ASRock X299 Taichi CLX- Unboxing

The ASRock X299 Taichi CLX motherboard comes inside a large, rectangular-shaped cardboard box. This package is very heavy compared to some normal motherboards but it shows that ASRock has packed a lot of goodies aside from the board inside the box.

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 whole box has a mechanical gear theme that reflects the symbol of Taichi.

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. Some important highlights include Dual Intel LAN, 13 Phase Power, and DR.MOS, Hyper BCLK Engine II, Triple Ultra M.2, and Polychrome SYNC RGB.

The motherboard and accessories are packed in separate containers. The accessories box includes two compartments, each of which has different accessories.
