The Gigabyte Z270X-Gaming 7 is a resourceful motherboard. It does not bring more SATA and USB 3.0 ports than those offered by the chipset, but they are enough for the majority of the users. We could even list as a limitation the fact it allows up to two video cards in SLI or up to three in CrossFire, but it is actually not even recommended more than two video cards.
The audio and ethernet interfaces of the Z270X-Gaming 7 are high-end ones, but the programmable RGB LEDs around the motherboard are the real highlight.
Bringing two M.2 slots and on one U.2 connector is also an advantage, since high-end SSDs that use these standards are getting relatively popular. The overclocking capabilities of the motherboard are also interesting.
So, if you want a robust and resourceful motherboard to build a gaming PC or workstation, based on a sixth or seventh generation LGA1151 Intel CPU, intend to overclock it and has a case with a transparent window to enjoy the lights, the Gigabyte Z270X-Gaming 7 is an excellent choice.
