MSI completes mini-ITX Nightblade series with launch of Nightblade Z97

Supporting the latest gaming features of MSI’s Z97 GAMING platform

MSI, leading manufacturer of gaming hardware, completes its popular Nightblade mini-ITX Gaming barebone series with the MSI Nightblade Z97. As the name suggest, the Nightblade Z97 implements the latest MSI Z97I GAMING motherboard. This means that the Nightblade Z97 comes with Audio Boost 2, providing the latest technology in high-quality audio for gamers. Next to that, the front I/O panel of the MSI Nightblade Z97 has all plenty of options to connect a gaming headset, mouse and keyboard, while featuring MSI’s easy overclocking button OC Genie as well. Despite its mini-ITX form factor, the Nightblade Z97 delivers a powerful gaming performance and thanks to its compact size, brushed aluminum finish on the front and awesomely presented Dragon on the side of the case, gamers won’t have to hide their PC beneath their desk anymore. A useful handle situated at the bottom-front of the Nightblade’s mini-ITX case can be used to pick up and carry this lightweight gaming beast around from one gaming event to the next.

ATX Graphics Support

Despite its Mini-ITX form factor, the small sized Nightblade provides enough space for a full-size two slot-in graphics card via a PCI-E 3.0×16 slot. Graphics cards up to a length of 290mm and a thickness of 35mm, making the Nightblade a vicious tool for gamers craving for amazing in-game images while exploring virtual worlds and battlefields.

Smart Fan Control

The case fan inside the MSI Nightblade Z97 is custom made for its chassis and is dynamically adjusted in speed depending on the activities of the user. With Smart Fan Control gamers have complete control of all the fans connected to the motherboard and users can real-time monitor the status of the fans and set fan profiles as well.

No Compromise Gaming

Easy Assembly

The Nightblade Z97 is equipped with a MSI GAMING motherboard, designed for casual and professional gamers. It features three crucial gaming factors, speed, sound and stability. To practice these features, MSI Nightblade Z97 comes with “Killer Game Networking” for the best network speed. “Sound Blaster 2” supports an excellent sound quality and the ‘Military Class Components” represent a high stability. With the MSI Z97I GAMING motherboard smartly placed inside the MSI Nightblade, and a PSU powerful enough to supply each component with sufficient power, the expansion options of the MSI Nightblade are almost endless. Whether a new ATX-sized graphics card or two SSDs need to be assembled, a system integrator or consumer can easily do it independently by opening the left side panel of the case. Add or remove an Optical Drive, upgrade the memory or CPU, it’s all in your own hands.

Carrying Handle

A useful handle at the bottom-front of the Nightblade can be used to pick up and carry this gaming beast around from one LAN-event to the next. The level of mobility doesn’t stop there. With help of the rubber covers fitting the metal screws on the backside of the Nightblade, this system can even be stacked up vertically after carrying it around. That way, the panel and connectors on the back remain unharmed each time when arriving at a new gamer’s den.
