Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II Gaming Series B450 Chipset Based AMD Ryzen Motherboard Relying on AM4 Socket, it comes with Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Support, Gigabit LAN, Realtek S1220A Audio Codec and A Solid VRM To Support Top Tier AMD CPU’s
Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II delivers all the essentials needed for a well-balanced build. Designed to handle the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ processors, ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II features amped-up power delivery, optimized thermal design and more stable DDR4 memory. BIOS FlashBack™ makes upgrading easy to give any dream build a head start, and intuitive ROG software ensures a superior gaming experience.
With a robust power design to drive multi-core Ryzen processors, plus cooling, storage, connectivity and audio options for a wide range of hardware, ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II offers gamers everything they need for a budget or high-performance build.
VRM Thermal Design
The ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II uses new alloy chokes that deliver better efficiency, and high-quality thermal pads to help transfer heat from the VRM array to a sink that has ample surface area for the latest processors. And to ensure critical components always make optimal contact, there’s a backplate on the rear of the board that helps balance MOSFET temperatures while providing structural reinforcement.
An integrated heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
Packed with intuitive software and DIY-friendly options for convenient setup and use, cyberpunk inspired aesthetics, plus a diverse ecosystem of components, ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II is the key to any outstanding gaming build.
Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics.
Pre-mounted I/O Shield
Patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install the motherboard.
Users can place a BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB drive and simply plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack™ port and press a button to update the (UEFI) BIOS. Updates can be made even if memory or CPU aren’t present.
Four onboard LEDs indicate power status, and any problem with the CPU, memory, graphics card or boot device for quick diagnosis.
The reinforced ASUS SafeSlot provides stronger PCIe device retention and greater shearing resistance.
ROG Gives You More
ROG-exclusive software utilities deliver intuitive audio tuning and gaming enhancements that allow you to configure your gaming build the way you want.
Sonic Studio III
Sonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.
The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users — beginners, experts, and everyone in between — optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI-enhanced identification and boost technology to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.
Armoury Crate is a software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customize RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronize them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system. You can also use Armoury Crate to download the user manual, drivers and software. In addition, Armoury Crate features a dedicated product registration page as well as a news feed to help you stay in touch with the gaming community.
*Windows 10 required for full Aura Sync functionality within Armoury Crate. For Windows 8 and earlier versions, standalone Aura Sync software is available for free download from the product support site.
RAMCache lll software turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times. Fully compatible with the latest NVM Express® storage options, its uniquely intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds.
