Asus Z170-K, Intel Z170, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), 2-Way CrossFire, Realtek Gigabit LAN, USB 3.1 A+C, ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value and performance this is the second one of these I bought as I was very happy with the first
Date published: 2016-12-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality motherboard This is the second ASUS board I've used and both are very good. I have an M2 SSD installed alongside an i3-6100 and 16GB of ram. Needless to say it runs extremely well, is energy efficient and quiet. Only thing I would say is that the I/O panel is a bit lacking on connectivity, but otherwise very good.
