Product information: Prime Z270-A Intel Z270 (Socket 1151) DDR4 ATX Motherboard

Well-Equipped Z270 Motherboard (ATX), with 3× PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16/x8/x4), 2× USB 3.1 (1x Type A & 1x Type C), 2× M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) & 6x SATA 6G, 6× USB 3.0 & 6× USB 2.0, 1× RGB-LED Header & ASUS Aura RGB LEDs The ASUS PRIME Z270-A is an ATX 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 ASUS PRIME Z270-A enables overclocking of K-series CPUs, which offer completely unlocked multipliers.

The Features of the ASUS PRIME Z270-A - An Overview:

  • 3× PCIe (3.0) x16 (16/8/4) & 4× PCIe (3.0) x1
  • 2× USB 3.1 (Type A & Type C) / 6× USB 3.0
  • 2× M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) / 6× SATA 6G
  • Supports up to 64 GB DDR4-RAM at 3.866 MHz
  • ASUS AURA RGB-LED Lighting
  • Expandable via RGB-LED Header (4-Pin)
  • CPU Overclocking via multiplier & baseclock

The ASUS PRIME Z270-A in Detail

The ASUS PRIME Z270-A is a very well-equipped ATX motherboard with Intel's Z270 chipset offering compatibility with Intel's processors from the 6000 and 7000 series. This black-themed board comes with three PCIe x16 slots, of which one is connected to the chipset via 16 full lanes, while the other two PCIe x16 slots are connected electrically via 4 or 8 data links respectively. For I/O and expansion card support, the board provides three PCIe x1 slots and furthermore comes with support for NVIDIA's SLI and AMD's CrossFireX technology.

The motherboard provides DDR4 RAM compatibility over 4 DIMM slots in ultra-fast dual-channel mode. The memory banks take up to 64 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), and overclocking also allows memory modules rated at speeds of up to 3.866 MHz.

In order to connect the very fastest data storage devices, the board comes with two M.2 slots for extreme NVMe M.2 SSDs, as well as six SATA 6G ports for 3,5" or 2,5" hard drives and SSDs (including RAID support). The M.2 ports are connected via four PCIe lanes on the 3.0 standard to the chipset and, in combination with the NVMe protocol, enable a data transfer rate of almost 4 GB/s. This allows M.2 PCIe SSDs to function up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs! One of the particularly unique features of the ASUS PRIME Z270-A is its compatibility with the ASUS Aura RGB-LED lighting system as well as offering a header for RGB-LED lighting strips.

The I/O panel of this motherboard offers connectivity to the new USB specification, USB Type C, a port with a new slim profile and the ability to be plugged in either way. Apart from the Type C port the motherboard also offers backwards compatibility with USB 3.1 Type A. USB 3.1 ports are rated for a maximum achievable throughput of 10 Gbit/s, twice as fast as traditional USB 3.0 ports! As far as input devices and other gaming peripherals are concerned, the I/O panel also offers six USB 3.0 ports.

If no graphics card is available, the integrated GPU on the Skylake or Kaby Lake CPU allows for monitors to be connected directly to the rear of the motherboard - and both HDMI and DisplayPort connectors are available for improved connectivity. Internally the motherboard offers - among other functions – buttons to clear CMOS-, a TMP- and COM port header, four 4 pin headers for PWM fans, a 4 pin AiO header, a 5 pin Thunderbolt header as well as XMP support and an array of overclocking features.
