Asus Prime family motherboards use a set of special features and capabilities using global standards. The Asus Prime A320M-K with AMD AMD A320 chipset, DDR4 RAM support, and two memory slots is a motherboard suitable for use in mid-range and mid-range systems.
Support for DDR4 RAMs makes this model increase the memory frequency to 3200 MHz.
Also, the socket is installed in this AM4 motherboard and can support seventh-generation processors.
The Prime A320M-K is a product from the ASUS brand. This motherboard uses AMD’s A320 chipset and can be fitted with the company’s seventh-generation A-series, Athlon, and Ryzen processors.
The socket for installing the processor on the Prime A320M-K motherboard is the AM4 model, which makes it possible to install slave mail processors. Like all new generation motherboards, the Prime A320M-K motherboard supports DDR4 RAM.
There are two RAM slots on the motherboard, which indicates that the target market of the motherboard is administrative, and a maximum of 32 GB of RAM with a frequency of 3200 MHz can be installed on them.
An M.2 slot is built into the motherboard, allowing NVMe M.2 cards to be used.
Asus has used two graphics ports, VGA and HDMI, for this product, so that you can use the motherboard without buying a graphics card.
A graphics card slot for the Prime A320M-K motherboard uses Asus SafeSlot Core proprietary technology.
Slots equipped with this technology use a special injection method in which a hooked metal blade is integrated into the plastic slot to increase the slot’s resistance to the installation of heavy graphics cards.
Almost all output ports of the Prime A320M-K motherboard are protected against electrostatic discharge.
Asus uses ESD Guards for this type of protection, in which the parts can withstand up to 10 kV air discharge and 6 kV contact evacuation.
In terms of cooling, we see the use of Asus Fan Xpert technology in the Prime A320M-K motherboard.
This technology allows fans to work in different parts of the computer with an optimal ratio of speed and noise.
In fact, Fan Xpert optimizes one fan for all fans to work in different conditions.
Ports and slots
As we said, the above model uses two memory slots, which makes it easy to install 32 GB of RAM on it.
In addition, there is an M.2 slot for the above motherboard, so that you can enjoy the extraordinary transfer speed and run programs in the fastest possible way.
Asus also has two VGA and HDMI ports in this model so that you can connect your monitor directly to the motherboard image output without a separate graphics card.
It is worth mentioning that this product supports 4 USB 3.1 ports and two USB 2.0 ports so that you can easily install peripherals on your motherboard and use the best possible speed for data transfer and information.
Audio and cooling system
One of the factors to consider when buying a motherboard is the cooling system.
Therefore, in the above model, Asus uses Fan Xpert technology to provide full monitoring of the cooling system capabilities for the user, and you will be able to identify and check the specifications of all fans with just one click.
This motherboard is equipped with a Realtek ALC887 sound card, and also the powerful Japanese capacitors used in it have resulted in excellent sound quality and very high clarity during the game.
One of the special features of this model is the support of AI Suite 3. With this technology, you can easily access all parts of software and hardware.
This program provides a variety of easy features such as the ability to monitor overclocking, control various system parameters, and quickly apply the desired settings to its audience.
