After the previous ASRock H470 and ASRock B460 motherboard test we are looking at the ASRock Z490 Steel Legend motherboard, the third LGA1200 motherboard for Intel Comet Lake-S processors from the ASRock Steel Legend series, on OCinside.de today!
The back of the box shows some new features like 2.5 Gb/s LAN, Dual Ultra M.2, Nahimic 3D Audio, M.2 Cooler, Steel Slot and Polychrome RGB Connection and, in contrast to the B460 Steel Legend, depending on the CPU, support for Hyper M.2 via PCIe 4.0, but also USB 3.2 Gen2 support!
Let us now turn to the contents of the box. Included is a manual, a DVD, two SATA data cables (angled and straight), four screws for the M.2 sockets, two M.2 spacers and an ATX I/O panel. Additional USB slot covers or an ASRock USB 3.1 front panel are optionally available.
