Fan Xpert 2+

Flexible Air- and Liquid-Cooling Controls

ASUS Fan Xpert 2+ software provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AiO) coolers. Whether cooling with air or water, an Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There’s also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans, water pumps and AiO coolers can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.

Digi+ VRM Control

Precise Digital Power Control

The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

UEFI BIOS

The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Advanced Mode

Advanced Tuning for Serious Tweakers

An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.

EZ Mode

COOLING

Prime B660 series are engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.

Heatsinks

M.2 HEATSINK

M.2 Heatsink

M.2 heatsink wards off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfers. The heatsink is held in place by captive screws.

VRM HEATSINK

VRM Heatsink and Thermal Pads

VRM heatsink and thermal pads improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.

Cooler by Design

Prime B660 series feature comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 2+ software or via the UEFI BIOS.

Multiple Temperature Sources

Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 2+ allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.

PERFORMANCE

Prime B660 series are built to handle the additional cores and increased bandwidth of 12th Generation Intel® processors. ASUS B660 motherboards provide all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options.

Robust Power Design

Stable power is essential to extract every last bit of performance out of 12th Generation Intel processors. Prime B660-PLUS D4 is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core-count CPUs.

ProCool Connector

Proprietary connector augments the motherboard's link to the PSU with 8 pin connector that passes 12 volts of power directly to the processors. Each jack features solid pins that can handle more current than hollow-pin connectors.

Memory

DDR4

DDR4 5066(OC)

Improvements to trace routing design provide the latest Intel processors with enhanced access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce path distance, and it adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
