On our Intel Z170 journey we’ve so far not encountered a Micro-ATX option. In fact, Micro-ATX motherboards using the Intel Z170 chipset are fairly scarce and yet the demand for downsizing is very much a popular venture for system builders who require a compact configuration for portability or to simply make way for more space in that man-cave (or woman-cave!).
Today we’re to look at what GIGABYTE has to offer in the Z170MX-Gaming 5. This condensed motherboard shares some key similarities with its larger siblings which make use of the ATX form factor. Throughout there is an eye-catching design which carries with it a strong feature-set, with extra emphasis on audio performance.
