ASRock Industrial’s new iBOX 1200 line of computers are compact desktop PCs with fanless designs and 12th-gen Intel Core “Alder Lake” processors. Measuring 6.8″ x 4.3″ x 2″, these mini PCs are small enough to attach to the back of a display or mount to a wall, but powerful enough to drive up to four displays.

Available with up to an Intel Core i7-1265UE processor, the computers support up to 64GB of RAM and dual storage devices and have a generous array of ports.


These aren’t the first ASRock mini PCs to feature Intel Alder Lake processors – earlier this month the company introduced the NUC 1200 BOX series. Those models are both smaller and more powerful, with support for up to an Intel Core i7-1260P processor. But that’s because they’re actively cooled with a fan inside the chassis.

ASRock is positioning the iBOX 1200 series as a line of fanless embedded systems designed for silent operation, since there are no moving parts.

The company offers three models:

Each model has two SODIMM slots for up to 64GB of total DDR4-3200 memory, an M.2 2280 slot for PCIe Gen 4 x4 storage and a connector for a SATA 3.0 hard drive or SSD. There’s also an M.2 2230 key for a wireless card, and a set of ports that includes:

  • 1 x HDMI 2.0b
  • 1 x DisplayPort 1.4a
  • 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C (w/DisplayPort 1.4a support)
  • 4 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
  • 2 x USB 2.0 Type-A
  • 1 x 2.5 Gbps Ethernet
  • 1 x Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1 x mic/headphone jack
  • 1 x RS-232

The computer has an aluminum chassis and comes with a 19V/90W power supply and wall mount kit. ASRock says the iBOX 1200 officially supports Windows 10 and Windows 11, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t support Linux or other operating systems that are compatible with 12th-gen Intel chips.

  1. No HDMI 2.1 support is a deal killer. 4k 24p video playback is annoying at 4k/60 as it doesn’t divide properly.
