Power Features

Power Design

8+1 power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that Intel 12th-generation processors can take full advantage of. The motherboard's high-grade alloy chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures.

Power Control

The Digi+ voltage regulator module (VRM) ensures smooth and clean power delivery to the CPU, while the motherboard's multi-layered printed circuit board design quickly dissipates heat around the VRM to improve overall system stability and provide the CPU with greater overclocking headroom. Additionally, the ASUS ProCool socket is designed to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines, enabling lower impedance and better heat dissipation.

Cooling Design

The ROG Strix B660-I motherboard features a dedicated pair of PWM/DC fan headers for CPU coolers as well as a dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups. Three M.2 heatsinks help keep a mounted M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability, and each chassis header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Intelligent Control

Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation

This powerful ASUS-exclusive utility leverages a deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone and incoming audio while preserving voices. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks, and other ambient noises are removed so you can hear and be heard with clarity while gaming or during calls.

AI Cooling

AI cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down. AI cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current loads. Under stable system loads, the software automatically lowers fan speeds to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance.

AI Networking

The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. GameFirst VI analyzes usage patterns and the digital signatures of your applications and adds them to a database of over 200,000 apps. This allows GameFirst VI to switch application priority and adjust bandwidth, depending on the situation. When gaming, it accelerates and prioritizes game packets to give you smooth online gameplay. An intuitive graph provides an overview of real-time network status. Simply click on the tab to view the current bandwidth usage of each application, the geolocation status of each network connection, or an analysis of
the Wi-Fi channels.

UEFI BIOS

The ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC building and more comprehensive features for seasoned veterans. For added convenience, MemTest86m has been pre-installed into the ROG UEFI. Run the test to pinpoint memory issues with just one click, without needing to insert a USB stick or load an operating system. Additionally, the UEFI features EZ mode which presents vital settings and stats on a single page. With guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings, your system will be up and running in no time.

Connectivity
