SuperO C9Z590-CGW Motherboard Review

Rating: 6.0.

KitGuru has reviewed four motherboards from SuperO over the past four years with mixed results. Before you dive into our review of the SuperO C9Z590-CGW you might find it helpful to take a walk down memory lane and check out the C9Z390-PGW, C9Z390-CG-IW, C9Z370-CG-IW or C9X299-PG300 and you will get a feel for how SuperO goes about its work. The hardware is often very good while the finished product can be quirky or, occasionally, downright annoying.
