ASUS Z170-PRO-GAMING LGA1151 ATX Motherboard

- Replaced by the ASUS ROG STRIX Z270H GAMING LGA1151 ATX Motherboard

High-value, feature-packed, performance-optimised Z170 ATX motherboard.

Intel Z170 Express is a single-chipset design that supports 6th-generation (Skylake) Intel LGA1151 Core i7/Core i5/Core i3/Pentium/Celeron processors. It provides improved performance by utilising serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. Additionally, Z170 provides a maximum of ten USB 3.0 ports, six SATA 6Gbit/s ports, 32Gbit/s M.2 and PCIe 3.0 lane speed support for faster data retrieval. Intel Z170 Express also supports integrated-graphics (iGPU) functions, so you'll enjoy the very latest Intel integrated graphics performance.

Flawless audio that makes you part of the game

SupremeFX audio technology achieves near-lossless audio quality and has multiple light effects to illuminate the exclusive red-line shielding, plus Sonic Radar II technology to locate battlefield enemies before they spot you! The ASUS-exclusive technology that produces near-lossless audio quality with a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB, so you enjoy every sound detail.

Intel Gigabit Ethernet

Featuring the very latest Intel Ethernet (i-219V) for faster, smoother gaming — always. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay.


Signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounting ensure a more reliable connection and better throughput, plus electrostatically-guarded and surge-protected components (ESD Guards) for 1.9X-greater tolerance to static electricity and 2.5X-greater protection (up to 15KV) against surges.

GameFirst III

Exclusive GameFirst III prioritises game-related packets and allocates more bandwidth to games, eliminating laggy gameplay, streaming stutters and file-sharing slowdown — so you'll always be the frontrunner. Choose from Optimization, Game, Media Streaming or File Sharing presets and watch your network fly!

Go Faster with PRO Clock technology

A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel processors that extends overclocked base clock frequencies up to 400MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU), to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.

* BCLK overclocking range will vary according to CPU capabilities, cooling, motherboard support and tuning options.

DDR4 overclocking strength in numbers

Second-generation ASUS T-Topology enables DDR4 memory overclocking to reach new heights: over DDR4-3400MHz with all memory slots populated. Featuring a customised trace layout for reduced crosstalk and coupling noise, our second-generation T-Topology ensures time-aligned signal transfer for improved memory stability and compatibility.

One-stop performance-optimisation panel

AI Suite 3 is an exclusive ASUS dashboard-style control panel that lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your Z170 Pro Gaming-based system for the best balance between performance, stability, efficiency and aesthetics — all via a simple and intuitive interface.

Real world protection

Motherboard self-protection with loads of brilliant defenses, including our unique smart DIY features. Individually they're tough, together they're unstoppable.

USB Type-C for convenient connectivity

USB Type-C (USB-C) delivers future device compatibility and high-speed USB connectivity of 5Gbit/s from a slim, reversible port. One third smaller than traditional USB Type-A. Any-way-up design means USB connections are made first time, every time, future-proof compatibility. Compatible with the latest devices today and the exciting new trends of tomorrow.

10Gbit/s USB 3.1 onboard

With USB 3.1 Type-A port, you'll experience data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s — or twice as fast USB 3.0. USB 3.1 is completely backward-compatible with your existing USB devices, and you'll be all set for USB 3.1's breakneck speeds. And ASUS-exclusive USB 3.1 Boost technology automatically accelerates USB 3.1 performance even further!


With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbit/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible.

SATA Express

Current SSDs devour up to 550MB/s bandwidth, which is close to saturation point for SATA 6Gbit/s connections. Backwardly compatible with up to two SATA drives, SATA Express is the next-generation connectivity standard — and ensures that you and your system won't get left behind.
