ASUS Sabertooth Z170 S Review

Test Setup

As well as our regular test setup, the Z170 S is inspiring as to the type of system it would be perfect it, as you can see from our build here. The ability to have a white motherboard as well as white components really looks sharp.

Overclocking

Whilst the Maximus VIII Extreme might have taken our Core i7-6700K to the heights of 4.92GHz, the Z170 S matches up to every other Z170 motherboard we've tested here at OC3D with a 4.8GHz clock speed. More than enough for even the most power hungry user.

I like this and I think it's different enough to be a proper Sabertooth.

I remember when the first Saber launched (X58) and I remember it was very reasonably priced at the time (around £140 IIRC). Then all of a sudden Asus make the Sabertooth one of their top of the range boards and prices rocket.

So it's nice to see it back in affordable territory and if I were doing a white build this would be my choice.Quote

Digital camo isn't really that over the top so still looks good. I wonder if they'll offer the thermal armor as an upgrade kit down the track like they did with the Gryphon?Quote

I don't understand why ASUS kept the brown when they were clearly going for a Black & White camo motherboard, everything that is brown should have been changed to black.

When i'm looking at this motherboard my OCD is going crazy,Quote
