Yet, it would have been pleasant if NZXT had emerged from the entryway with a X570 offering all things being equal, or notwithstanding the N7 B550.
Notwithstanding, the N7 B550 is here, and it costs $230, equivalent to the N7 Z490 we explored a year ago. It’s another tastefully satisfying plan—NZXT adhered to the outline of offering a matte white or matte dark metal cover on top of a smoothed out format, or selling a bare rendition (each of the three choices cost something similar).
