11:57 Leo’s Closing Thoughts

Smart styling is a perfect match for an NZXT case
DDR4 support will reduce the cost of your build
Decent support for M.2 and SATA
Wi-Fi 6E works well

The BIOS seems unable to use the available power
Modest DrMOS VRMs will not appeal to overclockers
The price puts this N7 Z690 head-to-head with many other Z690 motherboards
