ASUS PRIME X299 Deluxe Motherboard- Unboxing

The ASUS PRIME X299 Deluxe motherboard comes inside a hefty, rectangular shaped package. This package is very heavy compared to some normal motherboards but it shows that ASUS has packed a lot of goodies aside from the board inside the box.

The Front has various marketing material. The board name is listed boldly on the front along with the company title “ASUS – In Search of Incredible”. There are other marketing logos that include Intel X299 Inside, Intel Core-X series, NVIDIA SLI, AMD Crossfire, dts Connect, dts Headphone, ASUS Aura Sync and 3D Printing Friendly Design.

The back of the box contains all the marketing details along with product specifications. Most of the marketing tags have already been detailed by us in the “Features” section above. As can be seen, this board is loaded in features.

There’s even a flip cover on the front that reveals motherboard specific features that are scattered across the product. Some of these include Front USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, Wi-Fi 802.11ad (WiGig), M.2 heatsink, LiveDash OLED, AURA Sync, U.2/M.2 and Realtek S1220A audio codec featuring crystal sound 3.

The motherboard is housed in a separate compartment within the box. You can note that the Anti static shielding is covering the motherboard to protect it from electrical and static shocks during shipping.

Out of the box, the motherboard is a very elegantly designed product. It’s surprising that ASUS has managed to cram so much stuff inside a standard ATX form factor. The motherboard comes with a lot of goodies that we are going to talk about but first, let’s take a look at the accessories that are included inside the package.
