LOL @ people that give a crap about having built in WiFi in their gaming rigs.

Just want to let everyone know, this motherboard is made for the Intel 8xxx Coffee Lake Series only, it will not work with earlier CPUs, even if they are LGA 1151.

If I don't have a overclock CPU, there is no benefit of buying a z series board right?

You can run higher speed memory, and in general Z series motherboards may have the most premium features, so it's a question of whether those features are worth the additional cost to you.

Given that this motherboard likely isn't that much higher in cost compared to a non-Z motheroboard (when they finally do come out) it's a pretty good choice.

Be aware the Asrock cheaps out on the wifi, using only a 1x1 card.

I have the AsRock Z270 with 3 M.2 ports and I love it! I have 3x Samsung Evo 960 1TB in a RAID-0. My system flies! 3GB/sec read and write speeds.

Want a motherboard that will do decent 4k. Not for gaming as I do not game. Just web browsing and on occasional video. Most video is youtube and 1080 HD generally fine with me. I want the 4k more for having two large browser windows at once.

Would an AMD board make more sense? I hear the new processors are great and work with the graphics.

I want a machine that does not slow down while MS is doing whatever they do so often. For now I have an old server with two core 2 quad core processors. 2.67GH. Handles it fine with an older video card but 4k is restricted to 30 hz. Also a pain sometimes when MS updates. Takes a bit to get it working again having to manually tell it to do 4k.

Most new AMD chips have no video so you need separate graphics card. Do some research but I love ASrocks

The primary bottleneck in MS updates is hard drive speed: an SSD is the biggest upgrade there. If it's not actual MS updates, but instead drive indexing, an SSD really helps there, but so does turning off drive indexing.

Don't worry about getting the fastest SSD possible: if your current motherboard has onboard SATA it's going to be gen1 probably and more of a bottleneck than any decent SSD these days. If it doesn't have SATA you'll need a PCIE add-on board.

The issue you're having with 4k is related to HDMI 1.x vs 2.0: you need a video card that supports HDMI 2.0 to do 4k at 60hz, assuming your monitor supports it. Something like a gtx 1050 (don't worry about spending more for TI) will do fine for non-gaming. If your current motherboard can't take a PCI express card, then yes, you'll need to upgrade the motherboard, processor, and probably RAM too (you'll *definitely* have to buy new RAM if you go to a DDR4 board, or if your server is running registered RAM)… but why spend more doing all of that if you don't need to?

If you were gaming or planning on doing VR (core 2 don't have the extra vector instructions you need for that) I'd give you different advice, but for what you described…

If you do decide to upgrade the motherboard, the newer Intel IGPs can handle 4k at 60hz (e.g without needing a separate graphics card). I haven't researched the Ryzens for that. AMD is sometimes flaky about support for stuff like that when it's still newer.

They do have some of the best boards in recent years though for overclocking. They also include features that other manufacturers decide to put on a higher end $200+ board, when they could easily include it on the lower end boards.

what would be more optimal for a wifi card?

This is a good deal for a board with built in WiFi. I doubt you can find a better Z370 board for the price. It should have all the features most users would need. I just built an Intel i5-8600k system using an ASROCK EXTREME4, which is a bit better board, but did require an extra WiFi Card. It posted first time and I've had zero issues with it running an Oculus Rift and Overwatch.

This comes with an Intel Wireless-AC 3160 1x1 card, rated for up to 433Mbps. Honestly, it probably would be fine for most uses, unless you really need extreme LAN speeds or have a 500 Mbit broadband connection. I had pretty poor connection results with it on an Asrock Z270 Killer SLI/ac board, but I probably would have had similar issues with other wifi cards that didn't have an extended cable for the antenna. Went instead with a USB connected wifi adapter that I could raise up higher for better signal strength.
