Just out of curiosity, what are the "more advanced cooling features" that this version is missing?

I've compared the two and they both have quality parts and have Thermal Radar 2. The Z170 S also has TUF ICe.

The only differences I could find was, because the Mark 1 is covered in armor, it needed two silly loud fans and has two thermistors.

Are these the 'advanced' features?

While having options is always nice but adding features that disable or lower the performance of each other just so you can have a longer list of features is questionable for a board that should only be about reliability and stability.

I think downsizing the third PCI-e 16x slot so it matches what it can really support (4x) and dropping the interfering SATA port would have been a better solution. Especially considering there are quite a few Z170 boards that cater for the enthusiasts who want 3 or 4 video cards in their system.

When I read the title of this article the first thought that ran through my mind was "Why would Jonathan Winters be humping my PC? He never did any kind of edgy comdey routine back in the day." After laughing a few seconds I pointed it out to a few of my older friends. They all had the same thoughts and laughs about the title. You might want to stick another title on the article.

I'd love to have a USA manufactured motherboard option to choose from - it's a shame non of these high end electronics are manufactured in the USA.

How can they have a winter themed motherboard and not go full Game Of Thrones man? :lol:

Although what's the pricing on this thing? Because I'm betting not cheap, though it would look pretty sweet in my H440.
