ASRock B760M Steel Legend WiFi Motherboard Review

Today, we’ll be taking a look at the ASRock B760M Steel Legend WiFi motherboard. This motherboard uses Intel’s B760 chipset and features a pretty decent 12+1+1 Power Phase, with Dr.MOS for VCore+GT.

It supports Intel’s 12th gen, 13th gen and the latest 14th processors on the LGA 1700 socket, support memory speeds of up to DDR5-7200MHz (OC).

It comes in a micro ATX form factor, allowing you to install this on to pretty any computer cases out there.

Expansion slots include 1 x PCIe 5.0 x16 slot with Surface Mount Tech and reinforced steel, and 1 x standard PCIe 4.0 x1 slot.

For connectivity, it comes with Dragon 2.5G LAN and a 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6E Module, which is more than enough for most users.

You also get a massive 15 USB ports, these include … 2 x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C (1 Rear, 1 Front), 1 x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A (Rear), 6 x USB 3.2 Gen1 (4 Rear, 2 Front) and 6 x USB 2.0 (2 Rear, 4 Front).

For storage, you get 4 x SATA3 ports, and 3 x Hyper M.2 PCIe Gen4x4 slots for your NVMe SSDs. Video output includes 1 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort, and onboard eDP port for ASRock’s external LCD display panel.

And lastly, you get all of ASrock’s unique features such as 2oz copper PCB, 7.1 HD Nahimic audio, Polychrome RGB.

We haven’t reviewed that many micro ATX motherboards, but what I’ve noticed recently, is an increase in its  popularity. Mainly because of the fact that these micro ATX motherboards are fairly compact, and will fit in most cases out there, plus they’re slightly cheaper than their full-size ATX variants.

We’ve only ever tested one other B760 motherboard last year, it was the ASRock B760M PG SONIC WiFi Motherboard. And as the name suggest, it was a Sonic-themed motherboard that offered decent performance but with limited availability. Let’s see if the ASRock B760M Steel Legend WiFi would be a better choice for the mainstream user.


Intel B760 Chipset

Intel’s comprehensive chipset portfolio also includes the Intel® H770 and B760 chipsets that, when paired with Intel’s 13th Gen Intel® Core desktop processors deliver dynamic capabilities and accelerated connectivity. Both chipsets support memory overclocking1 but offer distinct I/O and PCIe processor configurations. The H770 chipset accelerates multi-tasking with greater data throughput capabilities of up to 16 PCIe 4.0 lanes, 8 PCIe 3.0 lanes, bifurcation of the CPU PCIe lanes, and support for SATA and PCIe RAID. The B760 brings up to 10 PCIe 4.0 lanes and 4 PCIe 3.0 lanes for the speed and performance to power modern work needs. Choose the features you need to get the most from your everyday gaming, creating, and productivity.

The B760 chipset allows a total 10 usable PCIE 4.0 lanes, with upto a maximum memory capacity of 128GB. It’s also capable of up to 6 x USB 3.2 Gen1 5Gbps, 4 x USB 3.2 Gen2 10Gbps and up to 2 x USB 3.2 Gen2x2 20Gbps. Strangley no mention of PCIE 5.0 Gen5 support for NVME SSDs.


“Steel Legend represents the philosophical state of rock-solid durability and irresistible aesthetics. Built around most demanding specs and features, the Steel Legend series aims at daily users and mainstream enthusiasts! Providing a strong array of materials/components to ensure a stable and reliable performance.”



I would like to thank ASRock for providing the review sample. This is a snippet from what ASRock has to say about themselves on their website:

ASRock Inc. is established in 2002, specialized in the field of motherboards. ASRock strives to build up its own brand. With the 3C design concept, “Creativity, Consideration, Cost-effectiveness”, the company explores the limit of motherboards manufacturing while paying attention on the eco issue at the same time, developing products with the consideration of eco-friendly concept.


ASRock has been growing fast and become world third largest motherboard brand with headquarter in Taipei, Taiwan and branches in Europe and the USA. The young and vibrant company targets from mainstream to enthusiast MB segments for different kinds of users, owning reputation around the world market with its reliability and proficiency.


We’ll be testing the ASRock B760M Steel Legend WiFi Motherboard using an Intel Core i9-14900K processor at default speed, along with 32GB of Lexar ARES RGB DDR5-7200, a Lexar NM800 2TB Gen4 SSD, and a GeForce RTX 4080 SUPER graphics card.

OK, now let’s dive straight in and start by taking a look at the specifications and features in our next page.

You can buy the ASRock B760M Steel Legend WiFi motherboard for around USD $205 from Amazon –
