was a little worried about going to m-itx for a gaming pc but very very pleased. audio is really good on the board, 2 x m.2 slots are great. only problem is it only has 3 fan connectors but soon sorted that by getting a fan hub I went for the nzxt grid so overall very happy with this board and my build, running a 1080ti so 4k all the way !!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice RGB light show but let down by cold boot failures. Despite BIOS updates and following compatibility list faithfully this board does not boot from a cold start. By cold boot I mean mains off at the wall. Requires reset button to be pushed to bring to life. Fine if you always just put to sleep but not for those who like to switch mains off when not in use. Apart from that the board works fine. Well documented problem on Asus ROG forum. Have built two systems in last couple of months using this board and the cold boot problem has only get worse with each Bios revision. Just not good enough Asus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good motherboard A little bit limited on features, but its a powerhorse for overclocking. The bios menu isnt great. Two M.2 slots will be useful for the future im sure. 4 SATA ports is a bit low.
