Packaging and Overview
The box is simple, much like other Supermicro newer generation boxes. Packaging is decent.
The accessory package includes WIFI antenna, two SATA6Gb/s cables, rear IO shield, cable stickers, manual, and driver DVD.
Supermicro has two fan headers on this motherboard, both are located at the top and both support 4-pin PWN fans with up to 2A of current. While two headers is common for many mini-ITX motherboards, we would have liked to see more, but the good news is that with 2A on each header, you can use a splitter. The motherboard keeps the same black and silver aesthetic as the Z370 version of this motherboard. The back of the motherboard has components and one M.2 slot.
The rear IO panel features WIFI antenna, four USB 3.1 ports (three type-A one type-C), two USB 3.0 ports, PS/2 keyboard/mouse, DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0, Gbit LAN, and 7.1 audio outputs with S/PDIF out.
There are two M.2 slots, one on the top and one on the bottom. The one on the top supports PCI-E 3.0 x4 and SATA, while the one on the bottom only support PCI-E x4. There is also a USB 3.1 internal type-C header located right below the CPU socket.
The motherboard features four SATA6Gb/s ports, a USB 3.0 internal header, an a BIOS ROM that is replaceable. The front panel headers are located at the top of the motherboard near an RGB LED header. There are also boot LEDs to the right of the memory DIMMs.
The motherboard features an 8-pin CPU power plug. The heat sinks are solid, and we will see how they do, but contact pressure was quite high.
