Pint-Size Powerhouse

We understand that hardcore gamers always want the best components around, but not necessarily the biggest making it tough to lug around. Compact, powerful, customizable, the SUPERO C9Z390-CG-IW exceeds expectations and more with gigabit wired and wireless technologies, immersive surround audio, illuminating RGB LEDs, and server quality components keeping you in the battle longer and always ready for the next.

Server Quality

We have over 20 years of creating the best servers in the world. How does this benefit the gaming world? We design our motherboards to perform fast and powerful, while maintaining a lower operating temperature. The benefits to that is better longevity, fast performance, and a great machine that is more stable when overclocking for gaming needs.

Intel® 9th Gen Ready!

At last, the latest generation is here -- 9th Gen Intel ® Core™ CPUs! Are you ready to take on every task whether it is gaming, VR, or entertainment? The computing power of the Intel® 9th Gen Core™ CPU is powerful enough and it even screams for more of a challenge!


Our slots are fortified with reinforced metal that significantly improves the connection between our SuperO motherboards and your peripherals.

Lightning Fast Storage

Push for the highest performance! We include the latest NVME storage options, two M.2 slots on the C9Z390-CG-IW motherboard. We offer RAID 0 or 1 with the inclusion of supporting Intel® Optane™ memory, giving you even more flexibility within your system. We also have included heatspreaders for both M.2 slots to keep your drives cool without compromising your performance.

Always Connected!

Either on the road or on the move our SUPERO motherboards will have the best network connectivity options. The C9Z390-CG-IW motherboard will have gigabit LAN AND gigabit wireless 802.11ac! Included with network options we have included the latest in USB technology with version 3.1 Gen 2 pumping out a maximum of 10 gigabits a second in both the Type A and C connections!

Dual 4K60hz Displays

DisplayPort + HDMI + 4K output from the motherboard equals Dual 4K Displays! SUPERO made sure that anyone that is running our C9Z390-CG-IW motherboard will have the latest DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 technologies built directly into the I/O. Having up to dual simultaneous ultra-high definition displays without having to opt for a separate graphics card!

Programmable RGB

Customize and put your personal signature on our motherboards! Fully customizable with our SUPERO Booster software, we have installed RGB LEDs along the edge of our C9Z390-CG-IW. Not only is the motherboard equipped with LEDs, we have gone a step above including an additional RGB LED header so you can light up your rig from the inside out.

Editor's Choice Award from eTeknix for C9Z390-CG-IW

The Z390 launch is going off in style, with us having quite a few boards for this launch, including two from Super Micro. However, this one is pretty special, as it’s the only board we have for review that isn’t ATX! Even better, it’s mini-ITX, making it attractive for those seeking to build more compact systems around the Z390 platform. With support for both 8th and 9th Gen Intel CPUs, this may prove to be a very popular motherboard. Of course, we’ll be testing ours with the new flagship Intel Core i9-9900K, which is sure to put the motherboard through its paces better than any other.
