"Ultimate COOL!" Thermal Solution
CeraM!X - Heatsink Coating Tech.
Larger area for heat dissipation with the revolutionary ceramics-coating technology
Innovative ceramics effectively conducts heat away from the system. It replaces traditional anti-oxidant to dissipate heat better with its microscopic irregular surface and enlarged area. Better cooling leads to overall improvement in system stability.
Active Quiet & Cool
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 profiles offer flexible controls of fan speed to achieve a quiet and cool environment.
"TUF ENGINE!" Power Design
E.S.P. - Efficient Switching Power Design
Optimal power efficiency for key components
Exclusively for this motherboard, the switching power design is provided not only for the CPU, but also for other key components such as graphics card, PCI slots, and chipsets. E.S.P. dramatically improves system efficiency and reduces heat generation.
(Alloy Choke, Cap. & MOSFET; certified by military-standard)
Certified for Tough Duty
