NZXT N7 Motherboard VRM Review & OC Potential

Buildzoid looks at the NZXT N7 motherboard VRM, analyzing it for overclocking quality and performance at the $250 price-point.

Our NZXT N7 BIOS overview can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW5BHa3OmtY

This board is made by ECS and designed by NZXT. More to come on the N7 later, probably. We might keep it on hold for some other content. For now, you’ve got a full VRM detail on the NZXT N7, including VCCSA, VCCIO, Vcore, and Vmem.

I’ve seen some video reviews of this board, it sucks at overclocking and the BIOS smells highly of CAM.

Layne Brown says:

Why does he keep drawing number sevens when he means one?

ThrakazogZ says:

This video brought to you by the EVGA SC2 1080ti…….it’ll be the best $1500 you ever spent 😛

The Gas Man says:

Subbed !

Meteor Media says:

What I love about this board is the amount of 4-pin fan sockets. More manufacturers should put so many on their boards.

I'm Cmart says:

For people who would rather look at their computer than their monitor

Dmetsys says:

TL;DR: It was manufactured by ECS. In a nutshell, it’s overpriced garbage. You can find higher quality motherboards with a more functional BIOS for a lot cheaper.

michael woods says:

Heh… N7 next one will be Spectre board. Like this if you get it.

l0unny says:

Thank you

Mike Munro says:

Pulls no punches. “I don’t care about aesthetics” lol RGB be damned. Love it.

Hblue says:

I’m not sure how to feel about the aesthetic. Obviously, that’s their main selling point; you may or may not like how the board itself looks, but you’re obviously buying this if you care about the look of your rig as a whole with the whole RGB thing. That’s what I don’t get, though. I personally love how the board would look in my Black S340 Elite, which has absolutely no LEDs at all as I do not like RGB whatsoever. In a RGB build? I’m not sure I would like the look of the board. I’ll still consider it, though, depending on the final price in CAD.

Andrei Neacsu says:

Except for the placement of the two buttons, I’m positively impressed of this motherboard. It’s not something that I desire, because I don’t care for RGR, but a decent motherboard is always good for keeping the competition alive.
To me, it seems that this motherboard is good for any non-extreme overclocking and offers proper support exceeding the specs needed for an 8700K. Maybe I’m just surprised that they did not completely cheap-out on the VRM when adding RGB.

kokos NH says:

So it’s very similar to ROG Maximus X Apex in CPU VRM, that’s quite a good news 😀

sparkplug1018 says:

Nice seeing an engineering level review of a motherboard. Good job.

1idd0kun says:

Pretty insightful video.

Carmonben says:

Igpu is useful for quicksync…

Robert Dimaggio says:

Please do the AM4 taichi and other VRM reviews for Ryzen theres a lot of junk science out there right now.

MrSteney says:

Why doesn’t someone just hire this guy to build the ultimate motherboard?

I'm Cmart says:

What were the inbox thermals when you got it?

SlavjanA says:

It’s got about the same VRMs as the Maximus X Apex which is a $350 motherboard, so $250 isn’t too much in comparison.

Albeit it’s also not something you need to max out an 8700K since you can comfortably do that with a $150 board, it’s just that it won’t do it as efficiently, but we’re not talking about Xeon’s here either.

666th like

Josh Vance says:

I’d love to see a video like this on the Asus Strix z370-i board!

MrBall Breeder says:

i would pay 80 bucks for it and not a dime more

Zona ALG says:

Can you guys make a video on how to overclock OEM motherboards or not overclockable boards with setfsb

I know is basic stuff, but I mean from a professional way to look at everything, just like this mossfet video

Delta9K says:

Buildzoid !

MArk Noyt says:

David K. says:

These mosfets are basically new CSD87350Q5D, i bet we will see them in most mid and high end motherboards soon.

Lars Bolduc says:

I wish the professors when I was in University would have just pulled designs off of popular products and did break downs like this.
