What motherboard from the Asus z170 chipset line offers the most set of features? I did some research and it looks like the z170-a is the one but I could be wrong. I'd like to have a motherboard that offers the most features even if I won't necessarily need them. I just like to have the most possible options.

Here are a few things I would hope to include but don't let that affect your answer:

  • USB 3.1, type a and c
  • Possibility to do SLI in the future

Some things that I plan to do with the system are:

  • Everyday usage
  • Gaming
  • Web development and running WAMP server for development
  • Media server using Plex
  • Photoshop

I already plan on buying a GTX 1070 graphics card so I can play games on the highest graphics settings possible.

  • This is quite broad of a request. What are you looking for in the board? What will you be using the system for? – NZKshatriya Nov 30 '16 at 23:06
  • @NZKshatriya I added some info about what I plan to do with the system. I hope they can make my request more answerable. Thanks. – Cave Johnson Nov 30 '16 at 23:13

I would probably go with this one: ASUS Z170-E

These points jump out, at least at me:

DDR4 memory overclocked to 3466MHz(max compatible speed) Onboard USB 3.1 Gen 2 for 10Gbit/s data transfer speeds Lightning-fast M.2 with PCIe 3.0 x4 interface
