Features

Tune It Your Way

Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime B450M II motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling you to tweak performance settings to perfectly match the way you work – maximizing your productivity.

Intelligent Control

  • EPU: All-around Energy Efficiency
    With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU), you will enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode.
  • Fan Xpert 2+
    Fan Xpert 2+ software provides comprehensive control over system fans. Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces chassis fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.
  • Digi+ VRM Control
    The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

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.
  • EZ Mode
    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.

Cooler by Design

Prime B450M-A II is engineered with an array of hybrid fan headers and features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 2+ software or via the UEFI BIOS, ensuring your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.

Build on a Solid Foundation

Prime B450M II motherboard provides all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options.

PCIe 3.0 M.2 (Up to 32 Gbps)

Achieve speed with onboard M.2 - M.2 Slot supports up to 22110 and data-transfer speed up to 32Gbps via x4 PCI Express® 3.0 bandwidth. It's the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, providing fast access to data.

USB 3.2 Gen2 Type A

Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including two rear-panel USB Type-A connectors with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.

Little Things Make a Big Difference

Prime B450M II 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 unique 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

A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for RGB LED strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
