We've updated a lot of our hardware to match recent testing with other platforms since we looked at Intel's mainstream Kaby Lake CPUs earlier this year. We now use a GeForce GTX 1080 as our test GPU along with 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RGB 3,000MHz RAM and a Fractal Design Celcius 24 AIO liquid cooler.
Gigabit Wi-Fi, new 300-series chipsets, and more.
Five new SKUs and a new VR-ready NUC announced.
Can MSI topple Gigabyte's excellent Z370N-WiFi in the mini-ITX stakes with the latest incarnation of its dinky Pro Carbon AC board
Gigabyte has the second cheapest Z370 mini-ITX board, but the Z370N-WiFi doesn't skimp on features.
MSI's £180 Gaming Pro Carbon board has been popular in previous guises, but how well does it compete on Z370 with Coffee Lake?
It might not have Wi-Fi, but Gigabyte's Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 has pretty much everything else as well as a gorgeous lighting display.
Asus' latest ROG Strix board offers dual M.2 ports, a large M.2 heatsink, RGB lighting, and Wi-Fi.
The final big CPU launch of the year sees Intel aiming at AMD in the mid-range to give Ryzen a bloody nose, with the Core i7-8700K seeing a 50 percent core boost compared to the Core i7-7700K for not a lot more cash.
