Asus ROG Strix B360-F Gaming
Intel has introduced the H370 and B360 motherboard chipsets, finally providing a cheaper alternative to Z370. The new chips both lose overclocking but H370 is otherwise basically the same. Meanwhile, the B360 also drops to 12 PCIe lanes so this won’t be a board for top-end systems.
This Asus B360-F Gaming example, then, is £70 cheaper than its Z370 counterpart but still has a premium look and feel, plenty of I/O and all the fan control and system monitoring extras you’d expect. Overall, I’d probably plump for the H370 version for just £20 more.
