The new N7 B550 Motherboard from NZXT had some big issues to overcome with the previous N7 B390 boards and their less than stellar features and quality. So let's see how it did! Check out the N7 B550 at

  • I wonder if the Mainboard also catches on fire? I heard that that is a new NZXT feature. That and changing Parts from Review Samples. I'm kind of joking, but right now I'm not buying NZXT because I want them to maybe learn from their mistakes. Not because of Quality Issues, but because of lying to Customers and then trying to weasel out of the responsibility. I can pass on better looks for that.

  • Nzxt with the triple CPU digital cooler is awesome so I'm keen to see what they put into gaming motherboards. Hopefully RGB and make it look as cool as the Asus ROG Strix stuff. I'm not a fan of wifi on the boards but I am a big supporter of digital read outs that give me information about what my pc is doing. I'd love to see support for 128gig of ram, ryzen threadripper compatible variations of the board, just the standard stuff, 2x m.2 drives, just really high end stuff because I spend $800-$1000 Australian on good quality motherboards. I love NZXT so I'm really keen to see where and what NZXT do with their boards. I'd love to see them do stuff bigger and better than everyone else :)

  • Did a similar matte black (with couple of small blue accents) look 5-6 years ago on a Sabertooth X99, by removing all the covers and shrouds and airbrushing them, then painting the slots as well (put some cardboard in them to prevent them getting shat up by the paint. Turned out pretty nicely, only downside is matte surface seems to grip very fine dust (the kind that goes through the filters) like crazy.

  • I like everything I see, but am still considerably burnt by their data harvesting scam from the CAM software back in the day... it looks wonderful vs other software, but when I had to manually disable network connections for the app so it wouldn't be able to send NZXT my hardware specs/loads/god knows what else don't get sent to NZXT, it was just not ideal.... No idea how they could convince me that scam wouldn't be EVEN WORSE with using their own motherboard AND software.

  • Next time you are bored Jay, here is an experiment for you: buy a large off the shelf full PC case, then mod it so that it still looks good, but can hold enough 140mm fan based radiators (like multiple 560mm or 420mm radiators) to be able to get a max overclocked top of the range CPU and GPU to within 5 degrees C of ambient, with fans running at the minimum speed they can go. I know you did the box fan experiment, but that was not within an off the shelf PC case, not practical, and not something that we could copy at home ourselves in a way that would look good on as a complete self contained PC that you want to keep and "RGB up", rather than bits of equipment all over the place. If you do this, please show every step because I would love to follow your method and have one of these myself. :)

  • I used Asrock a few times like 10 years ago, I stopped went back to Asus since they're more reliable, more stable and equal if not better performance. I won't build with any other brand now. I don't overclock with exception of XMP on ram. I am truly amazed at all the youtubers who rave about e-waste yet they all seem to do overclocking videos. When they have to be aware as any good tech is that overclocking shortens the life of the system. Spend more on better parts, if you get cheaper parts and overclock then you have to spend much more on cooling to come close to compensating. But I'm old, and scotish I made the last system last 10 years with a gpu upgrade about 5 yrs in. An off topic comments now, who wants to boycott the Newegg shuffle since they won't sell a video card by itself now? Moving more and more of my tech purchases to Amazon because of Newegg's sketchy business practices like what they're doing with the shuffle. PS like your stuff btw tons better than Minus Tech Tips, which is what it's become, with all the sales pitches there's hardly any time for tech tips let alone news.

  • Never would buy an NZXT board, mainly because I hate the CAM software. I had to search forever to find another software which would let me controll the pump speed. Argus Monitor is completely capable of that, so I deinstalled CAM. What bothers me too are the restrictions that NZXT implemented in their AIO coolers … For example if you run CAM and Hwinfo at the same time it won’t readout the water temp, pump speed etc. lol. It’s just greyed out and that’s definitely intended from NZXT.
