from completed build I See What Hue Did There...
This motherboard does everything I need it to, and it was a good price. My only wish is to have just one more USB 2.0 header. The PCB is a little flimsy, but once you get the motherboard installed it doesn't matter. The BIOS/UEFI is beautiful and easy to use. I'm a new fan of Asus.

The best bang for the buck Z170 Mobo in the market imo. And it looks great!..... apart from the brown pcb.

Amazing board. So many perks that come along with this MB such as you don't need to overclock your items manually, and a ton of fan headers. Also looks very sleek.

Best Z170 motherboard for under $200. Functions great, BIOS is easy, and it looks excellent as well. Durable.
To improve, I wish the white IO shield was user-removable. It looks very nice, but could cause issues with case radiators.

This is a great looking and affordable Z170 motherboard that has all the features I need.
That said, it comes with a VERY cheap IO shield, which made mounting the motherboard in the case extremely frustrating. On reading other reviews of this motherboard, I know I'm not the only one who struggled with this.
The board is black, but the lines on it are brown. This is not shown in the marketing images. In practice, the color of the board depends on viewing angle and the amount of incident light. When it's in the case, the board appears black, but when working on it one could easily see that it was actually brown.
