**B Grade** Prime B360M-A Intel B360 (Socket 1151) DDR4 Micro-ATX Motherboard
B Grade items may have been used, have damaged packaging, missing accessories or a combination of these (Motherboards may be missing I/O shields).
Some items may have scuff marks or slight scratches but should otherwise be an operable product.
The Intel B360 chipset of the ASUS PRIME B360M-A motherboard is designed to work with 8000- series Intel Coffee Lake CPUs. The chipset natively supports an M.2 slot over PCIe to enable compatibility with ultra fast NVMe SSDs as well as Intel Optane. Socket 1151 motherboards with the B360 chipset make a great basis for a budget gaming PC or computer for the home office.
The Features of the ASUS PRIME B360M-A at a Glance:
- 1x PCIe (3.0) x16 & 2x PCIe (3.0) x1
- 2x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4 / SATA) / 6x SATA 6G
- 2x USB 3.1 Type A on I/O Panel
- Total of 3x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0 (internal & external)
- Supports max. 64 GB DDR4-RAM at 2.666 MHz
- LED lighting & RGB-LED header for ASUS Aura Sync
The ASUS PRIME B360M-A in Detail
The ASUS PRIME B360M-A mATX motherboard offers one PCIe x16 slot which is connected to the chipset via 16 full lanes. Upgrades and expansion cards can be installed thanks to the board's two PCIe x1 slots.
Both M.2 slots are connected using four PCIe 3.0 lanes to support the blazing fast NVMe protocol, enabling data transfer rates of almost 4 GB/s when paired with a compatible M.2 SSD. This is roughly eight times fast than an SSD connected using SATA 6G! Additional drives like SSDs, HDDs and optical drives can be connected using the six SATA 3.0 ports. Up to 64 GB of RAM clocked at 2.666 MHz can be installed in four DDR4-DIMM slots.
The I/O panel of the ASUS PRIME B360M-A 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 USB 3.0 ports! Additional peripheral devices can be connected using the two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 port, this part uses the thinner Type C style, meaning devices can be inserted in either orientation.
DVI-, D-Sub- and HDMI- connections allow display output via the integrated GPU of the processor. To output onboard sound, this motherboard uses three 3,5 mm jacks. In terms of internal connectors the motherboard provides, among other things, a COM port-, TPM-, power LED, a speaker header, three fan connectors, two USB 2.0 headers and one USB 3.0 header. The motherboard offers an RGB-LED header to allow users to install and customise additional LEDs via ASUS Aura Sync.
