ASUS ROG has just released two new motherboards from their Strix line, ROG Strix H270I Gaming and ROG Strix B250I Gaming. Both carry mini-ITX Strix size with H270 and B250 chipset.
Physically the appearance of these two models is almost exactly the same, the difference is only found in some minor components and its chipset.

Like most of today’s ‘gaming’ equipment, these two motherboards come with RGB lighting. With ASUS RGB Aura Sync, you can also manage to have all the other components in your computer come out the same color (or vary if you like your computer spewing rainbow colors).

Regardless of your preference for RGB lighting in computers, the ASUS ROG Mini-itx Strix is a relatively benign model in its use. With a light line on one side only, this motherboard does not look tacky or exaggerated despite the colorful rainbow.
ROG Strix H270I comes with a price of $ 120 while ROG Strix B250I priced at $ 110. Currently I have not been able to find both in any store in Indonesia so it is not clear the price when entered in Rupiah. Seeing that the price of ASUS components is often more expensive than the price of its release in the United States, chances are it will also happen with both of these motherboards.
