Stability

5X Protection II
- Surge-Protected Networking
- Overvoltage Protection
- ESD Guards
- Overcurrent Protection
- Stainless-Steel Back I/O
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 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 help 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
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 very 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
