Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 Review

Introduction

If a motherboard, or indeed any product, can be defined solely by its looks then the Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 might be the belle of the ball. It has certainly come dressed in its finest party frock.

We've already given you a full rundown of the many features that are included with this flagship Gigabyte product, and you can revisit those here. We certainly recommend that you do as the Gaming 7 is like all the modern flagship motherboards in that it is absolutely bristling with features of interest to both the enthusiasts and the gamers.

Whether you want the biggest overclocking results, or simply the finest case light disco, let us put the Aorus Gaming 7 to the test and find out whether it is Rachel Riley or merely a trophy wife.

Technical Specifications

Should you be averse to reading our preview, you fools, then here is a quick overview of everything the latest model in the burgeoning Gigabyte Aorus arsenal has to offer. As you can see it looks the absolute business with a combination of brushed blacks accentuated by the silver highlights on the heatsinks and de rigueur steel armour protecting your DIMM and PCI Express slots. With dual LAN, gold plating, high end audio, USB 3.1, RGB LEDs everywhere you look and even swappable overlays the Gaming 7 brings many tools to the party. Of all the manufacturers Gigabyte are the ones who have really taken lighting to the next level and the support for 300 (count em) Digital LEDs is something that we cannot wait to see in action once the modders get their hands on it.

Until then, let's run some benchmarks.

Can you equalize the uncore clock with the MSI/ASUS boards and see if the performance discrepancy is still there?Quote

Curious as to if you got control of the lighting capabilities ?

Have had trouble with the Aorus software and ended up removing the lot except for the Aorus Graphic Engine. I need that to create a fan profile for my Aorus 1080ti . Sad thing is you cant get the card and the mobo to be friends using that software.Quote

X Hero:
5Ghz @1.31V

All motherboards clock CPU's differently that is why Tom is always saying don't copy my results try and test your own and CPU's can also clock differently too and if it's better than the Hero then it's better than the Hero.Quote
