Intel Z370 motherboards round-up: 17 times Coffee Lake

The best motherboards with the Z370-chipset

Overclocking features

A lot of motherboards have more than enough fan headers and the PWM-support is solid in all cases. Only the Gigabyte HD3P and the ASUS Z370-I are a little undersized in this regard, but in the case of the ASUS it is because of the ITX-format. 

Note that the Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 is the only board that has a fan for cooling the mosfets. This is not a positive characteristic in our opinion. Other overclocking features are mostly found on the more expensive models. ASRock offers on-board buttons for power/reset and problem diagnosis on both the Gaming K6 as well as the Taichi. ASUS adds voltage measuring points to this on the Maximus X Hero, but on the regular ROG Strix-boards all of these features are missing. 

Both Gigabyte and MSI offer one board with overclocking features, respectively the Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 and the MSI Z370 Godlike Gaming.
