Today’s newest victim for the torture table is GIGABYTE’s new Z270X-Gaming SOC, their flagship overclocking motherboard. This board has one job, and only one job, to be as fast as physically possible while pushing your CPU as far as possible. There’s notably fewer features than the Z170X-SOC Force, though, because GIGABYTE has gone back to the roots of the extreme overclocker with this board. If anything can handle the punishment, it’ll be this board.
On the benching stand today is GIGABYTE’s new Z270X-Gaming 8, which comes in one step down from their gaming flagship. Everything, except the kitchen sink, was seemingly included with this motherboard. Integrated water cooling, dual Gigabit LAN, built-in Wi-Fi, and plenty more grace the Gaming 8. Let’s dig in to the details and see everything GIGABYTE brought to the table.
Never fear folks, I’m back again after a short break from reviews. Today I bring to the benching stand EVGA’s newest flagship motherboard, the Z270 Classified K. Loaded with features and ready to overclock, this motherboard should be a real winner for our community. Sit down, get comfy, it’s time to dig in.
Our next Z270 based board we will review is from MSI and is their current flagship board in the MSI Z270 XPower Gaming Titanium. If you remember our review of the Z170 version from way back in 2015, they managed to merge both a quality gaming motherboard, and a very solid overclocking motherboard into one pretty cool Titanium/Silver motherboard. While not much has changed going from Z170 to Z270, we’ll look at some of the features on the board, and make sure it still performs with the rest of them. Grab a soda, sit back, and enjoy!
