Tweak and Tune Your Way

Wide Range of Performance and Tuning OptionsComprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime A520 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling you to tweak performance settings to perfectly match the way you work – maximizing your productivity.

Energy Efficiency

All-Around Energy efficiencyThe Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimises your power consumption and maximizes energy savings with a simple Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down any unused I/O controllers.

Fan Xpert 2+ Fan Xpert 2+ software provides comprehensive control over system fans. Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces chassis fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.

Fan Expert 4

Precise Digital Power ControlThe Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) gives real-time control over voltage drop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

World Renowned UEFI BIOS

Not just for veteransThe renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Advanced Mode

Advanced Mode An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various Advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.

Easy Mode

EZ(Easy) ModeEZ 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.
