FLEXIBILITY

Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS PRIME series. The PRIME A520 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work to maximize productivity.

Intelligent Control

All-Around Energy Efficiency
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU), you‘ll enjoy system-wide power savings.The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode.
Flexible Cooling Controls
ASUS Fan Xpert software provides comprehensive control over fans. An 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 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.

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.

COOLING

PRIME A520 series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert software or via the UEFI BIOS.

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
Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Storage
M.2 Support (up to 32 Gbps)
M.2 Slot supports data-transfer speed up to 32Gbps* via x4 PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
* Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.

Connectivity

USB 5Gbps
Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including rear-panel USB Type-A connectors with fast USB 5Gbps connectivity for compatible cases.
Realtek 1Gb Ethernet
Realtek 1Gb Ethernet reduces CPU overhead and offers exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfers.

LANGuard
ASUS LANGuard is a hardware-level network protection feature that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput and ensure a more reliable connection.
