NZXT N7 Z790 Motherboard Review

NZXT are still a relatively new player in the world of motherboards, having launched their Z370 motherboard at CES back in 2018. They’ve had a few issues, they’ve even changed manufacturers, and by sticking to it, they’re now extremely competitive in the market. However, one of the biggest selling features of their motherboards has to be the aesthetics. NZXT have a strong brand identity, and that can be seen in everything they do, from headphones to power supplies, cases to motherboards, it is all designed to look sleek, clean, stylish and unmistakably like an NZXT product.

NZXT N7 Z790 Motherboard

The NZXT N7 Z790 sticks to the now classic NZXT motherboard aesthetic, with a few minor tweaks and changes to keep it relevant. However, when it comes to the hardware, it all seems pretty much up to date, with a 16+1+2 DrMOS design that should be more than enough for the latest 12th or 13th Gen CPUs to overclock or hit their boost clocks. Large heatsinks and plentiful motherboard armour should also provide ample cooling and protection for the power delivery hardware, and the three M.2 mounts. Plus, there are plenty of fan and RGB headers with built-in CAM support, so taking control of your system should be a breeze.


  • 16+1+2 DrMOS Power Phase Design with 2oz Copper PCB
  • Full cover in black or white with an integrated heat spreader for the top-most M.2 slot
  • Digital RGB lighting control through CAM for numerous preset and custom modes
