Packaging and Contents
The front of the ASRock Z490 Phantom Gaming ITX/TB3 box features a gray and black background with a nicely textured appearance. "Z490 Phantom Gaming ITX/TB3" is in the bottom right, with brand badging below it along the bottom-right edge. "ASRock" is in the top-left corner. The center of the box is dominated by a large silver and red Phantom Gaming logo.
The back of the box has all the highlights: a top-down shot of the board, several panels detailing prominent features, a diagram outlining the rear I/O, and the specifications list. The box design is well executed and matches the board nicely.
The accessories are those you would expect, with the addition of a pair of Velcro cable ties. Notably absent is any kind of rear I/O shield because the shield is integrated into the board.
The full list of accessories includes:
- Manual, software setup guide, and support DVD
- Postcard and Velcro cable ties
- 2x SATA 6 Gb/s cables
- 2x M.2 mounting screws
- WiFi antenna
