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.
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.
TUF GAMING B660M-E D4 has a flexible M.2 heatsink to use on more M.2 slots and keep the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
TUF GAMING B660 motherboards feature comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via the Fan Xpert 2+ 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 2+ 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 two PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots support up to two 2280 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.
*Actual transmission speed will be lower than theorectical maximum speed.
A full complement of USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including a front-panel USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C® connector that provides data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps.
TUF GAMING B660M-E D4 comes along with an vertical M.2 (Key E) slot and ASUS exclusive Wi-Fi card holder which provide you the flexibility to upgrade your networking solution by installing an M.2 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module.
TUF GAMING motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want — even for first-time builders. The TUF GAMING Alliance ecosystem makes selecting compatible parts easy, while Armoury Crate software provides Fan Xpert 2+ and hardware information and offers full full control of Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation, RGB lighting and peripheral settings. The TUF GAMING platform gives you the arsenal you need to build and optimize your dream gaming rig, without unnecessary complexity.
TUF GAMING Alliance is a collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC component brands to ensure compatibility across a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With new partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger. Learn More
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. ASUS SafeDIMM sheathes support and protect memory modules on select ASUS motherboards, empowering you to insert your modules with speed, accuracy and confidence.
ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge — greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of +/- 6 kV and +/- 4 kV. Surface-mounted TVS diodes in a dual in-line package help protect your PC from voltage spikes.
TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.
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.
TUF GAMING motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a lifespan that’s three times longer than traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF GAMING motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.
The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an M.2 SSD without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the M.2 SSD, neatly eliminating the need for screws.
The on-board Q-LED troubleshooting lights give PC builders a quick indicator to confirm that key components ― CPU, RAM, graphics card, storage devices ― are functioning normally during startup.

This powerful ASUS-exclusive utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone* and incoming audio while preserving voices. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises are removed so you can hear and be heard with perfect clarity while gaming or during calls.
*An audio splitter (3.5 mm audio jack Y-cable) is necessary when using a 3.5 mm headset.
DTS Audio Processing enhances gaming headset and speaker audio experiences by reducing distortion and by providing deeper bass, so games, movies and music sound better. It also allows you to customize audio settings.
A well-tuned system deserves a matching aesthetic. TUF Gaming B660 series features edge lighting to enhance its rugged look, and now the PCH heatsink gets RGB lighting to take the style even further. ASUS Aura offers full RGB control with a variety of functional presets for built-in LEDs as well as third-party strips you can connect to onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.Learn more about ASUS Aura Sync.
The addressable Gen 2 RGB header is now capable of detecting the number of LEDs on second-gen addressable RGB devices, allowing the software to automatically tailor lighting effects to specific devices. The new header also offers backward-compatibility with existing addressable RGB gear.
