    "I thought I would try and replace a motherboard in an old computer and see what happened. I am not a computer person by any means, but I found the entire process easy to do. The computer booted up on the first try and I feel really proud that I was able to figure out how to do this."

    "This board is easy to manage in the Bios and had no problems recognizing all components installed on the it. I like the placement of all the other connectors and it installed quite easily - just drop it in and connect everything and go. It automatically reloaded drivers and re-authenticated Windows and Office Software."

    "Calling all serious gamers! The GIGABYTE GA-Z270X-Ultra Gaming LGA1151 Intel 2-Way SLI ATX DDR4 Motherboard is being offered on Amazon for $135. Here are the key features: Supports 7th/6th Generation Intel Core Processors, Intel USB3.1 Gen2 with USB Type-C, Relate ALC1120 codec,USB DAC-UP 2 with Adjustable Voltage, RGB FUSION with Multi-Zone LED light Show Design 2 x Killer™ E2500 LAN chips (10/100/1000 Mbit). The tech specs are great and you might want to consider this upgrade to your system but check compatibility first. This really isn't a difficult procedure to changer out your motherboard but if you're not confident in your skills then you can have it done by resident technicians. I'd recommend this motherboard if your system has a little age on it. It can be a good upgrade that makes a real difference but if you have a brand new system with all the bells and whistles it probably wouldn't make much difference. It's a good buy at that price though."

    "Asus used to be a great brand when it came to motherboards. I'm not sure what happened in the 10 years since I bought a P4 board, but this board was DOA, and was a giant pain to get it RMA'd. I don't think I'll be going this route in the future."

    "While the idea is appealing, the motherboard needs more input. Consider the gaming PC aspect a little bit more and revolve the concept around it. The LGA-1151 processor just doesn't seem as relevant here and sounds a bit odd.. "
