Compared to the previous AMD-based mini PC barebones, the new DesktopMini Max from ASRock is considerably larger and allows users to install liquid coolers and larger dGPUs. The included AM4 motherboard supports AMD Ryzen 5000 all the way down to Ryzen 2000 processors that can be coupled with up to 128 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM.

ASRock is introducing a new mini PC barebone system called the DeskMini Max, which is substantially larger than any previous models. The DeskMini Max features a semi-custom 10 liter case that can be fitted with liquid cooling and a graphics card that is at most 20 cm long. It only supports AMD processors and can be easily assembled and upgraded.

The included AM4 motherboard supports Ryzen CPUs or APUs with up to 105 W TDP ranging from the new 5000-series down to the 2000-series. Users can install up to 128 GB of RAM through 4x U-DIMMs and the storage side supports 2x SATA plus 1x M.2 NVMe SSD configurations. Port selection is quite robust, offering triple video outputs through DP, HDMI and D-Sub connectors, and there are 4x USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 and 4x USB 2.0 connectors, as well. It also features a GbE NIC with jack and a free M.2 slot for Wi-Fi 6 + BT modules.

Furthermore, ASRock includes a 500 W 80 Plus bronze certified PSU with customized cable length, but it looks to be a no-name model and users probably need to replace it with something better when equipping the system with a more powerful processor+dGPU combo. No pricing or availability for now.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
