Introduction

GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Gaming 5 Motherboard Review 01 | TweakTown.com

We recently took a look at GIGABYTE's AORUS Gaming 7 for the Z370 platform, and today we will look at its little brother, the Z370 AORUS Gaming 5. The Gaming 5 has fewer features than the Gaming 7 but also costs about $30 less. Saying it has fewer features isn't the whole story though, as the Gaming 7 has two Gbit NICs, the Gaming 5 drops one of those for a WIFI controller.

While the two motherboards have the same look from afar, if we look closer we see some other differences in areas from USB to the VRM, so today we will dive deep into the Gaming 5 and see what it has to offer.

Specifications
