One of the best Z370 motherboards out there, at a very good price, especially since Newegg often does not charge tax. $189 - $30 = $159.

If you plan to overclock the BIOSes on the Taichi & Maximus give you more control than the Aorus board.

This thread on overclock.net [overclock.net] created this chart [overclock.net]of Z370 motherboards, specifically for overclocking.

This, the ROG Maximus, the ROG Apex, and the Gaming 7 were the four recommended ones.

I just bought the Gaming 7 with AmEx 20% off coupons on Amazon, and I am moving next month which means I would almost certainly miss out on the MIR since they send it to your physical address. But if I were paying full price and knew I could take advantage of the MIR, I would cancel it and jump on this in a heartbeat.

Looks like a solid list. Current Gigabyte BIOS still is what it is. It's not a deal breaker, just something to be aware of before you buy.

ASUS bios make overclocking easy but asrock is also pretty easy. Asrock has slightly better components if it was me I'd pick the cheaper one between the two. I had a Aorus gaming 7 that I returned due to vrm temps even when the heat sink was on correctly.

What are the best mobos for someone not planning to overclock, or maybe slightly (down the road)? I hate to overpay, but the more expensive mobos seem to usually have more features, not only the OC ability.

This is a much better motherboard, if you are going to overclock. The components are simply better. It will stay cooler (with updated BIOS) and will - all other things being equal - offer you better clockspeeds at lower volt.

It's also prettier, although that's subjective.

However, if you're not going to overclock, or if you don't like the looks, or if you can't be bothered with the MIR, then the FTW will save you $30 and the hassle of MIR.

I'll probably be snagging this deal, I had this and the Asus Maximus in my wishlist for about month. When I do compare of two, this looks much better than Asus, even at full price

Interesting chart - thanks.

I work in IT and do lots of hardware support, but still dont know WTF a 'monoblock' is, as it's mentioned on the chart. Something specific to the BIOS chipset, perhaps?

No, it can be part of a watercooling loop, and it covers both CPU and the VRM, so it cools the VRM too. Check out this picture of a monoblock on a m [newegg.com]obo.

This chart was made by people who REALLY take overclocking seriously. Smilie
