Easily Build a Quiet and Gorgeous System with NZXT's N7 Z370 Motherboard

NZXT today announces the N7 Z370, its first motherboard. Built around Intel's Z370 chipset, the N7 delivers everything you need to build a powerful, gorgeous gaming PC right out-of-the-box. All the essentials are included, along with a built-in digital fan controller and integrated RGB lighting channels. The all-metal motherboard cover perfectly matches the color and finish of your case, creating a visually seamless backdrop for your components. Using NZXT's CAM software, you have full control over your system's lighting, cooling, and performance.

"Leveraging our years of experience as professional PC builders, we've designed the N7 motherboard with a completely new approach. In the face of increasing complexity in the PC gaming market, we want to make building easier and more enjoyable, with the N7 as a cornerstone for this new experience. Everything you need--from easy layout and obvious connections to digital fan control and RGB lighting--is included. We've also designed a completely unique motherboard cover so it's both beautiful and powerful. You can't build a quieter, better-looking system as easily as you can with our new N7 motherboard." says Johnny Hou, NZXT's founder, and CEO.

Smart controls
Everything you need is ready out of the box and elegantly controlled through CAM software. The N7 includes key features from our HUE+ and GRID+ digital controllers allowing intuitive control for two RGB lighting channels and nine fan channels through CAM.

Stunning craftsmanship
Build a PC gaming system that is truly yours. The N7's unique all-metal cover provides a clean design that blends seamlessly with your case. For additional personalization, replacement heatsink covers are available separately in finishes that match our most popular case color ways, including matte white, matte black, glossy blue, glossy red, or glossy purple.

Building that's enjoyable for everyone
Gone are the days of frustration and compromises. We made each port discrete, utilizing all PCI express lanes available from the CPU and chipset so everything works as intended. The layout of the N7 streamlines installation with optimally placed headers for easier setup and upgradability. Supporting up to two graphics cards and both NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX technology, the N7 provides uncompromising performance for your gaming PC.

A quieter system
Our unique Adaptive Noise Reduction uses an onboard noise sensor to measure and learn the specifics of your system to find the ideal balance between fan speed and cooling. With up to a 40% reduction in fan noise level, you won't need to waste time designing custom fan curves. Leveraging machine learning to improve its results, this will ensure your fan settings are always optimal, even if you change hardware.

  • Windows 10 operating system.
  • Internet connection is needed to download CAM.
  • Some CAM features require Internet access, a valid email address and acceptance of our current Terms of Service.

So when you have to replace the CR2032 battery, you have to take apart your entire system... very handy indeed!

Hard to tell if this is a case or a board. I can see how this board would be appealing. However, I say: Strip off the covers, I wanna those circuits!

If they thought it through, the battery will be accessible under the second M.2 cover. If it is, and if that cover is removable, then you will only have to worry if you have that second PCI x16 slot populated.
So we will see.

It's not, there are naked photos of the board, it's right next to the PCI-E 4x slot.

The white one looks quite nice and I'm glad it's metal instead of plastic. But as everyone else is mentioning, I'm not sure if that's worth a premium unless you're showcasing builds.

If you take into account that it includes Hue + (With 2 addressable rgb strips included) and Grid+ V3 systems intragrated into the board it's sounds like a good deal.

$299.99 Bord MSRP
Minus
$59.99 Hue+
$49.99 Grid+ V3
Equals
$190.01
