Take advantage of connectivity and gaming performance with the TUF Gaming B450M-Plus II AM4 Micro-ATX Gaming Motherboard from ASUS. This TUF Gaming motherboard utilizes the AMD B450 chipset and is compatible with CPUs that fit the AM4 socket. Four RAM slots accommodate up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory, with speeds up to 4400 MHz supported when overclocking. Install drives using an M.2 or six SATA III interfaces; connect a graphics card and other adapters using the PCIe 3.0 x16, 2.0 x16 and 2.0 x1 slots.

A rear I/O panel sports one USB 3.2 Gen 2, two USB 3.2 Gen 1, and two USB 2.0 Type-A ports. Additionally, a UBS 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port is also present. Connect a legacy mouse or keyboard using the PS/2 combo port; connect displays via the HDMI or DVI-D ports. In addition to a Gigabit Ethernet port and three 3.5mm audio jacks, the rear panel also sports a BIOS flashback button. Internal headers support two USB 3.2 Gen 1 and four USB 2.0 ports on the front panel. Connectors for RGB, a TPM chip, two system fans, S/PDIF output, speakers, and a Clear CMOS are also present. Audio is handled by the Realtek ALC887 audio codec, which supports both 7.1 Surround Sound and 24-bit audio. AI Noise-Cancelling mic support provides smart audio pickup for efficient team chat, while VRM and PCH heatsinks ensure smooth operation and system stability. The ASUS TUF Gaming B450M-Plus II AM4 Micro-ATX Gaming Motherboard is compatible with Windows 10 64-bit operating systems, as well as Windows 7 64-bit when using an AMD Ryzen 1st or 2nd Generation processor.

AMD B450 Chipset

This motherboard uses the AMD B450 chipset, and is compatible with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen and Athlon CPUs that fit the AM4 socket.

TUF Chokes

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

TUF Capacitors

Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and five times longer lifespan.

Digi+ VRM

The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module, or VRM, ensures smooth and clean power delivery to the CPU.

Comprehensive Fan Controls

The TUF Gaming B450M-PLUS II features comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via the Fan Xpert 2+ utility or via the UEFI BIOS. Each header can be set to monitor and react to two user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and onboard chassis fan headers support PWM/DC fans. Additionally, a dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent.

32 Gb/s M.2 Support

An M.2 slot supports up to Type 22110 drives and data transfer speeds of up to 32 Gb/s via the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface, enabling quicker boot and app load times with OS or application drives.

USB 3.2 Gen 2

Doubling the speed of its predecessor, USB 3.2 Gen 2 features a maximum throughput of 10 Gb/s when used with compatible devices and is synonymous with USB 3.1 Gen 2.

Easy PC DIY

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.

SafeSlot

SafeSlot provides improved retention and shearing resistance, allowing the motherboard to accommodate heavy graphics cards. Manufactured via an insert-molding process, SafeSlot utilizes a metal construction for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

ESD guards

ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge.

TUF LANGuard

TUF LANGuard is designed to integrate advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.

DRAM Overvoltage Protection

Onboard 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 Panel

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.

BIOS FlashBack

BIOS FlashBack provides a simple and safe UEFI BIOS update method. Simply drop the UEFI BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack port, and press the button. Updates can even be performed without having memory or a CPU installed.

Armoury Crate

Armoury Crate is a software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customize RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device in your build and synchronize them with Aura Sync for unified system lighting effects. You can also turn on the AI Noise-Canceling Microphone function for crystal-clear in-game voice communication. The software also provides control of settings for a select and growing number of products, including keyboard and mouse preferences as well as laptop overclocking and fan speeds, making it easier to tune the look and feel of your system.

Turbo LAN

Turbo LAN is a network-optimization software for customizable packet prioritization. With cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology, it allows you to configure application priority via an intuitive interface and reduces network lag.

AI Noise-Canceling Microphone Software

Supporting 3.5mm, USB, and Bluetooth headsets, this software utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to preserve the sound of your voice while eliminating distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks, and other forms of environmental noise. What's more, it only places a slight load on the CPU, ensuring minimal impact on gaming performance.

DTS Custom for Gaming Headsets

Utilizing advanced emulation techniques to create positional cues via stereo headphones, DTS Custom offers enhanced audio via three presets for different genres.

Aura RGB

ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB header. Furthermore, it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
