From Hardware BBQ:

Many Z370 users may not like it. But thanks to Intel, CNVi and native USB 3.1 Gen 2 support even on its B360 chipset makes this motherboard very tempting. It even provides a CNVi M.2 module Intel 9560 WiFi with Wave2, BT 5.0 and MU-MIMO module to provide a complete package. An Intel B360 chipset would be a good choice to pick up over the H370 in some cases because newer implements even on lower budget chipset would have some price change. Many H370 chipset motherboards would cost the same as Z370 base models. Intel B360 gives full 1x PCIe x16 3.0 bandwidth support fulfilling the needs of most gamers. It has support for six SATA ports and native USB 3.1 Gen 2 and CNVi, fulfilling the needs of most users. If for any reason you plan to buy a Coffee Lake platform on a mid-end budget, the AORUS B360 Gaming 3 WIFI and a locked Core i5 CPU looks mighty tempting combination.
