CPU, Chipset and Graphics features
LGA775 Intel® Core™2 Processor Ready
This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Core™2 processors in LGA775
package. It also can support Intel® 45nm Multi-Core CPU. With new Intel®
Core™ microarchitecture technology and 1600/1333/1066/800MHz FSB, Intel®
Core™2 processor is one of the most powerful and energy efficient CPU in the
PCIe 2.0
Double Speed; Double Bandwidth
This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth
which enhances system performance.
ATI CrossFireX Technology
ATI´s CrossFireX boosts image quality along with rendering speed, eliminating the need
to scale down screen resolutions to get the high image quality you want. CrossFire
ignites with the higher antialiasing, anisotropic filtering, shading, and texture settings you
desire. Adjust your display configurations, experiment with your advanced 3D settings,
and check the effect with a real-time 3D-rendered preview within ATI´s Catalyst™ Control Center to
rule your CrossFireX system.
Memory Features
Dual-Channel DDR2 1200
The motherboard supports DDR2 memory that features data transfer rates of
1200/1066/800/667 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest
operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel
DDR2 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system
performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 19.2GB/s.
ASUS Exclusive Features
ASUS True 16-Phase Power Design
Unprecedented Innovation with the best quality component for best
The breakthrough technology of 16-phase VRM design is bringing to the
ASUS motherboards. 16-phase power design can reach the power
efficiency up to 96%+, and dispel heat generated by VRM module
effectively, and lower more temperature compared to other VRM solution. With the
high quality power components such as low RDS (on) MOSFETs, Ferrite core chokes with lower
hysteresis loss and 100% Japan-made high quality conductive polymer capacitors, ASUS 16-phase
VRM design also ensure longer component life, minimum power loss, and help to reach the superior
overclocking score ever than before.
Best Quality Power Components
100% High-quality Japan-made Conductive Polymer Capacitors!(5000 hrs VRM)
Low RDS (on) MOSFETs with min. switching loss & lower temperature, Ferrite Core chokes with lower
hysteresis loss, and 100% Japan-made high quality, long life conductive polymer capacitors.
ASUS EPU-6 Engine
System Level Energy Saving
The new ASUS EPU - the world´s first power saving engine, has been upgraded to a new
6 engine version, which provides total system power savings by detecting current PC
loadings and intelligently moderating power in real-time. With auto phase switching for
components (which includes the CPU, VGA card, memory, chipset, hard drives and CPU
cooler/system fans), the EPU automatically provides the most appropriate power usage
via intelligent acceleration and overclocking - helping save power and money

ASUS Express Gate SSD
5 Secs Bootup to online
Taking only 5 seconds to go online from bootup, Express Gate is the one-stop gateway to instant fun!
It´s a unique motherboard built-in OS. You can utilize the most popular Instant Messengers (IM) like
MSN, Skype, Google talk, QQ, and Yahoo! Messenger to keep in touch with friends, or quickly check
on the weather and e-mails just before leaving your house. What´s more, the user-friendly picture
manager lets you view your pictures without entering Windows at anytime!

ASUS Drive Xpert
Plug & Safe!
Without drivers or BIOS setups, the ASUS exclusive Drive Xpert is ideal for anyone who
needs to secure data on their hard drives or enhance hard drive performances without
the hassles of complicated configurations. With Drive Xpert´s user-friendly graphical user
interface, users can easily arrange hard drive backups or enhance their hard drive
transfer rates - making sure that data is looked after every moment, every day.
ASUS Power Saving Solution
AI Nap
Minimize noise and power consumption when temporarily away!
With AI Nap, users can instantly snooze your PC without terminating the tasks. System
will continue operating at minimum power and noise when user is temporarily away. It
keeps downloading files or running applications in quietest state while you´re sleeping.
Simply click keyboard or mouse, you can swiftly wake up the system in few seconds.
ASUS Quiet Thermal Solution
Up to 20°C(36°F) Cooler - Stack Cool 2
Effective Fanless Heat Dissipation at 0dB
Stack Cool 2 is a fanless cooling solution offered exclusively by ASUS. It effectively and
noiselessly transfers heat generated by the critical components to the other side of the
specially designed PCB (printed circuit board) for effective heat dissipation - making
temperatures cooler by up to 20°C.
Aesthetic Heat-pipe
Lowers Temperatures by up to 10°C
The aesthetic heat-pipe design effectively directs the heat generated by the chipsets to
the heatsink near the back I/O ports - where it can be carried away by existing airflows
from the CPU or a bundled optional fan. This innovative and groundbreaking fanless heat
pipe design effectively lowers temperatures by up to 10°C without having lifetime
problems that a normal chipset fan has. Furthermore, it provides options for users to install side-flow
fans or a passive cooler. This Heat Pipe design is the most reliable fanless thermal solution to date.
Fan Xpert
Active Quiet & Cool
ASUS Fan Xpert intelligently allows users to adjust both the CPU and chassis fan speed
according to different ambient temperature , which is caused by different climate
conditions in different geographic regions and system loading.Built-in variety of useful
profiles offer flexible controls of fan speed to achieve a quiet and cool environment.
DieHard BIOS
BIOS Never Die
The ASUS Diehard BIOS consists of two BIOS chips, a main BIOS and a backup BIOS.
The ASUS Diehard BIOS can restore corrupted main BIOS data from the backup BIOS
automatically. The technology saves users the hassle of recovering the BIOS file or
buying a replacement BIOS chip.
Easy and Comfortable Installations
The specially designed ASUS Q-Shield does without the usual "fingers" - making it
convenient and easy to install. With better electric conductivity, it ideally protects your
motherboard against static electricity and shields it against Electronic Magnetic
Interference (EMI).
