An exciting new player is planning to enter the gaming motherboard market! Super Micro already had some gaming motherboards but now the server motherboard maker is planning to target gamers in a grander way. The firm showed off an upcoming lineup at CES 2016, it included Z170 based motherboards in Micro-ATX and ATX form factors.

Super Micro is known for making some of the most reliable workstation and datacenter motherboards, and the company promises the gaming lineup will be backed by their strict validation process.
Supermicro will have a new Z170OCE overclocking friendly board in a green motif, as well as a micro-ATX H170 variant that'll carry on the red colors of it's big brother, the Core Gaming Z170. The new Z170OCE will have 6 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 3.1 and a Type-C port on the rear. It also has 6 SATA 3.0 ports and a PCIe x4 enabled M.2 slot just waiting for that NVMe enabled Kingston Hyper X Predator shown off at CES.
