The Gaming 5 also includes a case sticker and door hanger, and its SATA cables are a more fanciful silver color rather than boring black.

On paper, the two boards are more similar than different. Physically, they have nearly identical layouts, though the Gaming 5 has an 8-pin auxiliary CPU power port and dual heatsink cooling connected via heatpipe while the WIFI settles for a 4-pin plug and exposed VRMs, despite both Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 Intel WLAN using the same 5-phase power regulation system. I will say however with the way some new mITX cases are trending towards, I think it might be nice to have a third 4-pin fan header to accommodate for a few more fans if need be.

Many RAM manufacturers are quite aware of this issue, so low profile heatspreaders are common. In addition, many air CPU cooler manufacturers are increasing the clearance by the heatsink or fan over the RAM slots. Hopefully, both of these will result in zero space issues.

The ATX pin power connector is placed on this side of the motherboard, which again is a relatively standard layout. The colors on the top of the plug visually show where each plug's positive and negative terminals should be plugged in, but the colors are also a bit distracting.

Even so, I like the colors, as it just makes one of the more annoying parts of building a computer a bit easier. Overall, it is still great to see all of the connectors on the right side, and it helps in cabling.

Considering the small size of the mITX form factor, Gigabyte has done a relatively good job for the ports we have looked at so far. This is a true PCIe x16 slot, with full sixteen lanes provided by Skylake processors.

Thankfully, this means you can put a heavy hitting graphics card into your baby board of a computer. This includes a USB 3. While the placement of these headers are not ideal for clean wiring, it is not terrible, considering the size constraints overall.

In addition, it is hard to get everything in its ideal spot, and sometimes sacrifices have to be made. Unfortunately, it is not easily removable, but thankfully clearing the CMOS is also quite easy to do without taking out the battery. The back panel offers quite a few external connectors.

There are niche uses for the port, including people who are still holding on to their IBM Model M keyboard. Next, there are the blue USB 3.

A total of three USB 3. Once again, we see no black USB 2.

In addition, DisplayPort supports daisy chaining of monitors, which is helpful if you are limited in terms of physical connections. Click to enlarge Compared to its cheaper sibling, the Gaming 5 is in a different league when it comes to aesthetics. You get a steel-plated PCI-E slot, better cooling thanks to a nickel-plated heat pipe connecting the PCH and power circuitry heatsinks - the latter being absent on the cheaper board and along with a 4-pin compared to an 8-pin CPU power connector, it's possible the cheaper board won't be as good an overclocker either despite the two boards sporting the same 5-phase power circuitry.
