TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS Intel ATX Motherboard from ASUS

TUF Gaming B560 Motherboard

DURABLE, STABLE AND RELIABLE MOTHERBOARD

ASUS TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS comes in a Micro-ATX size and takes all the essential elements of the latest 10th and 11th gen Intel® Core™ Intel® 1200 socket processors. It also combines the Intel processors with game-ready features and proven durability with support for DDR4 memory. Engineered with military-grade components, an upgraded power solution and a comprehensive cooling system, this motherboard offers rock-solid, stable performance for marathon gaming. Aesthetically, TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS sports the new TUF Gaming logo, and incorporates simple geometric design elements to reflect the dependability and stability that defines the TUF Gaming series.

Power Delivery Enhancements

TUF CAPACITORS

Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.

Power Delivery Enhancements

DIGI+VRM

The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.

Power Delivery Enhancements

TUF CHOKES

Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability.

POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS

With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to drive the 11th and 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF GAMING B560 series motherboards are the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig. The onboard VRM of TUF GAMING B560 series motherboards utilize 8+1 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 11th Gen Intel Core processors demand. A multiple PCB layers shift heat away from critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds. The motherboard also uses ProCool connectors that are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. This results in lower impedance and helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

Cooler by Design

Identify

1. LARGER VRM HEATSINK

A larger, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.

THERMAL PAD

High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.

2. M.2 HEATSINK

B560M-PLUS has a flexible M.2 heatsink to use on more M.2 slots and keep the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.

Comprehensive Fan Controls

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. ​

Excellent Memory and Storage Capabilities

back

PCIE 4.0 M.2 (UP TO 64 GBPS)

TUF GAMING B560 series motherboards feature PCIe 4.0 M.2. The M.2_1 supports PCIe 4.0 and the M.2_2 support PCIe 3.0.

back

DRAM OVERCLOCKING PERFORMANCE

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.

Little Things Make a Big Difference

TRUSTWORTHY STABILITY AND COMPATIBILITY

TUF Gaming motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want —even for first-time builders. The TUF Gaming Alliance ecosystem makes selecting compatible parts easy, while Armoury Crate software offers full control of system settings via a single dashboard. TUF Gaming motherboards give you everything you need to build your dream gaming rig without adding complexity.

DRAM Overcurrent Protection

DRAM OVERCURRENT PROTECTION

On-board 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

STAINLESS-STEEL BACK I/O

TUF Gaming motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF Gaming motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.

Stainless-Steel Back I/O

LANGUARD

TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.

Outshine the Competition with ASUS Aura Sync

YOUR MOTHERBOARD, YOUR WAY

A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware. The addressable Gen 2 RGB header is now 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 header also offers backward-compatibility with existing Aura RGB gear.
