ASUS Z370i Strix Gaming Review



If you're fancying a Z370 motherboard but want it in a teensy form factor then the ASUS Z370i Strix might be the very chap.

Exactly the right question Tom. Why aren't there more ITX builds? Few generations back now ITX boards don't lack in performance, yet the builds are still ATX. Apart from my system every other that i have seen in person has only GPU in it, and no one is even considering ITX, or mATX. Also there aren't many systembuilders that are forcing ITX.

There would be far more ITX builds if SSD storage had matured to very large drives and being affordable. The reason I do not have ITX is because for the 4tb of storage I have it would cost me more than I paid for the entire rig. Now I know you can have a NAS etc but that all just adds extra expense.

I am speaking in general. For most people 4 SATA ports are more than enough.

I've build a couple of ITX systems HTPC & kids PC, but always wanted to build a small, quiet powerful powerhouse for me. This board ticks all the boxes, but for £180 it should...

If I had the budget and could justify a new build, this would definitely be at the centre of it.

Thumbs up

It's been a long time since i last built a gaming rig but build a new one i did... using this very board as the base paired with an i5 8600K. Great piece of kit and with a basic AIO cooler it handles my 5ghz OC with ease. 512gb M2 drive, 1080ti hybrid, 32GB ram. Huge spec, tiny footprint, great thermals... and i got to reclaim a load of real estate on my desk too.

In fact, it is such a potent package my dad has asked me to build him a slightly scaled down system in a Phanteks Shift case, as he loves the design, and has caught the first person shooter bug from me.

One of only two ITX boards with two M.2 slots; I own the other one.

But it's a bit flaky, so I might be getting this one.
