SuperMicro C9Z390-CG-IW Z390 Motherboard Review

SuperMicro C9Z390-CG-IW

The Z390 launch is going off in style, with us having quite a few boards for this launch, including two from Super Micro. However, this one is pretty special, as it’s the only board we have for review that isn’t ATX! Even better, it’s mini-ITX, making it attractive for those seeking to build more compact systems around the Z390 platform. With support for both 8th and 9th Gen Intel CPUs, this may prove to be a very popular motherboard. Of course, we’ll be testing ours with the new flagship Intel Core i9-9900K, which is sure to put the motherboard through its paces better than any other.
