ASUS 5X Protection

ASUS motherboards guard your PC with 5X Protection. We use quality components like DIGI+ VRM digital power design for precise CPU power on demand, ESD units tested to strict standards that eliminate electrostatic interference, and resettable fuses around DRAM slots to prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. We also use corrosion-resistant back I/O shields, all examples of ASUS providing the best possible reliability and durability.

USB 3.0 Boost (UASP Support)

ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) in Windows 8. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to already fast USB 3.0 performance. ASUS software automatically accelerates data rates for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without any user interaction.

5* Good upgrade
Reviewed by Anonymous on 31/12/2014
All worked brilliantly. Overclocked to 4.2, 4.1, 4.0 and seems to be settled at 3.9, though it may have gone higher with some volt changes. Added a locally sourced Antec PSU as my existing PSU was due to be replaced anyway. Used my old Ice 7 Cooler for now (25-29C at idle and maybe 40 under load) but will fit a 212 EVO in soon.

I thought I'd post this just to let folk know it does still overclock and with this board. I'd already fitted a new Kingston SSD Drive, 2TB Seagate HDD, new monitor, new DVD Drive, OS Win 7 Pro 64 bit, Zalman Z3 case (love this case) and my existing GSX 550Ti Video Card for now. Going for a GSX 760 or 770 later.

The computer is soooo quiet I wondered if I'd wired it wrong or not switched on. Boots in 15-30 secs, shuts down before I can stand, installs Win 7 Pro in 12 minutes from an empty drive. Not bad for a low cost CPU, budget board and my Kingston SSD that speeds it all up. 8 gig of memory makes a big difference too.
