Gigabyte GA-Z270X-Gaming K5 Motherboard Review

Conclusion and Verdict

In conclusion, the GA-Z270X-Gaming K5 from Gigabyte is a great entry level Z270 option. You get a lot of the same performance as the high-end motherboards minus a few options and less peripheral ports. They have also included the awesome RGB it just doesn’t have multiple zones, so all the lights remain the same color. Not a con just not as fancy as the Gaming 9. I haven’t had a chance to yet but I hope to review the Gaming 9 from Gigabyte just to see how close the chipset performance actually is, until then we will roll with what we got.
