Ready for 7th Generation Intel Core Kaby Lake processors and 24/7 operation, the TUF Z270 Mark 2 LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard from ASUS possesses all the looks, durability, and cooling that The Ultimate Force (TUF) motherboards are known for. Thermal Armor and Thermal Radar Core provide ducted airflow and system fan control for improved cooling, while SafeSlot provides PCIe rigidity for heavyweight GPUs. This motherboard is designed to fit in standard sized ATX cases. The TUF Z270 Mark 2 supports both 6th and 7th generation Intel Core i7, i5, i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors, the LGA 1151 socket, and the Z270 chipset. This motherboard is compatible with Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (64-bit), and 7 (32/64-bit) operating systems, although Windows 8.1 and 7 are only supported with 6th generation processors. Also supported is USB 3.1 Type-A, which can achieve data transfer rates of up to 10 Gb/s.

The ATX form factor of the TUF Z270 Mark 2 can support 64GB of RAM and comes with four 288-pin dual-channel DIMM slots that can each hold 16GB of DDR4 3866 (OC), 3733 (OC), 3600 (OC), 3466 (OC), 3400 (OC), 3333 (OC), 3300 (OC), 3200 (OC), 3000 (OC), 2800 (OC), 2666 (OC), 2400 (OC), and 2133 MHz memory. It also has a total of 6 x SATA III 6 Gb/s ports that support RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10, 2 x M.2 Socket 3 connectors that support SATA & PCIe SSDs, 2 x 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-A ports, 8 x USB 3.0/2.0 ports (4 at the back panel, 4 at the front), 6 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and 1 x Gigabit LAN port. For those looking to expand their system using PCIe, there are 2 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 slots (single at x16, dual at x8/x8), 1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot (max at x2), and 3 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1 slots.

For delivering sharp, clear graphics, this motherboard supports integrated Intel HD Graphics with access to up to 1,024MB of shared graphics memory and is equipped with HDMI and DVI video outputs. There is also multi-GPU support for NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX technology. Using the 8-Channel ALC 887 HD audio codec, this motherboard can support optical audio using its S/PDIF audio-out jack.

The TUF Z270 Mark 2 has also been designed with TUF features such as strict reliability tests, TUF Capacitors, TUF Chokes, TUF MOSFETs, TUF ESD Guards 2, and TUF LANGuard, as well as other ASUS motherboard features, such as AI Charger, CrashFree BIOS 3, MemOK!, Q-Connector, DIGI+ VRM, AI Suite 3, UEFi BIOS, EZ Flash 3, and more.

    ASUS Z270 reviews

    TUF Z270 Mark 2 LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Stable,Solid Performance Bought this as soon as it came out because I wanted the Z270 chipset. Stiff, solid build. Feels much more expensive. Immediately upgraded to the latest firmware to address video and memory timing/compatibility. It posted perfectly. Used Asus auto overclock feature in UEFI Bios utility to achieve instant and rock solid stable overclock of 15% with a Kaby Lake i7-7700K cpu, 32-GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR-4 3000 RAM and an MSI 8-GB Armor 480 video card. XMP profile worked perfectly. Excellent performance with a Samsung Pro 960 512-GB NVME storage device. Highly recommended combo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - Would buy again This board was one of the easiest to install and set-up that I have done in years. Pros: I like everything about it--the design, the implied military look, the layout, etc. Cons: I could use a couple more fan ports, but almost all mobos need that. All-in-all: It is a well built motherboard that fulfills it's mission.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Mainboard This is a very good board after updating the BIOS. There are lots of automated settings, especially, for PCIe X channel compatibility if you mine cryptocurrencies. The original BIOS must have been released way too early. Good for gaming as well and overclocks nicely with proper water-cooling components. Previous TUF boards had more included accessories such as temperature probes and protective covers albeit at a higher price point. Not everyone has a 3d printer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I recommend, but don't to forget to read reviews Solid Motherboard but its not exactly atx size doesn't fit the last row of screws on the board but its still solid without them
