Well I sure hope they haven't used Foxconn. That would be signing your own death warrant.

It needs a seriously good bios, and they are up against behemoths like Asus.

I wish them all the best.

If it ends up being good then I can see the likes of Corsair entering the market, They already have SSD's and memory, Wouldn't really be that much of a stretch.

If Corsair were to enter the market, they would just get MSI to make the board with Corsair trimmings. They already work together with the MSI Sea Hawk and Corsair's full system builds.

Guys, don't get too excited. Firstly there is no way they are making scratchers. No way. You need masses of experience, kinda like the dude at Asus who went on to create Asrock.

This board is highly likely to be coming from a board maker. Maybe MSI, maybe some one else but it's not going to be a ground up NZXT board. Not unless they have bought an entire operation.

As Mark said, MSI are now making boards for Corsair. As they are for Alienware (ever since Dell took over) and I *think* HP Omen too.

If they pick Foxconn? they are going to be in the doodoo. They couldn't write a decent bios if their lives depended on it.

Apparently they're pricing this at $300. Only 4 SATA ports, no Type C, no 3.1 header and who knows what the BIOS will even be like. You'd have to be a hardcore NZXT fan to buy this imo.

Yup. Why on earth would you risk it when an Asus can be had cheaper?

Since this is now official I think all discussion should be moved to the new thread.

Board is by ECS.
For the price it is worthless. NO USB type C or Gen 2
Limited sata ports and no high speed ram. 3866 max.

$300 for 9 fan ports and the use of their software.
No even compatible with their cases that has USB type c on it.
