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 ensuring 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 - World-class circuit-protecting power design

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

Gaming Audio

Beautiful LED-illuminated trace paths brighten the build and highlight noise-isolated, precision-shielded, interference-eliminated onboard audio like never before! Audio shielding ensures precision analog/digital separation and greatly reduced multi-lateral interference. Separate layers for left and right tracks ensures both channels deliver consistent, equal quality. Premium Japanese audio capacitors provide warm, natural and immersive sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.

SATA Express

Current SSDs devour up to 550MB/s bandwidth, which is close to saturation point for SATA 6Gbit/s connections. Backwardly compatible with up to two SATA drives, SATA Express is the next-generation connectivity standard and ensures that the system won't get left behind.


With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbit/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible.

DDR4 Support - Make your memory go faster

With DDR4, you'll accelerate memory frequencies up to an incredible to 2133MHz! And ASUS works with almost every DDR4 memory vendor, so you're assured the best compatibility.

USB Type-C for convenient connectivity

USB Type-C (USB-C) delivers future device compatibility and high-speed USB connectivity of 5Gbit/s from a slim, reversible port. The port is one third smaller than traditional USB Type-A. Reversible ease — any-way-up design means USB connections are made first time, every time. Future-proof compatibility — compatible with the latest devices today and the exciting new trends of tomorrow.

10Gbit/s USB 3.1 onboard

With USB 3.1 Type-A port, you'll experience data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s — or twice as fast USB 3.0. USB 3.1 is completely backward-compatible with your existing USB devices, and you'll be all set for USB 3.1's breakneck speeds. And ASUS-exclusive USB 3.1 Boost technology automatically accelerates USB 3.1 performance even further!

Fan Xpert 3 - Advanced fan controls

With onboard thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 3 makes sure every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise! Auto-Tuning Mode: Scans and detects all fan characteristics for single-click customisation. Extreme Quiet Mode: Reduces CPU fan speed to below the default minimum, for extra-quiet operation and power savings during light loads. RPM Fixed Mode: Lowers noise levels to near-0dB silence, allowing to you fix the fan speed.
