ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming ITX/TB3 Motherboard Review

Conclusion and Verdict

ASRock keeps delivering outstanding products. Each our review shows amazing motherboards which are a hard competition on the current market. The same is with the X570 Phantom Gaming TB3/ITX. The motherboard is exceptional and brings some original ideas which are hard to find in competitive motherboards. There were no problems with stability or compatibility during all our tests. The motherboard has a robust ten-phase design which handles all AMD Ryzen 3000 processors and high-speed memory up to DDR4-4600+.

There is only one thing which may cause problems, and it’s a requirement to use Intel mounting holes for the CPU cooler. At first great idea as it saves space what is really important on a mini-ITX motherboard. On the other hand, users can have problems to find a perfect cooler for their needs or use a cooler which they had in the older PC. My advice is to check the QVL for compatible coolers, and there won’t be any problem.

 

 

The X570 Phantom Gaming TB3/ITX is actually one of only a few mini-ITX motherboards that uses the X570 chipset. Not many manufacturers like to to release mini ITX motherboards. It’s a niche market, but ASRock is ready to take up the challenge and what’s more, it came on top and delivered a great product.

Motherboard’s design is another thing. The X570 PG TB3/ITX is clearly a gaming product, and it fits well with all the features and color theme. It’s an exceptional performer so gamers should be satisfied with what it has to offer.

ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming TB3/ITX is covered by a three-year warranty and is available in all larger online stores. Amazon is selling ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming TB3/ITX motherboard for around $286. There are cheaper motherboards on the market but not in mini-ITX form factor. Additional devices like WiFi or Thunderbolt are also raising the price. I think the price is quite reasonable, looking at the X570 motherboards market.

 

Pros:

  • High performance
  • High quality
  • Great BIOS
  • Reasonable price comparing to competition
  • High overclocking potential
  • Original design
  • AX WiFi, USB 3.2 and Thunderbolt 3 support

 

Cons:

  • Tall heatsinks cause problems with many popular coolers / Limited amount of compatible coolers

 

Final words:

With such limited options on the market, it’s even easier to recommend the X570 Phantom Gaming TB3/ITX motherboard. It’s fast, looks fantastic and has many gamer-oriented features. It’s another exceptional motherboard from ASRock that offers great performance at a reasonable price.

ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming TB3/ITX will, for sure satisfy all gamers, especially those who are looking for a small factor gaming PC. It’s clear that the X570 Phantom Gaming TB3/ITX deserves our Recommended Award!
