    This motherboard will generally be a hit for most people wanting a mini-itx system. I haven't found myself using the Bluetooth, however I imagine those with peripherals (eg. PS4 gaming controller) that use Bluetooth will find more use for it.

    The inbuilt WiFi, whilst I would not recommend using it over an Ethernet connection, is great for when someone may be transporting the system around to another persons house. I find it almost a necessary item for mini-itx builds as its pairing with one gives meaning as to why they are so loved for being portable rigs.

    The UEFI is also quite easy to navigate. The inbuilt settings for overclocking a 6600k or 6700k to a maximum of 4.4Ghz and 4.6Ghz respectively is a great selling point for those not willing to adjust voltage settings themselves.

    My only issue is that Speed Fan software is not compatible with this brand of motherboard which can be an issue when running multiple pwm fans.

    One of the most compatible hackintosh builds around I seem to hear. It has great IO with Bluetooth, wifi, dual gigabit Ethernet and USB-C. Of course one of the most important points to me is it includes a foam IO shield, preventing me from destroying my fingers any more ;) I have a habit of cutting myself on those pesky metal ones!

    Dual Intel WiFi RJ45 ports, 1 USB 3.0 Type-C port, 4 USB Type-A AC wireless + Bluetooth 4.2, 6 SATA 6 GB/s connectors, 2 SATA Express, DDR4 up to 3200 MHz, M.2 80mm slot, well designed BIOS interface, decent motherboard software, and ability to overclock all at a decent price point. Only downsides are no USB 3.1 and the SATA Express ports sitting 90 degrees to the motherboard may be difficult to connect to after securing the motherboard in some cases. Bargain price, purchased used from $108.16 from an eBay seller who only briefly used the motherboard for testing purposes.

    Great board with amazing features. Bluetooth allows me to connect my PS4 controller wireless. I love the sata cable connections and how they are angled which is nice. This board has a lot of features for an amazing price point.

    The Gigabyte GA-Z170N-WIFI motherboard provided the current Z170 chipset and built-in WIFI and Bluetooth, which was a welcome bonus. Good I/O connectivity as well. Plenty of SATA ports. The USB3 header is awkwardly in the middle of the board. Only 1 case fan header.

    At first I was planning to buy the same motherboard just with H170 chipset. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) in my country H170 variant was just ~10€ cheaper, so there was no point in buying it. All the features I wanted: couple of SATA3, M.2 slot on the back (for now I am not gonna use it), although only one 4-pin CPU power connector, not gonna extremely overclock in HTPC case anyways...

    Very easy to assemble onto, lots of ports, things are in sensible arrangement.

    Motherboard's SATA connections could've done with facing upwards, rather than outwards, had to buy angled SATA cables as the space between motherboard and PSU was really tight!!

    Tons of features this is a hard board to pass up. There is only one other board which has similar features and it's made by gigabyte. Trying to find a itx board which has usb type c, wireless, bluetooh, and m.2 all in one package is petty hard.
