ASUS ProArt B660-CREATOR D4 LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard

Utilize the power of the 12th Generation Intel Core Processors for content creation with the ProArt B660-CREATOR D4 LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard from ASUS. Designed for content creators, the ProArt allows you to optimize your content creation system for high-end photo and video editing projects.

The B660 chipset and LGA 1700 CPU socket work together to provide enhanced speeds with PCIe 5.0 capabilities, boosting the overall performance of your system. Four SATA III ports and three M.2 storage connectors allow you to equip your system with an array of high-speed drives, ideal for large files. Four dual-channel DDR4 RAM slots allow you to install a maximum of 128GB of system memory, essential for rendering video content. One PCIe 5.0 x16 expansion slot allows you to install a high-end graphics card to streamline your creation process while PCIe 3.0 x16 and PCIe 3.0 x1 slots allow you to install other expansion cards. An internal Thunderbolt 4 header supports an optional Thunderbolt 4 expansion card. Connection to a network is available thanks to two Ethernet ports providing 2.5 and 1 Gb speeds. This motherboard is compatible with both Microsoft 10 and Microsoft 11 (64-Bit).   

Connectivity
USB Type-C with DisplayPort Mode
The back I/O panel features a USB Type-C port which delivers transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s, and it supports an alternate mode that provides DisplayPort 1.4 output for up to 8K resolution at 60 Hz. This new feature gives creators premium-grade flexibility to choose between high-speed data or an additional high-resolution display.
USB 3.2 Gen 2x2
A USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 connector boosts Type-C data transfers with speeds of up to 20 Gb/s. The connector also features Quick Charge 4+ technology that can quickly charge devices up to 60 W with a PCIe power supply cable into the nearby 6-pin connector.
Thunderbolt 4
The ProArt B660-Creator D4 features Thunderbolt 4 support via an on-board header. Thunderbolt 4 is capable of delivering up to 40 Gb/s bidirectional bandwidth, essential for resource-demanding peripherals. Thunderbolt 4 ports also support video output with 4K resolution for dual displays or 8K resolution for a single display.
Networking
Dual Ethernet ports provide fast data transfers simultaneously for internet and for local network-attached storage (NAS), allowing for improved data organization and security. The 2.5Gb Ethernet port provides faster data transfers and smooth high-resolution video streaming.
M.2 Storage
Three M.2 slots support PCIe 4.0 or 3.0 drives and provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 4.0 storage devices to enjoy the fastest data transfer speeds. The innovative Q-Latch makes it easier to install or remove M.2 SSDs without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the d rive, eliminating the need for screws.
Performance
Power Delivery
Sporting an optimized power design layout, the ProArt features robust power delivery consisting of alloy chokes and durable capacitors which are designed to resist extreme temperatures. Digi+ VRM and 12+1 power stages combine high- and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package designed to deliver efficiency demanded by the 12th Generation of Intel processors. The ProCool II socket ensures flush contact between power connectors and PSU lines, enhancing heat dissipation and providing lower electrical impedance.
PCIe 5.0 Ready
The 12th Gen Intel processors bring PCIe 5.0 support to the market. PCIe 5.0 offers twice the data transfer speed of PCIe 4.0, making it robust enough to handle new data-heavy tasks. PCIe 5.0 also brings other benefits, such as improved signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and backwards compatibility with previous PCIe versions.
DDR4 Memory
The ProArt B660-Creator D4 supports up to 128GB of DDR4 memory across four slots. ASUS-exclusive OptiMem II technology improves trace layout to significantly reduce signal distance and crosstalk, enhancing memory stability and compatibility while giving memory kits higher clock speed margins.
Cooling Design
Heatsinks
Designed to reduce heat buildup, the ProArt features two VRM heatsinks that are placed above the MOSFETs and chokes to further increase surface area for heat dissipation. A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to help ensure that temperatures stay within an optimal range, and two M.2 heatsinks cover three M.2 slots to keep M.2 SSDs at the optimal operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
Headers
Utilize fan or liquid coolers with an arrangement of headers designed to deliver efficient cooling to your system. Multiple temperature sensors monitor and react to heat buildup and can be managed with the included Fan Xpert 4 software. Headers can automatically detect if your system is running PWM or DC fans, and dual pump headers allow you to use AIO or custom loop coolers.
For Content Creation
Security
Advanced security management functions protect your system and confidential information from being accessed with various imbedded protocols. USB port management allows you to enable and disable your ports or set them to Read Only modes. Software blacklist prevents the use of high-risk applications, and registry editor prevents unauthorized changes to system configurations.
ProArt Creator Hub
Manage various aspects of your system from the motherboard to additional ProArt series products with the ProArt Creator Hub. Adjust fan modes and cooling performance and create task groups that allow you to launch your most frequently used applications with a single click. The hub also sports an adaptive intelligence mode which prioritizes network bandwidth for heavy-use applications and allocates bandwidth to active content-creation applications.
CreationFirst
The CreationFirst optimization utility allows users to prioritize applications to allocate more bandwidth for essential apps and tasks. CreationFirst mode puts content-creation applications at the front of the queue, optimizing network traffic for more efficient workflows. Similarly, Adaptive Intelligence mode analyzes usage patterns and identifies applications that are currently in use, applying foreground acceleration to ensure smoother online experiences when multitasking.
Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation
An integrated audio cancelation program backed by an AI actively reduces background noise from your microphone and incoming audio, ensuring you can hear and be heard loud and clear without distracting sounds.
Trusted Stability
The ProArt has been tested to withstand the demanding workload of content creators. Extensive compatibility validation ensures the ProArt is compatible with a wide range of memory modules as well as other components.
