1.7x faster than traditional USB 3.0
ASUS USB 3.0 boost supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) standard for major time savings when moving large files such as HD videos. It accelerates data transfers by up to 1.7x when compared to normal USB 3.0 speeds, leading the industry in USB 3.0 transmission speeds.
DIGI+ VRM digital power design
ASUS motherboards using the Intel H61 chipset employ precise digital voltage regulation for the CPU, called DIGI+ VRM (Voltage Regulation Modules) digital power design. The CPU voltage and VRM frequency are adjusted via either carefully developed automated modes, or by using user-defined profiles. The effect is that DIGI+ VRM technology ensures greater energy efficiency and the best possible PC stability. Boosted by world-renowned ASUS quality, it creates an ideal computing platform for a diverse range of applications, from gaming to multimedia or office work and heavy multitasking. Engineered and tested to assure unmitigated performance, ASUS H61 boards with DIGI+ VRM remain efficient and stability, for reliable application in every scenario.
Extra durable stainless steel back I/O
ASUS motherboard back I/O panels are made from strong and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which is bonded with a thin layer of chromium oxide to enhance the anti-corrosion properties. That's why ASUS stainless steel back I/O panels have a usage life three times longer compared to ordinary panels.
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 coolIn The Box
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 offers flexible controls of fan speed to achieve a quiet and cool environment.
