What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS PRIME Z370-P LGA1151 DDR4 HDMI DVI M.2 Z370 ATX Motherboard with USB 3.1 for 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors
  • I paired this one with an Intel i-7 8700K and 16 GB (two 8GB sticks) of Patriot Viper 3400 to go with my GTX 1080ti. My current setup is incredible on 2k gaming!
  • I've had uniformly good results with my last several builds using ASUS motherboards and this MoBo will be my choice for my next project as well.
  • MoBo has a nice compatibility and good quality, recommend!
  • I am not recommend this board coz compatibility is awful!
  • Mobo has not enough supported processors, not recommended.
ASUS Prime Z370-A II LGA1151
  • Good board for 9th gen and small builds decent.
  • Unlocked overclocking due to Z390 chipset; and more VRMs for high-end CPUs like 9700/9900. Not bad!
  • All the support needed for direct use with 9th gen Intel processors and backward compatibility for 8th gen out of the box.
  • Nice compatibility with a lot of processors, its very important!
  • The sockets make it difficult to add extra HDD, which is problem with the Case (Astect) not the mother board.

What customers say about "Memory"
ASUS PRIME Z370-P LGA1151 DDR4 HDMI DVI M.2 Z370 ATX Motherboard with USB 3.1 for 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors
  • Memory speed quite decent for that price category.
  • Maximum speed is pretty enough for that mobo!
  • Max memory is 64. I think is plenty for now.
  • 4 slots, up to 64 max memory, ddr4, good, obviously good.
  • My tests show that the speed is less than what the manufacturer claims!
ASUS Prime Z370-A II LGA1151
  • It works great with 9700K and 3200 DDR4.
  • Overclocking wise, I am only using the RAM feature and getting 3200Mhz without issues with memory as such.
  • The automatic overclocking did work in the end and now runs 38% overclocked, with 4 GHZ for memory and CPU. Really not bad!
  • Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive. Its really feels, highly recommended!
  • The BIos does not accept 4 GHZ memory as standard had to run it as overclocked to make it work, which I prefer not to do if I can.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS PRIME Z370-P LGA1151 DDR4 HDMI DVI M.2 Z370 ATX Motherboard with USB 3.1 for 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors
  • I've installed Samsung 960 EVO m.2 SSD on the Z370P. Screws and offset for mounting .m2 SSD came with the Motherboard.
  • Running Monitor using NVidia GTX 1080 and Sound with Creative sound card, so just using USB and Ethernet connections off the back of the motherboard.
  • I like the M.2 slots, the RGB lighting and control--in a few words, I like everything.
  • Board have a lot of ports and connectors that works fine without any problems.
  • Board has many connectors and ports, that fine, i like it!
ASUS Prime Z370-A II LGA1151
  • 2x M.2 PCIe/NVMe ports x4 thus you can have 2x SSDs on the board!
  • 3x PWM FAN headers (+CPU) thus pretty good control of modern fans.
  • A sufficient number of slots for fans, for high-speed processors and memory. Decent board!
  • HDMI is naturally 1.4 not 2.0 thus at 4k (2160p) you're limited to 30Hz (naturally no HDR either)! So if you wanted a HTPC system you're going to need a dedicated GPU with HDMI 2.0/60Hz
  • No USB-C port anymore like the old Z170M or Z370M/II for some reason?

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS PRIME Z370-P LGA1151 DDR4 HDMI DVI M.2 Z370 ATX Motherboard with USB 3.1 for 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors
  • I've experimented with overclocking through the BIOS and can report a solid UI, as intuitive as any I have seen.
  • Shinier motherboards are out there, but you won't find more features that you actually need to enhance your gaming experience than this one right here.
  • Asus provides software that allows for monitoring motherboard and CPU temperatures, plus CPU frequency and all fans rpm while in windows 10.
  • The BIOS is so simple to use, and the sensors post fan speed, and everything else of any import.
  • The only criticism of this motherboard I have is that the setting for on-board graphics vs graphics card was buried pretty deeply in the bios.
ASUS Prime Z370-A II LGA1151
  • Asus BIOS is easy to mod say if you wanted to add SLIC or other features but remember you need to extract the capsule.
  • Additional features such as M.2 and NVME support with USB 3.1 is a nice touch!
  • It’s got a great colour scheme, everything is easy to locate on the board, i am happy!
  • Poor RGB software. Don't buy this board for RGB.
  • The RGB lighting software worked on first install, but then broke.
