ProCool Socket (Enhanced EATX 8-Pin Socket)
Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. They are solid and more durable, with lower impedance, which helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

OptiMem II Support - DDR4 OC 4266 MHz+
To provide Intel's latest processors' access to memory bandwidth, ASUS has reimagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up. Their OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, ASUS has employed a customized T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signaling.

ASUS OptiMem Benefits
Improved memory stability and compatibility, allows lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages, and improved memory frequency margins.
