ASUS Q170T/CSM overview

  • 1Description

The Q170T/CSM LGA 1151 Mini-ITX Motherboard from ASUS is designed to fit in cases that support the Mini-ITX form factor, such as DIY AIO PCs or ultra-slim systems. The full-featured 6.7 x 6.7" Q170T/CSM supports 6th Generation Intel Core i7, i5, i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors, the LGA 1151 socket, and the Intel Q170 chipset. This motherboard supports Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (64-bit), and 7 (32/64-bit).

The Mini-ITX form factor of the Q170T/CSM has 2 x SO-DIMM slots that can support up to 32GB of non-ECC unbuffered DDR4 RAM, as well as memory modules that are compatible with Intel's Extreme Memory Profile (XMP). The supported memory speed is 2133 MHz. This motherboard has a total of 4 x SATA III 6 Gb/s ports, 2 x M.2 sockets, 6 x USB 3.0/2.0 ports (4 at the back panel, 2 at mid-board), and 5 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports (all at mid-board). Using the Realtek ALC887-VD 8-Channel High Definition audio codec, this motherboard can support 8-channel HD audio.

The Q170T/CSM has integrated graphics support with one HDMI and one DisplayPort output, as well as support for eDP and LVDS, with a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2304 @ 60 Hz being supported. The integrated graphics can use up to 1,024MB of shared memory and is able to support three simultaneous displays.

ASUS has designed the Q170T/CSM with LANGuard, overvoltage protection, DRAM overcurrent protection, DIGI+ VRM, a stainless steel back I/O, Fan Xpert, AI Suite 3, and more. This motherboard is protected by a limited 3-year warranty and includes an I/O shield, a thin Mini-ITX I/O shield, a SATA power cable, two SATA III 6 Gb/s cables, two M.2 screw packages, and a disc with drivers, ASUS Utilities, EZ Update, and anti-virus software.

General Features

5X Protection II

ASUS LANGuard is hardware-level networking protection that employs signal-coupling technology and anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors that help to ensure a more reliable connection and better throughput, plus electrostatically-guarded and surge-protected components for greater tolerance to static electricity and improved protection against surges
Overvoltage Protection
A circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to help protect your chipset, connectivity ports, and audio codecs from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies
DRAM Overcurrent Protection
Onboard resettable fuses help prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond the I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of both the system and connected devices
ASUS' DIGI+ VRM delivers power to the processor based on real-time demands, helping to reduce energy waste and improve system stability
Stainless-Steel Back I/O
Corrosion-resistant stainless steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's up to three times longer than ordinary panels
