After what feels like an age, we’re finally getting the new Intel Coffee Lake mainstream chipsets, along with a couple of new mainstream Coffee Lake CPUs. Gigabyte’s H370 Aorus Gaming 3 is our first taste of the new affordable motherboard range, so how does it fare? Not bad, but the chipset suffers by being late to the party.
A good motherboard is nothing without one of the best CPUs for gaming.
The new H370 has been designed as the mainstream chipset to offer PC users access to the Coffee Lake processors without having to spend out on a high-end Z370 motherboard with a host of features they’ll never use. It’s the traditional Intel way; have the Z-series at the top, followed by a slightly cut-down H-series, and the finish with the lower-spec B-series.
