This review has me feeling rather conflicted. On the one hand I really like the styling and build quality of Asus’ Strix range of motherboards, and on the other Intel have really violated the poodle on the Coffee Lake chipset launch as a whole.
Want to know what chip to drop in your board? Check out our pick of the best CPUs for gaming.
These H370 boards were meant to be the mainstream, affordable mobos for the 8th Gen CPUs, but with Z370 getting on a bit now you can find cheaper high-end boards than the sort of high-end H370 Asus are filling their Republic of Gamers range with. Of course, the gorgeous-looking Strix Z370-E Gaming is only £40 more than this lower-spec H370 version, but when you can pick up a Z370 board, which can easily outperform this Strix, for much less it becomes very difficult to recommend the slower board.
