    Performance

    That brings us to performance where the Z170A Pro Gaming manages to outperform the fastest board we have tested (so far) from the competition. Looking back it also regularly edges ahead of the ASUS Z170-A board we previously reviewed. As far as overclocking goes, the board offered complete stability with our i7-6700k at 5.0GHz on liquid cooling. more

    Performance

    That brings us to performance where the Z170-A can often compete with a high end X99 board. It looses out in some obvious areas (CPU based performance, memory bandwidth) but elsewhere in areas such as PCIe speed, USB speed and the like the experience is the same. The board tends to outperform Z97 (while having more advanced features too) and easily passes the AMD equivalent. In comparisons with another Z170 based product, and a more expensive one at that, the Z170-A offered near identical results with our CPU topping out at 5.0Ghz (liquid cooled) on this board when manually overclocking. more
