The GA-Z170X-UD5 TH LGA1151 ATX Motherboard from Gigabyte lets you build a Windows system running on a 6th-generation Intel Skylake processor by featuring an Intel Z170 chipset along with an LGA1151 socket. This motherboard assigns your processor's multiple PCI lanes to its six PCIe 3.0 slots and a single M.2 slot. Your processor also comes with an integrated graphics chipset that outputs 4K visuals through the two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a single HDMI port. Each of the Thunderbolt 3 ports features a reversible USB Type-C interface and provides power as well as data at a rate of 40 Gb/s. For SATA-based optical drive and storage drive connectivity, six SATA III and three SATA Express connectors are onboard. There are also four DIMM slots available so you can equip this motherboard with up to 64GB of DDR4 memory modules.

You can use this motherboard to build a gaming machine by installing multiple dedicated graphics cards and link them with AMD CrossFire technology or NVIDIA SLI technology. To complete the multimedia experience, the Realtek ALC1150 audio processor surrounds you with 8-channel sounds via six audio jacks. For accessing networks, an Intel Ethernet controller lets this system connect with reliable Gigabit speeds. Other ports offered are four USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports as well as a PS/2 combo port.

Intel Z170 Express Chipset
The Z170 chipset is designed to support Intel's 6th-generation of Skylake processors. It delivers RAID support and six SATA III ports so the system can protect and quickly access data. This chipset natively supports up to ten USB 3.0 and fourteen USB 2.0 ports as well as twenty PCIe 3.0 lanes for faster data retrieval.
Intel LGA1151 Socket
This motherboard supports Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium/Celeron processors in the LGA1151 package. These processors come with integrated graphics, memory, and PCI-Express controllers to deliver onboard graphics, dual-channel DDR4 memory support, and PCI Express 3.0 lanes for graphics performance.
Intel Thunderbolt 3 Technology
Powered by Intel's Thunderbolt controller, this motherboard sports two Thunderbolt 3 ports that deliver data at a rate of up to 40 GB/s, which is two times faster than the previous generation. These ports come with a USB Type-C interface so you can always connect USB Type-C devices the first time. These connections provide power and support up to six devices each. You can daisy-chain two 4K monitors on a single port. In addition, Thunderbolt 3 is compatible USB 3.1, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.2 devices.
Gigabyte Design
Armed with an onboard Turbo B-Clock Tuning IC, you can change the BCLK frequency of your processor between ranges of 90 to 500 MHz. To provide reliability, solid capacitors are used and the power trace paths have twice the amount of copper over standard motherboards. The PCIe slots feature a reinforced stainless steel design that provides extra strength to support heavy graphics cards. To cool the chipset and PWM area, Gigabyte has outfitted this motherboard with built-in heat sinks. Furthermore, a DualBIOS design gives you a Main BIOS and a Backup BIOS to ensure the system stays running in the case of failure due to a virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings, or power failure during the update process.
High-Definition Audio Design
The Realtek ALC1150 audio processor creates realistic sound effects through the six audio ports. Gigabyte has equipped this motherboard with an audio noise guard path to safeguard these sounds. Additionally, this path features LED lighting that can be programmed to beat at the rhythm of the music you are listening to, or pulse at a soothing pace.
