Motherboard BIOS Update

ASUS Prime B450 Series motherboards provide the solid foundation needed for your first build, plus flexibility to grow with your ambitions. We've melded all the good stuff that's packed into AMD Ryzen™ processors with essential ASUS design and engineering, so you benefit from industry-leading technologies — including automated system tuning, comprehensive cooling controls, and immersive onboard audio. When you build with an ASUS Prime B450 Series motherboard, you build smart, easy and affordably.

Tune it your way

Cooler by design

Prime B450 Series features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via ASUS Fan Xpert software or the UEFI BIOS

Make your memory faster

Featuring an array of trace layout tweaks that improve memory stability, PRIME B450 Series provides a potent foundation for your build. With comprehensive support for the full gamut of Ryzen memory configurations – from entry-level to performance-oriented — PRIME B450 Series is a versatile all-rounder that can work or play.

Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS

The UEFI BIOS is an early waypoint on any PC-building journey, and Prime B450 Series has one of the best in the business.

Ultrafast connectivity

USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A

Ultimate-speed 10Gbps with USB 3.1 Gen 2 onboard

With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A™, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps — twice as fast as standard USB 3.1 Gen 1.

USB 3.1 Gen 1 front-panel connector

Future-proof connectivity

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.

M.2

Speed up with onboard 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.

AMD StoreMI

Affordable acceleration for any hard drive

AMD StoreMI technology is a software utility that accelerates any drive for better system responsiveness with reduced startup and software load times. It combines SSD performance with the affordability and capacity of an HDD by automatically moving frequently accessed data to dedicated SSD storage.

Native M.2/NVMe PCIe RAID Support for Lightning Fast Storage Speed!

Not satisfied with single-storage device read/write speeds? Then join the fast lane and build a RAID 0 array using two PCIe storage drives to enjoy data transfers at lightning speeds.

Reliable stability and compatibility

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 B450 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.

Visual beauty, virtual worlds

Aura Sync

Outshine the competition

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.

* The Aura RGB-strip header supports 5050 RGB LED strips with a max power rating of 3A (12V). For maximum brightness, strip length should not exceed 3m. LED strips and Aura Sync-compatible devices are sold separately.

Main Features

  • Fan Xpert 2+: Flexible controls for ultimate cooling and silence, plus GPU-temperature sensing for cooler gaming
  • Ultrafast connectivity: Supreme flexibility with USB 3.1 Gen 2 and native M.2
  • ASUS Aura Sync header: Onboard connector for RGB LED strips, easily synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura Sync-capable hardware
  • 5X Protection III: Multiple hardware safeguards for all-around system protection
