There's no better way to kick off 2019 with the launch of new products, the motherboards featuring Intel B365 chipset launched during CES 2019 aims mostly at mainstream market but with huge improvement on not only functionality but also aesthetics, the product line are formed by total of 5 motherboards including Mini-ITX, the ever popular PRO series and the latest Phantom Gaming motherboards, giving a wide range of selection for everyone.

As M.2 NVMe SSDs get ever more attractive through affordability, capacity and performance, it is certain that these lightning fast storage devices will soon be a must have solution for gaming or even everyday use. ASRock has seen this trend and went all out to be the first to include the M.2 heatsink as standard equipment for the mainstream motherboard, the B365 Phantom Gaming 4 even has two separate M.2 heatsink for secondary high speed M.2 SSDs.



Fancy RGB lighting has become a trend of personalizing your own computer, with ASRock B365 Phantom Gaming & PRO series motherboard, you may customize your PC with Polychrome SYNC full-color RGB LED lighting, providing both 3-pin addressable RGB header and traditional 4-pin RGB LED headers that allow users to connect RGB strips directly to the motherboard and sync their lighting system using the app provided.

ASRock has redefined the rule and give the most it can offer while creating the brand new B365 motherboard series, with the improvement of functionality and aesthetics, they're definitely the ideal solution for your new PC, with total of 6 motherboards that covers from Mini-ITX to full size ATX, ASRock has the right product for everyone.

Asus APEX may have been the inspiration for that Gaming model.. :rolleyes: At least there's some angled SATA connectors unlike the Asus B365 models posted earlier.

It's not only the Apex boards that have a non-standard PCB shape. Asus has recently also started to apply it in the TUF series ;)

Ah! TUF boards haven't been interesting after they lost that premium status after Sabertooth boards. :p

Still, the colors of that Gaming boards brings immediatelly Apex boards to my mind. :D

I think for me the most interesting part about these new B365 boards is not extra PCIe lanes or absent USB3.1, but rather RAID support out of the box (both PCIe NVME and SATA).
Would be an interesting option for a future work PC upgrade, if I don't go team Red before it becomes available.

Are this able to feed a 9900k ?
Yes. It's in QVL.
