How about the missing Dual Channel support for DDR4? It is not mentioned anywhere, but I'd like to know whether the lower price justifies the performance loss (if any) or not.
 
Missing dual channel support? The H170 fully supports dual channel RAM, usually DDR4, such as on these two examples. In my first roundup, there was one board that used DDR3, and another that could use either DDR3 OR DDR4 (not both), which meant only two sticks. The two boards in this article support up to four sticks of DDR4; two or four will run in dual-channel mode.

Thank you for your answer! I knew it should be like that, but they did not mention Dual Channel support on the manufacturer's page, but did so in case of the H170 based Pro4/Hyper. This got me confused since nobody is going to omit a potential "feature", and they always mention this. Anyway, thx again for making this clear

Splendid
For the people usually looking at this chipset, it's not. However, many of the motherboards we review do support OCing, and we have a lot of other users and readers on this site that specifically look for that, so it's not a problem to list that as a "con" when comparing these boards to all the others.

That's like knocking a Ford Focus because it doesn't have a v8 option, but whatever.
