Quick and Simple Setup
EZ mode displays vital settings and stats and also offers guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings — all to help you get your rig up and running in no time.


Intuitive Graphical Fan Control
Fine-tune individual fan settings simply by dragging a curve with the mouse.

EZ XMP
Improve DRAM performance with one click.

Cool to the Core
Prime B460M-A R2.0 is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.

Cooler by Design
Prime B460M-A R2.0 features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert software or via the UEFI BIOS.

Each header can be set to monitor and react to several thermal sensors, and via Fan Xpert you can even assign a sensor to monitor the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards — for optimal cooling during GPU- or CPU-intensive workloads.

Each onboard Chassis Fan header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Build on a Solid Foundation
Prime B460-A R2.0 is built to handle the additional cores and increased bandwidth of 11th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. ASUS Prime motherboards provide all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options.

ASUS OptiMem
Revisions to the motherboard's trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.


M.2 Slot (up to 32 Gbps)
M.2 slot support data-transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps via x4 PCI Express® 3.0 bandwidth, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.

* Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.

PCIe® 4.0 Slot
ASUS PRIME B460M-A R2.0 is designed specifically for 11th Generation Intel® Core™ CPUs and offer PCIe® 4.0 connectivity for the latest GPUs. The wide bandwidth and superfast transmission speeds allow you to create feature-rich builds that can handle high loads effortlessly.

Intel® 1 Gb Ethernet
Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.

Little Things Make a Big Difference
Prime B460M-A R2.0 adds the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls that let you customize your system to create a uniquely personal look.
