ASUS B250 MINING EXPERT overview

  • 1Description

Designed with 19 PCIe slots and three zoned ATX12V power connectors that allow users to run up to 19 NVIDIA or AMD GPUs in parallel to help max out megahash rates, the B250 Mining Expert LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard from ASUS is designed for cryptocurrency mining. Its 19 PCIe slots are grouped into three distinct zones, each of which is powered by a dedicated 24-pin ATX12V power connector. The Mining Expert supports 7th & 6th Generation Intel Core i7, i5, i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors, the LGA 1151 socket, and the Intel B250 chipset. While it is compatible with Windows 10 and 7 (64-bit), Windows 10 supports 7th & 6th Generation processors, and Windows 7 only supports 6th Generation processors.

The ATX form factor of the Mining Expert can support up to 32GB of RAM over two 288-pin DIMM slots that can each hold 16GB of DDR4 non-ECC unbuffered memory. When equipped with a 7th Generation processor, memory speeds are supported up to 2400 MHz, while 6th Generation processors only support memory speeds up to 2133 MHz.

The Mining Expert has a total of four SATA III 6 Gb/s ports for data storage, plus four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, two PS/2 ports, one HDMI port, and three 3.5mm audio jacks, all located at the rear, as well as two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, one COM port, one S/PDIF out header, and one front panel audio connector, all located mid-board. Other features include an Intel I219V Gigabit LAN port for network connectivity. Included is an I/O shield and two SATA III 6 Gb/s cables. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

General Features

Designed for Crypto Mining

19-Slot Mining Motherboard
The ASUS Mining Expert is a mining motherboard that features 19 PCI Express (PCIe) slots. With 18 PCIe x1 slots and one PCIe x16 slot, plus three zoned ATX12V power connectors, B250 Mining Expert lets you run up to 19 NVIDIA or AMD GPUs in parallel to max out your megahash rates.
Triple-ATX12V Power Delivery3
The Mining Expert has been engineered to cleanly and efficiently provide the power your GPUs need. The 19 PCIe slots are grouped into three distinct zones, each powered by its own dedicated 24-pin ATX12V power connector, which helps reduce wiring complexity and ensure ample power delivery to all PCIe slots.
Voltage-Stabilization Capacitors
Stable, low-noise power is a benefit for 24/7 cryptocurrency mining. That's why ASUS has engineered the Mining Expert with 19 decoupling capacitors. These components smooth voltages and reduce high-frequency noise, so your GPUs get the good-quality power delivery needed for reliable operations.
PCIe Slot State Detection
The Mining Expert has built-in smarts to show the status of each and every graphics card from the moment you power up. The moment the Power-On, Self-Test (POST) screen appears, you'll see a graphical representation of the status of every slot, so you'll know if there's a problem or whether your mining operation is good to go.
Mining Mode BIOS Optimization
Unlike some rival boards, the Mining Expert has a special Mining Mode that's enabled by default, removing the hassle of having to make BIOS-level changes that are necessary to maximize mining performance. Mining Mode sets the PCI Express speed to PCIe 1.0 and disables the Compatibility Support Module, so you get the best stability and compatibility right out of the gate.
Intel Gigabit LAN and ASUS LANGuard
The Mining Expert is equipped with Intel Gigabit Ethernet for the strong throughput and lower CPU overhead, helping to ensure consistent and powerful performance from your mining rig. ASUS' exclusive LANGuard employs signal-coupling technology and surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, thus protecting the Mining Expert from lightning strikes and static electricity.

More Profitable Mining

Money-Saving
The Mining Expert is cost-effective. The ability to run up to 19 GPUs from one board eliminates the costly investment in additional CPUs, memory, and drives that would be required to create equivalent mining resources using competitor motherboards. So, you spend less to mine more.
Higher Hash Rates
With so many slots available, the Mining Expert gives you the means to push for higher hash rates. With 16 slots occupied, ASUS' laboratory tests generated results of up to 342 MH/s and up to 407 MH/s with 19 GPUs in operation. Performance depends on precise hardware configuration and operating environment. Actual results will vary.
Lower TCO
More hashes mean more cryptocurrency creation, and that means more money from your mining operation. Compared to some 6-slot motherboards, the Mining Expert delivers a TCO saving of up to $1.83 per megahash-generation potential.

Intel CPU and Chipset Features

Intel B250 Chipset
The Intel B250 is a single-chipset design that supports 7th and 6th Generation Intel LGA1151 Core i7, i5, i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors. It provides improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. It natively supports up to six USB 3.0 ports, six SATA III 6 Gb/s ports, and PCIe 3.0 lane speed support for faster data retrieval. The Intel B250 chipset also supports iGPU functionality, so you'll enjoy Intel integrated graphics performance.
Read for 7th Generation & 6th Generation Intel LGA 1151 Core i7, i5, i3, Pentium, and Celeron CPUs
The ASUS B250 Mining Expert LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard supports 7th Generation and 6th Generation Intel Core i7, i5, i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors in the LGA 1151 package. Integrated graphics, memory, and PCI Express controllers support onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets, two-channel (2-DIMM) DDR4 memory, and 16 PCI Express lanes.
