Packaging and Overview
The box for the Z370XP SLI has a box invigorated with RGB LED producible colors. Packaging is basic but gets the job done.
The accessory package includes four SATA6Gb/s cables, IO shield, G-Connector, case badge, manual, and driver DVD.
The Z370XP SLI has five fan headers, all of them are PWM/DC mode headers. The one header circled in blue is a pump header that runs full speed by default, while the rest of the headers run off a standard cooling curve you can change in the UEFI or through Windows.
The motherboard has an interesting black and white color theme. The PCB and the heat sinks match together to produce one of the unique color themes. The back of the motherboard has some LEDs but only near the audio section and under the translucent XMP logo.
The rear IO panel features PS/2 keyboard and mouse, six USB 3.0 ports, USB 3.1 type-A, USB 3.1 type-C, HDMI, Gbit LAN, and 7.1 audio outputs.
The PCI-E layout is simple; the first two large reinforced x16 slots operate at x16/x0 or x8/x8. The bottom x16 slot is x4 PCI-E 3.0 electrical and there are two x1 PCI-E slots routed to the CPU. The last slot shares all of its bandwidth with the bottom M.2 slot. The top M.2 slot supports both SATA and NVMe/PCI-E based M.2 drives, and SATA 6Gb/s port 0 is disabled if you use a SATA based M.2 drive.
The second M.2 slot near the last x16 slot supports only PCI-E/NVMe drives and shares all of its bandwidth with the last x16 slot. We also find six SATA6Gb/s ports, one shares bandwidth with the top M.2 drive only if a SATA based drive is used.
We find two USB 3.0 internal headers below the 24-pin power connector. At the bottom of the motherboard near the front panel headers, we find two USB 2.0 internal headers.
We also find an RGB LED header at the bottom of the motherboard to the right of an LPT header and COM header. The VRM heat sinks use a pushpin method to attach to the motherboard while the IO cover and PCH heat sink use screws.
