Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming Motherboard Review

Aorus Z370 Ultra Gaming

It’s Z370 launch day and that means we’re back with yet another feature packed motherboard! This one is from Aorus, the flagship gaming moniker from Gigabyte. The Ultra Gaming is, as you might have guessed, a gaming-focused motherboard. It features support for multiple graphics cards, high-performance memory, overclocking of the CPU, and blazing fast storage solutions. So let’s dive in and take a closer look at what it has to offer.


With 8th gen Intel Core Processor support, the new somewhat new Z370 platform is a small upgrade on the Z270 platform. Pretty much everything is what you will be familiar with, with the addition of a revised socket that allows the use of the new CPUs and their increased core counts, such as the 6-core i5-8400 and i7-8700K we reviewed.

What’s in the Box?

There’s really not a lot with this motherboard, and I guess there doesn’t need to be. You’ll get the usual documentiation, a driver disc, a black backplate, and a few basic cables. That does cover all the basics, but there’s no stickers and other fun stuff we often see (obviously, not a big deal).
