With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to drive the 11th and 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF GAMING B560M-E motherboard is the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig.
Multiple PCB layers shift heat away from critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability.
Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.
Certified military-grade MOSFETs with lower RDS(on)*.
*Lower RDS(on) results in better power efficiency and reduced heat generation.
The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
A larger, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.
TUF GAMING B560M-E 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 B560M-E motherboard features comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 2+ utility or via 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 over-temperature and overcurrent.
TUF GAMING B560M-E has a flexible M.2 heatsink PCIe 4.0 M.2 for an incredible performance boost.* Actual transmission speed will be lower than theorectical maximum speed.
Revisions to the motherboard's trace routing provide the latest Intel 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.
Numerous USB ports support gaming rigs loaded with peripherals, including a rear-panel rear-panel USB Type-C connector with fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 connectivity for compatible cases.
TUF GAMING B560M-E 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.

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.
Strengthened solder points around the PCIe and DIMM pins.
Metal inserts keep graphics cards properly aligned during installation.
The metal side-panels feature hooks that firmly clasp the slot body.
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.
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 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF GAMING motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.
