Flexible Cooling Controls

Fan Xpert software provides comprehensive control over system fans. Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces chassis fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.

 

Precise Digital Power Control

The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

 

UEFI BIOS

The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Advanced Mode - Advanced Tuning for Serious Tweakers

An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various Advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.

- Search Function - Quickly and easily find the option or setting you need.
- ASUS User Profile - Port configuration settings between different BIOS versions or share them with friends.

 

EZ Mode - Quick and Simple Setup

EZ mode displays vital settings and stats and also offers guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings - all to help you get your rig up and running in no time.

- Intuitive Graphical Fan Control - Fine-tune individual fan settings simply by dragging a curve with the mouse.
- EZ XMP - Improve DRAM performance with one click.

 

Cooler by Design

PRIME A520M-K is engineered with an array of hybrid fan headers and features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert software or via the UEFI BIOS, ensuring your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.

- Multiple Temperature Sources - Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.
- Smart Protection - A dedicated integrated circuit protects the fan header from overheating and overcurrent.
- 4-Pin PWM/DC Fan - The onboard chassis fan header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fan.

Build on a Solid Foundation

Prime A520 motherboard provides all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options.

M.2 (up to 32 Gbps) - Achieve speed with onboard M.2

M.2 Slot supports data-transfer speed up to 32Gbps via x4 PCI Express® 3.0 bandwidth. It's the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, providing fast access to data.

 

USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A

Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including four rear-panel USB Type-A connectors with fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 connectivity for compatible cases.

 

Little Things Make a Big Difference

Prime A520 series adds the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive interface that let you customize your system to create a unique personal look.

Outstanding Audio - Combined onboard features deliver elevated audio

Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything you've ever experienced.

- Audio Shielding - Separates analog/digital signal domains, significantly reducing multi-lateral interference.
- Separate Layer for Left and Right Tracks - Ensures minimal crosstalk between audio paths.

Armoury Crate provides control of settings for ASUS products, including keyboard and mouse preferences. This software even features dedicated product registration and highlight to help you stay in touch with the ASUS community.

 

SafeSlot Core - Fortified PCIe slot prevents damage

SafeSlot Core is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot. Featuring a fortified design that's anchored to the motherboard by a special hook, SafeSlot Core provides 1.6x stronger retention and 1.3x greater shearing resistance than standard expansion slots.

 

ASUS Prime motherboards have strengthened solder points around both the PCIe and DIMM pins.

 

Overvoltage Protection - World-class circuit-protecting power design

An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your motherboard from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies.

 

DRAM Overcurrent Protection - Short-circuit damage prevention

Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.

 

Stainless-Steel Back I/O - 3X corrosion-resistance for greater durability

Corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's three times longer than ordinary panels.

 

LANGuard - Pumped-up throughput 2.5X higher surge tolerance
