ASRock X399M Taichi Motherboard- Unboxing

The ASRock X399M Taichi comes in a standard box shaped package. The front of it has the large X399M Taichi labeling on the front along with the Taichi logo surrounding it. Labels include Ryzen Threadripper, AMD Crossfire, NVIDIA SLI and RGB LED. There’s also mention of AMD Socket TR4 and X399 chipset on the front.

The back of the package lists down several major features of motherboard which includes a 11 Phase power supply, Intel WiFi 802.11 ac capabilities, Purity Sound 4, XXL heatsink design and the entire specs sheet of board. There’s a lot to go through which I will detail in the closer look section.

The package can be opened to reveal another black colored box which houses the motherboard and the accessories that come with it.

Out of the box, the X399M Taichi looks surprisingly small which is due to its M-ATX form factor. It is the only M-ATX X399 motherboard available in the market.

Within the package are two compartments, one houses the motherboard with foam packaging around it which protects the motherboard during carriage. The second compartment houses the accessories.

Accessories for the motherboard include the following:

  • Quick Installation Guide, Support CD, I/O Shield
  • 4 x SATA Data Cables
  • 1 x ASRock SLI_HB_Bridge_1S Card
  • 1 x ASRock SLI_HB_Bridge_2S Card
  • 2 x ASRock WiFi 2.4/5 GHz Antennas
  • 3 x Screws for M.2 Sockets

Outside of the package, the ASRock X399M Taichi looks like it has a lot of surprises within itself that I am willing to find out. The motherboard is a unique X399 motherboard and there are a lot of users who have been waiting for a m-ATX X399 motherboard to come along, now it is finally here.
