now!” “There we go.” “The chicken nuggets, man…” “CHICKEN! CHICKEN NUGGETS!!” The foundation of every great computer is
the motherboard, and because Project Assassin requires an ITX motherboard, I decided to
go with the ROG STRIX Z370-I Gaming motherboard by Asus. In the box you will find:
The external WiFi antenna, SATA cables,
A very nice rear IO shield with the ROG logo, A tool to help you install the CPU properly,
M.2 screws and accessories, The manual,
A DVD rom for some reason, Lots of cable ties,
An LED header cable, And Republic of Gamers stickers. The ROG STRIX Z370-I Gaming motherboard is
designed to work with 8th generation Coffee Lake Intel CPU’s, and has all the necessary
hardware and IO to meet the needs of the most demanding gamers. On the rear of the board, starting from the
top left, we have a USB 3.1 A port, directly above a type C port. Both are listed as Gen 1, however, which seems
like an odd move given the availability of the C port. Next we have 4 USB 2.0 ports for your standard
peripherals. To the right of that, there’s one Display
Port above an HDMI port. The revision of Display Port is not listed,
but the HDMI port is listed as 1.4b. However, because this is a gaming rig, receiving
a discrete GPU, these ports will not be used anyway. We also have a gigabit port above two more
USB 3.1 A ports, followed by the antenna connections for 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 4.2. And last, but not least, the standard audio
connections. Looking at the board itself, we see the standard
24-pin connector, The RGB header,
The front panel connector, Four SATA 3.0 ports, and a USB 3.1 Gen 1 header. The board also has a USB 2.0 header; 2 fan
headers plus 1 AIO header; a USB 3.1 Gen 2 header, as far as I know, the only one on
the board; and of course the 8-pin CPU power connection. The board also has two very important m.2
slots, with support for NVMe. With all of that out of the way, it’s time
to add the board components. If you have any questions or concerns, leave
them in the comments below, and I will try to answer them as quickly as possible. I hope to see you in Episode 4 of THE Project
Assassin build! My name is Elemino, and this is Tech-Know
Scope! Tech-Know Scope is a TwistedCurve production!

  1. Bought this mobo and what a disappointment! RGB software straight out of the 90'… Eats cpu power, crashes and very limited in function, I uninstalled mine.
    Sound distorts when seeing videos and doing other stuff at the same time.
    Last asus product I buy!

  2. Hi , thanks for this video , I have same motherboard I have issue with rear ssd , did you try the ssd slot in the bottom because I use both of them and the one in the top near cpu with shield work with my both SSDs that I have

  3. Ok so you cleaned the cpu with alchohol (yes that is how those of us who created this language spell it), and then you neglected to apply thermal paste? Is this Verge levels of incompetence or did you just not record that bit?
