      DDR2 600 Native Support

      Although Intel's 925X, 915P and 915G chipsets claimed to only support DDR2 400/533, ASUS engineers successfully unleashed their true potential. This model offers native DDR2 600, eliminating the bottleneck when overclocking both the CPU and memory. With current processors supporting 800MHz FSB, ASUS motherboards, the only solutions with native DDR2 600, will provide superior performance for the most demanding applications.

      Hyper Path2 - Shorten Memory Latency
      The innovative ASUS Hyper Path2 significantly shortens the latency time between the CPU and memory and improves memory performance without sacrificing stability.


      Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU
      This motherboard supports the latest Pentium 4 CPU from Intel in LGA775 package. With 800MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 cache, Hyper-Threading Technology and core-speeds up to 3.6GHz and beyond, Intel's LGA775 Pentium 4 is one of the fastest desktop processors to date.
      "Attention!! CPU Installation"

      Intel 915P chipset
      The Intel 915P chipset supports the latest PC technologies such as LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU, dual-channel DDR2 memory architecture, and PCI Express x16 graphics card interface. The ICH6 Southbridge further provides integrated 4 x SATA port, PCI Express x1 interfaces and 8 high-speed USB 2.0 ports.


      Dual-Channel DDR2 533
      DDR2 is the next generation memory technology to replace the current DDR. With initial speeds from 400 and 533MHz, DDR2 memory provides bandwidth up to 4.3GB/s. Doubled by the dual-channel architecture, the widest memory bus bandwidth 8.6GB/s is achieved on this motherboard.


      PCI Express Architecture
      PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better than AGP 8X in applications such as 3D gaming. PCI Express x1 also outperforms PCI interface with its exceptional high bandwidth up to 500MB/s.



      AI Proactive

      AI NOS™
      Boost performance when you need it the most!
      Applications such as 3D games and video editing demand a huge chunk of system resource.
      Inject "nitrous oxide" into your CPU! The patented AI NOS™ (Non-delay Overclocking System) technology intelligently detects system load and automatically boosts performance for the most demanding tasks. Unlike other dynamic overclocking techniques, AI NOS™ reacts much faster to satisfy your unending need for speeds.

      AI NET2
      Diagnose LAN connection before entering OS!
      Network problems are often caused by bad cable connection.
      AI NET2 remotely detects cable connection the second you turn on the system, and any faulty connections are reported back up to 100 meters at 1 meter accuracy.

      High Definition Audio
      Enjoy high-end sound system on your PC! The onboard 8-channel HD audio (High Definition Audio, previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz/24-bit audio output, jack-sensing feature, retasking functions and multi-streaming technology that simultaneously sends different audio streams to different destinations. You can now talk to your partners on the headphone while playing a multi-channel network games. All of these are done on one computer.

      ASUS Q-Fan
      ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently and automatically adjusts CPU fan speeds according to system load and temperature, enabling users to work in a distraction-free environment with minimal noise.

      S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port
      This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via an coaxial S/PDIF-out (SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) jack. It allows to transfer digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the best signal quality.

      Max. 8 USB 2.0 ports supports
      USB 2.0 is the latest connectivity standard for next generation components and peripherals. Backwards compatible with current USB 1.1 peripherals, USB 2.0 delivers transfer speeds up to 40 times faster at 480Mb/s, for easy connectivity and ultra-fast data transfers.

      ASUS CrashFree BIOS2
      The CrashFree BIOS2 feature now includes the BIOS auto-recovery function in a support CD. Users can reboot their system through the support CD when a bootable disk is not available, and go through the simple BIOS auto-recovery process.
      ASUS motherboards now enable users to enjoy this protection feature without the need to pay for an optional ROM.

      C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)
      When the system hangs due to overclocking failure, there is no need to open the case to clear CMOS data. Just simply restart the system, the BIOS would show the previous setting and then users can amend the CPU setting again.
