ASRock X570S PG RIPTIDE Motherboard - Unboxing

The ASRock X570S PG Riptide comes in a standard rectangular box. The packaging has a gaming touch to it with a black and blue color theme. There's a large 'PG Riptide' logo to the left while the bottom lists down several features such as 'Ryzen 5000 Desktop Ready', PolyChrome Sync & HDMI support.

The back of the box contains all the marketing details along with product specifications. The most interesting features that are highlighted by ASRock include Lightning Gaming Ports, Killer E3100G 2.5G LAN, Graphics Cardholder, and more.

Within the package are two boxes, one houses the motherboard, and the other houses the board accessories. The accessories for the ASRock X570S PG Riptide include:

  • Quick Installation Guide, Support CD, I/O Shield
  • 2 x SATA Data Cables
  • 1 x Graphics Card Holder
  • 3 x Screws for M.2 Sockets
  • 1 x Standoff for M.2 Socket

Outside of the package, the motherboard can be seen well placed in two foam containers that hold the motherboard nicely in place. The motherboard has the standard ATX look to it and is one of the first fanless X570 motherboards that I will be testing out.
