The skeleton of any PC build is the humble motherboard. A significant but overlooked part in the build, but NZXT puts it out there as a centerpiece. This amazing design has entered round 2 in the fight for making PC building fun and exciting. The new NZXT N7 Motherboard is built for the new Intel Z390 chipset, and comes with built-in wireless connectivity, a digital fan controller and integrated RGB lighting channels. And of course, supports all the latest Intel® 8th/9th Generation Core™ i9, Core™ i7, Core™ i5, and Core™ i3 processors.
The NZXT N7 provides slots and connectors for everything you’d expect — CPU fans, AIO pump, M.2 Storage, loads of USB ports, Wireless-AC 9560, Bluetooth 5V, and of course all of the NZXT Hue 2 lighting channels you need. It’s also Intel® Optane™ Memory Ready and support DDR4 memory speeds up to up to 3866+ MHz using Intel’s XMP 2.0 profiles. NZXT’s CAM software is also well integrated, and provides comprehensive control of RGB lighting, cooling, and performance/overclocking.
Back is the familiar motherboard shielding which has become prevalent in many higher end motherboards today. A trend that was started by ASUS and their Sabertooth series of motherboards many moons ago with their TUF Armor. It is a very welcome addition that adds protection from accidents that can happen while building, and it just gives the board a great finished look. Heatsink covers are also available in optional glossy blue, red and purple for even more customization.
