ASRock Z590 Steel Legend Motherboard - Unboxing

Moving over to our most budget Z590 motherboard, the ASRock Z590 Steel Legend WiFi 6E, we see a return of the Arctic camo design. The front side also lists down support for Intel's 11th generation Core processors, HDMI, and Polychrome Sync technologies.
