Product Description

This motherboard is ready to support the advanced graphics standard, Quad CrossFireX, which provides higher frame rates for superb graphics performance. It also provides full x16 dual lanes or triple VGA support. This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth which enhances system performance. ASUS 8+2 Phase Power Design, with independent power to vital components, ultimately enhances memory performance and ensures quick response and stability of CPU under heavy loading or overclocking modes. 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. This motherboard uses all high-quality conductive polymer capacitors onboard for durability, improved lifespan, and enhanced thermal capacity.
