It expedites heat dissipation and achieves better electric conduction keeping critical components reliable. Now you'll be able to push your spanking new Intel CPU to the limit, hitting benchmark scores that others only dream of. Extreme Engine Digi+ balances the need for voltage and the desire for rock solid performance to bring the ultimate user experience.
USB BIOS Flashback - USB BIOS Flashback is the most convenient way to flash BIOS. It allows overclockers to try their BIOS in the simplest way possible. No need to enter the BIOS or the operating system, just plug the thumb drive into the ROG Connect port & push the ROG Connect button for 2 seconds, BIOS would be automatically flashed under standby power.

ROG Connect
Users can monitor the status of their desktop PC and tweak its parameters in real-time via a notebook with ROG Connect. ROG Connect links the main system to a notebook through a USB cable, allowing real-time POST code and hardware status readouts on the notebook, as well as make on-the-fly parameter adjustments at a purely hardware level.
RC Bluetooth - RC Bluetooth brings users a whole new idea of how to OC. Just simply push the button from the Back I/O on the RC Bluetooth card and overclockers can real-time monitor the desktop PC system status & tweak its parameters - such as voltages and frequency on the fly. When users want to use ordinary Bluetooth functions, just simply push the button once again & enjoy all the wireless convenience brought from RC Bluetooth.

iROG - The iROG is a special IC which enables several ROG highlighted functions that gives users full disposal of the motherboard at any stage! This design allows for advanced user control and management to be processed purely at a hardware level. iROG greatly increases users enjoyment during overclocking for PC enthusiasts and it offers system maintenance and management with more control and efficiency.

MemOK! - Memory compatibility is amongst the top concerns when it comes to computer upgrades. Users will no longer have to be concerned though as MemOK! is the fastest memory booting solution available. This remarkable memory rescue tool requires nothing but a push of a button to patch memory issues and get the system up and running in no time. The technology is able to determine failsafe settings that can dramatically improve system booting success.

Voltiminder LED - In the pursuit of extreme performance, overvoltage adjustment is critical but risky. Acting as the "red zone" of a tachometer, the Voltiminder LED displays the voltage status for CPU, NB, SB, and Memory in an intuitive color-coded fashion. The voltiminder LED allows quick voltage monitoring for overclockers.
COP EX - The COP EX allows overclockers to increase chipset voltages without overheating. It can also be used to monitor and save an overheating GPU. The COP EX allows more freedom and less constraint for maximum performance achievement.

On-board Switch - With an easy press during overclock, this exclusive on-board switch allows gamer to effortlessly fine-tune the performance without having to short the pins or move jumpers!

GameFirst - Low Internet latency allows users to frag more, and get fragged less. That's why ROG has introduced GameFirst, a feature that manages the flow of traffic according to user needs so that they can still listen to online music, download and upload files, and engage in Internet chats without sacrificing the low ping times you need to pwn your opponents.
ProbeIt - ProbeIt takes the guesswork out of locating the motherboard’s measurement points, identifying them clearly in the form of 7 sets of detection points so you’ll know exactly where to get quick yet accurate readings using a multi-tester.

CPU Level Up - Ever wish that you could have a more expansive CPU? Upgrade your CPU at no additional cost with ROG's CPU Level Up! Simply pick the processor you wanted to OC to and the motherboard will do the rest!
See the new CPU speed and enjoy that performance instantly. Overclocking is never as easy as this.

Extreme Tweaker - the one stop shop to fine-tune systems to optimal performance. No matter if you're looking for frequency adjustment, over-voltage options, or memory timing settings, they're all here!
Loadline Calibration - Maintaining ample voltage support for the CPU is critical during overclocking. The Loadline Calibration ensures stable and optimal CPU voltage under heavy loading. It helps overclockers enjoy the motherboard's ultimate OC capabilities and benchmark scores.

Sound with Clarity
8-channel Audio - 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.

Noise Filter - This feature detects repetitive and stationary noises like computer fans, air conditioners, and other background noises then eliminates it in the incoming audio stream while recording.

ROG EZ DIY Features

Q-Fan Plus - The Q-Fan function automatically detects temperature and adjusts fan speed accordingly to achieve quiet and efficient cooling. With Q-Fan Plus, special temperature sensor cable is provided to detect temperature on any device. When used with a optional fans, users can activate Q-Fan function on up to 3 additional devices of their choice.

ASUS Q-Connector - The Q-Connector allows users to connect or disconnect chassis front panel cables in one easy step with one complete module. This unique adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time, making connection quick and accurate.

Onboard Switch - With an easy press during overclock, this exclusive onboard switch allows gamer to effortlessly fine-tune the performance without having to short the pins or moving jumpers!
