Asus B250 MINING EXPERT Mining Expert is the world's first mining motherboard to feature 19 PCI Express (PCIe) slots. With 18 PCIe x1 and one PCIe x16 slots on board, plus three zoned ATX12V power connectors, B250 Mining Expert lets you run up to 19 NVIDIA or AMD GPUs in parallel to max out your megahash rates.
Asus B250 Mining Expert has been engineered to provide all the power your GPUs demand, cleanly and efficiently. The 19 PCIe slots are grouped into three distinct zones, each powered by its own, dedicated 24-pin ATX12V power connector reducing wiring complexity and ensuring ample power delivery to all PCIe slots.
Stable, low-noise power is a serious benefit for 24/7 cryptocurrency mining. That's why we've engineered B250 Mining Expert with 19 decoupling capacitors. These quality components smooth voltages and reduce high-frequency noise, so your GPUs get the good-quality power delivery needed for reliable operation.
B250 Mining Expert has built-in smarts to show the status of each and every graphics card from the moment you power up. The moment the Power-On, Self-Test (POST) screen appears, you'll see a graphical representation of the status of every slot so you'll know instantly if there's a problem or whether your mining operation is good to go.
Unlike some rival boards, B250 Mining Expert has a special Mining Mode that's enabled by default, removing the hassle of having to make BIOS-level changes that are necessary to maximize mining performance. Mining Mode sets the PCI Express speed to PCIe 1.0 and disables the Compatibility Support Module, so you get the best stability and compatibility right out of the gate.
B250 Mining Expert is equipped with Intel Gigabit Ethernet for the best throughput and lower CPU overhead, ensuring optimum performance from your mining rig. ASUS-exclusive LANGuard employs advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput protecting the B250 Mining Expert from lightning strikes and static electricity.
B250 Mining Expert boasts unrivaled cost-effectiveness. The ability to run up to 19 GPUs from one board eliminates the costly investment in additional CPUs, memory and drives that would be required to create equivalent mining resources using competitor motherboards so you spend less to mine more.
With so many slots available, B250 Mining Expert gives you the means to push for higher hash rates. With 16 slots occupied our laboratory tests generated results of up to 342MH/s and up to 407MH/s* with 19 GPUs in operation.
More hashes means more cryptocurrency creation and that means more money from your mining operation. Compared to some 6-slot motherboards B250 Mining Expert delivers a TCO saving of up to US$1.83* per megahash-generation potential.
