3 PCI slots OMG - And 8700 K is supported!!!-Not sure how well equipped the board is to handle 8700 K though - Anyhow, it's an Intel board and has 3 PCI slots - It's worth a mention.

It can handle it, so can the Chipset.
None of us use everything full featured chipsets offer for Audio
I have an H97 serverboard and can’t even use everything on offer.
Check out the PCB, you’ll notice less gunk shorter trace lines.

Sometimes less is more..

Sorry for the typo - It is H310 chipset for Coffee Lake processors - 2666 Mhz RAM is supported but needs i7/i5 CPU's - Which is 8700 K, 8700, 8600 K, 8600, 8500, 8400 - i5 or i7.

There are 14 HSIO - High speed in and out - With 6 PCI-e lanes to the chipset - Which is less than the 24 on offer with Z370 - Yes, I can see sometimes less is more.

Just so others are not so confused possibly, the chipsets from best to worst are as follows, Z370, H370, B360 & H310. So H310 is the bottom of the pile but if someone wants to connect 1,2 or 3 PCI cards then the H310 will be the best all of a sudden :) -epsecially if they NEED a board with 3 PCI slots. - (if it works) :)

I posted a link on here for others to read regarding PCI slots on motherboards as there is still interest.

This H310 socket does not support M.2 or USB-c but does have USB 3.1 GEN 1

Here is an article for anyone interested -

It's a brand new board and maybe not yet on sale but is available for pre-order.

I've also ordered a Gigabyte H170 D3HP (3 pci slots)-from Amazon Germany-They have some more remaining. Only over clocking is missing from H170 chipset compared to Z170 which isn't much to miss. All the other connectivity is there, M.2, USB-c, USB 3.1 with ultra durable components.
