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.

ESD Guards

Electrostatic discharge protection

ASUS ESD Guards prevent damage from electrostatic discharge, up to +/- 10kV for air discharge and +/- 6kV for contact discharge, arranged in an active-protective-circuit design that prolongs the life of components.

Proven Compatibility

Tested to be compatible with 1,000+ CPUs, DDR4 memory modules, graphics cards and more

Having the freedom to pick and choose the parts that go into your machine is at the heart of PC DIY.

Do you have you a question about the Asus Prime A320M-K AMD AM4 A320 Motherboard (mATX) RAID LAN (Radeon R Series)?

Q: is this memory compatible CMK8GX4M1D3000C16 Thanks
Post Answer
Q: Does the motherboard work with an Athlon 200GE CPU out of the box? According to ASUS the BIOS version needs to be at least 4011. Thanks
Answer by Website User on 30th May 2019
We would need to update the BIOS before shipment. Please contact our sales team on 01274 471201 straight after you have placed your order so we can arrange this. If you are buying the motherboard on its own, we will need to charge £10 for the BIOS update. If you are buying the CPU with the motherboard then the BIOS update will be free.
