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.
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.
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
