With a robust power design to drive multi-core Ryzen processors, plus cooling, storage, connectivity and audio options for a wide range of hardware, ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II offers gamers everything they need for a budget or high-performance build.
VRM Thermal Design
The ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II uses new alloy chokes that deliver better efficiency, and high-quality thermal pads to help transfer heat from the VRM array to a sink that has ample surface area for the latest processors. And to ensure critical components always make optimal contact, there's a backplate on the rear of the board that helps balance MOSFET temperatures while providing structural reinforcement.
Cooler by Design
ROG Strix B450 series features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.
CPU Fan Header - A dedicated pair of PWM/DC fan headers for CPU coolers.
AIO Pump Fan Header - A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
4-pin PWM/DC Fan Header - All onboard headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
Dual PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2
Dual PCIe® 3.0x4 M.2 slots provide NVM Express™ SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to three PCI Express® 3.0 storage devices via two M.2 slots and a PCIe x16 slot to enjoy incredible data-transfer speeds.
DDR4 OC 4400MHz
Tuned to take full advantage of Ryzen's capabilities, and ready for the latest memory kits, ROG Strix B450 Gaming Series motherboards are built specifically for high-performance gaming rigs. Maximise frame rates with a high-bandwidth memory kit or leverage a host of tuning options to extract peak performance potential from a modest setup.
Intel® Gigabit Ethernet
Intel Ethernet Controller I211-AT ensures fast and smooth data exchanges. It reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, leaving more processing power for gaming.
M.2 Socket with E Key
Integrated with Intel® Wireless AC/AX technology, the M.2 socket offers PCIe support for a faster and more cost-effective WiFi and Bluetooth® 5.1 solution*.
* Bluetooth 5.1 will be ready in Windows 10 build 19041 or later.
Featuring advanced signal-coupling technology and high-tolerance components, LANGuard provides consistent Ethernet performance and greater protection against static electricity and power surges.
Built-in ROG SupremeFX audio technology ensures pristine audio for ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II. Along with ensuring a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature, it offers two front-panel outputs driven by op amps that deliver high-quality audio to gaming headsets.
Audio Cover - Effective shielding against electromagnetic interference preserves the integrity of audio signals for the best sound quality.
Audio-line Shielding - Blocks electromagnetic interference from the motherboard or add-ons to provide cleaner audio.
Dual OP Amplifiers - With two op-amps onboard you're able to pump exceptional audio to your favourite cans, with 32-600O-headphone impedance for great flexibility.
Premium Nichicon™ Audio Capacitors - Fine-quality Japanese-made components that produce a warmer, natural sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.
AI Noise-Cancelling Microphone
AI noise-cancelling microphone software is exclusively featured on ROG Strix motherboards and supports 3.5 mm, USB, or Bluetooth headsets. The utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to preserve the sound of your voice while eliminating distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks, and other forms of environmental noise. And it only places a slight load on the CPU, ensuring minimal impact on gaming performance.
