  • 1Description

Create a PC system that is built with a 6th-generation Intel processor and DDR4 memory along with SSDs connected via PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 and SATA Express with the Z170-Deluxe ATX Motherboard from ASUS. This motherboard offers four DIMM slots that support a total of 64GB DDR4 memory modules and overclocks these RAM chips at 3733 MHz. ASUS includes many perks that are not normally available on typical motherboards such as dual LAN controllers and onboard LEDs as well as a macro microprocessor, USB 3.1 type-C port, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a Q-Code display. Moreover, this motherboard offers other features that enhance your components and provide system stability.

This Z170-Deluxe motherboard comes outfitted with three PCIe 3.0 x16 slots so you can install dedicated graphics cards linked via SLI or CrossFireX. Using integrated Intel HD graphics, it delivers visuals through the DisplayPort and HDMI ports. In addition, it has four PCI x1 slots. You can immerse yourself in sounds using your speakers or headset and the Realtek ALC1150 featuring Crystal Sound 3 to complete the multimedia experience. ASUS has equipped this motherboard with five USB 3.1 type-A ports that transfer data to external drives at a rate up to 10 Gb/s. It also provides a single USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port, which can be used for flashing the BIOS. For internal drive support, it offers six SATA III 6 Gb/s ports that can connect to hard drives and optical drives. Included along with this motherboard is a Hyper kit that converts the M.2 slot to support SSDs with a U.2 interface.

5-Way Optimization
The Z170-Deluxe motherboard dynamically optimizes essential aspects of your system based on real-time use to provide CPU performance, everyday energy savings, ultra-stable digital power, and cool and quiet fans. It even adjusts the networking and audio settings for the apps that you are using. In short, 5-Way Optimization ensures that your PC is suitable for gaming, entertainment, productivity, or just about anything else.

  • Helps prevent stutter when running professional apps and heavy loading
  • Energy waste is reduced so you'll save money
TurboV Processing Unit
Increase the system's performance by using the two-phase on-board switch or the AI Suite 3 utility software. The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) offers precise voltage control and advanced monitoring for the CPU and graphics card, enabling you to adjust CPU frequencies and ratios for optimized performance and exploit the potential out of your graphics card.
Energy Processing Unit
This Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically detects and adjusts the power consumption based upon the system's needs. It can reduce the CPU wattage to a set level or even provide more savings with Away Mode, which creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused extra I/O controllers and reduces the power level in graphics cards.
Fan Xpert 3
With thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 3 helps ensure each fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise.
  • Dedicated water-pump header for water-cooling efficiency
  • Auto-Tuning Mode: Scans and detects all fan characteristics for single-click customization
  • Extreme Quiet Mode: Reduces the CPU fan speed to below the default minimum, for quiet operation and power savings during light loads
  • RPM Fixed Mode: Lowers noise levels to near-0dB silence, allowing to you fix the fan's speed
DIGI+ Power Control
The ASUS DIGI+ Power Control complies with Intel's IMVP8 specifications to intelligently detect the processor's power draw so you can increase its overclocking potential, enhance system stability, and improve power efficiency with flexibility and accurate control.
Turbo App
ASUS offers an exclusive Turbo App that features an intuitive panel, which lets you adjust your hardware. You can use it to automatically overclock the processor, tune the fans, prioritize network data, and optimize audio settings.
ASUS PRO Clock technology
ASUS offers a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel processors so you can overclock the base clock frequencies up to or beyond 400 MHz. This custom solution works with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control.
