What's Hot

Lots of features: The motherboard has many features, many more than you might think. You get two internal USB 3.0 headers, an internal type-C header, and two extra SATA ports. It also offers the infrastructure to upgrade to WIFI, and it features VGA, DP, and HDMI.

Triple M.2 slots: ASRock put in a whopping three M.2 slots, and in this day and age it seems they didn't remove one as many other vendors have done. That means you can utilize three of the latest M.2 drives for super-fast storage.

Aesthetics: ASRock's use of the PCB silkscreen to enhance the look of the motherboard is solid, and matches the heat sinks. The motherboard also has a bunch of RGB LEDs, as well as two RGB headers and an addressable RGB LED header.

What's Not

Little low on USB on Rear IO: The motherboard has only five type-A USB ports on the rear IO, and four are USB 3.0. We like to see more, especially with space given to a VGA port and WIFI bracket that most people won't use.

Final Thoughts

Many people don't want to spend over $200 on a motherboard for their CPU, and if you are one of those people the Z390 Extreme4 might be the perfect motherboard for you. It offers a very large variety of features, and decent quality design all-in-one.

The motherboard also looks pretty good, with heat sinks and shields, and it includes built-in RGB LEDs as well as headers for both RGB LEDs and addressable RGB LEDs. If you are in the market for a Z390 motherboard with a lot of value, give the Z390 Extreme4 a look.
