Prime B360M-K Intel B360 (Socket 1151) DDR4 Micro-ATX Motherboard
The Intel B360 chipset of the ASUS PRIME B360M-K-Mainboards is designed for use with 8000- series Coffee Lake CPUs from Intel and offers support for USB 3.1 without needing additional chips. The chipset also allows the use of ultra fast NVMe SSDs and Intel Optane due to the M.2 slot which is natively connected over PCIe. Socket 1151 motherboards that use the B360 chipset make a great foundation for building a budget gaming PC or home office computer.
The Features of the ASUS PRIME B360M-K at a Glance:
- 1x PCIe (3.0) x16 & 2x PCIe (3.0) x1
- 1x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) / 6x SATA 6G
- 2x USB 3.1 Type A on the I/O-Panel
- Total of 4x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0 (internal & external)
- Supports max. 32 GB DDR4-RAM at 2.666 MHz
- Impressive LED lighting
The ASUS PRIME B360M-K in Detail
The ASUS PRIME B360M-K mATX motherboard comes with one PCIe x16 slot which is connected to the chipset using a full 16 lanes. For upgrades and expansion cards, the board also offers two PCIe x1 slots.
The M.2 slot which is connected using four PCIe 3.0 lanes enables compatibility with the NVMe protocol and, when paired with an M.2 SSD, this unlocks data transfer speeds of up to 4 GB/s. That is nearly eight times faster than on an SSD connected using SATA 6G! Additional drives like SSDs, HDDs and optical drives can be added with the helps of six SATA 3.0 ports. Up to 32 GB of RAM clocked at up to 2.666 MHz can be installed in two DDR4-DIMM slots.
The I/O panel of the ASUS PRIME B360M-K comes with two USB 3.1 ports. USB 3.1 ports are capable of reaching speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s, twice as fast as traditional USB 3.0 ports! Additional peripheral devices can be connected using the two USB 3.0- and two USB 2.0 ports.
The DVI-, and D-Sub connectors allow your processor to output its integrated graphics, and in terms of sound output the board utilises the Realtek ALC887 chip and three 3,5 mm jacks. In terms of the internal connectors of the motherboard, it includes a COM port, power LED and speaker header, two fan connectors, two USB 2.0- as well as a USB 3.0 header. The black ASUS PRIME B360M-K also comes with LEDs.
