ASUS Prime series motherboards are expertly engineered to unleash the full potential of 10th and 11th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. Boasting a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions and intelligent tuning options, PRIME B560-PLUS provides daily users and DIY PC builders a range of performance tuning options via intuitive software and firmware features. Tune It Your Way Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime B560 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work, to maximize productivity. UEFI BIOS The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans. Advanced Tuning for Serious Tweakers An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want. Search Function Quickly and easily find the option or setting you need. ASUS User Profile Port configuration settings between different BIOS versions or share them with friends. Quick and Simple Setup EZ mode displays vital settings and stats and also offers guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings — all to help you get your rig up and running in no time. Intuitive Graphical Fan Control Fine-tune individual fan settings simply by dragging a curve with the mouse. EZ XMP Improve DRAM performance with one click. Aura On/Off Mode (Stealth) Easily enable or disable Aura RGB lighting or every onboard LED, for a subdued aesthetic touch. Cool to the Core Prime B560 series is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads. M.2 Heatsink An M.2 heatsink takes care of the two M.2 slots, warding off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfers. The heatsink is held in place by captive screws and can be moved to other M.2 slot. VRM Heatsinks and Thermal Pads Two massive VRM heatsinks and thermal pads improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance. Cooler by Design Prime B560 series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 2+ software or via the UEFI BIOS. Multiple Temperature Sources Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 2+ allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks. Smart Protection A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent. 4-Pin PWM/DC Fan Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans. Build on a Solid Foundation Prime B560 series is built to handle the additional cores and increased bandwidth of 11th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. ASUS B560 motherboards provide all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options. ASUS OptiMem Revisions to the motherboard's trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. ASUS OptiMem benefits: - Improved memory stability and compatibility - Allows lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages - Improved memory frequency margin Dual M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps) PRIME B560-PLUS offers a total of two M.2 slots, with one slot supporting data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCI Express® 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives. PCIe® 4.0 Slot ASUS B560 motherboards are designed specifically for 11th Generation Intel® Core™ CPUs and offer PCIe® 4.0 connectivity for the latest GPUs. The wide bandwidth and superfast transmission speeds allow you to create feature-rich builds that can handle high loads effortlessly. USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including a rear-panel USB Type-A connectors with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases. Thunderbolt™ 4 header Support Prime B560-PLUS features Thunderbolt™ 4 support via an on-board header. With the latest Intel-certified ASUS TunderboltEX 4 add-on card, it can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to an 8K resolution display. It can also provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices. Small Details Make a Big Difference Prime B560 series adds the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls that let you customize your system to create a uniquely personal look. Outstanding Audio Combined onboard features deliver elevated audio Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything you've ever experienced. Audio Shielding Separates analog/digital signal domains, significantly reducing multi-lateral interference. Separate Layer for Left and Right Tracks Ensures minimal crosstalk between audio paths. Premium Japanese Capacitors Premium parts provide an immersive sound signature, with exceptional fidelity. Aura Sync Outshine the Competition A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the strips connected to the onboard RGB headers — and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware. Addressable Gen 2 RGB Header Two addressable Gen 2 RGB headers are capable of detecting the number of LEDs on second-gen addressable RGB devices, allowing the software to automatically tailor lighting effects to specific devices. The new headers also offer backward-compatibility with existing Aura RGB gear. Armoury Crate Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate allows you to easily customize RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal. The software also provides control of settings for an ever-growing number of ASUS products, including keyboard and mouse preferences. Armoury Crate even features dedicated product registration and news to help you stay in touch with the ASUS community. SafeSlot Core+ SafeSlot Core+ is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot fortified with a one-piece stainless-steel brace that shields the slot to protect it from damage. The metal cover is tightly secured to the slot with hooks, and the entire assembly is firmly anchored to the PCB with strengthened solder points to provide a secure foundation for heavyweight graphics cards. LANGuard Pumped-up throughput 2.5X higher surge tolerance ASUS LANGuard is a hardware-level network protection feature that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput and ensure a more reliable connection. Overvoltage Protection World-class circuit-protecting power design An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your motherboard from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies. DRAM Overcurrent Protection Short-circuit damage prevention Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices. Stainless-Steel Back I/O 3X corrosion-resistance for greater durability Corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's three times longer than ordinary panels. 1000+ Compatible devices and components The Prime B560 series provides superior compatibility with thousands of components and our Qualified Vendor List (QVL) identifies memory compatibility, giving you more choices for worry-free PC-building experiences. 8000+ Validation hours Every ASUS motherboard is subjected to more than 8,000 hours of stringent tests, including burn-in, environmental, compatibility, software and safety tests to confirm their durability.
