Description:

ROG Strix Z270I Gaming motherboards combine a compact, mini-ITX form-factor with bold aesthetics, premier performance, and incredible audio to deliver gaming experiences with punch and unrivalled style. Unique, angular patterns inspired by the slashes of a sword lend ROG Strix Z270I Gaming a striking visual accent, and a reflective polychrome ROG logo emblazoned on a diamond-cut metal nameplate shines as a mark of gaming pride. Support for the latest Intel processors and technologies, plus exclusive ROG innovations — such as the revolutionary double-decker heat sink — take performance to the next level to give you the edge against opponents. ROG Strix Z270I charges every movement of every game with thrilling energy and equips you with epic speed and agility. Join the Republic with ROG Strix Z270I Gaming and dominate your game!

DOUBLE-DECKER HEATSINK
ROG Strix Z270I Gaming has an innovative double-decker heatsink design that allows the M.2 SSD to be stacked atop of the PCH heat sink, which is then topped off with an additional metal heatsink for the M.2 drive. The two heatsinks are thermally isolated to prevent the PCH and M.2 from affecting each other. The double decker design not only cleverly maximises the board space on miniITX board, but also dramatically improves heat dissipation, cooling the M.2 SSD by up to 20°C for better stability and enhanced gaming performance while featuring a stylish angular design to enhance the look of ROG Strix Z270I Gaming builds.

OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION
ASUS Aura Sync RGB LED technology makes ROG Strix Z270I Gaming the control hub for your illumination ambitions — so it's easy to synchronise incredible lighting effects between compatible components, including RGB LED strips, graphics cards, keyboards and even mice! Change all LEDs in unison or employ dynamic modes to flow the illumination effects smoothly across all synchronised devices.

AURA LIGHTING CONTROL
Create your own custom LED lighting effects with the intuitive Aura software. Cast a stunning multi-color glow across your build with the powerful RGB LEDs built into ROG Strix Z270I Gaming, or attach separate RGB strips using the two onboard 4-pin header. You can even use both at the same time and enjoy perfect lighting synchronisation. Fire up Aura and enjoy the creative freedom of nine different lighting themes.

SHIELDED AUDIO, SUPERIOR SOUND
ROG Strix's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for best-ever ROG recording quality! We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220A codec, plus Texas Instruments® RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps for high gain with low distortion. It all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before!

SONIC RADAR III
We've given Sonic Radar III an overhaul, evolving the audio engine to process sounds more accurately than ever, ensuring you're always aware of what's going on around you — and we've even added an onscreen arrow to help you pinpoint the enemy's position instantly! See the origin of key in-game sounds and hone your enemy-pinpointing skills. Plus the new audio boost feature provides filters that let you hear even the faintest sounds, so you can become the hunter, not the hunted!

IMPROVED OVERCLOCKING FOR FASTER GAMING PERFORMANCE
A dedicated base-clock generator designed for 7th Generation Intel© processors allows overclocked base base-clock frequencies up to or beyond 425MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV processing unit to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control, — providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.

SPEED YOUR GAME LOADS
Uniquely intelligent technology that effectively caches an entire storage device so that favourite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds, getting to work the moment it's activated. RAMCache II turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times -- and of course it's compatible with the latest NVM Express storage options!

PUMPED-UP THROUGHPUT. BEST SURGE PROTECTION
LANGuard means safer, more reliable connections for your battles! Advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounting processes join forces to protect your Strix Z270I Gaming's connection and deliver pumped-up throughput, plus electrostatically guarded and surge-protected components (ESD Guards) for 1.9x-greater tolerance to static electricity and 2.5x-greater protection (up to 15KV) against surges!

ONBOARD WI-FI WITH TRANSFER SPEEDS UP TO 867 MBPS
ROG Strix Z270I Gaming has next-level 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 dual-band 2.4/5GHz antennas for up to 867Mbps* transfer speeds — and the very latest Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology to ensure that every connected user** experiences the best wireless and online speeds!
