ASRock X299 Extreme4 Motherboard- Unboxing

The ASRock X299 Extreme4 motherboard comes inside a standard cardboard package. There isn't much involved in the packaging and the design is kept consistent with ASRock's Extreme line up of motherboards with the whole blue and black design language.

The Front has various marketing logos. The board name is listed boldly on the front along with the company title "ASRock". There are other marketing logos that include Intel X299 Inside, Intel Core-X series, NVIDIA SLI, AMD Crossfire, RGB LED and Intel Optane Memory support.


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.

The Extreme4 packs extreme value when it comes to features. This motherboard has almost all the features of the high-end motherboards that cost more than $200 US. Some important highlights include Dual Ultra M.2 slots, 11 phase power design, M.2 Key E for WiFi support, dual 8 pin power connectors and a solid heatsink design.

Inside of the package isn't the most tidiest considering this is a budget oriented motherboard. The motherboard is contained within a anti-static wrapping and bordered with foam material to avoid any damage. The accessories are scrambled on the top most section. Full list of accessories are as follows:

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

Out of the box, the motherboard has a very unique design and layout. The motherboard sticks to the ATX form factor regardless of all the features and additions that ASRock has made to their high end X299 product. The motherboard comes with a lot of goodies that we are going to talk about in the next section.
