Z270M-ITX/ac Intel Z270 (Socket 1151) DDR4 Mini ITX MotherboardThe ASRock Z270M-ITX/ac is a Mini-ITX motherboard utilising Intel's Z270 chipset for Intel processors from the 6th ("Skylake") and 7th ("Kaby Lake") generations on socket LGA 1151. The chipsets from the 200 series, known as "Union Point", come with up to 24 PCIe Express 3.0 lanes and bring more overall HSIO lanes (High Speed I/O) as well, thereby enabling more internal connections (such as SATA or PCIe slots) to be used simultaneously. As a Z270 motherboard, the ASRock Z270M-ITX/ac enables overclocking of K-series CPUs, which offer completely unlocked multipliers.
The Features of the ASRock Z270M-ITX/ac - An Overview:
- Compact Motherboard with a PCIe (3.0) x16 Slot
- 8× USB 3.0 (6× Type A / 2× Internal)
- 4× USB 2.0 (2× Type A / 2× Internal)
- 1× M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) & 6× SATA 6G
- Supports up to 32 GB DDR4-RAM at 3.733 MHz
- Includes ac-WiFi Module and Antennae
- CPU Overclocking via Multiplier & Baseclock
The ASRock Z270M-ITX/ac in DetailThe ASRock Z270M-ITX/ac is a very well-featured mini-ITX motherboard with Intel's Z270 chipset offering compatibility with Intel's processors from the 6000 and 7000 series. This black and compact board provides one PCIe-x16-Slot, that is connected with a full 16 lanes to the chipset.
The motherboard provides DDR4 RAM compatibility over two DIMM slots for DDR4 RAM compatibility in ultra-fast dual-channel mode. The memory banks take up to 32 GB RAM and, depending on the processor installed, supports memory clocks of either 2.133 MHz (with Skylake CPUs) or 2.400 MHz (with Kaby Lake CPUs), while overclocking allows memory modules of up to 3.733 MHz to be used.
In order to connect the very fastest data storage devices, the board comes with a M.2 slot extreme NVMe M.2 SSDs, a SATA Express port as well as six SATA 6G ports for 3,5" or 2,5" hard drives and SSDs (including RAID support). The M.2 port is connected to the chipset via four PCIe lanes in the 3.0 standard and enables, when combined with the NVMe protocol, a data transfer rate of almost 4 GB/s. This means a M.2 PCIe SSD is up to eight times faster than a SATA 6G SSD!
The motherboard provides options for input devices and other peripherals on the I/O panel with a total of six USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports. Besides both RJ45 LAN ports the board is equipped with a WiFi module that even supports the fast ac-standard. If no graphics card is available then, thanks to the integrated GPU on the Skylake or Kaby Lake CPU, monitors can be directly connected to the rear of the motherboard. Two HDMI ports and a DVI port are provided for this purpose.
Internally the motherboard offers, among other functions, a TPM- and Chassis Intrusion header, as well as a 4-pin CPU FAN connector, a 4-pin header for PWM fans or pump and a front panel audio connector. The USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 headers allow two further internal connections using the USB standard.
