Having our first proper look at the board, we can see the heatsinks are of a light silvery colour while the PCB is black. This should still allow the B560M MORTAR WIFI to fit in with most build colour schemes with ease. We can also see at first glance this board should have most of the ports/headers/connections users will need to make the most out of the B560 chipset. We have dual M.2 slots, one of which is Gen4. We also have a few of each RGB and fan headers to make sure that we can keep our build as cool as possible, in both senses of the word ‘cool’.

There are some obvious features missing from using a B560 motherboard and a Micro-ATX variant at that, but this may not matter to many enthusiasts who are simply wanting to indulge in Intel’s Rocket Lake without having it hit their wallet hard.
