Engineered with military-grade components, an upgraded power solution and a comprehensive cooling system, this motherboard goes beyond expectations with rock-solid performance for marathon gaming. TUF GAMING motherboards also undergo rigorous endurance testing to ensure that they can handle conditions where others may fail. Aesthetically, this model incorporates an embossed nameplate and honeycomb design elements to reflect the dependability and stability that defines the TUF GAMING series.
AI Cooling II
Balance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. An ASUS-exclusive algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then it monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.
All Around Efficiency
The Power Saving function contains several settings that can easily optimise power consumption and maximise energy savings. You can enable a CPU power limit, darken Aura lighting, and set the fan profile to a power saving mode. You can also toggle the Power Saver plan that is built into Microsoft Windows.
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 and comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
EZ mode displays vital settings and stats, and it 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.
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.
Asus Armory Crate
The ASUS-exclusive Armoury Crate software centralises control of all supported gaming products. A single intuitive interface lets you customise RGB lighting for all compatible devices and link them to Aura Sync for unified illumination. It also displays information from, and enables control of, a growing hardware ecosystem. Armoury Crate also enables easy product registration and features a news section to keep you in touch with the gaming community.
DRMOS Power Stages
16+1 power stages are each rated to handle 60 amperes, combining high-side and low-side MOSFETS and drivers into a single package to deliver power, efficiency and stable performance for all compatible Intel processors.
8+4 pin ProCool Power Connectors
Compared to most power inputs, ASUS ProCool connectors are built to tight specifications to ensure full contact with PSU power cables. The resulting lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and connector failure.
Incredibly durable military-grade components including chokes and capacitors which offer fantastic stability and long life.
The integrated Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, optimised for ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
PCIe 5.0 Ready
The four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots support up to two 22110 devices and also provide NVMe SSD RAID support for incredible performance potential. Create a RAID configuration with up to four PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data transfer speeds.
Keep Your Components Cool
Enlarged VRM Heatsink
The extensive surface area of this heatsink covers the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation.
Superb PCH Heatsink
An expanded surface area for the chipset cooler maximizes system performance and heat dissipation.
M.2 Heatsink Design
Three of the four M.2 slots have dedicated heatsinks to help keep M.2 SSDs at optimal operating temperatures and ensure consistent performance and reliability.
Comprehensive Fan Controls
TUF GAMING B650 motherboards feature comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 4 utility in Armoury Crate or the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.
Multiple Temperature Sources
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or via the UEFI.
An integrated AiO system enables full control of PWM or DC water pumps, making it perfect for custom or self-contained cooling setups.
Smart Fan Protection
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from excess heat and electrical currents.
4-pin PWM Fan Headers
Every onboard header auto-detects any PWM or DC fan.
