When it comes to mini-ITX AMD X570 motherboards there are only a handful to choose from. Today we are checking out ASRock’s offering which comes in the form of the X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3. We first saw the Phantom Gaming Series from ASRock with their Z390 Phantom Gaming X and we are hoping to see the same quality in the X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3. This board gives you the ability to run AMD’s top-end Ryzen 3000 series processors in an extremely small form factor. Some of the main features of the board include a 10 phase VRM, Thunderbolt 3, WiFi 6, and of course RGB lighting. ASRock has also removed the AM4 mounting bracket and given the board Intel mounting holes to make the best use of space. Is this the ultimate mini-ITX X570 board? Read on as we find out!

The ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 comes in a small box, not much larger than the board itself. On the front we have a large Phantom Gaming logo and it lets us know that it does support AMD Ryzen 3000 series desktop processors.
Flipping over to the back many of the features of the board are detailed and there is a full list of rear ports and specifications.
Getting everything out of the box we have a WiFi antenna, a bag of two SATA cables, mounting screw for the M.2 slot, a software and driver CD, case badge, software setup guide, and a quick installation guide.
