It especially includes Intel® Fast memory bandwidth and reduces the latency of the memory accesses. Low EMI A special low-radiation design shields you from harmful electromagnetic exposure by eliminating 50% of radiation.1. Radiation Deduction Design minimizes harmful electrostatic radiation output with exclusive circuit design to cancel electrical charge.2. The Radiation Moat Design effectively blocks radiation to prevent discharge spread Dual channel DDR3 1333 (O.C.)/1066 support This motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1333 (O.C.)/1066 MHz providing great performance for 3D graphics and other memory-demanding applications. ASUS EPU The ASUS EPU (Energy Processing Unit) provides total system power management by detecting current PC loadings and intelligently moderating power in real-time. It automatically provides the most appropriate power usage to save power and money! Turbo Key ASUS Turbo Key allows you to turn the PC power button into a physical overclocking button. After the easy setup, Turbo Key can boost performances without interrupting ongoing work or games, simply through pressing the button. ESD Protect Your Computer with ESD Guards. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) conditions can happen while plugging or unplugging any USB peripherals-causing damage to the computer. ASUS' ESD Guards clamp the ESD voltage and shunt the majority of the ESD current away for a more reliable computing environment. 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. ASUS CrashFree BIOS3 ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3 is an auto-recovery tool that allows you to restore a corrupted BIOS file using the bundled support DVD or USB disk that contains the latest BIOS file. EZ Flash2 ASUS EZ Flash 2 is a utility that allows you to update the BIOS without using an OS-based utility. C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall) The BIOS C.P.R. feature automatically restores the CPU default settings when the system hangs due to overclocking failure. C.P.R. eliminates the need to open the system chassis and clear the RTC data. Simply shut down and reboot the system, and the BIOS automatically restores the CPU parameters to their default settings.* If overclocking failed, press the power button to turn off the system, then reboot the system. ErP ready The motherboard is European Union´s Energy-related Products (ErP) ready, and ErP requires products to meet certain energy efficiency requirements in regards to energy consumptions. This is in line with ASUS vision of creating environment-friendly and energy-efficient products through product design and innovation to reduce carbon footprint of the product and thus mitigate environmental impacts.
