Great on air. 23°C Cooler with water
Choose between air or water cooling: it works with both! Unlike competing hybrid thermal solution, CrossChill requires no fan, so there's no noise or dust build-up. For those who do venture into water cooling, you can achieve up to 23?C lower MOSFET temperatures for more stable overclocking! Internally the water channel fins help to maximize the surface area for heat transfer, and thanks to its G1/4 threaded fittings, CrossChill even fits into any existing setup! Don't settle for a second-best solution.
Amazing 120dB signal-to-noise ratio, 600ohm audio
SupremeFX Formula delivers premium sound card quality. Combining SupremeFX Shielding technology through physical PCB isolation, grounding separation and EMI cover shielding, while premium components such as ELNA audio capacitors and German-made WIMA film capacitors deliver audiophile grade performance. Lossless audio quality is ensured thanks to differential circuit design with high-fidelity operational amplifiers (op-amps) and Cirrus Logic CS4398 headphone digital/analog converter (DAC) delivering a brilliant 120dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Finally the Texas Instruments TPA6120A2 600ohm headphone amplifier is able to boost every sound detail.
Upgraded noise cancellation
Simple and effective technology greatly improves internet calls (VoIP) with crystal-clear communications and no additional array microphones needed.
Exclusive digital signal processing removes noise during pauses in speech and other periods of silence.
Spectral-subtraction algorithm analyzes and determines the amount of ambient noise to be countered.
In-game sound visualization overlay
Dedicated to FPS gamers, Sonic Radar is a stealthy overlay that shows you what opponents and teammates are up to. Gunshots, footsteps, and call-outs appear with precise directioning via the on-screen radar. Includes a hotkey that allows you to switch sound detection focus for specific effects within games, and intuitive settings that provide greater gaming experiences:
Four optimized game presets: three fine-tuned presets based on major FPS games, plus one general preset, all ready for your arena of engagement.
Six key sound effects detected: visualize major game sound effects to help you complete your mission every time.
Style, strength, and cooling in one
100% exclusive to ASUS, the ROG Armor is more than just a stylish addition to the ultimate gaming motherboard, it contains two parts; a strong ABS top cover that blocks the heat from graphics cards directly to achieve lower system temperature as well as DIYers can apply their own personal style to, and a fortifying SECC steel support behind the PCB to prevent bending. It also ducts heat away from crucial components via thermal pads.
Hardcore power delivery with premium components
Completely digital architecture attains total control over the Fully Integrated Voltage Regulators (FIVR) of Intel processors to supply the highest stability and precision for the CPU and memory. The design features dynamic speed adjustments alongside intricate manual controls that allow you to push processors and RAM beyond their limits.
Power components are also upgraded. NexFET MOSFETs handle up to 90% efficiency in high current delivery under normal operation and better durability in half the size of standard MOSFETs. Exclusive BlackWing chokes remain cool even when sizzling with as much as 60 amps of power with 3-5°C lower temps and minimal-loss power delivery. Japan-made 10K Black Metallic capacitors last five times longer and deliver 20% greater extreme temperature endurance than generic solid state capacitors, easily standing up to hardcore demands.
Extra connections with M.2 (NGFF) support
The next evolution of the mPCIe Combo card gives you even better expandability with the latest standards in connectivity and easy install. You get mini PCI Express 2.0 plus USB 2.0 with an included dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 module, powered by ASUS-exclusive Wi-Fi GO! Remote and Wi-Fi Engine, which maximize performance for better experiences. Its an instant upgrade to the fastest wireless right on your desktop. All without having to sacrifice a PCI Express slot!
The compact but versatile mPCIe Combo II further future-proofs your build with M.2 (NGFF, Next Generation Form Factor) connectivity for SSDs. M.2 is a fast and power-efficient standard that aims to replace mPCIe and mSATA, designed to optimize SSD performance. mPCIe Combo II works with your high speed M.2 SSDs and makes the most of their potential, helping you reduce load times to run your OS and games even faster.
One click for better performance, efficiency, digital power control, reduced noise, and improved cooling.
Starting with the Turbo Processing Unit (TPU), 4-Way Optimization performs Auto Tuning, which automatically overclocks the CPU to within ~95% of its potential, a process that typically could take up to 2 days to manually overclock. Auto Tuning is even able to overclock 2 cores at a time, and can configured to prioritize either multiplier (default) or BLCK if desired.
The process then moves to the Energy Processing Unit (EPU), which customizes power saving profiles for periods of light use or idle states. Within this module are options to set a TDP cap for low power scenarios, as well as selectively shut off SATA and USB ports when idling.
Next, DIGI+ VRM optimizes digital power settings to take full advantage of the CPU's built-in digital power delivery, creating a more precise and stable overclocking experience through OCP and LLC presets.
Finally, Fan Xpert 2 tests and calibrates each individual case fan connected to your motherboard to create selectable cooling profiles that can be further customized upon completion. The ability to assign customized fan curves and/or all-or-nothing temperature thresholds to profiles is also included.
Most award-winning in segment
The new ROG UEFI BIOS includes a Last Modified feature that records recent changes. And to make sure you never forget a tuning idea, the in-BIOS Quick Note is perfect for jotting down memos and system details. It sure beats easily-misplaced paper notes! Theres also F4 My Favorites and Shortcuts for easy access to the BIOS features you need most, and you can even adjust boot logo size. The new BIOS also lets you name individual SATA ports so you can easily identify them to save time when defining boot sequences and other drive-related settings.
With ROG Pulse, a cool flashing ROG logo indicates system activity, and very importantly, the helpful SSD Secure Erase has been added, restoring SSD speed from inside the BIOS and with no need for less compatible third party utilities. Click the upper right tab to learn more.
Recover lost performance. Back to high speed
SSD performance degrades with time due to overwrite action. ROG is the worlds first motherboard brand to integrate SSD Secure Erase into UEFI BIOS for better compatibility and easier use, offering the best removal method to completely delete all data on an SSD to recover lost performance and restore factory speeds.
Dont waste your RAM: 20X faster storage than SSD!
ROG RAMDisk easily turns RAM into superfast temporary storage to accelerate operating system performance and reduce load times. It can use up to 80% of available system memory, and accesses files without relocating them to protect data integrity and minimize accidental corruption. To do this, the utility creates junction points which serve as quick links between files and RAM storage. All files are automatically saved and restored to their specific locations on hard drives when you turn your PC off, then go back to RAM when you power on again.
