About the N7 B550

Designed around AMD’s B550 chipset, the N7 B550 delivers everything you need to build an incredible gaming PC. Features include built-in Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, integrated fan controller, RGB accessories supported across all manufacturers, and more. The motherboard cover perfectly matches the color and finish of your NZXT case, creating a visually seamless backdrop for your components.

 

Why did we design the N7 B550?

Our goal with the N7 is to create a seamless experience for PC gaming and building so that our customers can get the most out of their systems. That is why we chose to work with ASRock as our vendor that started with the N7 Z490 and now with the N7 B550.  ASRock worked with us to ensure we were able to create a motherboard that supports the latest AMD’s CPUs with the proper connectivity and strong BIOS support.

 

The N7 is designed to provide builders with a simple building experience. Like the N7 Z490 before it, we worked to ensure that placement for essential ports are easily accessible for building and that we gave gamers the ideal specifications that they need to have an optimal experience. Additionally, the N7 B550 heightens the aesthetics of a build with its all-metal cover so that it can easily bring out the beauty of one’s build. Finally, the N7 B550 provides users with the ability to easily control their fan curves and lighting profiles with NZXT CAM so that they can tune their system for their needs.
