ASRock M8 Mini-ITX Z87 Barebones System Review

box-front box-rear

ASRock ships the M8 in a black box that features computer-generated graphics of the system and information regarding its specifications.

A plastic carrying handle allows users to easily carry their M8 system to wherever it is required.


Supplied documentation consists of a driver CD, product guide, installation poster, and 3 month subscription to the live-streaming X Split service.

The installation poster features plenty of directions and tips in a black and white form. For the most part, the directions are actually clear and easy to understand, which is somewhat surprising with a Mini-ITX system of this nature.


ASRock provides the usual accessories such as SATA cables and mounting screws. A power cord is also supplied as the system uses a 3-prong version, rather than the more common kettle-style lead.

A hex-tool and screwdriver (which looks like a pen) ensure that installation can be completed without the requirement of separate tools.

The bundle consists of:

  • 4x long SATA cables.
  • 2x short SATA cables.
  • 1x 3-prong power lead.
  • Mounting screws.
  • 1x screwdriver tool.
  • 1x hex-tool.
  • 4x rubber strips.
  • 2x keys (for the chassis lock).
  • 1x wide VGA card support bracket.
