This motherboard is the European Union's Energy-related Products-rating (ErP) ready- the ErP requires products to meet certain energy efficiency requirements as it regards energy consumption. This is in line with the ASUS vision of creating environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient products through product design and innovation to reduce our carbon footprint and thus mitigate our environmental impact.
Simply Update BIOS from a USB Flash Disk before Entering the OS
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 in only a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy diskette or using an OS-based flash utility.
Enjoy a high-end sound system on your PC! The onboard eight-channel HD audio (previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz / 24-bit audio output, jack-sensing feature, retasking functions and multi-streaming technology that simultaneously sends different audio streams to different destinations. You can now talk to your partners on the headphone while playing multi-channel network games. All of these are done on one computer.
**Use the chassis with HD audio module in the front panel to support eight-channel audio output.
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.
The new ASUS EPU - the world's first power saving engine, has been upgraded to a new four-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.
Anti-Surge Protection Design detects overvoltage conditions and prevents 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.
The BIOS C.P.R. feature automatically restores the CPU default settings when the system hangs due to overclocking failure. C.P.R. eliminates the need to open the system chassis and clear the RTC data. Simply shut down and reboot the system, and the BIOS automatically restores the CPU parameters to their default settings.
This motherboard supports AMD® AM3+ multi-core processors with unique 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 5200MTps via HyperTransport™ 3.0 based system bus. This motherboard also supports AMD® CPUs in the new 32nm manufacturing process.
