EVGA Z170 Classified K Motherboard Review

When EVGA first announced their Z170 motherboards they had the Z170 Classified at the super high-end and the Z170 FTW filling out the mainstream. Since there was quite a large gap between those two boards, EVGA recently announced the Classified K, which will sit in the middle of the two. This motherboard has many of the great features you would expect from a Z170 motherboard like 2-way SLI support, dual M.2 slots, SATA Express, USB 3.1, and isolated audio components. EVGA has also added Killer E2400 gaming networking, their own 6-layer PCB, on board power, reset, and clear CMOS buttons and much more. This should be the perfect motherboard for someone who does not need all of the features that the Z170 Classified has, but wants something a little more powerful and feature-rich than the Z170 FTW board. Let’s jump in and take a look at what the Z170 Classified K is all about!
