Hello again everyone and welcome to another round of new hardware!! With the official release of the Skylake CPUs and the new Z170 chipset we will be working to get them all added to the site as quickly and accurate as possible. If you notice a motherboard that is missing, please link us to the manufacturer product page for the part so that we can put it on the site right away.

Thanks and good luck purchasing one!

EDIT: Working on a fix for the 1151 compatibility. Please stand by.

EDIT2: Everything should be fixed now. If you are still seeing compatibility issues please let me know.

EDIT3: H170 and B150 will be coming soon. I've been busy working on an awesome new build video that you are all going to love

The Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 board is apparently due this week in Australia (mini-ITX board). Can this be added? http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5529#ov

Yep, and here's the listing on NCIX US: http://www.ncixus.com/products/?sku=113391

ETA on PCCaseGear is 9/9; I hope it'll be available in the US around then as well.

Hi

Lots of new Motherboards released with the release of the new processors and chipsets in the last day or so:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/list.aspx?s=42&jid=3&p=2&v=37 http://www.msi.com/product/mb/#?chipset=Intel H170&chipset_no=1253 http://www.msi.com/product/mb/#?chipset=Intel B150&chipset_no=1254

Can see a lot of these on a few online stores now. Can't see any Asus models on their website yet but they have announced them...

Can't do it without pics of the back of the board to verify m.2 length

Just a quick thing I noticed about the Skylake CPUs, despite saying their socket is LGA1151 on the part page they act as if they are incompatible with all LGA1151 socketed mobos (such as the Asus Z170-A). CPU coolers also don't show compatibility with the LGA1151 socket despite that all LGA1150 coolers should be compatible with LGA1151, but this is more understandable.

I found an issue that I tried specifying the cheapest z170 board from asus, but the compatibility checker was determined to tell me that it used ddr3 ram. Did a quick Google, and I can confirm all current z170 boards use ddr4 presently. So may wish to fix this?

  • 52 months ago

Did you have DDR3 in the build?

I know Asus has two DDR3 Z170 boards:
Z170-P D3: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-z170pd3
Z170M-E D3: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-z170med3

There are 2-3 boards that currently use DDR3 instead of DDR4. Can you link me the motherboard you are talking about on our site?

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

On the motherboards list, can we have an option to select the RAM type supported by the board? I know a lot of people looking for DDR3 compatible boards, and so far I only know of the Z170-P D3 option for ATX builds, which is somewhat lacking.

  • 52 months ago

We can look into adding that.

Asus Z170-P D3

Asus Z170M-E D3

Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3 DDR3

All use DDR3

Ooh nice, the product page for this board is finally up. Adding now...

EDIT: Actually, I'm going to wait til a bit closer to release and some more pictures/reviews are available. There is conflicting information about the m.2 slots available and no pictures of the back of the pcb.

  • 52 months ago

Hello. The spec on official website mentions m.2 part on backside with PCIe v3x4.

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes, but it doesn't show the actual sizes supported.

  • 51 months ago
  • 2 points

M.2 support list is available here: http://download.gigabyte.asia/FileList/Document/mb_m.2_support_100series.pdf.pdf.

Lists m.2 drives with B and M keys in 2242 / 2260 / 2280 sizes. PCIe v2/v3 connection in x2 and x4 bus configurations as well as SATA3.

Hope that helps! :-)

  • 51 months ago

That looks to be a generic 100 series support list. The specs on the motherboard suggest it is a different type of m.2 which is why I am waiting until pics of the back of the board are available.

Just to note, as I just saw it in this thread: https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/105333-gigabyte-ga-z170xp-sli-is-it-good

The Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI is about an inch shorter than the ATX specification, so those right 3 ATX mounting holes are not there. Instead, it has a single center-right hole just to the lower right of the ram slots, as shown in the images listed. Don't know exactly what that hole corresponds to, as it doesn't seem to be a specified hole on the ATX mounting diagram.

Edit: If the staff could perhaps add a mention of this uniqueness to the part when it is added, akin to those "One SATA port will be disabled..." notices in the part list, or something like that. Honestly, this surprises me, so any word would be helpful.

  • 51 months ago

This is fairly common among ATX boards and not unique to Z170. You usually see it with budget boards. Nothing special or noteworthy really and nothing that affects compatibility.

It is? Huh. Interesting to know. Thanks!

Yep, look through the pictures on the build we did with an H81 board. You can see on about the 3rd pic down that there is a ton of space between the board and the cable management holes and the standoffs are clearly visible.

Huh... I wonder why they do that and/or why they all don't do that. Neat!

Also, loved that the motherboard lights up green! :)

I'd wager cost savings. Lower cost boards aren't as featured packed. If they can chop off an inch or two of pcb across thousands of units thats a lot of saved cash.

all asrock, asus, and evga should be in the system. currently working on a backlog of giga and msi. FWIW the gigas don't actually end in black (at least not the part number) and it looks like newegg has a funny socket set for those:

CPU Socket Type: Black+15u Gold Plated
