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.


Pumped-Up Throughput. 2.5x Higher Surge Tolerance

ASUS LANGuard is 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.

Overvoltage Protection

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 longer than ordinary panels.

ESD Guards

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.

  • LAN Port: ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN circuit
  • USB Connectors: TVS diodes for surface-mount and dual-inline packages
  • VGA Connectors: Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect D-Sub functionality
  • Keyboard and Mouse Connectors: Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes
