PRIME Z370M-PLUS II
ASUS Prime 300 Series motherboards provide the solid foundation needed for your first build, plus flexibility to grow with your ambitions. We've melded all the good stuff that's packed into the latest processors with essential ASUS design and engineering, so you benefit from industry-leading technologies which includes automated system tuning, comprehensive cooling controls, and immersive onboard audio
Speed up with onboard M.2
With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds. It's the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, providing fast access to data.
Experience data-transfer speeds up to 10X faster than USB 2.0 with instant plug-and-play connectivity, and avoid back-breaking contortions in the hunt for hard-to-reach rear ports.
Reliable stability and compatibility
ASUS motherboards are extensively tested for compatibility with more than 1,000 components and devices, and each new model undergoes a minimum of 8,000 hours of strict validation.
Beyond VR ready
The ASUS Beyond VR Ready marque means that Prime 300 series has been tested with loads of class-leading components to ensure that your productivity, gaming and entertainment needs are tuned for maximum performance.
Cooler by design
Prime 300 Series features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via ASUS Fan Xpert software or the UEFI BIOS.
- Multiple temperature sources: Each header can monitor and react to dedicated thermal sensors.
- 4-pin PWM/DC fan: A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
Improved DDR4 stability
ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology trace layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots.
All-round energy efficiency
The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
Flexible cooling controls
With Prime 300 Series motherboards you have comprehensive control over fans, water pumps, and even all-in-one (AIO) coolers ― all via Fan Expert 4 Core. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click.
Intel Optane memory ready
Intel Optane™ is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by Prime 300 Series motherboards. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.
