The Gigabyte Z170X-Ultra Gaming is a tough motherboard, which has as highlight (no pun intended) the “Ambient surround LED” red illumination. However, even if its name suggests the opposite, it is simpler (and less expensive) than the Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7,  because it lacks high-end audio and network interfaces, and brings a simpler voltage regulator circuitry.

Even so, it is a fairly complete motherboard, targeted to the user that is building a gamer computer or workstation, using a sixth generation (“Skylake”) Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 CPU, up to two video cards, and that do not want to spend a small fortune on a high-end motherboard.

So, if you are building a desktop computer based on a sixth generation Intel Core i CPU into a case with transparent window, and like light inside the case, the Gigabyte Z170X-Ultra Gaming is an excellent choice.
