ASRock Phantom Gaming B760I Lightning WiFi Motherboard Review

Today, we’ll be taking a look at the ASRock Phantom Gaming B760I Lightning WiFi motherboard. It’s a compact, feature-rich gaming motherboard that’s comes in a Mini-ITX Form Factor measuring just 17 x 17cm.

It features a rock solid 14+1+1 Power Phase Design with SPS for Vcore+GT, and it’s cooled with a composite VRM heatsink combining a cooling fan, and a large aluminum heatsink with heat pipe for maximum heat dissipation.

It’s compatible for all Intel 12th Gen, 13th Gen and the latest 14th Gen processors on the LGA 1700 socket, and supports DDR5 ram with speeds of up to DDR5-8600+ OC.

Expansion slot includes 1 x PCIE 5.0 x16 slot with re-inforced steel and surface mount technology. For connectivity, it comes with ASRock’s Phantom Gaming 2.5GbE LAN and support for WiFi 6E.

And for storage, you get 3 SATA ports and 2 x Hyper M.2 PCIE Gen4x4 slots for SSDs, which should be enough for most users.

And lastly, you get all of ASRock’s unique features including the 7.1 HD Nahimic audio, 8-layer 2oz Copper PCB, and Polychrome RGB.

As you know, I love mini-ITX motherboards. I’m just amazed by how you can pack all the latest technologies in to such a small package. Most of the custom scratch PC builds that I’ve seen uses mini-ITX motherboards due to its size and versatility. You literally put this board in to any chassis, custom-built or otherwise.

One interesting feature about the ASRock Phantom Gaming B760I Lightning WiFi motherboard, is the ability to support memory up to DDR5-8600+ OC. That’s just unheard of for a mini-ITX board, as most higher speed memory can only work on high-end enthusiast motherboards.

Let’s continue and find out more about the Intel B760 chipset …
