Tune It Your Way

Improved DDR4 Stability
ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology trace layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements allow the Prime 300 Series to support a wide range of dual and quad-DIMM memory kits, while providing your rig with the stability it needs to deal with any type of workload - whether you're gaming or running intensive applications.

All-round Energy Efficiency
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode - a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.

Flexible Cooling Controls
Prime 300 Series motherboards offer comprehensive control over system fans, via the included Fan Expert 2+ software. Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click.

Cooler by Design

Prime 300 Series features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via ASUS Fan Xpert software or the UEFI BIOS.

  • Multiple temperature sources
  • 4-pin PWM/DC fan

Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS
The UEFI BIOS is an early waypoint on any PC-building journey, and Prime 300 Series has one of the best in the business.

VRM Heatsink and Thermal Pads
A massive VRM heatsink and high-quality thermal pads enhance heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance. A fan holder is bundled for additional cooling options.

Q-Fan Control
Can configure the fan's operating speed manually, or use the easy pre-configured fan profiles to select Standard, Silent, Turbo or Full Speed modes, plus automatic switch to full speed if the temperature hits 75°C.

EZ Mode
Designed to simplify setup, EZ mode presents all the vital settings and stats on one single page. With guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings, your rig will be up and running in no time.

Ultrafast Connectivity

USB 3.1 Gen 1 Front-panel Connector
USB 3.1 Gen 1 is right where you need it, with two super-speed headers for the front panel. Experience data-transfer speeds up to 10X faster than USB 2.0 with instant plug-and-play connectivity, and avoid back-breaking contortions in the hunt for hard-to-reach rear ports.

* Specifications and features vary by model, and all images are illustrative. Please refer specification pages for full details.

M.2
With x4 PCI Express® 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds. It's the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, providing fast access to data.

Reliable Stability and Compatibility

SafeSlot
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

Built to Last
ASUS is the world's leading motherboard brand. Our motherboards are extensively tested for compatibility with more than 1,000 components and devices, and each new model undergoes a minimum of 8,000 hours of strict validation - offering the peace of mind of knowing that your ASUS motherboard is fit for all environments and applications. Choosing ASUS is an assurance of trouble-free DIY experiences.

5X Protection III

Prime 300 Series motherboards are engineered with industry-leading 5X Protection III, employing the finest components, excellent circuit design and exacting standards to guarantee the quality and long-term durability of your investment. That means exceptional protection and stability for your build - thanks to decades of engineering experience from the world's leading motherboard brand.

SafeSlot Core
SafeSlot Core is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe® slot. Featuring a fortified design that's anchored to the motherboard by a special hook, Safeslot Core provides 1.6X-stronger retention and 1.3X-greater shearing resistance than standard expansion slots.

Our Prime 300 Series motherboards also have strengthened solder points around both the PCIe and DIMM pins.

LANGuard
ASUS LANGuard is hardware-level networking protection that employs signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to ensure a more reliable connection and better throughput.

Overvoltage Protection
An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators protects your motherboard from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies.

DIGI+ VRM
ASUS-exclusive DIGI+ VRM intelligently delivers power to the processor based on real-time demands, reducing energy waste and improving system stability.

DRAM Overcurrent Protection
Corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide assure a lifespan that's 3X longer than ordinary panels.

ESD Guards
ASUS ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10kV of air discharge and +/- 6kV of contact discharge.

Upgrade to Unrivalled 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 audio capacitors: Premium parts provide an immersive sound signature, with exceptional fidelity.

Aura Sync

A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura Sync offers full lighting connected via the motherboard's RGB header, with a variety of functional presets for external LED strips.* And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.
