Matte Black Motherboard Setup... Absolutely gorgeous!

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 www.nzxt.com/products/n7-b550-matte-white

    No, the reason people didnt like CAM was because it was a data miner.

    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.

    I built my current rig based on the Sabertooth motherboard, just a gorgeous looking board in my opinion. Now I've been wanting to build a new rig based on AMD but nothing came close to my Sabertooth. There is an existing N7 but based on the Intel chipset, but like I said, I want to go AMD this time round. Well the wait is over.

    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. :)

    Im intrigued to see what market this board is aimed at. If you are going to go "All in" with NZXT proprietary setup, surely you would just go pre-built? Or is this basically a branding exercise by them, controlling motherboards for their pre-builts and selling off some excess stock?

    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.

    I never knew NZXT made mainboards! It's reminding me of a build that ended up going in a different direction because I found a case that fit my needs better, but I originally had the idea to modify a NZXT H710 or H710i. Now that I know they make mainboards too, I can only dream of Linus Tech Tips promoting them through an "all NZXT build", that I won't be surprised if NZXT BLD already offers. (12:39) (looks at Gigabyte mainboards, at least Z270 based boards, because I didn't realise I turned on RAID and was wondering why my SSDs wouldn't show up correctly in Samsung Magician)

    So you mention having part of your windows system files installed on another drive. I ended up with this problem myself due to lack of experience with SSD and NVME I imagine. Is there a way to fix that so I dont have to keep other drives installed. I was setting up to use other drives as removeable backups and my case has a great port for this so I can plug in the drive. Back up. unplug drive till next backup. I really dont want to fresh install windows again as I would have to fight with license transfers on some important programs I use.
