ASRock announces DeskMini Max barebone mini PC system supporting liquid cooling and AMD Ryzen 5000 processors
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.
