What's Hot

Looks and feels High-end: The B360 AORUS GAMING 3 WIFI looks like a high-end motherboard, it has RGB LEDs built in, cover over the rear IO, and has a lot of ports and slots. While it's PCB is more brown than black, you won't really be able to tell the difference inside a case.

Intel's new WIFI: Intel's new Wireless-AC solution used here is rated for up to 1.733Gbps on the 160MHz band, and its performance is solid. We will wait and test the new Wireless-AC controller's full potential when we get a router capable of using the 160MHz band.

Dual BIOS: Dual BIOS is one of the first features to go on low-end motherboards as of late, but GIGABYTE made sure to keep it on here.

RGB Support: The motherboard has four RGB LED headers, two digital (addressable) and two typical RGB headers. The motherboard also has RGB LEDs built into it.

What's Not

Things You Should Know: If you use the M.2 WIFI card, the USB 2.0 port under the LAN port. The second x16 slot is electrically x4 and will downgrade to x2 if you use two of the x1 slots. The last x16 slot is electrically x1. The type-C port is USB 3.0.

Final Thoughts

The B360 Aorus Gaming 6 WIFI is a pretty high-end B360 motherboard, and while most might think that's an oxymoron, it's really not. Although it doesn't support as much as the H370 chipset, it offers enough to be competitive. It still offers up a lot of PCI-E lanes for devices and new technologies like the new WIFI and USB 3.1.

GIGABYTE also made sure to implement Intel's NIC, which is a pro for many users who are die-hard Intel NIC fans. If you want a B360 motherboard with a bit more style and flair, definitely give the B360 Aorus Gaming 3 WIFI a look.
