Packaging & Accessories

Now that we have gone over the X370GTN's features and specifications in the intro, it is time to examine the packaging and then crack open the box to take a look at the bundled accessories. Let's check it out:

Although it's not evident in these pictures, the box that the Biostar X370GTN ships it is larger than you would expect at 11" x 10.5" x 2.5". We suspect that it was actually designed for Micro ATX motherboards, but is now pulling double duty for Biostar's Mini ITX models as well.

Much like the rest of the Biostar Racing motherboard lineup, the X370GTN's packaging has a carbon fiber look, a Tron-line car silhouette, and a World of Tanks offer in the top right corner. On the back of the box, you will find a decent amount of information about the interesting features that have been packed onto this model, as well as a handy rear I/O panel diagram and an abbreviated specifications list.

When you open the packaging you can see that motherboard is held in place and protected by a good amount of cardboard on all sides, which makes sense if our assumption about the packaging being for a Micro ATX motherboard is indeed true. The bottom half contains the small handful of accessories, the manual, a pamphlet, and the installation DVD.

The motherboard itself is wrapped in an anti-static bag, but the nice little bonus is that there's also a foam pad under the motherboard to protect the solder points, traces, and any rear-mounted components.

The simple accessories bundle consists of the usual manual, a Vivid LED DJ pamphlet, a driver & software DVD, four SATA 6Gb/s cables, and a rear I/O shield.
