In recent months we have taken a look at a number of Z97 boards, including Gigabytes exceptional Z97X- Gaming G1 WIFI-BK and their more affordable, mainstream Z97X-Gaming 5. Of course when it comes to motherboards there are many needs and budgets which require solutions and so as with their competition Gigabyte offer many, many versions of boards based on this chipset.
One of Gigabytes options for consumers looking to build a compact but feature packed system (especially those aiming to game) is the Z97N-Gaming 5. This Mini-ITX board has support for the latest i7 CPUs on socket 1150 as well as offering Wireless-ac, Killer NIC and enhanced audio. Today we have one for review.
