Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) Z170 Intel Motherboard
This award winning ATX board from Gigabyte uses the Z170 chipset and offers multi-GPU support with three PCI Express x16 slots and three PCI Express x1 slots for add-on card support. It’s equipped with four DIIM slots allowing sixty-four gigabytes of DDR4 ram at speeds of thirty-eight hundred sixty-six megahertz (MHz).
Drive support includes two M.2 ports for the fastest SSD storage devices in addition to six SATAIII ports and three SATA Express connectors. Audio is provided by a Creative Sound Core 3D chipset giving it 5.1 channel sound which is excellent but not as good as some of the boards on my list. Complemented by a black, white, and red color scheme, this is an outstanding Z170 offering at a very good price.
