Preview: Gigabyte Z270X Ultra Gaming Motherboard

A few days ago, the FunkyKit Team went shopping for a Z270 motherboard and a Kaby Lake processor.  In the end, we managed to get the Gigabyte Z270X Ultra Gaming Motherboard featuring the “RGB Fusion”, which is perfect for our Project MakeMeCooler Doraemon PC build (build log part 1 and part 2). As for the Kaby Lake processor … we decided to get the Intel Core i5-7600K which we think is more than enough.
