SuperMicro C7Z370-CG-IW Mini-ITX Motherboard Review

SuperMicro C7Z370-CG-IW

With an impeccable history of creating many of the most trusted and reliable motherboards in the world, we’ve been super excited to check out the C7Z370-CG-IW from SuperMicro. Forget crazy fins and aesthetics, tacked on RGB lighting, and funky graphics, because that’s not the SuperMicro way. Function over form, and reliability and round the clock performance are what matter here. If you want great gaming performance without all the gimmicks, SuperMicro wants your attention here.
