5X Protection II employs fine components, excellent circuit design, and high standards to guarantee quality and long-term durability of your motherboard with all-round protection. For you, that means exceptional protection and stability for your build - the result of decades of engineering experience from the famous motherboard brand.
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.
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
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.
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
Corrosion-resistant stainless steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's much longer than ordinary panels.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. ASUS ESD Guards employ an active protective circuit design to guard your system against electrostatic interference and damage, providing greater component longevity.
Check up your storages devices' Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T) logs to gauge reliability, and even determine if they're about to fail.
You can configure the fan's operating speed manually, or use the easy pre-configured fan profiles to select Standard, Silent, Turbo, or Full Speed modes.
Instant front-panel USB 3.0 experience
USB 3.0 is right where you need it - two super-speed ports on the front panel. Experience much faster data-transfer speeds than USB 2.0 with instant Plug-and-Play connectivity, so no more back-breaking contortions in the hunt for hard-to-reach rear ports.
Gear up and win the battlefield
Beautiful LED-illuminated trace paths brighten your build and highlight noise-isolated, precision-shielded, interference-eliminated onboard audio.
Brighten up your build with the gorgeous illuminated audio trace path.
Audio shielding ensures precision analog / digital separation and greatly reduced multi-lateral interference. Separate layers for left and right tracks ensures both channels deliver consistent, equal quality.
Safe motherboard mounting
Fitting your ASUS motherboard is very safe. The comprehensive component-free 'safe zones' around every case-mounting hole minimizes the risk of damage and short circuits caused by contact - so you'll assemble your PC with total confidence.
The large winged clip is easy to reach and easy to operate. Just press the Q-Slot clip lightly, and graphics card just pop out. Installing or removing even very big graphics cards is no sweat.
