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.
Six-Layer PCB Design
Multiple PCB layers optimize heat management for critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.
Enhanced EATX 8-Pin and 4-Pin Connectors
・ 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.
Cooler by design
1. Enlarged VRM heatsink
The extensive surface area of the massive heatsink covers the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation.
2. Flexible M.2 Heatsink
TUF GAMING B660M Series have flexible M.2 heatsink to use one more M.2 slot and keep the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
Comprehensive Fan Controls
TUF GAMING B660M series motherboards feature comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via the Fan Xpert 2+ utility or the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.
- Multiple temperature sources
- AiO water-cooling set
- 4-pin PWM/DC fan
- Smart fan protection
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.
MEMORY & STORAGE
DRAM Overclocking Performance
DDR4 OC 5333
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.
Two PCIe 4.0 M.2
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 theoretical maximum speed.
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
Front USB Port
A full complement of USB ports support 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 5 Gbps.
USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C®
Extensive USB support ensures connections to a wide array of peripherals. TUF GAMING B660M-PLUS D4 includes a USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C® port on the rear I/O panel that delivers increased bandwidth and transmission speeds of up to 20 Gbps.
Thunderbolt™ 4 Support
TUF GAMING B660M series features Thunderbolt™ 4 support via an on-board header. With an Intel-certified ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card* TUF GAMING B660M-PLUS D4 can also enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to an 8K resolution display. It can also provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.
* ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card is sold separately.
