With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to drive the 12th Gen Intel Core™ processors, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF GAMING B660 motherboards are the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig.
The onboard VRMs feature 10+1 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 12th Gen Intel Core processors demand.The power stages are each rated to handle 50 amperes to provide stable performance for current and future Intel processors.
Multiple PCB layers optimize heat management for critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.
・ Provide extreme durability
・ Prevent hotspots and connector failure
Compared to traditional power inputs, ASUS ProCool connectors are built to tight specifications to ensure full contact with PSU power cables. The resulting lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and connector failure.
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-solid power to the CPU, improving system stability.
Proprietary capacitors provide up to 52% wider temperature tolerance and 2.5X-longer lifespan.
The integrated Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, optimized for ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
The extensive surface area of the massive heatsink covers the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation.
An expanded surface area for the chipset cooler maximizes performance and heat dissipation.
Three out of four M.2 slots have dedicated heatsinks, keeping M.2 SSDs at optimal operating temperatures to ensure consistent performance and reliability.
TUF GAMING B660 motherboards feature comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via the Fan Xpert 4 utility or the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or via the UEFI.
An integrated AIO system enables full control of PWM or DC water pumps, making it perfect for custom or self-contained cooling setups.
All onboard chassis fan headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from excess heat and electrical currents.
Improvements to trace routing design provide the latest Intel processors with enhanced access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce path distance, and it adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
The three PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots support up to two 22110 devices and the data-transfer speeds are up to 64 Gbps via PCIe® 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
The 12th Gen Intel processors bring PCIe 5.0 support to the market. PCIe 5.0 offers twice the data transfer speed of PCIe 4.0, making it robust enough to handle new data-heavy tasks. PCIe 5.0 also brings other benefits, such as electrical changes to improve signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and backward compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express
