The new ASUS EPU - the world´s first power saving engine, has been upgraded to a new six 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, drives and system fan), the EPU automatically
provides the most appropriate power usage via intelligent acceleration and overclocking - helping
save power and money.
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
ASUS Fanless Design - Heat-pipe solution
The Heat Pipe design effectively directs the heat generated by the chipsets to the heatsink near the
back IO ports, where it can be carried away by existing airflow from CPU fan or bundled optional
fan. The purpose of the innovative heat pipe design on this motherboard is that the groundbreaking
fanless design does not have lifetime problems as a chipset fan does. Furthermore, it provides
options for users to install side-flow fan or passive cooler. The 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.
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.
