Tweak and Tune Your Way

Wide Range of Performance and Tuning OptionsComprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime B550 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling you to tweak performance settings to perfectly match the way you work – maximising your productivity.

Energy Efficiency

All-Around Energy efficiencyThe Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimises your power consumption and maximizes energy savings with a simple Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down any unused I/O controllers.

Fan Xpert 2+ Fan Xpert 2+ software provides comprehensive control over system fans. Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces chassis fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.

Digi VRM

Precise Digital Power ControlThe Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) gives real-time control over voltage drop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

World Renowned UEFI BIOS

Not just for veteransThe 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 Mode 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.

Easy Mode

EZ(Easy) ModeEZ mode displays vital settings and stats and also offers guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings — all to help you get your rig up and running in no time.

Cooler by Design

Cool to the corePrime B550 series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 2+ software or via the UEFI BIOS.

Thermometer sensors

Multiple temperature sources Each header can be set to monitor and react to several thermal sensors, and via Fan Xpert 2+ you can even assign a sensor to monitor the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards — for optimal cooling during GPU- or CPU-intensive workloads.

Fan detectors and headers

4-pin PWM/DC Fan Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

 bundled extension card

Smart Protection A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from overheating and overcurrent.

Keep your Components Cool for Longer

Extended Heatsink

Extended VRM Heatsinks and Thermal PadsA VRM heatsink with underneath thermal pad improves heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.

Lightning Fast Storage with Dual M.2

Dual m.2

Faster booting and app load times PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot supports up to 22110 and provides NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to 64Gbps PCIe 4.0 storage device to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen platform.

ASUS SafeSlot Protection

safe slot core

PREMIUM ASUS TECHNOLOGY SafeSlot Core is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot. Featuring a fortified design that's anchored to the motherboard by a special hook, SafeSlot Core provides 1.6x stronger retention and 1.3x greater shearing resistance than standard expansion slots.
