Last week a package arrived from Supermicro, and to my surprise, I found Supermicro's brand new C7Z370-CG-L inside. The C7Z370-CG-L has slight upgrades and major aesthetic changes compared to the C7Z270-CG, many of them good changes. For starters, Supermicro has realized that a lot of people are asking for all black motherboards so that the board can fade into the background.
The motherboard is actually under Supermicro's SuperO brand, which handles their gaming segment. While SuperO doesn't produce too many motherboards, they have been making their way into the consumer gaming market for a little while now, and every generation things tend to get better. I have been on the ride with them since their Z97 days, and now, many generations later, we get more motherboards that look and feel like gaming products.
Let's see what they have to offer.
The C7Z370-CG offers two M.2 slots, six SATA6Gb/s ports, 1Gbit Intel LAN, USB 3.1, and of course USB 3.0.
The C7Z370-CG costs $179.99.
