NEW MOBO PLAYER IN TOWN
NZXT OPENS WITH STYLISH NEW BOARD
BESTKNOWNas a supplier of cases, power supplies, cooling kits, and such, NZXT has made the jump to motherboards, with the release of its N7 Z370. And a good-looking thing it is, too. The all-metal shroud comes in black or white, and gives it a cool, sleek look. The chipset and VRM heatsink covers can be had in blue, red, or purple for $15 more. The workings are based around a Z370 chipset and an LGA 1151 socket. It has an integrated RGB lighting controller, and is studded with headers to connect your own light show. It’s not massively cheap, though; it started out at $299, but dropped to $249 after reviews praised its looks but thought it too expensive. It’s an impressive first offering—we hope to see more of NZXT’s uniquely stylish boards.
