Prime motherboards offer unobtrusive style at an enticing price 

ASUS Prime boards have a hard-earned reputation for delivering essential performance at attainable prices. If you’re shopping for an affordable platform for an Intel 12th Gen build, there’s a Prime motherboard ready to deliver the features and performance you need at a price that won’t break the bank. 

We offer models for a wide range of users. The ASUS Prime 12th Gen lineup includes everything from higher-end Z690 options to entry-level H610 variants. Many are mid-size microATX boards, but if you’re looking for a larger ATX or a compact mini-ITX option instead, we’ve got your needs covered. There are Prime boards ready for the latest DDR5 RAM, and others that support more broadly available DDR4 memory. The ASUS Prime family includes more options than we can cover here in detail, so we encourage you to use the search tools here to find the right Prime motherboard for your needs. 

Unleash your Intel 12th Gen CPU with the ROG Ryujin II ARGB  

Have a CPU cooler that you’re not quite ready to retire yet? To ensure backwards compatibility with as many coolers as possible, our motherboards include LGA 1200-compatible mounting holes in addition to mounting holes for next-gen kits. If you already own one of our AIO liquid coolers, its LGA 1200 retention kit ensures that you’re ready for Z690. Purchase one of our select new AIO liquid coolers, and you’ll find an LGA 1700 mounting kit package in the box. Check this website to find an eligible model. 

For those shopping for an all-new cooler to pair with their all-new CPU, we have a tempting new option: the ROG Ryujin II ARGB. This AIO liquid cooler pairs premium performance with extravagant style. Its 7th Gen Asetek pump, embedded downward-facing pump fan, and fans with our proven Axial-tech design will tame your CPU’s temperatures while staying whisper-quiet. Its integrated 3.5” OLED panel gives you an attention-grabbing canvas for displaying custom graphics or vital system information. To make sure that it fits in a wide range of cases, it’s available with 360mm or 240mm radiators, and with addressable Aura RGB LEDs on the fans, you’ll be able to set up a customizable lighting array for your gaming rig.  

If your CPU cooler was made by another manufacturer, we recommend that you contact them for more information about your specific hardware. Our Z690 motherboards offer the mounting holes for previous-gen LGA1200-compatible cooling systems, but due to the lower z-stack height of the LGA1700 socket, you might need a special bracket. 

Save power without sacrificing performance 

Conscious of the impact that their energy consumption can have on the environment and their monthly energy bill, many builders prioritize efficient operation as they plan out their next PC. We embrace our social responsibility as a leading motherboard manufacturer, so we’re keenly interested in equipping our users with impactful power-saving tools. Today, we’re proud to announce new modes for all of our Z690, H670, B660, and H610 motherboards that reduce their overall energy footprint without diminishing their exceptional performance. 

Even when it’s not under load, your graphics card still draws power. Since even this small amount of energy can add up over time, we’re refining how graphics cards draw power at idle in our 12th Gen motherboards. For example, in our testing we were able to reduce the idle power consumption of an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 by up to 27.9%, and the idle power draw of an AMD Radeon RX 5600XT by up to 35.7%. That adds up to significant savings over those products’ expected lifetime.* 

But that’s not all. With ASUS Performance Enhancement (APE) enabled, you can reduce the power consumption of your Intel 12th Gen CPU, even at full load. In our tests, we were able to reduce power draw by up to 10.7% during CPU benchmarking, all without measurably reducing performance.  

*Actual performance varies by configuration.
