Good motherboard for the price, easy to navigate intuitive UEFI, wifi, 3 M.2 slots, and RGB lighting.
Default settings and everything works. The only setting I tweaked was activating the XMP profile from the BIOS/UEFI screen.
This motherboard is leaps ahead of anything I've used before. I never knew I could enjoy working with a board this much, and I understand now why people spend more for nicer boards. The amount of detail and design that was put into this board is fantastic.
I mainly chose this board for Hackintosh reasons. Gigabyte has been known to play very well with MacOS (with some work of course). I chose it over the Gaming 3 because the Gaming 5 has a Display Port and built in Wifi/BT. Gaming 7 seemed unnecessary and it was close to $100 more (5 was on sale and had a mail-in rebate at time of purchase). The amount of features on this board is absurd, for me at least. Again, coming from a mini-ITX build, holy crap I have so much room to build and so many places to put things!
First Of All This Is Not The First Gigabyte Motherboard For Me This Is Maybe Number 5 Or 6 , And Really I Used To Be Happy With Gigabyte Motherboards In Terms Of Reliability , Performance, Designing , Price , So Always Gigabyte Is My Choice For Motherboard And GPUs Too
When I Started looking at the New Z370 I Was Confused Between Many Gigabyte Z370 Models But At The End I Found The Aorus Z370 Gaming 5 The Best Price/Performance One , A Motherboard With All These Features For Only 200£ , So I Picked It Up With Intel Core I7 8700K Processor And Dual Samsung 860 EVO M.2 SSDs
Before Installing My Motherboard Inside My Case I Didn't Expect The Overall Look But Really I Didn't Worry About This Point And I Was Sure The Motherboard Will Fit With Any Build Whatever The Colors Of The Build Components Because The Motherboard Is Black And Covered With Awesome Customizable RGB LED Lights , And Really Was What I Expected
After Powering Up My Pc , Jumped To The And It Was Very Easy And Simple Also Looks Very Well , Then I Enabled The M.2 Raid And It Was The Most Excited Part For Me
To Be Honest I Was Looking For An External Sound Card Or DAC But After Trying The Sound Card I Didn't I Didn't Believe The Sound Quality Of The Sound Card Really Didn't Expect This Awesome Sound Quality From Motherboard Build In Sound Card So I Decided To Keep It As My Main Sound Card And I Really Very Happy With It With My Audio Technica Headset
Then I Decided To Start The Most Important Part The ( Overclocking Experience ) , I Was Able To Overclocking My I7 8700K To 5.2GHZ For 1.310V And Really The Overclocking Experience Was Very Stable And Safe
Here is What I Like About The Motherboard:
- Stylish And Up To Date Design
- Software Customizable RGB LED
- Triple M.2 Slots
- PCI-E And Ram Slots Metal Shield
- Awesome Onboard Sound Card
- Smart Fan Option
This Was My Feedback About My New Gigabyte Aorus Z370 Gaming 5 , If You are Looking For A Z370 Motherboard With Awesome Features And Good Price , Of Course You Will Find What You Are Looking For With This Motherboard.
Very good MOBO. but have hist problems, the cooler on top prevent AIO larger coolers to be placed correctly, the RGB is cool but the software could use some love in usability and design and some connectors could be placed near the edges to help cable management, and why put that RGB swapable plate that no one will swap.
Gaming 5 seems to OC well, Bios isn't as nice as my old Strix board but still does everything I need to.
RGB elements are nice - Fusion software does seem to control the Trident Z memory too.
Really enjoying this board. The layout is easy to work with. It's packed with features for the price. Not the best BIOS config screen I've ever seen, but it's functional with a good feature set. Would definitely recommend if you want WIFI and front USB-C compatible headers on a motherboard.
For its price, it delivers.
This board is easy to work with and looks very nice! The only issue I had was plugging in the USB 3.0 header for my case. I ended up bending/breaking a couple pins. Thankfully, I had a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 converter sitting around.
