BIOSTAR Hi-Fi H170Z3 Motherboard

The new BIOSTAR Hi-Fi H170Z3 is perhaps the most versatile motherboard on the market right now, at least as far as memory compatibility is concerned. That’s because this is the very first motherboard to offer support for both DDR3 and DDR4 memory, which means that it is a perfect choice for those of you who want to switch over to Intel’s new Skylake processors without having to invest in DDR4. The motherboard is based on Intel’s H170 chipset, which supports socket 1151 Intel Core processors and has the iGPU function enabled in order to allow users to take advantage of integrated graphics.

Updating and restoring the BIOS on the Hi-Fi H170Z3 is a walk in the park thanks to user-friendly tools such as BIOS Flasher and BIOS Online Update. BIO-Remote2 Technology is also supported, and it allows users to control their PCs using Apple or Android mobile devices. Other highlights include BIOSTAR’s Smart Speed LAN and eXtreme Durable Capacitors that ensure much-needed stability and reliability. As its name suggests, this motherboard incorporates Pure Hi-Fi technology that makes use of audio components with an independent power delivery design. This design reduces electronic noise significantly in order to ensure outstanding sound quality. Last but not least, it’s worth mentioning that the Hi-Fi H170Z3 flaunts support for 4K monitors and includes USB 3.0 ports, PCIe M.2 (32Gb/s) and SATA Express (16Gb/s).
