Awesome. Was looking for a relatively cheap motherboard, and this one has everything I need and nothing that I don't.
Great value. This motherboard has everything I need plus good overclocking capability and doesn't have anything I don't need. The build quality is very good and comes with reinforced graphics card slots which does a very good job of holding the massive FTW3 in place without any noticeable sag. It also has modest RGB lighting out of the box and an RGB header which is nice.
It's been able to provide very good consistent voltage to the Coffee Lake with modest LLC to help achieve a stable 5GHz.
The only slightly annoying things were:
The red dual BIOS LED that can't be disabled.
The M.2 (Key E) slot was almost impossible to find and very tricky to use. There was no mention of it anywhere in the manual except that the motherboard has it. After half an hour of going inch by inch with a flashlight I found it behind the IO shroud.
Screwing in a wireless module with that little space and not even being able to hold the screwdriver straight due to the shroud was very tricky. I definitely recommend installing that before installing the mobo inside the chassis.
Amazing price for all the features I needed. It has 2 m2 slots which is handy
What can I say about this motherboard? Best price/feature for sure. It has everything I need and it has a simple to understand BIOS. I can even regulate my 3 pin fans using the DC mode.
Really good motherboard at a good price. It has everything I need!
Sweet motherboard, definitely a 'budget-y' board for 8th Gen Intel. RGB LED's look great and are bright enough and has a nice looking BIOS and really good IO ports (No rear USB 2.0 at all!)
Awesome board. Great aesthetics, bright RGBs, good audio. A little pricey for not offering onboard WiFi but again this was shortly after Coffee Lake launch and 370 boards had less options to choose from.
I used black nail polish to cover the ridiculously bright red LED. Other than that all good
I chose this motherboard because it's a very cheap Z370 motherboard and it has all the features I need. Also, it has 12 power phases. However, I have some complaints with this motherboard:
The red dual BIOS LED cannot be disabled. It emits a very strong red light and it's annoying when playing or watching movies with the lights turned off. I'm not sure if there's a workaround for this.
It only comes with one RGB header, which is positioned at the bottom. It would be great if they were to add another one at the top.
(July 25, 2018 update: As of this writing, the red dual BIOS LED has been turned off after updating to the latest firmware. Thanks, AsRock!)
It's a sharp-looking, high-performance board. My only complaint is the lack of bluetooth/wifi, but I knew what I was getting myself into when I bought it.
I really like the gunmetal theme that Z370 boards seem to have adopted -- in fact, it was the color that inspired the rest of this build!
Also, the reviews aren't lying: this board really does have some primo on-board audio. By no means am I an audiophile, but it undeniably produces better sound than any platform I've used in the past.
