Welcome to day nine of TR's 12 days of Christmas giveaways. The first order of business is, of course, to announce the winner of the PC care package that Corsair helped us give away yesterday. Congratulations, Rui Yan Matthew Loh. You're the winner of a Carbide Series Air 540 Silver Edition case, a Hydro Series H110i GTX 280mm liquid CPU cooler, and a RMx Series RM750x PSU. Look for a message soon from our business guy, Adam Eiberger, with instructions on how to claim your prize. Thanks again to Corsair for making yesterday's giveaway possible.
The GA-Z170XP-SLI sports Intel's Z170 chipset and all the latest features you've heard so much about. The PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 connector has to be near the top of that list. That slot gives you a place to put that NVMe SSD you know you want. The board also supports USB 3.1 transfer speeds, and it routes some of that speed through a Type-C connector.
Rounding out the feature list, we get support for DDR4 memory at speeds up to 3466 MT/s, enough PCIe slots for 2-way SLI or 3-way Crossfire, SATA Express, Realtek ALC1150 audio, and Gigabyte's Ambient LED tech for when you need to get funky. This board retails for $135.99 on Newegg right now.
