Product Overview

PRIME

ASUS Prime is the next evolution of the ASUS motherboard, born of a pedigree that stretches back to 1989. Our team of world-class engineers are passionate about empowering everyone to enjoy the benefits of customisation and tuning, and the driving force behind the development of Prime is to make advanced enthusiast controls easily accessible — maximising performance, stability and compatibility for the very best DIY PC experiences. Simply stated: it's time for Prime.


Built to Last

ASUS is the world's foremost motherboard manufacturer, renowned for our unique Design Thinking approach. Our exhaustive testing exceeds industry standards, supported by high-quality components for exceptional real-world protection. Our motherboards are proven to be compatible with more than 1,000 components and devices, and each new model undergoes a minimum of 8,000 hours of strict validation. ASUS gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your motherboard is fit for all environments and applications. By choosing ASUS, you also gain the freedom to select outstanding component options, for trouble-free DIY experiences.


5X Protection III

PRIME A320 series motherboards are engineered with industry-leading 5X Protection III, employing the finest components, excellent circuit design, and exacting standards to guarantee the quality and long-term durability of your motherboard. That means exceptional protection and stability for your build — thanks to decades of engineering experience from the world's leading motherboard brand.


SafeSlot Core

SafeSlot Core is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot. Featuring a fortified design that's anchored to the motherboard by a special hook, Safeslot Core provides 1.6x stronger retention and 1.3x greater shearing resistance than standard expansion slots.


LANGuard

ASUS LANGuard is hardware-level networking protection that employs signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to ensure a more reliable connection and better throughput, plus electrostatically guarded and surge-protected components for greater tolerance to static electricity and improved protection against surges.


Overvoltage Protection

An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your chipset, connectivity ports, and audio codecs from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies.


DIGI+ VRM

ASUS-exclusive DIGI+ VRM intelligently delivers power to the processor based on real-time demands, reducing energy waste and improving system stability.


DRAM Overcurrent 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

Corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's three times longer than ordinary panels.


ESD Guards

ASUS ESD Guards prevent damage from electrostatic discharge, up to +/- 10kV for air discharge and +/- 6kV for contact discharge, arranged in an active-protective-circuit design that prolongs the life of components.


Proven Compatibility

Having the freedom to pick and choose the parts that go into your machine is at the heart of PC DIY. Our extensive certification program focuses on providing the very best compatibility with the widest range of components and devices, giving you the freedom to build and upgrade without frustration. Compatible today and compatible far into the future – that's the ASUS way.


Extensive List of Supported Devices

The superior compatibility of Prime A320 series is evidenced by our extensive list of supported devices — which includes thousands of compatible components — and our Qualified Vendor List that identifies memory compatibility. That means more choices for worry-free PC-building experiences.


Great Compatibility with ASUS Products

ASUS offers a suite of proprietary components — graphics cards, sound cards, optical drives — that perfectly complement Prime A320 series, so you can complete your custom motherboard build with confidence!


Top-to-Bottom Reliability

ASUS motherboards have superb endurance. We verify this by subjecting every board to more than 8,000 hours of stringent tests. A barrage of burn-in, environmental, compatibility, software and safety tests confirm that our motherboards are exceptionally robust. It also shows that ASUS reliability surpasses industry standards, ensuring that every component is designed to function flawlessly in any environment.


DDR4 Support

With DDR4, you'll accelerate memory frequencies up to an incredible to 3200MHz! And ASUS works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor, so you're assured the best compatibility.


Fan Xpert

Exclusive Fan Xpert ensures every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise - and with Prime A320 series boards and their hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode for case fans, a simple BIOS adjustment lets you run your case fan in PWM/DC. Fan Xpert even includes Auto-Tuning mode to scan and detect all fan characteristics for single-click customisation!


Gaming Audio

Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything you've ever experienced!


Energy Efficient Design

With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system power savings. EPU automatically optimises power consumption, and maximises savings with Away mode.


10Gb/s USB 3.1 Onboard

With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Type-A, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gb/s (twice as fast as standard USB 3.1 Gen 1).


Speed Up with Onboard M.2 up to 32Gb/s

With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gb/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible.


Q-Slot

The large winged clip is easy to reach and easy to operate. Just press the Q-Slot clip lightly, and the graphics card pops out. Installing or removing even the biggest graphics cards is no sweat!


Q-DIMM

Even if you work with a smaller case, just push down on the one-sided clip and push or pull RAM modules in or out - removing memory is that simple!


Media-Acclaimed UEFI BIOS

The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, EZ and Advanced modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
