Intelligent ASUS Prime Control
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.
ALL-AROUND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes energy savings with Away mode – a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
FLEXIBLE COOLING WITH FAN XPERT 2+
Prime 500 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.
DIGI+ VRM 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.
Cooler by Design
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.
Cool to the Core
M.2 HEATSINK, PLUS THERMAL PADS AND VRM HEATSINK
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. An M.2 heatsink takes care of the two M.2 slots, warding off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfers. The heatsink is held in place by captive screws and can be moved to other M.2 slot. Includes Two massive VRM heatsinks and thermal pads to improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.
Outshine the Competition
CONTROL SETTINGS FOR AN EVER-GROWING NUMBER OF ASUS PRODUCTS
A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the strips connected to the onboard RGB headers – and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware. Two addressable Gen 2 RGB headers are capable of detecting the number of LEDs on second-gen addressable RGB devices, allowing the software to automatically tailor lighting effects to specific devices. The new headers also offer backward-compatibility with existing Aura RGB gear. 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.
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. Revisions to the motherboard's trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Unbeatable and Flexible Connectivity Options
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 super-fast transmission speeds allow you to create feature-rich builds that can handle high loads effortlessly.
USB 3.2 GEN 2 TYPE-A
Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including a rear-panel USB Type-A connectors with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.
THUNDERBOLT™ 4 HEADER SUPPORT
Prime B560-PLUS features Thunderbolt™ 4 support via an on-board header. With the latest Intel-certified ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card, it can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to an 8K resolution display. It can also provide up to 100 watts of power.
COMBINED ONBOARD FEATURES DELIVER ELEVATED AUDIO
Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything you've ever experienced.
Separates analog/digital signal domains, significantly reducing multi-lateral interference.
For Left and Right Tracks it ensures minimal crosstalk between audio paths.
PREMIUM JAPANESE CAPACITORS
Premium parts provide an immersive sound signature, with exceptional fidelity.
Tweak and Tune Your System
ASUS 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.

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. Fine-tune individual fan settings simply by dragging a curve with the mouse.
DIY Friendly Design Makes a Big Difference
SafeSlot Core+ is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot fortified with a one-piece stainless-steel brace that shields the slot to protect it from damage. The metal cover is tightly secured to the slot with hooks, and the entire assembly is firmly anchored to the PCB with strengthened solder points to provide a secure foundation for heavyweight graphics cards.
STRONGER FOR LONGER
Strengthened solder points around the PCIe and DIMM pins.
Metal inserts keep graphics cards properly aligned during installation.
FIRM SIDE PANELS
The metal side-panels feature hooks that firmly clasp the slot body.
