Did you extract it ? Here is link to 7zip, download the .exe file / install it / right click on x27a file and under 7zip chose extract/extract here

They often come up on eBay used:

$220 USD + shipping is not bad, but you will have to pay for customs and the Global Shipping fees.


You can buy the Z170 Gaming G1 but not the SOC Force:

If you find one in the US that doesn't ship to Canada, you could use Kinek to have it delivered to a US mailbox then pick it up. You'd have to pay 13% though in HST and near Ottawa my Kinek charges $5 USD per package.


Alternatively, the Z270X Gaming 9 is very similar. Both the Z270X Gaming 9 and Z170X Gaming G1 are similar. They both have the same VRM and PLX PEX 8747. Only difference is that they have better audio, Killer LAN, and a few more gamer oriented features.
