ASUS 5X Protection
All-round protection provides the best quality, reliability, and durability
ASUS motherboards guard your PC with 5X Protection. We use quality components like DIGI+ VRM
digital power design for precise CPU power on demand, ESD units tested to strict standards that
eliminate electrostatic interference, and resettable fuses around DRAM slots to prevent overcurrent
and short-circuit damage. We also use corrosion-resistant back I/O shields, all examples of ASUS
providing the best possible reliability and durability.
New UEFI BIOS friendlier and more Intuitive
Exclusive EZ Mode adds useful info to become even easier
Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS provides the smoothest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS,
and now features more intuitive functions to quickly take you to favorite BIOS pages and
frequently-accessed settings through custom shortcuts. You can even write quick notes in-BIOS
for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports.
EZ Mode has a whole new look, upgraded with extra-friendly capabilities like detailed fan controls,
XMP profile settings, SATA information, and fast clock adjustment. Together, these perfect your BIOS experience.
