The Z170 Pro Gaming/Aura LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard from ASUS combines all your internal components together to create a 6th-generation Intel-based system that is capable of supporting up to three dedicated graphics cards. The motherboard comes with an Intel Z170 chipset along with an LGA 1151 socket to support Intel's Core, Pentium, and Celeron processors. For personalizing the style of the motherboard, ASUS provides 3D designs so you can print custom parts with your 3D printer and lets you mount the 3D-printed part to where an M.2 drive would go. Additionally, it comes built with RGB LEDs that illuminate the insides of the computer with various color-changing effects.

The Z170 Pro Gaming/Aura motherboard is outfitted with four DDR4 DIMM slots that can hold up to 64GB of memory modules. For optical and storage drives, six SATA ports are on board. In addition, the motherboard is equipped with an M.2 socket 3 slot for your PCIe- or SATA-based SSD.

This motherboard provides native 4K support with an integrated Intel GPU via the DVI, VGA, DisplayPort, and HDMI ports. To render detailed 3D visuals, you may install dedicated graphics cards to the three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots and link them with AMD CrossFireX or NVIDIA SLI technology. There are also three PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1 slots to grant your system with extra capabilities. Moreover, you can listen to music or movies with 8-channel surround sound once you connect speakers to the motherboard's six audio jacks.

Other ports offered are four USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports as well as a single PS/2 port. Aside from these ports, the motherboard has two USB 3.1 ports that transfer data at 10 Gb/s speeds, and one of these ports sports a USB Type-C interface. Furthermore, networking is handled by the Gigabit Ethernet port.
Intel Z170 Chipset
The Intel Z170 single-chipset design is compatible with 6th-generation Intel LGA 1151 Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, the Z170 chipset supports a maximum of ten USB 3.0 ports and six SATA 6 Gb/s ports along with 32 Gb/s M.2 and PCIe 3.0 lane speed support for faster data retrieval. It also provides integrated-graphics (iGPU) functions.
Ready for 6th-Generation Processors
This motherboard supports 6th-generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium/Celeron processors in the LGA 1151 package. For visuals, it has 16 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes for dedicated graphical chipsets and onboard video outputs to support integrated graphics. In addition, it is compatible with two-channel (4-DIMM) DDR4 memory.
3D Printing Friendly
The Z170 Pro Gaming/Aura is a 3D printing-friendly motherboard, offering a patent-pending mounting design that enables easy mounting of your own 3D-printed parts. You can download, design and print your own 3D parts and then integrate them seamlessly into your Z170 Pro Gaming/Aura build. ASUS lets you create and print personalized nameplates to brand your rig or design your own protection armor or cable-management solution.
Aura Lighting Control
Customize your own favorite LED effects with Aura, a lighting-controlled software design casts a multi-color glow across your build via the motherboard's built-in RGB LEDs. It comes with 12 lighting schemes and lets you customize frequency and direction and sync your lighting style with optional Aura-capable gear.
SupremeFX
With a shielded design, electromagnetic-interference (EMI) cover, and voltage-protected 5V power supply, SupremeFX technology delivers high-fidelity, near-lossless audio with a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB. It is built Nichicon audio capacitors along with a Realtek ALC1150 codec and a 300-ohm headphone amplifier for acoustic performance. Moreover, Sonic Radar II software is included so you can pinpoint enemies before they spot you.
ASUS PRO Clock Technology
ASUS offers a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel processors so you can overclock the base clock frequencies up to 400 MHz. This custom solution works with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control. The technology offers your system reduced boot times, lower jitter under extreme conditions for higher overclocks, and increased stability under heavy overclocking.
5-Way Optimization
With a single click, you can adjust the ASUS TPU (TurboV Processing Unit), EPU (Energy Processing Unit) and Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM), Fan Xpert 3, and Turbo App technologies for enhanced performance and efficiency.
UEFI BIOS
The mouse-controlled graphical BIOS includes EZ mode that helps you get set up very quickly by applying the date and time, fan profiles, and Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory profiles. Switch to Advanced Mode to set up favorites and shortcuts, record and review recent changes with Last Modified, or make notes in Quick Notes.
Graphics Protection
Protect your graphics card investment with SafeSlot, which is a PCIe slot that is engineered to provide improved retention and shearing resistance. The slot is manufactured in a single step using an injection-molding process, which integrates the slot with a fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot. It is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
Additional Features
  • LANGuard: Provides electrostatically-guarded and surge-protected components (ESD Guards) for 1.9X-greater tolerance to static electricity and 2.5X-greater protection (up to 15KV) against surges
