ASUS LANGuard is hardware-level networking protection that employs signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors, helping to ensure 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 help 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 helps 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
DIGI+ VRM intelligently delivers power to the processor based on real-time demands, helping to reduce energy waste and improve system stability
Stainless-Steel Back I/O
Corrosion-resistant stainless steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's up to three times (3X) 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 high standards, capable of up to ±10kV for air discharge and ±6kV for contact discharge. ASUS employs an active protective circuit design to guard your system against electrostatic interference and damage, providing greater component longevity.

LAN Port - ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN circuit
USB Connectors - TVS diodes for surface-mount and dual-inline packages
VGA Connectors - Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect D-Sub functionality Keyboard and Mouse Connectors - Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes
1,000+ Compatible Devices
Including CPUs, memory modules, graphics cards, and more
DDR3 / DDR3L Compatibility
More flexibility, more compatibility - support for DDR3 and DDR3L
