This motherboard supports Intel LGA775 Core 2 Extreme / Core2 Quad/ Core2 Duo processors, which are excellent for multitasking, multimedia, and enthusiastic gamers with 1333/ 1066/ 800 MHz FSB. This motherboard also supports Intel CPUs in the 45nm manufacturing process.
This motherboard supports the latest Intel 45nm CPU which introduces micro-architecture features for greater performance at a given frequency, up to 50% larger L2 caches, and expanded power management capabilities for new levels of energy efficiency.
The Intel G41 Express chipset is designed to support dual-channel DDR3 1333 (overclocking)/1066/800 architecture, 1333/1066/800 Front Side Bus (FSB), PCIe 1.1, and mutli-core CPUs. It especially includes Intel Fast memory bandwidth and reduces the latency of the memory accesses.
This motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1333 (O.C.)/1066/800 MHz providing great performance for 3D graphics and other memory-demanding applications.
Enjoy high-end sound system on your PC! The onboard 8-channel HD audio (High Definition Audio, previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC enables high-quality 192KHz/24-bit audio output, jack-sensing feature, retasking functions and multi-streaming technology that simultaneously sends different audio streams to different destinations. You can now talk to your partners on the headphone while playing a multi-channel network games. All of these are done on one computer.
The onboard 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.
Express Gate is an ASUS exclusive OS, which lets you instantly access the Internet and key applications before entering the Windows OS.
This special design prevents expensive devices and the motherboard from damage caused by power surges from switching power supply (PSU).
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.
ASUS Turbo Key allows you to turn the PC power button into an overclocking button. After you easy setup, Turbo Key boosts performances without interrupting ongoing work or games, simply through pressing the button.
This motherboard supports hard drives based on the Serial ATA (SATA) 3Gb/s storage specifications, delivering enhanced scalability and doubling the bus bandwidth for high-speed data saving and retrieval.
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.
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 BIOS 3 is an auto-recovery tool that allows you to restore a corrupted BIOS file using the bundled support DVD or USB flash disk that contains the latest BIOS file.
