ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-E Gaming Motherboard - Unboxing
The ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-E Gaming also comes in a standard cardboard package. The front features a black color scheme along with the ROG eye logo which hints at the RGB features on their motherboard.
The back side of the package lists down the specifications and special features of the motherboard such as USB 3.1 Gen2 front panel connector, Addressable header & Aura and has the full specs sheet too. There's also a 20% off coupon on CableMod cables inside the box so if anyone is interested, just comment below.
The front side also lists down support for Intel's 8th generation Core processors. There's also support for Intel Optane memory along with ASUS AURA Sync, NVIDIA SLI, AMD Crossfire / CFX technology (although AMD has abandoned the Crossfire name and uses mGPU instead nowadays) and a 3D Printing friendly design.

The ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-E Gaming gets one thing right in its first impression, it looks gorgeous. The ROG STRIX series may not be the high-end, fully loaded offerings that the original ROG lineup is known for but for their price, they do pack lots of goodies while looking great. There's lots to talk about this motherboard so let's get started.
