Los Angeles, CA – October 8th, 2018 – NZXT today announces the N7 Z390, its newest motherboard designed around Intel’s Z390 chipset and supporting the latest Intel 9th Gen CPUs. With the new N7 everything you need to build a stunning and powerful gaming PC is available right out-of-the-box.

All the essentials are included, along with built-in wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, digital fan control, and HUE 2 integrated RGB lighting channels. Get the N7 into your build even faster with an integrated rear I/O shield. The N7’s signature all-metal motherboard cover returns to perfectly match the color and finish of your case, creating a visually seamless backdrop for your components. Additionally, NZXT’s CAM software gives you full control over your system’s lighting, cooling, and performance straight from your desktop.

“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.”

BUILDING THAT’S ENJOYABLE FOR EVERYONE

Gone are the days of frustration and compromises.

The N7’s layout streamlines installation with an integrated rear I/O shield and optimally placed headers for easier setup.

A QUIETER SYSTEM

Our unique Adaptive Noise Reduction technology 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.
