ASRock Z490 Steel Legend Motherboard Review

Installation

I didn’t encounter any issues with installation. As you can see below, there’s plenty of room for mounting a large AIO cooler, and it should fit any large graphics card.  

The first M.2 slot can be accessed with ease, even if you’ve already mounted a large graphics card. And that’s something I like about this board. For the other M.2 slot … the large heat shield needs to be removed first. 

 

BIOS

Normally the menu for the UEFI BIOS on ASRock motherboards has a red-colour theme. Not for the Steel Legend … it’s distinctively blue. The Easy Mode shows current motherboard and CPU settings including temperatures, voltages, fan speeds and memory speeds.

In Advance Mode, you can adjust a variety of settings in the BIOS, including CPU ratios, memory speeds, voltages and more.
