5X Protection III

Prime 200 motherboards are engineered with industry-leading 5X Protection III, employing the finest components, excellent circuit design, and exacting standards to guarantee the quality and long-term durability of your motherboard. That means exceptional protection and stability for your build — thanks to decades of engineering experience from the world's leading motherboard brand.

Fortified PCIe slot prevents damage

SafeSlot Core is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot. Featuring a fortified design that's anchored to the motherboard by a special hook, Safeslot Core provides 1.6x stronger retention and 1.3x greater shearing resistance than standard expansion slots. The ASUS Prime motherboards also features strengthened solder points around both the PCIe and DIMM pins.

LANGuard - Pumped-up throughput. 2.5x higher surge tolerance.

ASUS LANGuard is hardware-level networking protection that employs signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors to ensure a more reliable connection and better throughput, plus electrostatically guarded and surge-protected components for greater tolerance to static electricity and improved protection against surges.

Overvoltage Protection

An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your chipset, connectivity ports, and audio codecs from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies.

Top-to-bottom Reliability

ASUS motherboards have superb endurance. We verify this by subjecting every board to more than 8,000 hours of stringent tests. A barrage of burn-in, environmental, compatibility, software and safety tests confirm that our motherboards are exceptionally robust. It also shows that ASUS reliability surpasses industry standards, ensuring that every component is designed to function flawlessly in any environment.

Advanced fan controls

With onboard thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 2 makes sure every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise! Two modes are available firstly, Auto-Tuning Mode which scans fan parameters and all fans with a single click, and Extreme Quite Mode that reduces the CPU fan speed to below the default minimum, for extra-quiet operation and power savings during light loads.
