M5A78L-M LX V2 DDR3 1866(O.C.) Motherboard with EPU power optimization on AM3+ Platform • EPU - System Level Energy Saving! • Turbo Key - Touch-n-Boost! • Anti-surge - Protect Your Device! • Core Unlocker - Unleash True Core Performance Intelligently! AMD® FX™ /Phenom™II /Athlon™II /Sempron™ 100 Series EPU-4 Engine Processors (Socket AM3+) System Level Energy Saving The new ASUS EPU - the world’s first power saving engine, has been upgraded to a new 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. This motherboard supports AMD® AM3+ multicore 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 5200MT/s via HyperTransport™ 3.0 based system bus. This motherboard also supports AMD® CPUs in the new 32nm manufacturing process. Core Unlocker Turbo Key Unleash True Core Performance Intelligently ASUS Turbo Key allows the user to turn the PC power button ASUS Core Unlocker simplifies the activation of a latent into a physical overclocking button. After the easy setup, AMD® CPU—with just a simply key. Enjoy an instant performance boost by simply unlocking the extra cores, without performing complicated BIOS changes. Turbo Key can boost performances without interrupting ongoing work or games - with just one touch!! ESD ASUS Anti-Surge Protection Protect Your Computer with ESD Guards. Electrostatic Anti-Surge Protection Design detects overvoltage conditions discharge (ESD) conditions can happen while plugging or unplugging any USB peripherals-causing damage to the and prevents voltage surges from spreading in real time. It also actively cuts off the overvoltage supply to protect the computer. ASUS ESD Guards clamp the ESD voltage and shunt the majority of the ESD current away for a more reliable computing environment. system. 1. Real-time over voltage detection. 2. Active protection against potential damage to your motherboards and systems. 8-channel high definition audio C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall) Enjoy high-end sound system on your PC! The onboard 8channel HD audio (High Definition Audio, previously The BIOS C.P.R. feature automatically restores the CPU default settings when the system hangs due to overclocking codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz/24 -bit audio output, jack-sensing feature, retasking functions failure. C.P.R. eliminates the need to open the system chassis and clear the RTC data. Simply shut down and 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 a reboot the system, and the BIOS automatically restores the CPU parameters to their default settings. 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 8-channel audio output. EZ-Flash 2 ErP ready Simply update BIOS from a USB flash disk before entering the OS The motherboard is European Union´s Energy-related Products (ErP) ready, and ErP requires products to EZ Flash 2 is a user-friendly BIOS update utility. Simply launch this tool and update BIOS from a USB flash disk meet certain energy efficiency requirements in regards to energy consumptions. This is in line with ASUS vision before entering the OS. You can update your BIOS only in a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy diskette or of creating environment-friendly and energy-efficient products through product design and innovation to reduce carbon footprint of using an OS-based flash utility. the product and thus mitigate environmental impacts.
