Our engineers employ exacting standards to guarantee quality throughout the product's life, choosing the finest components for real-world protection. Our motherboards are proven to be compatible with more than 1,000 components and devices, and undergo a minimum of 7,000 hours of strict validation. That gives you the peace of mind of knowing that ASUS motherboards are fit for all environments and applications. To build your PC with the best foundations, build it with an ASUS motherboard.

    ASUS 5X Protection
    Hardware safeguards to ensure long-term durability

    Our be-the-best ethos underscores the choice of every single component that goes into your ASUS motherboard. We focus relentlessly on quality to ensure long-term system reliability and performance.

    • LANGuard for advanced LAN protection

      ASUS LANGuard socket has advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, while surge-protected and electrostatically-guarded components (ESD Guards) protect your motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.

    • Enhanced DRAM overcurrent protection

      Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of both your system and connected device.

    • 5K-hr solid-state capacitors that last 2.5X longer

      Solid-state capacitors are able to withstand extreme temperatures of up to 105°C for as long as 5,000 hours — that's two-and-a-half (2.5X) times longer than traditional capacitors. This exceptional durability means superb real-world endurance to more typical PC operating temperatures, ensuring that ASUS motherboards continue working longer.

    • Stainless-steel back I/O that lasts 3X longer

      ASUS motherboard back I/O panels are made from strong and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which is bonded with a thin layer of chromium oxide to enhance anti-corrosive properties. Passing 72-hour spray salt endurance tests, ASUS stainless steel back I/O panels have a lifespan that's three times (3X) longer compared to ordinary panels.

    • ESD Guards for protection from electrostatic discharge

      Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. ASUS ESD Guards are tested to very high standards, capable of up to +/- 10kV for air discharge and +/-6kV for contact discharge. We employ an active protective circuit design to guard your system against electrostatic interference and damage, providing greater component longevity.

    Keyboard and mouse connectors: Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes.
    D-Sub connectors: Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect
    D-Sub functionality.
    USB 3.0 connectors: On-circuit TVS diodes for surface-mount and dual-inline packages.
    LAN port: LANGuard protection on the LAN circuit.
    USB 2.0 connectors: Varistor protection on back audio-output circuits.
