Aorus Z270X-Gaming 5 & Intel i7-7700k | Overclocked and Reviewed

Originally published at: https://crit.tv/aorus-z270x-gaming-5-intel-i7-7700k-overclocked-and-reviewed/

Another quarter, another refresh. This time Gigabyte provided us with their shiny new Aorus Z270X-Gaming 5 motherboard and an Intel i7-7700k. The Aorus board provides a plethora of capabilities for your storage devices, LED customization and everything you’d ever want for overclocking your new Kaby Lake processor (although not new to the market --it even has a freakin’ button!)

So we thought we’d give 5GHz a try out of the box. Is it as easy as click-and-go?

Here are some screenshots of the benchmarks:

Are they just trying to get there Brand alphabetically in with ACER and ASUS? Pretty impressive board though. The RGB and Better Fan control integrated in the UEFI is a really nice feature.

Oh and are you planning on going to PDXLAN in Feb?

I would love to see you do a video comparing a bunch on cpus side to side in games and general stuff.

Liked the video! Quick and to the point, and loved the first ideia of everyone is doing this kinda video in this time of year! Well, like it a lot! Good new features for the future!
