The ASUS Z170-K ATX Motherboard provides a suitable platform for building a solid PC system that uses a 6th-generation Intel processor and DDR4 RAM. Utilizing four DIMM slots, you can install up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, which can be overclocked up to 3466 MHz. The single PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 connector offers a data transfer rate up to 32 Gb/s to support a high-speed SSD. The rear of the motherboard sports two USB 3.1 ports so your system can experience data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s. Additionally, it comes with a USB type-C port that features a reversible design.

This Z170-K ATX motherboard is outfitted with two PCI Express x16 slots for supporting dedicated graphics cards in an AMD CrossFireX configuration. In addition, there are two PCIe 3.0 x1 and two PCI slots. Storage and optical drives connect using the motherboard's six SATA 6 Gb/s connectors. Moreover, you get a SATA Express connector that is backwards compatible with up to two SATA drives. For printers or other peripherals, this motherboard has two USB 2.0 ports. Networking comes from the Realtek RTL8111H controller while audio is delivered from the Realtek ALC887 codec. It also comes with three video and three audio ports as well as a single PS/2 keyboard port and one PS/2 mouse port.

Hardware Safeguards
ASUS has designed this motherboard with 5X Protection II that employs reliable components and an efficient circuit design as well as exacting standards to provide long-term durability and all-round protection.
LANGuard
ASUS LANGuard is a hardware-level network protection that utilizes signal-coupling technology along with anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to help ensure a more reliable connection and better throughput. Additionally, electrostatically-guarded and surge-protected components provide greater tolerance to static electricity and greater protection against surges.
Overvoltage Protection
This motherboard comes with an exclusive circuit design along with built-in voltage regulators to protect your chipset, connectivity ports, and audio codecs from damage caused by unexpected voltages from unstable power supplies.
DRAM Overcurrent Protection
Onboard resettable fuses prevent over-current and short-circuit damage. This protection extends beyond the I/O ports to the DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.
DIGI+ VRM
ASUS DIGI+ VRM intelligently delivers power to the processor based on real-time demands, thereby reducing energy waste and improving system stability.
Stainless-Steel Back I/O
The corrosion-resistant stainless steel back I/O panels have been bonded with chromium oxide to ensure a lifespan that's three times longer than ordinary panels.
ESD Guards
ASUS employs an active protective circuit design that guards your system against electrostatic interference and damage. ASUS offers ESD Guards that are rated for up to +/- 10kV for air discharge and +/-15kV for contact discharge. These ESD Guards help protect the USB, VGA, keyboard, and mouse connectors as well as the LAN port.
DDR4
ASUS provides a 2nd generation T-Topology that enables DDR4 memory to reach higher heights. You can overclock the memory modules up to 3466 MHz with all memory slots populated. Featuring a customized trace layout for reduced crosstalk and coupling noise, the 2nd generation T-Topology ensures a time-aligned signal transfer for improved memory stability and compatibility.
UEFI BIOS
The BIOS offers a mouse-controlled graphical interface along with EZ and Advanced Modes so you can find your way quickly and easily.
  • EZ Flash 3 - lets you update the BIOS via the Internet and from within the BIOS
  • S.M.A.R.T - checks your device's Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology logs to gauge reliability and even determine if they're about to fail
  • EZ Tuning Wizard - OC and RAID - allow you to select your hardware and apply different scenarios to tune system performance, or streamline your RAID configuration
  • My Favorites - provides a list that contains your preferred tuning options and tools

EZ Mode
  • Intuitive Graphical Fan Control: Adjusts the spin speed for each fan by dragging a curve with the mouse
  • EZ XMP Settings: Improve DRAM performance
  • SATA Information: Each SATA port has details displayed, so you can easily recognize devices
  • Fast Clock Adjustment: Change the time and date in EZ Mode using the mouse

Advanced Mode
  • GPU Port: Automatically detect selected ASUS graphics cards to view detailed information
  • Secure Erase: Restores your SSDs to the day you first received them
  • Last Modified Log: Track last change and save preferred profiles onto a USB drive
  • SATA Port Renaming: Rename the SATA ports for easy identification
SATA Express
This motherboard comes with a SATA Express connector that is backwards compatible with up to two SATA drives.
M.2 Slot
With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32 Gb/s data-transfer speeds. It is suitable for use as an operating system or application drive connection, making your whole PC work that much faster.
USB 3.1 Onboard
The two USB 3.1 ports transfer data at a rate up to 10 Gb/s. These USB ports have a type-A form factor and are backwards compatible with previous versions of USB. In addition, ASUS offers USB 3.1 Boost technology that accelerates the USB 3.1 performance even further.
USB 3.0 Connection
This motherboard features USB 3.0 headers that support up to four USB 3.0 ports on the front panel of your chassis. USB 3.0 is plug-and-play compatible and transfers data up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.
USB Type-C
This USB type-C port features a reversible design that lets you connect the first time. Additionally, it is a third smaller when compared to a type-A port. Once connected, it transfers data at a rate up to 5 Gb/s.
Gaming Audio
ASUS has provided audio shielding on this motherboard to help ensure analog/digital separation and reduce multi-lateral interference. The left and right audio tracks are separated so both channels can deliver consistent and equal quality. Japanese audio capacitors are included to provide a warm, natural, and immersive sound along with clarity and fidelity. Additionally, this path is illuminated with an LED.
Component-Free Areas
The areas around the case-mounting holes are free of components to help minimize the risk of damage and short circuits caused by contact.
Q-Slot
The PCI slots feature large-winged clips so you can easily remove your PCI express cards.
Q-DIMM
The RAM slots have one-sided clips that can be push down for easily removing RAM modules.
Fan Xpert 3
With onboard thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 3 makes sure every fan achieves a better balance of cooling performance and low noise.
  • Auto-Tuning Mode: Scans and detects all fan characteristics for single-click customization
  • Extreme Quite Mode: Reduces the CPU fan speed to below the default minimum, for quiet operation and power savings during light loads
  • RPM Fixed Mode: Lowers noise levels to near-0dB silence, allowing to you fix the fan's speed
