Seeing a U.2 port on a non-high-end motherboard makes me happy. Seeing an mITX board with its M.2 slot in the logical place - the reverse - makes me happier still.

If it was available at my place, I'd give it chance, but I doubt it be fair.

Been using the the Z170GT7 for a while now. It's quite decent. BIOS is clean and organized though most of the changeable options lacks proper description so I had to guess what it does. Biggest bummer about it is that they claimed you can oc a non-k. Their site says so. Emailed them and they said it's possible but on selected non-k only? Didn't now all non-k's are not alike. Looked at every nook and cranny in the bios and no luck still. What's depressing is that I've looked everywhere for info, user discussions etc on the new biostar boards and I couldn't find any. So I'm pretty much left in the dark.

Not bad at all. Looks a lot beefier than my MSI B150i Gaming Pro AC.

you need to have the right BIOS for non-K OC to work.

I don't think there is one.
Looked up GT7 r 5.0 specs and it does not mention Biostar's HyperOC feature (non-K overclocking).

The only thing I found is this
HyperOC Technology is enabled via BIOS update on BIOSTAR Z170 motherboards.

COMPATIBLE MOTHERBOARDS

GAMING Z170X
GAMING Z170T
GAMING Z170W
HI-FI Z170Z5
