Final Thoughts & Conclusion

ASRock Z490 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 Review 1

Like we said in the intro of this article, ASRock has a habit of going all-in on ITX boards, even when no one else will and we find yet again they haven’t lost their edge. The Z490 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 offers everything a power user could possibly want in a pint-sized package. Solid power delivery provides great overclocking capability which pretty well ices the cake. Active cooling on the VRM heat-sinks stay all but inaudible, even while overclocking, and the heat-sinks themselves barely get warm, unlike many small boards that will almost burn you after a long render. Connectivity outclasses most full-size systems with Thunderbolt 3, USB 3 10Gbps, 2.5Gbps LAN, and the latest WiFi-6 connectivity. Actually, that verb is probably the most appropriate description of the Phantom Gaming ITX/TB3 – Outclass. Nothing else really needs to be said.

Great Job ASRock!
