ASRock Z690 PG Veloctia Motherboard - Unboxing
The ASRock Z690 PG Velocita comes in a similarly sized package as the Taichi. The front is themed in a very nice red and black color theme. The front side also lists down support for Intel's 12th generation Core processors, PolyChrome Sync, and HDMI marketing labels.
The backside of the package lists down the specifications and special features of the motherboard such as Direct 17 phase power delivery, PCIe 5.0 Slot with SMT (Surface Mount Technology), DDR5 Reinforced memory slots, and PCIe Gen 5 Blazing M.2 SSD.
The top of the box opens up to reveal a cool "Phantom Gaming" branding within the package itself.
Inside the package is another box that contains the accessories and is located right below the box holder for the board itself. It is very easy to access although the accessories are a bit scattered and things could get messy sorting out the various additions.
There are several accessories included in the package such as a Wi-Fi antenna module, four SATA III cables, screws for the M.2 storage devices, a driver disk, a manual for the board, and even a few stickers. Following is the full list of accessories in the package.
- - Quick Installation Guide, Support CD
- - 4 x SATA Data Cables
- - 1 x Graphics Card Holder
- - 1 x Wireless Dongle USB Bracket
- - 1 x 3010 Cooling Fan with Bracket and Screw Package
- - 1 x 4010 Cooling Fan Bracket and Screw Package
- - 1 x ASRock WiFi 2.4/5/6 GHz Antenna
- - 3 x Screws for M.2 Sockets
- - 3 x Standoffs for M.2 Sockets
The motherboard also comes with the same 30mm fan as the Taichi along with its bracket that can house up to 40mm fans.
The motherboard is housed within the cardboard package and has anti-static wrapping to protect it from any built-up electrical resistance that can affect the board.
The ASRock Z690 PG Velocita might not be the flagship but it has a design that screams high-end and the addition of an all M.2 heatsink design makes it look even better.
