"ASUS continues to tread the fine line between value and performance with its latest revision of its base channel board in the Prime Z270-A motherboard. With the release of this new board, ASUS subtly changed the aesthetics with this board, giving it a more futuristic and tech-savvy vibe while still sticking with the based black and white coloration. Further, they added support for dual M.2 devices while not sacrificing the number of SATA devices supported by the board. And the board performs as well as its more expensive siblings. Its overclocking performance was another feather in the board's cap, easily matching that of its more pricey siblings with one caveat - its inability to boot with memory over 3866MHz. However, that issue is most likely fixable via a BIOS update. All in all, a good board with a solid feature set."
