The chipset takes full advantage of the large PCIe 4.0 data bandwidth to handle demanding tasks such as 4K live streaming, video editing, and gaming at high settings. Up to 128GB of dual-channel ECC DDR4 RAM, reaching 4400 MHz when overclocked, can be installed across four memory slots to improve the system's multitasking capabilities and speed. The ATX motherboard also features advanced cooling and supports up to two M.2 SSDs and six SATA III storage drives, which can be put into RAID 0, 1, or 10 configurations. Its PCIe 4.0 x16 and PCIe 3.0 x16 slots can accommodate a 2-way AMD CrossFireX configuration to maximize your system's frame rates at high resolutions. Three additional PCIe 3.0 x1 slots are available alongside a Thunderbolt 3 expansion card header. You can take advantage of AMD Ryzen processors with integrated graphics by connecting monitors to the motherboard's DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.1 ports.

Connect peripherals such as mice and keyboards to the USB 2.0 Type-A ports while reserving the USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A and Type-C ports for transferring data from compatible devices at up to 10 Gb/s. The ROG STRIX B550-F Gaming also features built-in 802.11ax Wi-Fi and a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port, providing you with the bandwidth needed for online games, 4K video streaming, and live stream broadcasts when paired with compatible devices. Other features include addressable Gen 2 Aura Sync RGB lighting headers and SupremeFX S1220A 7.1-channel audio. Windows 10 64-bit is required to take advantage of all the motherboard's features.

PCIe 4.0 Memory Bandwidth

The ASUS STRIX B550-F Gaming pairs third-generation AMD Ryzen processors with high PCIe 4.0 memory bandwidth through the B550 chipset for maximum performance.

Enhanced Cooling

The motherboard features fanless VRM and chipset heatsinks using the ASUS Stack Cool 3+ design to enhance passive cooling and maintain optimal temperatures for critical components. Aluminum M.2 heatsinks are also included to quickly dissipate heat from installed SSDs to help avoid heat throttling.

Storage and Memory

  • Two M.2 slots are available, supporting up to type 22110 NVMe PCIe and SATA SSDs.
  • Six SATA III ports are available for hard drives and 2.5" SSDs.
  • Supports RAID 0, 1, and 10.
  • Up to 128GB of dual-channel ECC DDR4-4400 (OC) memory can be installed across four slots.
  • ASUS OptiMem II trace layout technology allows memory kits to operate and high frequencies and low voltages to maximize performance.
  • The RAMCache III utility can automatically caches all your storage devices so that games and apps load faster.

Electrical Performance

The motherboard has 12+2 DrMOS power stages and uses high-quality alloy chokes alongside durable capacitors deliver power to critical components such as the CPU.

Fast Network Connectivity

The STRIX B550-F Gaming includes built-in 802.11ax Wi-Fi and a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port for high-speed network connections with compatible devices. The GameFirst VI network customization tool for ROG routers lets you select the best Wi-Fi channel to optimize data traffic, helping to ensure stability with minimal interference. The Ethernet port uses LANGuard technology to protect it against surges and to provide a cleaner data signal while reducing the chance of errors without taking up CPU resources.

AMD CrossFireX Support

Installing multiple graphics cards will enhance the computer's performance for demanding tasks such as gaming, video editing, and more. This motherboard supports a 2-way AMD CrossFireX configuration.

Integrated Graphics

The DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.2 ports support 4K monitors, which allow you to take advantage of AMD Ryzen CPUs that have integrated graphics.

  • Fan Xpert 4: Manually or automatically control the speed of your fans to find a balance of cooling performance and noise. Extreme Quiet mode reduces fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system quiet during light tasks.
  • Turbo App: A utility that allows you to customize the computer system's performance for individual applications.

Upgrade Features

  • Pre-Mounted I/O Shield: A design feature that streamlines the motherboard installation process.
  • BIOS FlashBack: The BIOS can be updated by copying the BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB stick, inserting it into the designated port, and pressing the FlashBack button. Updates may be performed without a CPU or memory installed.
  • SafeSlot: These strong PCIe slots increase retention force and shearing resistance when installing components.
  • FlexKey: With this feature, the front panel reset button can be customized to perform different functions. They include accessing Aura lighting controls, booting into Windows safe mode, and more.
  • Q-LED: Onboard LED lights indicate the power status and problems with the CPU, memory, graphics card, or boot device.
  • Q-Slot: A side lock that allows you to quickly install and secure a graphics card.

Asus ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING

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.
