I have reviewed more Z270 motherboards than I can count, and today I will add another to the list. While I enjoy reviewing high-end motherboards because of their unique features and beautiful hardware, more mainstream products that cost under $200 are much more popular choices for most enthusiasts. ASRock was nice enough to send over a Z270 Killer SLI right around Z270 chipset launch. Since launch, ASRock also launched the Z270 Killer SLI/AC, which is the Z270 Killer SLI with a wireless AC card.
The Z270 Killer SLI is a mainstream motherboard on the lower-end side of the spectrum, offering high value at a very reasonable price. The motherboard is loaded with many of the latest features users want, such as M.2, but it also offers a color neutral aesthetic. At this price point, most vendors don't offer much in regards to heat sinks and shields, but ASRock made sure to maintain the aesthetic appeal of the motherboard, so it doesn't look low-cost. I will put the motherboard through the same paces as the high-end motherboards I review, so let's see how it does.
The Z270 Killer SLI offers USB 3.0 type-A and type-C, Gbit LAN, two 32Gb/s M.2 slots, and even an RGB LED header.
The Z270 Killer SLI/ac costs $139.99.
