Cooler by design
1. VRM heatsink
A large, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.
High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.
2. M.2 heatsink
The M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
COMPREHENSIVE FAN CONTROLS
TUF Gaming B460M-PLUS features comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 2+ utility or via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.
- Multiple temperature sources
- 4-pin PWM/DC fan
- Smart protection
Each header can monitor and react to dedicated thermal sensors. you can even map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.
All onboard headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent.
DUAL PCIE 3.0 M.2
Dual M.2 slots support data-transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps on the x4 PCI Express® 3.0 bandwidth, making it perfect for OS or application drives for quicker boot-up and app load times.*Actual transmission speed will be lower than theoretical maximum speed.
Revisions to the motherboard's trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Improved memory stability and compatibility
Allows lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages
Improved memory frequency margin
USB 3.2 Gen 1
Numerous USB ports support gaming rigs loaded with peripherals, including a rear-panel USB Type-A connector with fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 connectivity for compatible cases.

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.
DRAM overvoltage protection
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.
