Just awesome. Easy bios, easy OC, easy control on LED, neutral design. (Initialy, I bought a GA-Z170N-WIFI... what a mistake. No heatsinks on mosfet so no OC and even CPU throttling on the stock version.) Don't do the same mistake and buy this Z270I please.

What a dream of a motherboard! I second I saw it I knew this was the one. z270 mITX form factor and colour neutral with a ton of built in features. Also had the RGB header too which was a nice touch.

This is a pretty decent little motherboard. I got a bundle price, plus a rebate, plus a free game so I'm feeling really good in the value department, but it actually has a good amount of features. WiFi/Bluetooth, 2 sysfan headers in addition to a CPU fan header, decently placed ports so installing it in the small cases it's meant for isn't a huge hassle. This doesn't have as many power phases as pricier boards like the Strix and others, but you can still get a pretty good overclock stable. I do think they could have fit 2 more USB ports and some people may be put off by the M.2 being on the back of the board.

It's a shame how expensive mITX motherboards are, but even at the full price, this is still not too bad. Though you probably could find something cheaper.

UEFI BIOS is super unfriendly to overclocking with a 7th gen CPU at least. Besides that it's great all around. Edit- I decided to get an M.2 SSD, before realizing MSI decided to put the extra slot on the back of the motherboard...
