Supermicro SUPERO C7Z270-CG Gaming Board - Unboxing

The motherboard comes in a rather small package that has a plastic cover displaying the name of the product, C7Z270-CG.

Flip the board to reveal the specifications sheet of the motherboard. Z270 boards like SUPERO’s CZ270-CG come with all the features you’d expect from a high-end board.

The plastic cover comes off with ease revealing the product name. SUPERO is a division of Supermicro who are known for their top class server quality designs and the same is to be expected from this product given that it’s marketed around the whole server quality build.

The flip side also has another list of specifications listed. All features of the board such as overclocking, NVMe/SATA RAID support, Ultra Speed USB, M.2/U.2 storage, VR support and DirectX 12 support are featured here. The last two however are quite cheesy in the sense that this product is a motherboard.

The motherboard is wrapped inside an anti-static cover that is true for all Z270 boards. The internal packaging is colored in green which matches the colors on the board.

The accessories are contained underneath the motherboard in a separate cardboard section. Accessories include a black colored I/O shield, drivers disk, 4 SATA III cables and an SLI bridge.

The SUPERO C7Z270-CG is a nicely solid board out of box. It has a black and green color scheme which we don’t see a lot of nowadays and some may find the color scheme odd. However, the overall design language of the board remains strong with a PCB that is solidly built.
