ASROCK H370M-ITX/AC (Intel H370) Motherboard Review

Here are key points about the ASROCK H370M-ITX/AC.

 

What's Hot

 

Solid VRM: The H370M-ITX/ac uses a very decent VRM for such a tiny motherboard. While you might not think 4+2 phases is enough for Coffee Lake, it is more than enough if you are not overclocking, and since you cannot overclock an H370 motherboard, it's more than enough phases. Thermal imaging reinforces the VRM's quality.

Six SATA6Gb/s: Many mini-ITX motherboards drop a few of the SATA6Gb/s ports, but not this motherboard. It also maintains internal USB headers.

 

Rear USB: You get a total of eight USB ports on the rear IO. Two are USB 2.0, four are USB 3.0, and two are USB 3.1.

 

Plain Aesthetics: A gray and black color theme is one of the most asked-for by enthusiasts who want the motherboard to fade into the background, and this motherboard delivers. For those of you who hate RGB, rejoice! The more has no RGBs and no RGB headers.

 

What's Not

 

WIFI limited to 433Mbps: While 1x1 wireless AC is limited at 433Mbps like on this motherboard, that might be more than enough for many people.

 

Final Thoughts

 

The ASROCK H370M-ITX/ac is a low-cost Z370 alternative aimed at allowing users to take full advantage of the non-K Intel CPU SKUs while not having to disk out a premium on Z370 motherboards. The motherboard ASRock has developed is not only well suited for a small theater PC, but it would also make a great motherboard for a wide variety of systems.

You get dual Intel Gbit LAN, dual HDMI ports, a solid VRM for longevity, and a lot of SATA for storage. They motherboard also approaches aesthetics in a no-nonsense fashion, and we find no LED on the motherboard and no RGB LED header.

 

 

If you need a basic yet well-equipped H370 motherboard in the mini-ITX form factor, give the ASRock H370M-ITX/ac a look.
