    Highlighted Features of this Motherboard


    Intel Z170 Chipset

    The Z170 chipset is designed to support Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. It natively supports up to ten USB 3.0 and six SATA III ports as well as M.2 and PCIe 3.0 technologies for faster data retrieval. This chipset also comes with iGPU functionality so you can enjoy integrated graphics performance.

    Intel LGA 1151 Socket

    This motherboard supports Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium/Celeron processors in the LGA1151 package. These processors come with graphics, memory, and PCI-Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics, dual-channel DDR4 memory, and 16 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes for graphics performance.

    Networking

    ASUS includes a 10G networking card that occupies a PCIe 2.0 x4 slot to deliver 10 Gb/s, 5 Gb/s, 2.5 Gb/s, 1 Gb/s, and 100 Mb/s speeds. The built-in Intel I211-AT Gigabit LAN controller comes with features that enhance the TCP and UDP throughput and reduce the processor's workload so you can have a smoother gaming experience. For wireless options, 802.11ac Wi-Fi is onboard and has up to 1300 Mb/s transfer speeds. Additionally, the Ethernet port is protected with LANGuard, which guards against static electricity and surges.

    5-Way Optimization

    5-Way Optimization sorts out the complex settings with a click for the apps that you are using. It offers instant CPU performance, everyday energy savings, stable digital power, cool and quiet fans, as well as optimized networking and audio settings. The dedicated ASUS base-block generator is designed for 6th-generation Intel processors and ramps up BCLK frequencies up to 400 MHz. This generator works with the TurboV Processing Unit to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control.

    UEFI BIOS

    The UEFI BIOS features a mouse-controlled graphical interface so you can easily overclock and monitor the internal components. It comes with EZ and Advanced modes that offer settings based upon your expertise. Within these settings, you may update the BIOS, control the speed of the fans, and monitor the internal temperature as well as the drive's status.

    RGB LED Illumination

    You can customize the onboard LED lighting with five effects that include Static, Breathing, Strobing, Color cycle, and Music effect. Additionally, the color's shade can indicate the processor's temperature.
