Exclusive: ASRock X570 Creator Motherboard Preview

We’ve just received the ASRock X570 Creator motherboard and we are pleased to give you an exclusive first look at this fantastic motherboard. It’s designed and developed for high-end enthusiast content creators, and has a similar feature set to their flagship ASRock X570 Aqua (which has built-in water cooling). Let’s take a look at the photos below …

 

The Box and Packaging

 

The Motherboard

The X570 Creator has a nice gun-metal grey theme with silver heatsinks, and a black finish. The top heatsinks incorporates a short heat-pipe for cooling the mosfets/VRMs, while the heatsink for the chipset is actively cooled with a small fan.

 

A Closer Look

It also comes with an integrated Aquantia 10 Gigabit ethernet port, as well as host of other features including … 14-phase power delivery, 8-pin plus 4-pin i12 V ATX CPU power inputs for delivering power to the processor. 

You also get the Intel AX200 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6, two DisplayPorts (one for input, and other for output), as well as one HDMI video output. There’s three PCIe 4.0 x16 slots and three PCIe 4.0 x1 slots. Both M.2 slots support the PCIe 4.0 standard and are covered by a full length armor heat shield.

You’ll find a total of eight SATA ports with support for RAID 0, 1, and 10 arrays. And of course my favorite feature … the onboard power on/off and reset buttons and diagnostice LEDs.

For USB connectivity, there’s two USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A, as well as four rear-panel USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A, and finally two rear panel Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ports.
