    TUF Z270 MARK 1

    Gold

    “Performance of the new Intel Caby Lake CPU and any new Z270 based Motherboard may not be a big deal for us Gamers. But this new Asus TUF Z270 Mark 1 is a very special Motherboard in my opinion and it earns itself a special place in my heart (yes I really do like it that much!). It also earns itself a much deserved Gold award.” more

    ROG MAXIMUS IX HERO

    Gold Award

    “It's clear this is a fully featured, and striking motherboard. Yet given the capabilities offered to anyone picking it up, it's also clear just how good it is across the board. Essentially, Asus has delivered an Z270 Maximus product that's hard to beat. High-quality components and strong specifications match striking design and great performance – if other Maximus products perform to relatively high levels Asus can be proud.”

    “The big question for you, the consumer: should you buy it? i think it all comes down to how much of the availability functionality you use - obviously not everyone can use everything that this board has to offer, but if you can use enough to justify the price tag, then it's certainly worth serious consideration for your next Kabylake custom PC.” more

    ROG Claymore

    Recommended

    The packaging is very well done with the ROG Claymore, coming in a well-designed and informative sleeve. Sliding the sleeve off reveals a hard-foam casing, where you'll find the keyboard, numpad and wiring housed in velvet bags – a nice touch. You'll also find a quick-start guide, other materials, and two nice high-quality logo stickers for those of us who enjoy showing off what we've got.
