    A Brand New AMD Platform-Speed Your PC!

    AMD® AM2+ Quad-Core CPU/AM2 CPU Support
    The First Full Speed AMD Phenom™ Quad-Core Ready Motherboard
    This motherboard supports AMD® Socket AM2+ multi-core processors with unique L3 cache and delivers better overclocking capabilities with less power consumption. It features dual-channel DDR2 1066 memory support and accelerates data transfer rate up to 5200MT/s via HyperTransport™ 3.0 based system bus.

    AMD 770 chipset
    AMD 770 Chipset is designed to support up to 5200MT/s HyperTransport™ 3.0 (HT 3.0) interface speed and PCI Express™ 2.0 x16 graphics. It is optimized with AMD®’s latest AM2+ and multi-core CPUs to provide excellent system performance and overclocking capabilities.


    HyperTransport 3.0 Suport
    Latest System Bus Technology
    Provides 2.6 times more bandwidth than HT1.0 that radically improves system efficiency for a smoother, faster computing environment.


    Native DDR2 1066 Support
    The First Native DDR2-1066 AMD Platform
    This motherboard is the 1st AMD platform with native DDR2 1066 support. It provides faster data access and more bandwidth for increased memory computing efficiency. - enhancing performance for 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications.

    4+1 Phase Power Design
    Longer Life, & Higher Efficiency!
    Unleashes ultimate memory performances with independent power to core components, while providing fast transient response and stability for the CPU under heavy loading or overclocking modes.


    PCIe 2.0 support
    Double Speed; Double Bandwidth
    This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth which enhances system performance.


    ASUS Q-Shield
    Easy and Comfortable Installations
    The specially designed ASUS Q-Shield does without the usual "fingers" - making it convenient and easy to install. With better electric conductivity, it ideally protects your motherboard against static electricity and shields it against Electronic Magnetic Interference (EMI).



    AMD Cool ´n´ Quiet! Technology
    Supports AMD Cool ´n´ Quiet! Technology, which monitors system operation and automatically adjusts CPU voltage and frequency for a cool and quiet environment.
    AI Gear 2
    Power Savings for Environment-Friendly Computing
    Users can choose profiles to adjust CPU frequency and vCore voltage to minimize system noise and power consumption - allowing them to save CPU power for environment-friendly computing.

    AI Nap
    Minimize noise and power consumption when temporarily away
    With AI Nap, the system can continue running at minimum power and noise when you are temporarily away. To wake the system and return to the OS environment, simply click the mouse or press a key.

    Noise Filter
    Eliminate background noise while recording
    This feature detects repetitive and stationary noises (non-voice signals) like computer fans, air conditioners, and other background noises then eliminates it in the incoming audio stream while recording.

    Precision Tweaker
    Achieve system maximum performance!
    It offers ways to raise system performance inch-by-inch and step-by-step to achieve maximum performance! This is about getting the most out of your machine and taking pride in your customized computer.

    C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall)
    Protect your BIOS data when overclocking.
    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.

    MyLogo2
    Personalize your system with customizable boot logo
    You can convert your favorite photo into a 256-color boot logo for a more colorful and vivid image on your screen.

    ASUS Q-Fan 2
    ASUS Q-Fan 2 technology intelligently adjusts both CPU fan and chassis fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.
    Serial ATA 3Gb/s RAID
    This motherboard supports next-generation SATA hard drives based on the new SATA 3Gb/s storage specification. The onboard NVIDIA nForce® 560 SLI™ MCP allows RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1 configurations for four SATA connectors.

    ASUS Q-Connector
    The ASUS Q-Connector allows you to connect or disconnect chassis front panel cables in one easy step with one complete module. This unique adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time, making connection quick and accurate.

    ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3
    The ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 allows users to restore corrupted BIOS data from a USB flash disk containing the BIOS file. This utility saves users the cost and hassle of buying a replacement BIOS chip.

    ASUS EZ Flash 2
    EZ Flash 2 is a user-friendly BIOS update utility. Simply press the pre-defined hotkey to 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.
