ROCK-SOLID PERFORMANCE

With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to fuel the latest AMD RyzenTM CPUs, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF GAMING B550M-E WIFI is the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig.

Stack Cool 3+

2-ounce copper layers draw heat away from critical components to keep them at their optimal operating temperatures and provide more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.

 

TUF COMPONENTS

TUF CHOKES
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability.

 

TUF CAPACITORS
Proprietary capacitors provide up to 52% wider temperature tolerance and 2.5X-longer lifespan.

 

DIGI+ VRM

The integrated DIGI+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.

*Specifications and features vary by model, and all images are illustrative. Please refer to specification and gallery pages for full details.

 

Cooler by design

1. VRM HEATSINK
A large, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.
THERMAL PAD
High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.

2. M.2 HEATSINK
The M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.

3. PCH HEATSINK
Mass and surface area of the heatsink is carefully designed and balanced to maximize thermal dissipation for the latest AMD B550 chipset.

 

COMPREHENSIVE FAN CONTROLS

TUF Gaming B550M-E WIFI features comprehensive fan controls that can be configured via Fan Xpert 2+ utility or via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.

Multiple temperature sources
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 2+ or via the UEFI.?

 

4-pin PWM/DC fan
All onboard chassis fan headers support auto-detection of PWM and DC fans.

 

Smart protection
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent.

Fantastic board for the $$

During my recent upgrade from an Intel i5 system to AMD, I was looking for a board with dual M2 and 4x RAM slots.... was pretty much all I was after. Added this to my basket. Was only after I purchased, I actually read the full features list, and wow, WIfi and Bluetooth! Bonus far as I was concerned. Did have one "noooo" moment while installing, and that was that I could not get it to boot or do an onboard BIOS update with my Ryzen 7 58003DX CPU......... was thinking I'd have to do the whole BIOS upgrade with a suitable CPU etc. But no... silly me... I hadn't quite pushed one of the power connectors in properly - shame :) Once this was...view more

Easy setup. Worked straight out the box and did not require a bios update/flash. Only knock to it is no heatsink for primary M.2 slot and only 2 fan headers. Would suggest a fan controller if you decide to get this MOBO.

What I had to get to Fit the case

Part of a new Build which ended up Black on Black Anti RGB
was the only mother board that met my must haves and was the mATX size that would fit the case that could hold the DVD/Blu-Ray/CD burner!
Most of my issues is with the current batch of 2.5thick graphics cards UGGGH nothing else will fit.
It has been running a dule boot Linux/Windows 11 just happy with the board and the I/O it has it even has a USB C front panel header as well as USB 3.somthing
My last machine is over 7 years old this thing fly's in comparison

A good MATX motherboard for the Ryzen CPU

A pretty fair motherboard for the cost for your AM4 PC build. It has relatively good cooling, durable, has Wi-Fi, 4 fan headers, RGB, and has a PCIe 4 slot that comes with a heatsink. Can't go wrong with this mid range motherboard.
