TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS WIFI Intel ATX Motherboard from ASUS
DURABLE, STABLE AND RELIABLE MOTHERBOARD
ASUS TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS WIFI 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 WIFI sports the new TUF Gaming logo, and incorporates simple geometric design elements to reflect the dependability and stability that defines the TUF Gaming series.
Intel B560 Chipset
LGA 1200 CPU Socket
Micro-ATX Form Factor
Built to Take the Strain
Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.
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.
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
1. VRM HEATSINK
A large, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.
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
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.
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.
The Future of Home-Networking
The Intel® WiFi 6 module is compatible with the 802.11ax standard and pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it's optimized for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic. Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6.
INTEL 2.5G ETHERNET
2.5G on-board Ethernet kicks your LAN connection up a notch with an up to 2.5X bandwidth improvement. Using your existing LAN cable, you can take advantage this networking upgrade to experience smoother, lag-free gaming, immediately stream high-resolution videos and enjoy faster file transfers.
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
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
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.
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.
