GIGABYTE Z270X Ultra Gaming LGA1151 Motherboard

GIGABYTE Z270X Ultra Gaming LGA1151 Intel 2-Way SLI ATX DDR4 Motherboard
March 15, 2017

A few weeks ago I wrote about the Kaby Lake 7th Gen Intel Core Desktop Processor i7-7700K. If you are going to get the latest and greatest processor, then you’ll also want a great motherboard. Today, I’m going to give you just such an option. As usual, there are Amazon links included for which I receive a piddly little commission. No, I haven’t gotten a free motherboard for writing this.

Our processor uses the LGA-1151 socket, so we need to choose a mother board with that same socket. That’s exactly what you’ll find on the Gigabyte Z270X Ultra Gaming LGA1151 Motherboard. Don’t let the “gaming” in the name scare you if you don’t play games. If it is great for games, it is also great for high-end graphics work.

Want to add a lot of memory? It supports up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM at 3,866 MT/s. In short, it is really fast and supports a lot of it. It has 5 USB 3.1 ports on the back, 2 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.1 Type-C. Need to add drives, there are 6 SATA 6 GB/s connection and 2 SATA Express connectors. You also have an M.2 PCIe x4 connector and a U.2 PCIe x4 connector. No matter the type of drive, there is a very fast way to connect it.

All of this power in a new motherboard and the price doesn’t break the bank. For those looking for a motherboard to pair with the latest Intel chip, this is a darned good one.
