Product Overview

Prime B650M-A II

ASUS Prime series motherboards are expertly engineered to unleash the full potential of AMD Ryzen 7000-series processors. Boasting a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions and intelligent tuning options, PRIME B650M-A II provides users and PC DIY builders with a range of performance optimizations via intuitive software and firmware features.


Flexibility

Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS PRIME series. The PRIME B650 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work to maximize productivity.


CPU Performance Boost

AMD Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) pushes the CPU current and voltage budget to opportunistically increase performance. By aggressively tuning the PBO parameters, AMD 's algorithm can leverage the motherboard's robust power solution to ramp up performance even higher.


All-Around Energy Efficiency

The Power Saving function contains several settings can easily optimize power consumption and maximize energy savings. You can enable a CPU power limit, darken Aura lighting, and set the fan profile to a power saving mode. You can also toggle the Power Saver plan that is built into Microsoft Windows.


Flexible Cooling Controls

ASUS Fan Xpert 2+ software provides comprehensive control over fans. An 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.


Precise Digital Power Control

The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.


UEFI BIOS

The 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 Tuning for Serious Tweaker

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.

Quick and Simple Setup

EZ mode displays vital settings and stats and 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


Cooling

Prime B650 series are engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.


VRM Heatsink and Thermal Pad

VRM heatsink and thermal pads improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.


Cooler by Design

Prime B650 series feature comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 2+ software or via the UEFI BIOS.


Multiple Temperature Sources

Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 2+ allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.


Smart Protection

A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent.


4-Pin PWM/DC Fan

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


Six-Layer PCB Design

Multiple PCB layers optimize heat management for critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.


Performance

The PRIME B650 series is built to handle the high core counts and bandwidth demands of AMD processors. ASUS B650 motherboard provides all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible data transfer options.


DDR5 Performance Enhancement

Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of PRIME motherboards. With the PRIME B650M-A II, you can extract all the potential out of your DDR5 modules, whether they're from an extreme-speed kit or an entry-level set that would otherwise be locked.
For those who want to fly past stock DDR5 speeds, the PRIME B650M-A II is primed and ready for enthusiast-grade kits courtesy of vast AMD Extended Profiles for Overclocking (EXPO™) support. Seasoned veterans can further tweak performance via the extensive array of settings in the UEFI.


ASUS OptiMem II

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


Storage

PCIe 5.0 M.2 Support

PRIME B650M-A II offers a total of two M.2 slots, the first one supports data-transfer speeds of up to 128Gbps via PCIe 5.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.


PCIe 4.0 Slot

Prime B650 motherboards offer PCIe 4.0 Slot 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.


Front USB Type-C®

A full complement of USB ports supports high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including a front-panel USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C® connector that provides data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps.


Realtek 2.5 Gb Ethernet

Realtek 2.5 Gb Ethernet reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfers.


LANGuard

ASUS LANGuard is a hardware-level network protection feature that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput and ensure a more reliable connection.


Customization

The PRIME B650 series 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.


Audio Shielding

Audio shielding ensures precision analogue/digital separation and greatly reduced multi-lateral interference.


Dedicated Audio PCB Layers

Separate layers for left and right tracks ensure both channels deliver consistent, equal quality.


Premium Audio Capacitors

Provides warm, natural, and immersive sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.


Outshine the Competition

A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional pre-sets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips and devices connected to the onboard RGB headers - and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.


Addressable Gen 2 Headers

Three addressable Gen 2 headers can detect the number of LEDs on second-gen addressable RGB devices, allowing the software to automatically tailor lighting effects to specific devices. The new headers also offer backward-compatibility with existing Aura RGB gear.


Armoury Crate

Within a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate offers easily customized Aura Sync RGB settings for every compatible device in your arsenal, plus controls for an ever-growing family of ASUS products, including keyboard and mouse preferences. Armoury Crate also integrates product registration and a news feed so that you never miss updates of interest to the ASUS community.


Q-LED Core

The Q-LED Core display produces light patterns by power LED during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) that can help users troubleshoot potential issues.


BIOS FlashBack™

BIOS FlashBack™ is the simplest and safest (UEFI) BIOS update method. Simply drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32 formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack™ port and press the button. Updates can even be performed without a memory or a CPU installed.


SafeSlot Core+

SafeSlot Core+ is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot fortified with a one-piece stainless-steel brace that shields the slot to protect it from damage. The metal cover is tightly secured to the slot with hooks, and the entire assembly is firmly anchored to the PCB with strengthened solder points to provide a secure foundation for heavyweight graphics cards.

o Strengthened solder points around the PCIe and DIMM pins.


World-Class Circuit-Protecting Power Design

An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your motherboard from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies.


3x Corrosion-Resistance for Greater Durability

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