GIGABYTE's Z170X-UD5 TH is a solid motherboard without any quirks or performance pitfalls when it comes to CPU, memory, and GPU subsystems. It does look like it's using some form of multi-core enhancement at stock. Overall performance is strong, and there are no pitfalls.

 

Some motherboard reviews put a lot of weight into motherboard CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks, but for me CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks on motherboards should be more about finding anomalies, and I do that at standard settings (4.5G in graphs).
