Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers since the launch of the new N7 Z370 motherboard, today NZXT is announcing a change to the product and a price reduction from $299.99 to $249.99, both effective immediately.
“We were surprised-and humbled-by the PC gaming community’s reaction to our new N7 motherboard. Our focus on simplifying the assembly process for users building their own gaming PC and our unconventional, minimalist approach to design that makes the motherboard disappear into the case has really resonated with people,” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder, and CEO. “The feedback we received was, that while the thoughtful layout and beautiful all-metal cover are appealing, the price is a bit too high. We’ve taken steps to address that today with changes to the configuration and price.”
Unlike competitive Z370 motherboard offerings, NZXT originally planned to bundle LED light strips and extension cables in the box. To be able to offer a lower price, these have been removed from the product. NZXT will also sell its N7 motherboard through a more limited channel, lowering the overall cost of operation and allowing the MSRP to be further reduced.
“We also heard from the PC gaming community that they are concerned with our ability to produce a high-quality motherboard. We are working with ECS, a company that produces motherboards for some of the world’s largest OEMs,” continues Johnny, “We are very confident in our quality. And to help allay the fears of the community, we are increasing our warranty from 3 to 4 years.”
The NZXT N7 Z370 ATX motherboard is expected to be available from select retailers in the North America and Europe by the end of January*. Customers who have pre-ordered the motherboard will automatically receive the discount prior to shipping.
The NZXT N7 Z370 Motherboard includes the following exclusive features:
- Powered by CAM, NZXT’s control, and monitoring software
- 2 RGB lighting channels using HUE+ technology
- 9 digital PWM fan channels based on GRID+ technology
- All-metal motherboard cover finished using the same paints and processes as their cases
- Optional heatsink covers finished matching NZXT’s case colorways (matte white and black, as well as glossy red, blue, and purple)
Since the first production runs of the motherboards have already been shipped, initial buyers may find LEDs strips in the package. All future manufacturing runs will remove the LEDs strips and extension cables from the box.
