Boasting a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions and intelligent tuning options, Prime B560M-A provides daily users and DIY PC builders a range of performance tuning options via intuitive software and firmware features. ASUS Prime B560M-A is perfect for those seeking to create a sleek, futuristic-looking build, thanks to its black and white finish and iridescent metallic nameplate and PCB cover.

Tune It Your Way

Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime B560 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work, to maximize productivity.

Intelligent Control

All-around 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.

Flexible cooling controls

Prime H510 series motherboards offer comprehensive control over system fans, via the included Fan Xpert software. Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click.

Precise Digital Power 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.

Quick and Simple Setup

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.

Cool to the Core

Prime B560 series is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.

Heatsinks

M.2 Heatsink

Flexible M.2 heatsink takes care of two M.2 slots, warding off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfer.

VRM Heatsinks and Thermal Pads

The VRM heatsink with underneath thermal pad improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs for better cooling performance.

Cooler by Design

Prime B560 series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert software or via the UEFI BIOS.  

Multiple Temperature Sources

Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 2+ allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.

Smart Protection

A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent.

4-Pin PWM/DC Fan

Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Build on a Solid Foundation

Prime B560 series is built to handle the additional cores and increased bandwidth of 11th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. ASUS B560 motherboards provide all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options.

Memory

ASUS OptiMem II

Revisions to the motherboard's trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.

Benefits of ASUS OptiMem II:

  • Improved memory stability and compatibility
  • Allows lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages
  • Improved memory frequency margin

Motherboards with OptiMem II technology were tested with Synopsys HSPICE simulation software

Storage

Two M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps)

Prime B560M-A offers a total of two M.2 slots, with one slot supporting data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCI Express® 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.

* Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.

** The M.2_1 supports PCIe 4.0, and the M.2_2 supports PCIe 3.0.

Connectivity

PCIe® 4.0 Slot

ASUS B560 motherboards are designed specifically for 11th Generation Intel® Core™ CPUs and offer PCIe® 4.0 connectivity for the latest GPUs. The wide bandwidth and superfast transmission speeds allow you to create feature-rich builds that can handle high loads effortlessly.

Intel® 1 Gb Ethernet

Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.

USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C®

Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including rear USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C® port , transmission speeds up to 10 Gbps.

V-M.2 Slot Key E for Wi-Fi

PRIME B560M-A comes along with an vertical M.2 (Key E) slot and ASUS exclusive Wi-Fi card holder which provide you the flexibility to upgrade your networking solution by installing an M.2 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module.

Little Details Make a Big Difference

Prime B560 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 uniquely 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.

Armoury Crate

Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate allows you to easily customize RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your arsenal. The software also provides control of settings for an ever-growing number of ASUS products, including keyboard and mouse preferences. Armoury Crate even features dedicated product registration and news to help you stay in touch with the ASUS community.

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.

Overvoltage Protection

World-class circuit-protecting power design

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

DRAM Overcurrent Protection

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.

LANGuard

Pumped-up throughput 2.5X higher surge tolerance

ASUS LANGuard is a hardware-level network protection feature that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput and ensure a more reliable connection.
