ASUS M5A78L-M Plus overview

  • 1Description

Built with a USB 3.0 controller, the M5A78L-M PLUS/USB3 AM3+ Micro-ATX Motherboard from ASUS is designed to fit in cases that support the micro-ATX form factor. This 9.0 x 9.6" motherboard supports AMD FX, Phenom II, Athlon II, and Sempron 100 Series processors, the AM3+ socket, and the AMD 760G (780L) / SB710 chipset.

The micro-ATX form factor of the M5A78L-M PLUS has eight DIMM slots that are able to support up to 32GB of both ECC and non-ECC unbuffered dual-channel memory modules. The supported memory speeds are 2000 (OC), 1866 (OC), 1800 (OC), 1600 (OC), 1333, and 1066 MHz. There are also a total of six SATA III 6 Gb/s ports. Additionally, there is one PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, one PCIe 2.0 x1 slot, and one PCI slot. USB 3.0 connectivity is integrated with two Type-A ports on the back panel and two at mid-board, as well as four USB 2.0/1.1 ports on the back panel and another four at mid-board. Using the Realtek ALC887 High Definition audio codec, this motherboard can support 8-channel (7 speakers + 1 subwoofer) HD audio.

The M5A78L-M PLUS/USB3 Motherboard is equipped integrated ATI Radeon 3000 graphics that has access to 1GB of shared memory. Video may be output to external displays using either the HDMI, DVI-D, or VGA ports at resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz. There is also support for Hybrid CrossFireX. ASUS has also designed this motherboard with features such as an EPU-4 Engine, Gigabit Ethernet, anti-surge protection, ESD guards, Fan Xpert, EZ Flash 2, and more. This motherboard includes an I/O Shield and two SATA III 6 Gb/s cables. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

AMD FX /Phenom II /Athlon II /Sempron 100 Series Processors (Socket AM3+)
This motherboard supports AMD 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 rates up to 5200 MT/s via HyperTransport 3.0 based system bus. This motherboard also supports AMD CPUs in the 32nm manufacturing process
EPU-4 Engine
The ASUS EPU, a power saving engine, has been upgraded to a 4-engine version, which provides total system power savings by detecting current PC loadings and intelligently moderating power in real-time. The EPU automatically provides the most appropriate power usage for the CPU, VGA card, hard drives, and CPU cooler fan, helping save power and money
ASUS Anti-Surge Protection
Anti-Surge Protection Design detects overvoltage conditions and helps prevent voltage surges from spreading in real time. It also actively cuts off the overvoltage supply to protect the system:
1. Real-time over voltage detection
2. Active protection against potential damage to your motherboards and systems
A special low-radiation design helps shield you from harmful electromagnetic exposure by eliminating some of the radiation
1. Radiation Deduction Design helps minimize harmful electromagnetic radiation output with a circuit design to cancel electrical charges
2. The Radiation Moat Design effectively blocks radiation to help prevent discharge spread
Protect Your Computer with ESD Guards. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) conditions can happen while plugging or unplugging any USB peripherals, causing damage to the computer. ASUS ESD Guards clamp the ESD voltage and shunt the majority of the ESD current away for a more reliable computing environment
USB 3.0
Experience fast data transfers with USB 3.0. Built to connect easily with next-generation components and peripherals, USB 3.0 transfers data up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 components
FAN Xpert
ASUS Fan Xpert intelligently allows you to adjust the CPU and chassis fan speeds according to different ambient temperatures caused by different climate conditions in different geographic regions and your PC's loading. The built-in variety of useful profiles offer flexible controls of fan speed to achieve a quiet and cool environment
EZ-Flash 2
EZ Flash 2 is a user-friendly BIOS update utility. Simply launch this tool and update BIOS from a USB flash disk before entering the OS. You can update your BIOS only in a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy diskette or using an OS-based flash utility
Eight Channel High Definition Audio
Enjoy high-end sound on your PC using the onboard 8-channel HD audio codes that enables high-quality 192 kHz/24-bit audio output, jack-sensing, retasking functions, and multi-streaming technology that simultaneously sends different audio streams to different destinations. You can now talk to your partners via your headphone while playing a multi-channel network game
ErP Ready
The motherboard is European Union's Energy-related Products (ErP) ready, and ErP requires products to meet certain energy efficiency requirements in regards to energy consumptions
