First statement before the competition starts, the new Gigabyte Z270X Gaming SOC will not be allowed for the march madness. Unfortuantely it is not available at shops at the competitions start (in europe not listed). In case something changes we will make an announcement, this thread is also open for questions but we already included the non released hardware not allowed rule from the first day of announcing the contest.

Good luck and have fun at the contest

Yes, Z170 is allowed, I see no restriction on this - but no unreleased hardware (LN2 boards or sadly the z270 gaming soc)

Z97 LN2 board allowed or not? Using Haswell is competitive disadvantage no matter the board's DIMM layout
