The Gigabyte GA-Z270-HD3P Intel Z270 (Socket 1151) DDR4 ATX motherboard is very well equipped: With 2 PCIe 3.0 x16 (x16/x4), 2 USB 3.1 (1 Type A and 1Type C), 1 M. 2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) & 6 SATA 6G, 10 USB 3.0 + 4 USB 2.
Gigabyte Z270HD3P is an ATX motherboard that uses the Intel Z270 chipset for Intel 6a processors.(" Skylake") and the seventh
(" Kaby Lake") generations in the LGA 1151 socket. Series 200 chipsets, known as "Union Point", come with up to 24 PCIe Express 3.0 lanes. The Z270 allows CPU overclocking, which offers fully unlocked multipliers.

This black-themed board comes with two PCIe x16 slots of which one is connected to the chipset with 16 full lanes, while the other PCIe x16 slot is electrically connected via four data links. For I/O options and expansion cards, the board comes with two PCIe x1s as well as two classic PCI slots and supports AMD CrossFireX technology.
The motherboard provides DDR4 RAM support through 4 DIMM slots in ultra-fast dual-channel mode.
Memory banks occupy up to 64 GB of RAM and, depending on the installed processor, support memory at speeds of 2,133 MHz (with Skylake CPUs) or 2,400 MHz (with Kaby Lake CPUs). In addition, among the unique features of the Gigabyte Z270HD3P is the Fusion LED lighting.
In order to connect the fastest data storage devices, the motherboard comes with an M. 2 slot for NVMe M. 2 SSDs as well as six 6G SATA ports for hard drives and 3.5" or 2.5" SSDs (including RAIDs). M. 2 ports connect through four PCIe lines in standard 3.0 to the chipset and, in the case of M. 2 ports, connect through the PCIe ports.
The motherboard I/O panel offers a new type of USB port, USB Type C, which is particularly slim and easy to use. In addition to the Type C port, the motherboard also provides a USB 3.1 type A port compatible with previous versions. USB 3.1 ports, with a maximum throughput of 10 GBit/s, twice as fast as previous USB 3.0 ports! ..
If no graphics card is present, the GPU built into the Skylake or Kaby Lake CPU allows monitors to be installed and connected directly on the back of the motherboard via HDMI, DVI and VGA. Internally, the motherboard offers, among other functions, a TMP and COM port header, four 4pin ports for PWM fans, as well as XMP compatibility and a number of overclocking functions.
