Details

Asus PRIME B460M-A

                                                        

The ASUS PRIME B460M-A LGA 1200 Micro-ATX Motherboard is designed around the Intel B460 chipset, supporting 10th Gen Intel Core, Pentium Gold, and Celeron processors with an LGA 1200 socket. It has four memory slots supporting up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM, which can run up to 2933 MHz. There are six SATA III ports and two M.2 slots for storage. This motherboard features a micro-ATX form factor, allowing for use in smaller cases. Other integrated features include Realtek RTL811H Gigabit Ethernet and Realtek ALC887 7.1-channel HD audio.

Intel B460 Chipset

This motherboard features the Intel B460 Chipset and the Intel LGA Socket 1200, making it ready for 10th Gen Intel Core processors.

ASUS OptiMem Technology

ASUS OptiMem technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. This allows for improved memory stability and compatibility, lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages, and improved memory frequency margin.

Storage

The dual M.2 slots support data transfer rates of up to 32 Gb/s via PCIe 3.0 x4 bandwidth, enabling quicker boot times and app load times with OS or application drives.

Audio

This motherboard separates analog and digital signal domains, significantly reducing multi-lateral interface. Crosstalk is minimized by the separate layer between left and right tracks.

Armoury Crate

Armoury Crate is a software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported products. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate allows you to easily customize RGB lighting and effects for every compatible device. The software also provides control of settings for ASUS products, including keyboard and mouse preferences. Armoury Crate can even provide dedicated product registration and help from the ASUS community.

SafeSlot Core

SafeSlot Core is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot. The fortified design anchors to the motherboard by a special hook. SafeSlot Core provides 1.6 times the retention and 1.3 times the shearing resistance than standard expansion slots.

Whether you build a new PC or upgrade the existing one, the motherboard is the most vital component to choose when you have already picked the processor of your choice.
 

It is important to keep a few things in mind while purchasing the mainboard: 


Pick up the Right Socket: You can single out a great CPU from either Intel or AMD, but whatever CPU you choose, make sure your mainboard has the right socket for the selected CPU. The latest mainstream AMD chips use AM4 sockets while current Intel 9th Gen Core CPUs require LGA 1151v2 sockets.


Motherboard Sizes: Motherboards typically come in three sizes from largest to smallest: ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ATX motherboards. ATX motherboards offer the highest number of RAM and expansion slots. If you are looking for a budget build, you can use a smaller chassis with the micro or mini boards, but you'll have to settle for fewer PCIe slots, RAM banks, and other connectors.
 

Number of RAM Slots: Most mainstream boards these days have four RAM slots, although Mini-ITX models often have just two, and high-end boards frequently offer eight. The amount of slots, of course, limits the amount of RAM you can install.
 

Motherboard ports: It’s essential to check the I/O area on a motherboard to make sure it has the external connection options you need. You may need more USB 3 ports while others may want more audio ports. Among the most common ports, there are USB 3, USB 2, audio, USB type C, USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2, HDMI, Display port, PS/2 and Thunderbolt 3 ports. Ports one probably want the most are USB 2 and USB 3 Gen1 ports, as the first one is perfect for keyboard, mouse, and many other devices and the later one work with most peripherals. USB 3.1 Gen2 and USB Type-C ports will come handy in the near future, although most peripherals do not support this standard yet.
 

Motherboard Chipsets: CPU mainly dictates the compatible chipset options. For Intel motherboards, one can choose from the cheaper options that can’t be overclocked or the expensive ones that can. Chipset with the letter 'Z' in the name has the overclocking feature and chipsets with letters 'B', 'H', 'Q'… do not come with this particular feature.
