What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS PRIME B450-PLUS ATX Motherboard
  • There is a bigger gap below the main PCIE slot, as most newer graphics cards are extra thick - this means the next PCI slot is not obscured - nifty!
  • This has the nextgen USB 3.1 ports (coloured green) for high speed devices - supposed to move from 5GB/s to 10!
  • There is a USB-C connector (which I needed), headers for front-mounted USB-3, and 4x PWM fan headers as well as a CPU/Waterpump header - perfect.
  • It looks decent, has a lot of ports as i needed. Recommended!
  • No installation support for Win7. It says 2 USB ports are usb2.0 , but don't work with Win7 installation disc at all. No chance to change anything in bios to make it working.
ASUS TUF B450-Plus Gaming Gaming Motherboard
