The 24pin ATX connector is joined by the front panel USB 3.2G2 Type-C. The Type-A is elsewhere as we'll soon discover.

With just two M.2 slots the likelihood is that you'll be taking full advantage of the eight SATA ports on the Strix X570-E.

The bottom right corner of the Strix X570-E Gaming II is a busy place indeed. From right to left we have the front panel connections that plumb your case in to the beating heart of your rig. Next to those are the other two AURA headers, then three fans for maximum cool air intake with the minimum of cable managment fuss. Oddly the Type-A front panel USB header is here in the middle of the lower edge, so you might need to double check your case's cable length.

Another slightly strange choice of placement is to be found next to the two USB 2.0 headers. The 7 segment display for your POST codes is beneath the bottom PCI Expres slot. If you fancy running your GPU in a non-standard orientation off a riser cable then you'll never be able to see it. Maybe ASUS are just that confident that you'll never encounter an error.

If your case is the standard design utilising a rear exhaust fan then this handy fan header placement will keep your cable spaghetti to a minimum.

Beneath the chunky, familiar, heatsinks is the 14+2 power phase section. ASUS don't specify the Ampage rating, but we know that the Ryzen 5000 processors aren't overly demanding so whatever it is it should be more than enough.

Around the back we have a selection of high speed USB ports alongside three different networking options - 1G, 2.5G and Wi-Fi 6E - and the jacks for the SupremeFX audio.
