LGA1155 Intel Ivy Bridge Processor ready
This motherboard supports the Intel Ivy Bridge processors in the LGA1155 package, with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support 2-channel DDR3 memory and 16 PCI Express 2.0 lanes. This provides great graphics performance. Intel Ivy Bridge processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.
PCIe 3.0 ready
The PCI Express bus standard delivers improved encoding for twice the performance of current PCIe 2.0. Total bandwidth for a x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). PCIe 3.0 provides users unprecedented data speeds, combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices.
DIGI+ VRM digital power design
Digital CPU power controls work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response efficiently delivering precision power. Accurate delivery reduces waste, and provides more stable CPU Vcore voltages. Users can adjust CPU PWM voltages and frequencies for various overclocking scenarios, with accurate input through UEFI BIOS tuning or the exclusive ASUS interface. This proprietary design increases overclocking headroom to push performance to its full potential.
Real-time network bandwidth control
With a single-click on/off button, the application currently in use has its data and network bandwidth prioritized over other programs. Moreover, you can prioritize your favorite software easily by configuring profiles through the intuitive user interface. Within the profile, programs can be pre-scheduled to run in a specific time period to avoid network congestion and long-waits on downloads. Auto PPPoE network connection provides a one-step setup for enhanced online convenience. Overall, it's an intuitive network bandwidth control center.
Active quiet and cool
ASUS Fan Xpert intelligently allows users to adjust both the CPU and chassis fan speed according to different ambient temperature, which is caused by different climate conditions in different geographic regions and system loading. Built-in variety of useful profiles offer flexible controls of fan speed to achieve a quiet and cool environment.
Faster USB 3.0 Transmission with UASP
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), the latest USB 3.0 standard. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to an already impressive fast USB 3.0 transfer speed. ASUS software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without the need for any user interaction.
One-stop access to ASUS features
With its user-friendly interface, ASUS AI Suite II consolidates all the exclusive ASUS features into one simple to use software package. It allows users to supervise overclocking, energy management, fan speed control, voltage and sensor readings, and even interact with mobile devices via Bluetooth. This all-in-one software offers diverse and ease to use functions, with no need to switch back and forth between different utilities.
ASUS anti-surge protection
This special design prevents expensive devices and the motherboard from damage caused by power surges from switching power supply (PSU).
System level energy efficiency
The ASUS EPU (Energy Processing Unit) provides total system power management by detecting current PC loadings and intelligently moderating power usage for critical PC components in real-time - helping save power and money!
Flexible and easy BIOS interface
ASUS UEFI BIOS offers a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard only BIOS, to enable more flexible and convenient mouse controls. Users can easily navigate the UEFI BIOS with the same smoothness as their operating system. The exclusive EZ mode displays frequently-accessed setup info, while the advanced mode is for experienced performance enthusiasts that demand far more intricate system settings.
CrashFree BIOS 3In The Box
The ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 allows users to restore corrupted BIOS data from a USB flash disk containing the BIOS file. This utility saves users the cost and hassle of buying a replacement BIOS chip.
