N7 Z370 Motherboard Key Features

  • CAM Powered RGB Lighting

The N7 comes with 2 built-in RGB headers. One is located above the RAM slots and the other is located above the 24 pin power. Each RGB header is capable of supporting either 5 NZXT Aer RGB fans or 4 NZXT HUE+ LED strips. These headers will allow you to power the same amount of RGB hardware that you can with our HUE+ using our CAM software.

  • GRID+ Controls with 9 Fan Headers

There are 9 fan headers on this motherboard. That’s right, we said 9! Gone are the days of searching for splitters or external fan controllers. In fact, we have our NZXT GRID+ V3 features built right into the motherboard to help you adjust individual fan curves for each channel using our CAM software. This is all made even better with our Adaptive Noise Reduction feature that adjusts these fan curves automatically using machine learning technology.

  • Z370 Express Chipset

We’ve built our motherboard around the latest Intel Z370 Express Chipset. This motherboard is compatible with Intel 8th Generation Coffee Lake Intel Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3 processors.

  • Stable Overclocking

Our 15 digital power-phase design using Infineon ICs ensures clean and reliable power for your CPU, memory, and PCH chipset. You can overclock your memory with speeds of up to 3866+ MHz with Intel XMP 2.0.

  • Intel Optane Memory Ready

We’ve included 2x M.2 ports and included support for Intel Optane Memory allowing for faster data transfer between the memory, storage, and processor. Visit Intel for more information on the benefits of Intel Optane Memory.
