AORUS Z370 GAMING Motherboard
There’s a vast range of impressive Z370 motherboards hitting the market right now. Of course, since the new Intel 8th Generation processors require a revised pin layout to accommodate the new core count, that’s to be expected. It does suck that those on Z270 have to change motherboards, especially when the feature-set is pretty much unchanged. However, since we saw the performance of the new CPUs, all is forgiven… or at least, more easily brushed aside.
With the impressive CPU performance in mind, I’m eager to see what the Gaming K3 has to offer against some pretty fierce competition. Equipped with full RGB lighting and a kick-ass stock design, it’s obviously tailored to the gaming crown. However, with Dual M.2, ALC1220 Audio, Intel Gaming LAN, USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A/C, Smart Fan 5, Anti-Sulfur Resistors, and more, it’s packing plenty of punch for any system build.
