NZXT reduces the price of their Z370 N7 motherboard

When NZXT revealed their Z370 N7 series of motherboards, there were two instant reactions from the PC building community, first that these motherboards look fantastic, delivering unique colour schemes and a clean aesthetic. Secondly, others looked at this motherboard and thought, wow, these boards are expensive.  

To address these concerns, NZXT has announced that they will be reducing the price of their N7 Z370 motherboards from $299 to $249, a price reduction that will be achieved by removing LED strips and extension cables from the motherboard's accessories and by selling the motherboard using a more limited channel. Below is a comment from NZXT's Founder and CEO, Johhny Hou. 



       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,

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.


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
  • - Nine 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 colourways (matte white and black, as well as glossy red, blue, and purple)

  

 

One other concern from fans was the fact that this is NZXT's first motherboard, with many disliking the fact that this board was built by ECS, a large OEM motherboard manufacturer that is relatively unknown in the boutique PC building scene. To alleviate these concerns, NZXT has also increased the warranty of their Z7 Z370 motherboards from three years to four years, a 33% increase. 

     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,

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.

 
NZXT has stated that these price changes are effective immediately, with those who already pre-ordered a board getting an automatic discount before their product ships.

Still too expensive from a brand that has no history of mobos to back it up. I would not buy a nzxt mobo from the start.Quote

A 4-year warranty is not to be snuffed at, but I still wouldn't buy one because of how they look. I appreciate they're trying something different, but it doesn't appeal to my sense of style. I love the look of a bare black PCB and this ruins that. These boards look like Stikklebrix and doesn't assure me of quality.Quote

What they should have done here was take the five best and most popular boards and just made the covers.Quote
