Videocardz has been able to get an exclusive look at ASRock's upcoming Z370 series of motherboards, which includes ATX, MATX and ITX series boards.  
 
Intel's Z370 chipset will be compatible with Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake series of CPUs, utilising Intel's LGA 1151 socket but in a new and unique way. Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake series CPUs are not compatible with Intel's older Z270 or Z170 series motherboards, making the 300 series chipsets the only way to utilise Intel's latest CPUs, despite its use of the LGA 1151 socket.  
 
Below we can see motherboards like the ASRock Z370 Killer SLA/ac, the Z370 Extreme 4, the Z370 Pro 4, the Z370 Taichi, Z370M Pro4 and the ITX Z370M-ITX/AC

As many of our readers will notice, these designs offer very similar features to Intel's existing Z270 motherboards, offering 4 DDR4 DIMM slots dual M.2 slots and similar levels of USB 3.0, PCIe and SATA connectivity.  

At this time the exact specifications of these boards are unknown, so it is possible that 300 series chipsets will offer more than their Z270 counterparts, perhaps the addition of several more USB 3.0 or 3.1 ports or similar connectivity upgrades.

But why is the x16 slot not the top one? (I know its like that on most ATX boards, but still)Quote

Some larger air coolers can interfere with the top PCIe slot, which is why some motherboard makers like to avoid placing their PCIe 16x slot there.Quote

Most consumer orientated motherboards have the second PCI-e slot as the full X16 slot for GPU's (for reasons above). There are only one or two Z270 motherboards with the slots laid out like in many X99/X299 and X399 motherboards.

Also, must not be tempted by Coffee Lake. That Taichi boards looks nice.Quote

This actually explains a long time mystery for me. In my Alienware X99 board my Titan XM and XP both ran at X8. Then I got a MSI X99 and again, XP was running at X8. I was worried it was duff, but then I moved it down a slot (had to for water cooling) and sure enough X16.Quote

News to me. I will be looking over my current build to see if this is true for my current motherboard ( Asus Maximum Hero Z270 ).

Wonder how I missed that. LOL!!!!Quote
