This is the updated RGB version of the board and it is a fabulous board for the feature set and price. I would have liked an included shroud instead of having to 3D print one but other than this and my inability to turn off the RGBs when the PC is off, no complaints. Has a fantastic BIOS interface as well.

I wanted a motherboard that wasn't black and red, so I went with this guy. The added aura lighting is a nice bonus but I already turned it off for now.

Took forever to find a motherboard that I liked that would more or less fit my color scheme, once I saw this one it was like love at first site.

As a first-time PC builder, installing all the components and mounting it was hassle free. Everything worked out of the box. Moderate price for a Z170 mobo, but one of the only ones with onboard LEDs if that's your fancy. I think the Aura lighting is a really cool touch that will help make your PC your own, and the software for controlling the LEDs is simple but does its job. Do note that you cannot (as far as I know) configure the LEDs to turn off when the computer shuts down; you can designate a separate lighting configuration for when powered off, but you'll have to decide on LEDs either always on or always off.

I'd rate it 5 stars, but mine has one issue where one of my header LEDs is stuck on blue all the time, so even if I pick a different color, one of the lights in that segment will stay blue. It works out though because I usually have them blue most of the time. Also the Supreme FX lights in the opposite corner from the Aura LEDs are only red, which slightly messes with the cool white/blue futuristic vibe I have going on. Overall still looks cool though, and if you like red then it'll be perfect for you.

well, the RGB doesnt do it for me. the neutral black grey colour is worth more to me compared to the non aura

A nice and stable board, no problems detecting hardware or running XMP profiles on it. The lighting is a nice touch, wish more parts of the board lit up.

The motherboard was cheaper than the Asus z170-A the day i wanted to buy so i choose it, and i love this board! plenty of ports, OC ready, SLi, Usb 3.1 , M.2, everything i wished for! And the ligthning effect is pretty! The aura software for the lightning is a little bit buggy.

Great mobo thus far, the aura lighting syncs with my gpu which is nice. However the lighting on the aft end of the mobo and the led in the center are always red. Good audio. 3d printing support for a m.2 fan and nameplate will come in handy if you want to achieve a true custom look.

Originally thought about getting the X99 buuuuuut... The ASUS Z170 was just too OP. The m.2 slot with nvme support and leds and etc. Mmmmmmmmmmm. delicious.
