NZXT Z370 N7 Motherboard Review



The NZXT N7 is their first attempt at a motherboard. With a crowded marketplace has it got enough to stand out from the pack?

Sounds to me like the purse made all the decisions for this one. Shame really the look of these is what will sell them but no enthusiast is going to be happy with it with such a bad Bios and the whole m.2 issue
lets hope they do a rev 2.0 with re-written BIOS

Seems like a missed opportunity and a money making exercise considering for the price how little it comes with considering you can get the hero for less

For the M.2 cooling if the owner was willing to bust out a dremel they could simply attach some white or black heatsinks to the NVME drive and then just mark and cut the cover so it goes over the heatsinks.

I agree but it's something that can be easily fixed if you have a dremel

If you need a Dremel to fix a motherboard, you bought the WRONG motherboard, LOL! In this market, where aesthetics are already WELL covered by Asus, Asrock, Gigabyte, etc, this board offers little to nothing for an enthusiast.
