World’s First 19-Slot Mining Motherboard
Max out your megahash rates!
ASUS B250 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!
*Please refer to the FAQ for 19-GPUs configuration of B250 MINING EXPERT.
Triple-ATX12V Power Delivery
Engineered to deliver the power your graphics cards need
Stable, low-noise power for your GPUs
PCIe Slot State Detection
Easy management and debugging
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.
Mining Mode BIOS Optimization
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.
Best Network Performance
Intel Gigabit LAN and ASUS LANGuard
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.

Higher hash rates
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!
* Performance depends on precise hardware configuration and operating environment. Actual results will vary.
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.
* Saving depends on precise cost of hardware and operating environment. Actual results will vary.
