Industry-leading 5X Protection II employs the finest components, excellent circuit design, and exacting standards to guarantee quality and long-term durability of your motherboard with all-round protection. For you, that means exceptional protection and stability for your build — the result of decades of engineering experience from the world's leading motherboard brand.
ASUS LANGuard is a hardware-level networking protection that employs signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors ensuring a more reliable connection and better throughput, plus electrostatically-guarded and surge-protected components for greater tolerance to static electricity and improved protection against surges.
An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your chipset, connectivity ports, and audio codes from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies.
On-board re-settable fuses prevent over-current and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of both your system and connected devices.
Corrosion-Resistant stainless steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's three times longer than ordinary panels.
Electrostatic discharge 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 protection circuit design to guard your system against electrostatic interference and damage, providing greater component longevity.
With DDR4, you'll accelerate memory frequencies up to an incredible to 2133MHz! And ASUS works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor, so you're assured the best compatibility.
The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you are a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advaned Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
Update the latest BIOS via the internet, and from within the BIOS
Check up your storage 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!
Quickly find tuning options and add preferred tools to the list.
With two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, you'll experience data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s — or twice as fast USB 3.0. USB 3.1 is completely backward-compatible with your existing USB devices, and you'll be all set for USB 3.1's breakneck speeds. And ASUS-exclusive USB 3.1 Boost technology automatically accelerates USB 3.1 performance even further!
Beautiful LED-illuminated trace paths brighten your build and highlight noise-isolated, precision-shielded, interference-eliminated onboard audio like you've never before experienced!
The large winged clip is easy to reach and easy to operate. Just press the Q-Slot clip lightly, and the graphics card just pops out. Installing or removing even the biggest graphics card is no sweat.
Even if you work with a smaller case, just push down on the one-sided clip, then push or pull the RAM module in or out - it couldn't be simpler.
Exclusive Fan Xpert ensures every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise - and with ASUS's 100 series boards and their hardware-level 4-pin/ 3-pin PWM/DC mode for case fans, a simple BIOS adjustment lets you run your case fan in PWM/DC mode. Fan Xpert even includes Auto-Tuning modes to scan and detect all fan characteristics for single-click customisation.
ASUS AI Suite 3 offers a brand-new user experience through a clearer and more attractive interface with support for larger monitors. It consolidates all exclusive ASUS features into one simple-to-use package, allowing you to supervise overclocking, energy consumption, fan speeds, voltages and more. This all-in-one app offers diverse and easy to use functionality, with no need to switch back and forth between different utilities.
