GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-SOC FORCE LGA1151 Motherboard Review

Motherboards/Intel S1151 by stefan @ 2016-07-22

The Z170X-SOC Force is one of the most advanced motherboards which have passed through our labs and is packed with a ton of features, hardware and software wise. Besides the 4-way SLI, the three M.2 32Gb/s slots, a beefy VRM, USB 3.1 support via Intel controller we do also have multiple options to overclock the system (via Wi-Fi, via the HW-OC tethering function, via the BIOS or via the Windows software), a well-optimized BIOS to handle overclocked memory without the need of tinkering with each and every timing or we could also remind that we can power up the board without the CPU installed.
