    from completed build HOT ROD

    I bought this board based on a review from TechOfTomorrow and I am very happy with my purchase. The LEDs are nice and the software needed to control them is easy to use. Handles overclocking well and is a nice board overall. Great price but no SLI. Has an m.2 slot that can do NVME drives. Very feature rich board for a budget board.

    I purchased this not knowing what to expect given it's price point and lack of reviews but I am thoroughly impressed with it as a budget Z170 board. The board itself is a simple black/grey color scheme which fits in aesthetically with most cases and parts.

    One really unique feature is the level of LED customization that has blown me away. The utility software packaged with the board is easy to use and needs to be left running minimized in the system tray to turn the LEDs on. They can be set to any RGB color with the LED locations being on the motherboard heatsinks and along the outside edge of the PCI expansion slots.

    The board also comes with a flexible LED light strip and a specialized LED header near the CPU fan headers which can also be controlled by the software.

    The BIOS was easy to use and picked up everything right out of the box with no issues, the only setting that took a moment to find was adjusting the boot order to put my SSD ahead of the HDD. Driver CD did what it was supposed to and I was up and running with Windows 7 in under 20 minutes from CD install. The utilities software is worth the install too not just for the LED control but also for the Hardware Monitor.

    This is a great board for those who are looking to have something that matches their components if following an aesthetic theme. On top of that I had no issues with installs and the BIOS out of the box worked as expected.

    from completed build My White Dream!

    Was referred by family to this, I was looking at Asus Z170 series. The 5050 LED kinda pulled me in, needed disk driver to load correct software and after that i got the LED's to work. Has plenty of ports for me. No quality issues. I bought for around $100. The utility software has to be loaded every time i boot up or else my LED's wont turn on, also in the LED DJ has an "Eco and Sport" button which default seems to dumb my CPU speeds down until I switch over to "sport" mode.(Eco= CPU VCore: 0.726 Core speed: 900MHz, Sport= CPU VCore: 1.298 Core Speed: 4000MHz) In Eco mode CPU temps stay at 23C and soon as I click sport, jumps up to 34C at idle. With that said i use sport in games and switch back when browsing. The board also has 2 BIOS with a switch for emergencies, I believe. Haven't had to use it but I think its for incase you mess one up, or to have it setup differently. In all its a great board.

    Good overclocking but RGB lacks a lot!

    from completed build First Build!

    The only reason I went ahead and picked it up was because 1) I wanted a ATX board instead of the MATX I had and 2) The great deal on it ( 50% off) when I ordered it.

    As for the board itself, the 5050 LED strip it comes with is nice, but has a slighty different color then the LEDs on the board itself. The BIOS looks decent, and the Vivid LED DJ makes it easy to change colors. However, the " Shine & Music " setting ( syncs the music playing on your PC and the lights change colors to the beat ) didn't work for me.
