NZXT Announces the Stealthy N7 Z390 Motherboard

NZXT N7 Z390 Motherboard Featured

NZXT has just released its brand new lineup of high end Z390 motherboards for the latest 9th Gen Intel processors dubbed the NZXT N7 Z390. These motherboards are available in either a matte black or matte white color scheme, each dramatically changing the overall color scheme inside the case once installed. The new Z390 chipset is Intel’s brand new replacement for the Z370 chipset that was released this time last year.

Out of the box, these motherboards feature all the latest modern components such as WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, RGB lighting controls, M.2 SSD, and Intel Optane Memory support. RGB lighting is provided by HUE 2 integrated lighting channels. As with most modern motherboards, the NZXT N7 motherboard features an integrated I/O shield for easy installation.

“Our goal with the newest N7 is to deliver everything you need to build a powerful gaming PC with ease,” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder and CEO. “By listening to the community’s feedback on the N7 Z370 launched earlier this year, we were able to add many new features to make PC building and gaming a more accessible and enjoyable experience. The N7 Z390 is the next step on this journey and we are excited for people looking to build extraordinary PCs with the N7.”

The new N7 motherboard provides everything gamers need right out of the box. Lighting effects are controlled through CAM software. This includes features from its HUE 2 and GRID+ digital controllers allowing intuitive control for three RGB LED lighting channels and eight PWM fan channels through CAM.

The look of the new NZXT motherboard is definitely unique. Its all-metal cover provides a clean design that blends seamlessly with your case. Additional PWM heatsink covers available separately in glossy blue, red, and purple.
