Onboard RAID: The Gigabyte GA-Z270N-WIFI supports Intel Rapid Storage Technology which provides the following RAID levels via the Intel Z270 Express Chipset RAID 0 - data striping; RAID 1 - data mirroring; RAID 0+1 (or RAID 10) - data striping and mirroring; RAID 5 - distributed parity.
Suitable Processors: The Gigabyte GA-Z270N-WIFI board supports 7th and 6th Gen Intel (Kaby Lake and Skylake) processors. 7th Gen processors will hardware encode/decode VP9 and HEVC 10b graphics. The Gigabyte GA-Z270N-WIFI is not provided with a processor. Suitable processors are available here or in the 'you may also require' section to the left.
Suitable Cases: All our Mini-ITX chassis with at least a 120W power supply, and an appropriate low profile heatsink if necessary. If using a larger than 65W TDP processor, a larger power supply than 120W may be required.
1U Case compatibility: To use this board in a 1U case please use the Dynatron K2 1U Side blower heatsink and ideally up to a 65W TDP CPU.
picoPSU compatibility: This board is powered by a 24pin ATX connector and 8pin 12V connector. Only 20pins and 4pins need to be connected unless a high TDP PCI-E card is also in use.
Typical M350 or M5X builds: Use the picoPSU-90 with a 35W TDP processor; and the picoPSU-120 and 12V P4 connector or picoPSU-150/160-XT with a 47W or 65W TDP processor. We do not recommend using a 120W picoPSU with a Kaby Lake 'K' processor at this stage. Some 35W TDP processors come with a low profile heatsink. Other sizes will require the Akasa 7106HP or K25 heatsink.
Multiple Screens: This board Supports up to 3 displays simultaneously via DVI-D and 2x HDMI.
Windows 7 Support: Windows 7 is supported on this motherboard only in combination with a Skylake (6th Gen) Intel processor. Windows USB installation will require a modified installer (instructions provided).
Downloads: BIOS, Documentation and Drivers.
