Designed to break performance barriers, ASUS OC Socket utilises extra pins to connect a proprietary circuit to contacts found on land grid array (LGA). Combined with our customised UEFI, this exclusive feature enables higher DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies and enhanced stability while overclocking, extending all the way to extreme overclocking conditions, such as liquid nitrogen (LN2). OC Socket is 100% compatible with all LGA 2011-v3 CPUs, ensuring the ideal combination of overclocking performance and compatibility.
The cache bus links areas such as CPU cores, DDR4 memory controllers, system agent and the shared L3 cache - so it's a critical interconnect for the whole CPU subsystem. A higher cache-bus frequently directly accelerates subsystem performance, so ASUS OC Socket exclusively provides an adjustable cache-bus voltage to reach higher cache bus frequencies.
ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design plus OC Socket provides a superb memory-overclocking capability to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimising coupling noise and signal reflection. With innovative equidistant memory channels it delivers the most balanced control and powerful overclocking compatibility. ASUS works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor to ensure the best compatibility.
You don't need to be an expert to max out gaming performance on your ROG Strix X99 Gaming build's gaming performance - because 5-Way Optimisation sorts all the complex settings with a click, for instant, highly-controllable performance boost! Our exclusive technology dynamically optimises essential aspects of your system based on real-time use, so you get superb CPU performance, everyday energy savings, ultra-stable digital power, cool and quiet fans and even networking and audio settings that are tailored for the apps that you are using. In short, 5-way Optimisation ensures that your PC is perfect fr gaming, entertainment, productivity or just about anything else.
