Now that the 8700K is in stock occasionally, check out Gigabyte's Z370 offering

The Z370 for Coffee Lake may look the same as a Z270 for Kaby Lake but unfortunately that is not the case and your Kaby CPU is not going to work.  For those who did not upgrade during the previous generation and have been patiently awaiting the availability of Coffee Lake CPUs, [H]ard|OCP's review of the Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming is worth checking out.  The board can be had for around $170 and currently includes a free PCIe WiFi card, for that price there are a lot of extras to be had.  The board is also able to offer the possibility of a decent overclock as well!

"Intel’s launched yet another chipset, so for better or worse that means new motherboards for Intel’s mainstream market. We look at GIGABYTE’s Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming to see if it’s worthy of a Coffee Lake CPU. And now that you can actually find the 8700K in stock, it is worth talking about."

They need to lose the horrible plastic IO cover, it's blocking air from cooling the VRM/power components, and it's ugly as hell. That goes for the buzzard on the chip cooler and board as well. I usually don't care how my hardware looks, but I wouldn't buy this. I do like the reinforced RAM slots and PCIe x 16 slots, more board rigidity is always desirable.

I heard that the next version of this board will be built entirely on a massive ATX-board-sized LED. So I think this is not a great buy. Better wait!
