This review is from: GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 Configurator
Pros: Overclocks like a champ. Runs right out of the box without any issues. I was worried about previous reviews saying it doesn't run with faster ram, but I had no issues. Onboard sound is great. Love the whole light show, and that I can see the back plate without a flash light, but especially that I can turn it off.
Cons: Not sure exactly which part of the board, but one part tends to run hotter than the rest. The board runs at around 30C with one part hovering around 50C. Is it an issue? Not sure, but outside of my GPU on load, it's the hottest part of my PC.
Not really a con, but some of these boards when I've seen them reviewed came with a wifi adapter. I was hoping to get one as well since my last PC died because it was connected to LAN. It's not really a huge issue or anything, and I'm happy with the board.
Other Thoughts: Double bios seems convenient. CMOS flash button is definitely something I needed for the last 10+ years, just for convenience sake. M.2 Raid 0. I'm not there yet, but I really look forward to it.
Would I buy it again if my house burnt down and took my PC down with it? Probably. I don't think there's a better board out there for the price.
