The ASUS B85M-G R2.0 LGA-1150 Micro-ATX Motherboard enables you to build a compact Windows system that comes with standard features found in a typical desktop. It comes armed with an LGA 1150 socket along with a B85 chipset to support Intel's 4th-generation of Haswell processors. The chipset allows ASUS to create a motherboard with four DIMM slots that can accept up to 32GB of DDR3 1600 MHz memory modules. For storage, four SATA III and two SATA II connectors are available for your optical drives, hard drives, and SSDs.

Visuals can be handled by the CPU's integrated graphics chipset or a dedicated graphics card via the motherboard's single PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. With an integrated GPU, the motherboard can accommodate up to three monitors simultaneously, utilizing its onboard HDMI, DVI-D, and VGA ports. Moreover, the HDMI port is able to deliver 4K resolutions.

Accessing a network or Internet can be accomplished using the motherboard's Ethernet port, which offers Gigabit speeds. For audio, the Realtek ALC887-VD2 processor and three audio jacks surround you in 8-channel sounds. To connect with your peripherals, the motherboard sports two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports as well as two PS/2 ports. Furthermore, two PCIe 2.0 x1 slots allow you add additional ports to your system.

Intel LGA 1150 Socket
This motherboard supports Intel's 4th-generation Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium/Celeron processors in the LGA1150 package. This combination of performance offers iGPU, memory, PCI Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets, 2-channel (4 DIMM) DDR3 memory, and 16 PCIe 3.0/2.0 lanes.
Intel B85 Express Chipset
The Intel B85 Express chipset is a single-chipset design that supports socket LGA 1150 Intel 4th-generation processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. It natively supports up to four USB 3.0 ports, which deliver ten times faster transfer rates than USB 2.0. Moreover, the Intel B85 Express chipset also supports iGPU functionality, letting users enjoy the integrated graphics performance.
ASUS 5X Protection
ASUS motherboards guard your components with 5X Protection. ASUS uses components such as a DIGI+ VRM digital power design for precise CPU power on demand, ESD units tested to strict standards that eliminate electrostatic interference, and resettable fuses around DRAM slots to prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. There are also corrosion-resistant back I/O shields as well as solid-state capacitors.
The BIOS features a mouse-controlled graphical interface along with EZ and Advanced Modes so you can find your way quickly and easily. You may write quick notes in-BIOS for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports.
