All of the ASUS AURA motherboards understand the importance of a neutral colour palette to allow us greater freedom in picking whichever colour we desire. After all, if the PCB is blue and the plastics green it limits your options greatly. By keeping everything varying shades of grey it frees us up to explore our creative side. Our creative side being something that the Z170 Pro Gaming is very keen to exploit.
We could spend some time extolling the virtues of the carefully arranged power section surrounding the CPU socket, or explaining how beneficial the ASUS OC Socket is when it comes to squeaking out higher overclocks and lower voltages, but we know you've all seen the custom printed cover and are thinking how cool it looks and wondering where you get your own. So really, at this point, we could be writing in French and you wouldn't notice. Ce monsieur va tout payer. Mon aéroglisseur est plein d'anguilles.
It isn't only the USB headers at the base of the Z170 Pro Gaming which can be customised either. ASUS have provided templates and opportunities for you to customise almost every inch of the motherboard to your own personal tastes. Surprisingly, given the leading edge use of 3D printing, the Pro Gaming AURA comes equipped with a VGA output alongside all the more modern options. Surely there can't by anyone left with a CRT monitor by now?
