Double-Decker Heatsink

ROG Strix B250I Gaming has an innovative double-decker heatsink design that allows the M.2 SSD to be stacked atop of the PCH heat sink, which is then topped off with an additional metal heatsink for the M.2 drive. The two heatsinks are thermally isolated to prevent the PCH and M.2 from affecting each other. The double decker design not only cleverly maximises the board space on mini ITX board, but also dramatically improves heat dissipation, cooling the M.2 SSD by up to 20°C for better stability and enhanced gaming performance while featuring a stylish angular design to enhance the look of ROG Strix B250I Gaming builds.

Outshine the Competition

ASUS Aura Sync RGB LED technology makes ROG Strix B250I Gaming the control hub for your illumination ambitions — so it's easy to synchronise incredible lighting effects between compatible components, including RGB LED strips, graphics cards, keyboards and even mice! Change all LEDs in unison or employ dynamic modes to flow the illumination effects smoothly across all synchronised devices.

SupremeFX Audio

ROG Strix SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for best-ever recording quality — and 120dB on line-out for crystal-clear sound! ASUS have also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220A codec, plus Texas Instruments RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps for high gain with low distortion. It all adds up to audio that envelops you like never before!

Cooler by Design

Play quieter and cooler with advanced fan and water-pump controls for the ultimate in undisturbed gaming. With onboard thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 4 Core makes sure every fan achieves the best balance of high cooling performance and low noise - so you enjoy all the performance you demand with none of the racket!

More Throughput and Less CPU Usage

ROG Strix B250I Gaming features the very latest Intel Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead while offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for gaming.

Onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

ROG Strix B250I Gaming has next-level 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 dual-band 2.4/5GHz antennas for up to 867Mbps transfer speeds — and the very latest Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology to ensure that every connected user experiences the best wireless and online speeds!

Intel Optane Memory Ready

One M.2 slot on ROG Strix B250I Gaming supports Intel Optane, revolutionary non-volatile memory technology that offers dramatically accelerated data transfer speeds. Optane memory modules make game launch and level load times much faster, so you'll wait less and play more!
