GIGABYTE Unleashes Their Itty-bitty Z370N WiFi Motherboard

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has released the new GIGABYTE Z370N WIFI motherboard based on the Intel Z370 chipset. The new motherboard incorporates powerful performance capabilities within a compact design to provide users with a versatile motherboard for building their ideal PCs.

The GIGABYTE Z370N WIFI motherboard is optimized to support 8th Gen. Intel Core Processors. For a mini-ITX form factor, this motherboard can truly maximize the power of the Intel Core i7-8700K processors by easily reaching overclocked frequencies of 5GHz and higher. The motherboard uses an Intersil Hybrid Digital VRM design to ensure that power is distributed effectively, enabling the GIGABYTE Z370N WIFI to perform at its highest standards. Additionally, over 1000 memory modules have been validated by GIGABYTE to ensure proper compability with support for XMP profiles up to a frequency of 4600MHz when overclocked.
RGB Fusion Technology adds an incredible amount of style and customizability to the Z370N WIFI motherboards. With support for up to 300 Digital 5V or 12V LED strips, the motherboard allows the user to individually address the color and brightness of each of the strips, bringing exquisite lighting configurations to life.

Versatility is a key aspect of the GIGABYTE Z370N WIFI motherboard. Its compact size allows for smaller, feature packed builds and can be used in a multitude of user configurations. The feature rich back panel furthers adds to the versatility of the motherboard by offering both Dual Intel GbE with cFossSpeed and Dual Band 802.11ac Intel Wireless connectivity. It also offers seven USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, one of which is an USB Type-C connector. Bifurcation support, a rare but highly valuable feature, is included on the motherboard and offers the ability to make the most out of the PCIe x16 slot. With the use of a riser card, the slot can be utilized as multiple slots to satisfy user's expansion requirements.

The Dual M.2 PCIe NVMe design enables fast storage solutions to be used in such a small form factor motherboard, with each slot providing up to 32 Gb/s of bandwidth for data transfer speeds. It brings RAID capability and the performance potential of two NVMe SSDs working in tandem to ensure that users' high demands for storage performance are fulfilled. Users can be assured that the motherboard's M.2 Thermal Guard can keep their storage devices cool and protected from thermal throttling.

From the vast amount of display outputs on the back of the GIGABYTE Z370N WIFI, users can enjoy pristine triple 4K Ultra HD displays. This motherboard comes with a DisplayPort which provides High Dynamic Range (HDR) video and HDMI 2.0a which provides both HDR video as well as support for the cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio, enabling users to savor the ultimate viewing experience. The GIGABYTE Z370N WIFI is sure to satisfy the entertainment needs of those seeking immersive three 4K monitor configurations.

Its a little hard being impressed by small boards after Asus' Z370-i STRIX

A very nice sized heatsink for SSDs a nice touch.

Except the SSD is sitting on top of the chipset and gets some extra heat from that...

Well, sadly, I just simply can NOT and will NOT buy this board...

Why you may ask....

because it doesn't have a stinking legacy, antiquated, fuggully, essentially worthless (to me at least) ps/2 port .....

:rolleyes: if you missed it, this was only sarcasism on my part...

Won't buy it either, no VGA port!

But do these new generation of chipsets run hot enough to cause trouble? Also there will be some airflow as long as user is using a low profile air cooler.

Actually, that's a legit reason I would never buy this board. Many modern keyboards offer full N-key rollover exclusively through PS/2. Those same keyboards happen to be some of the few that ship Cherry MX-green keyswitches...

Actually I was thinking the same thing. I still own an multimedia keyboard on PS2 port, and I am not even thinking of changing it due to a simple reason. USB keyboards cannot be used to power up a PC :)

Well, it'll add heat to the bottom of the SSD, it might not be much, but considering how sensitive a lot of NVMe drives are to temperature before they throttle... It could be an issue.

Asus has been doing similar solutions for SSD cooling on their ROG mini-ITX boards for quite a few generations now so if there were any major issues we would have heard it by now. But still I would love to see some tests testing the cooling efficiency of this m.2 cooling solution.
