The ASUS 970 Pro Gaming/Aura AM3+ ATX Motherboard lets you build an AMD gaming system running on NVIDIA or AMD graphics. It comes with an AMD 970 chipset along with an AM3+ socket to support AMD's FX, Phenom II, Athlon II, and Sempron 100 series of processors. With an ATX form factor, this motherboard features two PCIe 2.0 x16, two PCIe 2.0 x1, and two PCI slots as well as four DIMM slots, which can support up to 32GB of 2133 MHz DDR3 memory. The 970 Pro has six SATA III 6 Gb/s ports and a single M.2 Socket 3 that supports SATA and PCIe-based SSDs. It can also deliver 8-channel HD audio through the six audio jacks, utilizing SupremeFX technology.

To personalize and protect your system, the ASUS 970 Pro has been designed with LANGuard, overcurrent protection, Aura LED lighting, and more. It comes with eight USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.1 ports that transmit data at a rate of 10 Gb/s. There's also an RJ45 jack that connects it to the Internet at Gigabit speeds.

AMD 970
The AMD 970 chipset is designed to support up to 4800MT HyperTransport 3.0 interface speeds and PCI Express 2.0 x16 graphics. It is optimized with AMD's AM3+ sockets and multi-core CPUs to provide solid system performance and overclocking capabilities.
AMD AM3+ FX/Phenom II/Athlon II/Sempron 100 Series Processors
This motherboard supports AMD AM3+/AM3 multi-core processors with L3 cache and delivers better overclocking capabilities with less power consumption. It features dual-channel DDR3 memory support and accelerates data transfer rate up to 4800 MT/s via the HyperTransport 3.0 system bus. This motherboard also supports AMD CPUs in the 32nm manufacturing process.
Customizable RGB LED Illumination
You can customize the onboard LED lighting with six effects that include Static, Breathing, Strobing, Color cycle, and Music effect. Additionally, the color's shade can indicate the processor's temperature.
Intel Gigabit Ethernet
The Intel I211-AT Gigabit LAN controller comes with features that enhances the TCP and UDP throughput and reduces the processor's workload so you can have a smoother gaming experience. Network connectivity is protected with LANGuard, which guards against static electricity and surges. Furthermore, ASUS includes GameFirst IV Beta so you can team the wired LAN and an optional Wi-Fi card.
SupremeFX technology delivers high-fidelity, near-lossless audio and a signal-to-noise ratio of 115dB. To ensure the audio stays pure, the Realtek ALC1150 codec is equipped a shielded design, an electromagnetic-interference (EMI) cover, and a voltage-protected 5V power supply. Other notable features include a 300Ω headphone amplifier and Nichicon audio capacitors.
The UEFI BIOS features a mouse-controlled graphical interface so you can easily overclock and monitor the internal components. It comes with EZ and Advanced modes that offer settings based upon your expertise. Within these settings, you may update the BIOS or restore the PC with a corrupted BIOS to working order.
Precise and stable power is delivered to the processor with the help of a DIGI+ VRM chipset, which intelligently determines the amount based on real-time demands, reducing energy waste and improving system stability. ESD Guards are used to deploy an active protective circuit design that prevents electrostatic interference and damage for the motherboard's ports and jacks. In the event of a short circuit, onboard resettable fuses are available to start your system again. In addition, ASUS has built this motherboard with chokes and 10K capacitors as well as a stainless-steel I/O panel.
Additional Features
Q-Shield - protect your hands from nicks and cuts while installing the I/O shield
Q-Slot - a large winged clip provides easy installation or removal of a PCI card
Q-DIMM - install or remove memory modules by pushing the one-sided clip
Q-LED - four LEDs indicate problems with the processor, memory, graphics card, or boot device
Sonic Radar II - a visual overlay showing where opponents and teammates are located
RAMCache - turns the RAM in a virtual drive that provides data instantly
AI Suite 3 - a dashboard-style panel to control the performance, cooling, stability, efficiency, and lighting of your system
FAN Xpert3 - achieves the best balance of high cooling performance and low noise with two onboard thermal sensors and hardware-level four mode detection
USB 3.1 Boost - accelerates the USB 3.1 ports for sequential read/write speeds of up to 854.6 MB/s/863.9 MB/s
