Asus Z170M-PLUS, Intel Z170, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), 2-Way CrossFire, Intel LAN, USB C (5Gbps), Micro ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact with loads of features at a good price, only lacks dedicated Wifi and Bluetooth Perfect for a compact gaming build or media centre although it is overkill for a media centre. The BIOS is packed with features and overclocking tools. The only thing it could improve upon; it lacks is onboard wifi and Bluetooth, a mini-PCI Express port would have been nice if you wanted to get your own. The DIMM slots are a bit close to the CPU socket so be cautious on HSF choice.

Should the audio seperation track be illuminated?

In the product description on your page, it is stated: "Beautiful LED-illuminated trace paths brighten your build and highlight noise-isolated, precision-shielded, interference-eliminated onboard audio like you've never before experienced!" I have recently built a different system incorporating an Asus B150M-K D3 board which features a very similar audio section to my Z170M-PLUS and wondered why my motherboard does not light up. I have checked over all settings in the BIOS and there is not an option to control illumination. Is my particular unit defective or is the description inaccurate?
Asked by: CurtisR
Hello, Yes this should light up, the settings should be in the miscellaneous part of the advanced BIOS Settings. Thanks,

Do all the memory slots have to be populated to take advantage of overclocking the memory or can i do this using only 2x8gb 3000Mhz Vengeance chips.

Asked by: Nevi
No, you do not have to populate all the slots. The memory as a whole is overlocked when you decide to overclock the module(s). However it is recommended to either have two modules or four, as the dual channel functionality makes pairs of RAM modules run overall faster. So if you are going to overclock you might as well buy two modules such as the ones you have selected, personally, I would throw in an extra 7£ and get the Corsair 3200MHz or better modules as the prices are quite close to each other now. The linked RAM is only a little more expensive which is currently what I have in my rig. Bear in mind the Skylate CPUs actually perform better with higher frequency modules unlike the previous generations.
