All-round protection provides the best quality, reliability, and durability
ASUS motherboards guard your PC with 5x PROTECTION. They use quality components like DIGI+ VRM digital power design for precise CPU power on demand, ESD units tested to strict standards that eliminate electrostatic interference, and resettable fuses around DRAM slots to prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage.
Precise power control and long-lasting stability
Voltage regulator modules (VRMs) are among the most essential motherboard components. A good VRM intelligently delivers CPU power based on actual needs at any given time. ASUS was first with digital power design featuring faster sensing and response to deliver precise CPU power on demand. This great accuracy reduces energy waste and of course improves system stability thanks to more consistent delivery.
Short-circuit damage prevention
Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard system and device lifespan.
Strong ESD protection for extended component lifespan
Electrostatic discharges (ESD) can happen suddenly, and their damaging effects are often underestimated. ASUS ESD Guards offer an active protective circuit design that ensures electrostatic discharges are properly grounded, providing greater component longevity.
3x more durable corrosion-resistant coating
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 anti-corrosive properties.
Exclusive EZ mode adds useful info to become even easier
Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS provides the smoothest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS, and now features more intuitive functions to quickly take you to favorite BIOS pages and frequently-accessed settings through custom shortcuts. You can even write quick notes in-BIOS for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports.
One press to apply and access frequent settings
Now you can customize your own shortcut log by pressing F4 or right clicking to create shortcuts to frequently-used settings. Instantly access them by simply hitting the F3 hotkey.
You no longer need to have a pen and paper notepad around. Quick Note works inside the BIOS so you can just type remarks and ideas to help you remember important settings info and save time on trial and error.
Always forget those important BIOS changes you did? This friendly function creates a tuning log to track your BIOS settings history, which can be saved onto a USB drive.
SATA port renaming
You can rename your SATA ports for easy identification, including by usage scenario. Get greater convenience and spend less time on finding the right devices when you want to change settings.
Comprehensive controls for the perfect cool and quiet balance
Seeing an opportunity for more fine-tuned control, hardware-level ASUS Fan Xpert 2 featuring Fan Auto Tuning, providing an tailored fan speed setting for each fan with the exclusive, automatic fan speed detection to achieve the best balance of cooling performance and low noise. It even provides a "RPM Fixed Mode" for users who wish to reduce noise levels to near 0dB with a specific fan speed control.
Fan auto tuning mode
Scans fan parameters through exclusive automatic speed detection to provide custom settings for each fan with a single click. This achieves the best cooling for your components beyond just the mere number of fans in your case. Fan Xpert 2 provides individual data and control for each fan connected to your motherboard as well as built-in fan profiles to deliver cooling that is as automated or as customizable as you need it to be.
