EMI cover Surface-mounted
World-class circuit-protecting power design
An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your chipset, connectivity ports, and audio codecs from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies.
DRAM Overcurrent Protection
Short-circuit damage prevention
Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of both your system and connected devices.
Precision control for stable power
ASUS-exclusive DIGI+ VRM intelligently delivers power to the processor based on real-time demands, reducing energy waste and improving system stability.
Stainless-Steel Back I/O
3X corrosion-resistance for greater durability
Corrosion-resistant stainless steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's three times (3X) longer than ordinary panels.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. ASUS ESD Guards are tested to very high standards, capable of up to +/- 10kV for air discharge and +/-6kV for contact discharge. We employ an active protective circuit design to guard your system against electrostatic interference and damage, providing greater component longevity.
ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN circuit.
TVS diodes for surface-mount and dual-inline packages.
Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect D-Sub functionality.
Keyboard and mouse connectors
Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes.
Including CPUs, memory modules,
graphics cards and more.
More flexibility, more compatibility
- support for DDR3 and DDR3L.
7000+ Validation Hours
Extensive testing for extreme reliability,
compatibility and safety.
Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS
The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
EZ Flash 3
Update the latest BIOS via the internet, and from within the BIOS.
Check up your storages devices' Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T) logs to gauge reliability, and even determine if they're about to fail.
You can configure the fan's operating speed manually, or use the easy pre-configured fan profiles to select Standard, Silent, Turbo, or Full Speed modes!
Track last change and save preferred profiles onto a USB drive.
SATA Port Renaming:
Rename SATA ports for easy identification.
Ultrafast Transfer Speed
M.2 With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbit/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible.
Instant front-panel USB 3.0 Experience
We've put USB 3.0 right where you need it — four super-speed ports on the front panel. Experience data-transfer speeds up to 10X faster than USB 2.0 with instant plug-and-play connectivity, so no more back-breaking contortions in the hunt for hard-to-reach rear ports!
Gear up! Win the battlefield
Audio shielding ensures precision analog/digital separation and greatly reduced multi-lateral interference.
Separate layers for left and right tracks ensures both channels deliver consistent, equal quality.
Premium Japanese audio capacitors provide warm, natural, and immersive sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.
