The back, on the other hand, is packed with technical data and features like DDR5, PCIe 5.0 and a 20-phase power supply. In addition, we can already take a first look at the motherboard here.

It gets really exciting when we open the box like a book. On the left side, ASRock presents more great features that complement the board sensibly. On the right side, we can look at the gem through a large plastic pane.

In the first of two boxes we find the lush accessories for the motherboard. Included are cloth cable ties, the manual, a driver CD, SATA connection cables, two WiFi antennas, a slot bracket with 2 USB ports, mounting screws for the M.2 interfaces, an ASRock Taichi button, a bottle opener in Taichi design and a graphics card holder.

The second box contains the motherboard. ASRock has omitted an anti-static foil in favor of the look in the box. Nevertheless, the motherboard is well and safely packed.
