Enjoy the extraordinary CPU power from the latest dual-core CPU. The advanced processing technology contains two physical CPU cores with individually dedicated L2 cache to satisfy the rising demand for more powerful processing capability.
| 64-bit CPU support|
64-bit computing, the technology to replace the 32-bit architecture, delivers advanced system performance, faster memory access and increased productivity. This motherboard provides excellent compatibility and flexibility by supporting either 64-bit or 32-bit architecture.
| NVIDIA® nForce™ 630a|
The NVIDIA® nForce™ 630a MCP delivers Gigabit LAN, and NVIDIA® MediaShield storage management technology allowing easy RAID configuration (RAID 0, RAID 1) for Serial ATA 3Gb/s.
| Dual channel DDR2 800|
DDR2 800 memory provides great performance for 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications on next generation memory technology.
| PCI Express Architecture |
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus performs much better in applications such as 3D gaming.
| Serial ATA 3Gb/s |
This motherboard supports SATA hard drives based on the new SATA 3Gb/s storage specification.Allows RAID 0, RAID 1,RAID 10 and JBOD configurations for two SATA connectors.
| Gigbit LAN |
The on-board LAN controller is a highly integrated Gb LAN controller. It is enhanced with an ACPI management function to provide efficient power management for advanced operating systems.
High Definition Audio
Enjoy high-quality sound system on your PC! The onboard 6-channel HD audio (High Definition Audio, previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz/24-bit audio output, jack-sensing feature, retasking functions technology that automatically detects and identifies what types of peripherals are plugged into the audio I/O jacks and notifies users of inappropriate connection, meaning there will be no more confusion of Line-in, Line-out and Mic jacks.

Pin-Fin Thermal Module
New Generation Heat-disspating Design: Time to Cool Down
Compare with traditional stacked-fin heatpipe solution, the new generation pin-fin thermal design result in better thermal performance, which enlarges the “heat-exchange” surface area surface and breaks the "Boundary-layer" phenomenon for effective airflow. The Pin-Fin Thermal Module is the most efficient thermal system there is on the motherboard.
| Q-Fan |
ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts CPU fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.
| CrashFree BIOS 2 |
The ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2 allows users to restore corrupted BIOS data from a disk containing the BIOS file. This utility saves users the cost and hassle of buying a replacement BIOS chip
| EZ Flash 2|
Simply update BIOS from a USB flash disk before entering the OS
EZ Flash 2 is a user-friendly BIOS update utility. Simply launch this tool and update BIOS from a USB flash disk before entering the OS. You can update your BIOS only in a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy diskette or using an OS-based flash utility.
| 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.
| Uses 100% All High-quality Conductive Polymer Capacitors|
This motherboard uses all high-quality conductive polymer capacitors onboard for durability, improved lifespan, and enhanced thermal capacity.
The motherboard and its packaging comply with the European Union´s Restriction on the use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS).
