Carrying on around the PCB the front panel USB ports are in both Type-A and Type-C styles for those of you with more recent chassis that have a Type-C on the front of the case.

Continuing around we have four SATA ports - thankfully horizontal - a system fan header, two more SATA ports vertically mounted for those of you with plenty of drives on hand, the USB 2.0 headers which control many of our RGB devices and a PCI Express 6 pin power input should you require a little more juice.

At the bottom left after the PCIe power input is an onboard LED toggle, a couple of fan headers and the Mystic Light RGB headers in both regular and addressable types.

Tucked away below the rear panel heatsink is another system fan header, perfect for your case exhaust.

From top to bottom we have 4 USB 2.0 ports, a Displayport and HDMI for those with integrated graphics, 2.5G LAN port sitting alongside 4 USB 3.2G1 Type-A connections, which themselves are above the USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C for all your 20G speed needs. Lastly the WiFi antenna ports and audio jacks complete the back panel.

Lastly the girth of the heatsink should give you a clue as to the level of power phases lurking beneath. In the case of the B560 Tomahawk WiFi that is a 12+2+1 setup with the core phase consisting of 6 parallel Sinopower SM4337NSKPC-TRG 55A and SM4503NHKPC-TRG 80A MOSFETs. The GT is one of each to make up the two phase power, whilst the SA is a A&O AOZ5516 55A DrMOS arrangement. Controlling all this is the Renesas RAA2290001 controller for the Core and GT phases, whilst the Richtek 3651EF handles the SA.
