Verdict and Conclusion
In conclusion, the ASRock Z370 Killer SLI/ac motherboard is a decent performer that’s designed and aimed at the mainstream user. Even though it’s not an enthusiast motherboard, it kept up with the Asus ROG Maximus X Hero (a motherboard that costs twice as much) in all our benchmark tests.
What about the extras? Well, it does come with a decent set of features, that will allow you to plug and go right away, but don’t expect to any enthusiasts features. There’s no diagnostic LEDs, power-on or reset buttons. I do like the 2 x M.2 connectors and the PCIE steel slots, as well as the simple plastic hood for the I/O panel.
For overclocking, it was pretty modest. I’m not an extreme overclocking enthusiast … but I was able to overclock the Intel Core i7-8700K from the default speed of 3.7GHz to a acceptable 5.0GHz. Temperatures was extremely high during our full load tests … so I highly recommend a custom water loop (or a powerful AIO) with a large radiator.
Price-wise, the ASRock Z370 Killer SLI/ac is one of the most affordable Z370 motherboard on the market, making it extremely attractive for the budget or mainstream user.
