NZXT N7 Z590 Review

Rating: 7.5.

When the NZXT N7 Z590 arrived at our door we had a fair idea what to expect as Luke has reviewed the NZXT N7 B550 and I built a PC using the NZXT N7 Z490. This N7 Z590 follows the same approach where ASRock is the OEM for the hardware and NZXT works on the aesthetics to hide as much of the motherboard as possible under a set of shrouds and covers.
