ROG SupremeFX 2015

Jacked Up Audio, Inside and Out

This motherboard from the ASUS ROG line provides you with the very best gaming-audio inputs and outputs, with special shielded designs and a collection of carefully selected professional-grade audio components. These motherboard components consist of an ESS ES9023P digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with Hyperstream technology, ultra-low-jitter clock, Nichicon capacitors, 2Vrms headphone amp and Sonic SenseAmp that automatically detects and optimists any headset (32-600 ohms) for purest sound quality. SupremeFX 2015 also features intuitive Sonic Studio II for you to apply and enjoy different audio effects for perfect entertainment, plus Perfect Noise noise-cancellation technology for team conversations with total clarity.


Intuitive Audio-Tuning Suite

One-click virtual-surround function emulates 7.1 channels, even through a stereo (2.0-channel) headset. It offers five more superb audio controls, including Reverb, Bass Boost, Equalizer, Voice Clarity and Smart EQ — ensuring that everything you hear sounds just amazing. Casting Enhancer improves stream and recording audio quality, reduces noise artifacts, stabilises overall voice volume and improves rich details and boost-base. Perfect Voice reduces incoming and outgoing in-game communication noise to ensure everybody is heard.


Single Click Overclocking & Cooling

ASUS utilise a 5-way optimisation system that allows you to hit single buttons to tune complex settings - for example, highly-controllable performance boosts! You get superb CPU performance, everyday energy savings, ultra-stable digital power, cool and quiet fans, and even networking and audio settings that are tailored for the apps that you are using. This tech helps to ensure the perfect PC for gaming, entertainment, productivity or anything else.


*3 additional sensors provided via Fan EXT Card. **VRM sensor only available on certain models

Dedicated water-pump header for best water-cooling efficiency.

A fan-extension header for fan card upgrades *extension card sold separately.

Cooler Motherboard by Design

Advanced fan and water-pump controls for ultimate cooling and quietness with onboard thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin PWM/3-pin DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 3 makes sure every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise!


Precise Digital Power Control

Power control is one of the most essential designs that take place in a motherboard. Intelligent CPU-power-draw detection with ASUS DIGI+ Power Control is an innovative, industry-leading technology that fully complies with Intel IMVP8 specifications, increasing overclocking potential, enhancing system stability, and improving power efficiency with superior flexibility and accurate control.


Accelerate Favorite Apps and Games with Automated Ease

Whether you're a hardcore gamer or a business professional, you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo App every day. Its intuitive tuning panel boosts a range of hardware, CPU-overclocking, fan-tuning, network data prioritization and audio optimization settings — all with automated ease. And now Turbo App is even more powerful than before, giving you the ability to automatically apply profiles previously set in Sonic Studio II and KeyBot II, so setup couldn't be simpler!


CPU Performance Boost

Unleash your PC's full performance with the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility! The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) offers precise voltage control and advanced monitoring for the CPU and the graphics card. This gives you the freedom to adjust CPU frequencies and ratios for optimized performance and the ability to unlock the potential from your graphics card*.

*Please see the graphics card QVL


All-Round Energy Efficiency

With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy real-time, system-wide power savings. EPU detects and adjusts power consumption according to the PC's needs — automatically. It can also reduce CPU wattage to a set level and deliver even more savings with Away Mode. This creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused extra I/O controllers and reduces the graphics cards' power level while you're away, so the PC consumes only the energy it needs — and not a drop more!


Pushing Motherboard Overclocking Performance

A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel processors that allows overclocked base clock frequencies up to 400MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS Turbo Processor Unit (TPU), to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — granting an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights. The advantages of having PRO Clock embedded within your motherboard are a reduced boot up time, lower jitter under extreme conditions and enhanced stability under heavy overclocking.

*PRO Clock range up to 650 MHz is available, BCLK overclocking range may vary according to CPU capabilities


Overclocking - Strength in Numbers

ASUS 2nd generation T-Topology allows DDR4 memory overclocking to reach new heights: over DDR4-3733 MHz with all memory slots populated. Featuring a customised trace layout for reduced crosstalk and coupling noise, the ASUS 2nd generation T-Topology ensures time-aligned signal transfer for improved memory stability and compatibility.


EZ Flash 3

Flash the latest BIOS via the internet, and from within the BIOS.


Check up your storages devices' Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (SMART) logs to gauge reliability, and even determine if they're about to fail.

EZ Tuning Wizard– OC and RAID

Select your hardware and apply different scenarios to tune system performance, or streamline your RAID configuration for faster data retrieval and backups!

My Favorite

Quickly find tuning options and add preferred tools to the list.

Media-Acclaimed UEFI BIOS

The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily. Also featured on the motherboard is a 'Flashback' button, this allows you to refresh your BIOS in a flash, even when the system is off.


The Finest Power, Digitally Controlled

ROG's revered digital power controller now delivers even-finer power, with Texas Instruments NexFET MOSFETs, MicroFine alloy chokes, Digi+ PWM controller and 10K black metallic capacitors — ensuring Extreme Engine Digi+ always delivers the smoothest core voltages!


Enhance your Game Load Times

ROG's uniquely-intelligent technology efficiently caches the critical files on a particular storage device, so that your favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds—getting to work the moment it's activated. RAMCache turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times to stratospheric levels, and minimizes risk of data loss!


More Throughput, Less CPU Usage - Great Gaming!

ROG features the very latest Intel Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming — always. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay.


Pumped-Up Throughput, Top-Quality Surge Protection

Signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted components ensure a more reliable connection and better throughput. Additionally, electrostatically-guarded and surge-protected components (ESD Guards) allow for 1.9x-greater tolerance to static electricity and 2.5x-greater protection (up to 15kV) against surges!
