Very nice vid as always. You mentioned a build with this board but I can’t find it in your upload section. Maybe you haven’t or I’m just missing it. If you did make a video, could you please leave a link for me so I can watch it? Meany regards from The Netherlands

CDubs HasIt says:

A non k, kaby lake chip will certainly work in this board will it not? Say I have a regular 7700 and I just like this board for the m.2 and SLI… it would still run it at the locked speed right? AND if I wanted to upgrade to a k chip in the future when the price comes down I’m in good shape because I already have the board..I’m not wrong am I?

Mark Kim says:

Is there bluetooth on this board?

Betelgeuse Romanèe-Conti says:

Can I use different cards for sli? Like if I want to sli a 1070 do I need to use another gtx 1070?
Or can I use like a gtx 1070 and a gtx 1060/1050ti?
And Btw, does this motherboard have the ethernet driver already installed?
If now, what should I do to get drivers?

Scorpio Gamer says:

Great review. This is the board I bought for my very first pc build. I can’t wait. Amazon had it for like 130 something. My question is I need an optical out port. I can just put in a sound card correct that has one?

EX Muslim Mol7ed says:

Mr Tech deals, Loved this video and learned so much, quick question though I have a gtx1080 zotac amp extreme a very thick and heavy card, I want to SLI it with another of the same , is this motherboard spacious enough I don’t want the two cards to choke eachother you know ? and another one is it possible to SLI with a different sized gtx1080 ? like a founder edition or smaller to the first big card ?
