Great entry-level Z170 board, maybe not as feature rich as some of my previous boards but gets the job done. My only criticism is it has no screw holes for far right mounting so you have to hold the board up with a well placed finger when plugging in RAM/24 pin ATX. Would have been 5 stars for the sake of 10mm
