Most Favorable Review

Perfect! Everything seems to be working just fine!

ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 LGA 1151 Intel Z270 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Motherboards - Intel
ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 LGA 1151 Intel Z270 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Motherboards - Intel

Pros: Works great, even optical audio works unlike other manufacturers making false claims! This board is super! S/N is 6CM0XB176417

Cons: Wish there were more detailed specs regarding the rgb led port (ie. max safe wattage).

Overall Review: This was my first ASRock purchase and I highly recommend them now.

Optical audio does NOT work right, see other reviews

GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Ultra Gaming (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Ultra Gaming (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Works fine if you don't use optical audio

Cons: Optical audio constantly cuts in and out (this has been going on at least since Sept 2016 so Gigabyte is well aware of the issue yet has not fixed the problem (I really wish I would have read this before purchasing).

Overall Review: I need to now decide if I will return this motherboard since I am still within the 30 day window... I have a ticket open with Gigabyte so I will see what they have to say...
