The new 8th generation Intel® Core™ processors are here and ready to take on any and every task you can throw at it. Whether it is creating, editing, and sharing 4K, VR, and 360 degree content, playing your favorite video games, or streaming 4K movies and TV shows there is nothing this newest generation of CPUs can’t handle.


Intel® Optane™ technology takes performance to the next level by combining DRAM memory to boost storage up to 1000x faster than current NAND storage, and up to 100,000x faster than standard HDDs. Pair it with your slower storage media and enjoy faster and better gaming performance than ever before.

24/7 Reliability

SUPERO motherboards are designed and tested similar to our world famous server motherboards. We continuously stress, tweak, restress, and retweak our products to be the most stable and power efficient giving you superior performance with the least heat generated. Using only the highest quality components such as our epoxy glass resin PCB, digital PWMs, Dr. MOS, and ferrite chokes you’ll know that your motherboard is top of the line.

Customizable RGB LEDs

With our latest 2nd generation SUPERO Booster you’ll be able to light up your world with the customizable RGB LEDs built into the motherboard. You’ll have different series of patterns such as alarm, breathing, meteor, and rainbow fully adjustable speeds as well. You’ll stand out from the crowd and outshine the competition with our latest C7Z370-CG-IW motherboard!

Dual M.2

Storage speeds have come a long way in the hardware industry. Mechanical drives are still being used and for those who wanted a boost upgraded to solid state drives. Now we have PCI-E M.2 the latest in storage technology with speeds not only surpassing double the speeds of a standard SATA 3.0 mechanical drive, but upwards of up to 3-5 times faster overall. When coupling in RAID 0 you’ll have exceptional performance. Latency is improved immensely up to 10x more efficiently and 8-10x faster data transfer speeds. What more can you ask for?

SUPERO Booster

Running the latest Intel’s CPU you’ll want to use the best monitor program for your SuperO motherboard. The SuperO Booster lets you sit in the driver seat to monitor, tweak, and fine tune every part of your overclocking adventure. You’ll be able to adjust CPU and memory speeds, voltages, and fan speeds on the fly and that isn’t all. We have now included Load Line Calibration, multiple overclocking profiles giving you the ability to toggle different configurations on the fly, and a Fast Boot Option which allows you to boot into Windows 10 at a much higher speed while using a SSD.


Using the latest 802.11ac wireless technology and Intel’s i219V gigabit Ethernet controller you’ll be able to run your system at home and at any LAN party. In addition to internet connectivity we have included a range of USB 3.1, 3.0, and 2.0 ports for all your devices. Additional displays for your system? No problem! We have included both HDMI and DisplayPort outputs for you to maximize efficiency for your setup!

Funkykit Recommends SUPERO C7Z370-CG-IW!

SuperO C7Z370-CG-IW is fast and is well designed. There are single things which I would change but in general there is nothing to complain about. Gamers should be satisfied as out of the box everything runs great. Less advanced users can have some problems with manual overclocking and for them I recommend overclocking profiles which let to set CPU frequency at least up to 4.8GHz. It’s more than enough for gaming.
