Stability

LANGuard
ASUS LANGuard is hardware-level networking protection that employs signal-coupling technology and 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
A 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 help prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to help safeguard the lifespan of both your system and connected devices
DIGI+ VRM
ASUS DIGI+ VRM 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 lasts 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. An active protective circuit design is employed to help guard your system against electrostatic interference and damage, providing greater component longevity

Fast Transfer Speeds

SATA Express
SSDs typically use up to 550 MB/s of bandwidth, which is close to saturation point for SATA III 6 Gb/s connections. Backwardly compatible with up to two SATA drives, SATA Express helps ensure that you and your system won't get left behind
M.2
With PCI Express 3.0/2.0 x4 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32 Gb/s data-transfer speeds. It is well-suited for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible
Front-Panel USB 3.0
We've put USB 3.0 right where you need it - two ports on the front panel. Experience data-transfer speeds up to 10x faster than USB 2.0 with instant plug-and-play connectivity
USB Type-C
USB Type-C (USB-C) delivers device compatibility and high-speed USB connectivity of up to 5 Gb/s from a slim and reversible port

Gaming Audio

Noise Isolation
Audio shielding helps ensure precision analog/digital separation and reduced multi-lateral interference. Separate layers for left and right tracks also help ensure both channels deliver audio of consistent and equal quality
Audio Enjoyment
Japanese audio capacitors provide warm, natural, and immersive sound with strong clarity and fidelity

PC DIY

Motherboard Mounting
Fitting your ASUS motherboard is safe. The comprehensive component-free 'safe zones' around every case-mounting hole helps minimize the risk of damage and short circuits caused by contact
Q-Slot - PCI Express Component Removal
