Audio

SupremeFX: Shielded Audio, Superior Sound
ROG Strix's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for best-ever ROG recording quality – and 120dB on line-out for crystal-clear sound! We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220A codec, plus Texas Instruments® RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps for high gain with low distortion. It all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before!

Performance

All-Round Energy Efficiency
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy real-time, system-wide power savings — for gaming kicks that won't cost the earth! EPU automatically detects and adjusts power consumption according to your rig's needs, so you save money without compromising on thrills. EPU will also reduce CPU wattage to a set level and deliver even more savings with Away mode, creating an extreme energy-saving scenario that shuts down unused extra I/O controllers and reduces the power level of the graphics card. That means full power for your gameplay — and then total energy efficiency when you step away!

Advanced Fan Controls: Cooler by Design
Play quieter and cooler with advanced fan controls for the ultimate undisturbed gaming. With on-board 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 high cooling performance and low noise - so you enjoy all the performance you demand with none of the racket!

• 5x 4-Pin PWM Fans: 4 Independent Controls; Auto*, DC Mode, PWM Mode, & Disabled.
• 2x Fan Control Sources: CPU, Motherboard.
• AIO Pump Fan.
*Only supports CPU_FAN, CPU_OPT.

Fan Xpert 3
• Auto-Tuning Mode: Scans fan parameters and all fans with a single click.
• 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 you to fix the fan speed.

Precise Digital Power Control
To go faster than fast you need ultra-accurate power control — so Strix B250H Gaming is kitted out with ASUS Digi+ Power Control for enhanced system stability and superb power efficiency. Digi+ Power Control is the industry's leading digital power controller and it's fully compliant with Intel's IMVP8 specifications, for smoother, safer power.

RAMCache II: Speed Your Game Loads
Uniquely intelligent technology that effectively caches an entire storage device so that favourite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds, getting to work the moment it's activated. RAMCache II turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times - and of course it's compatible with the latest NVM Express storage options!

Automatically caches all your storage devices at the same time for optimal use of your system‘s caching resources.

Award-Winning BIOS Design
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 enthusiast, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way. In EZ Mode you can get set up very quickly, applying the date and time, fan profiles and Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory profiles. Switch to Advanced Mode to set up favorites and shortcuts, record and review recent changes with Last Modified or make notes in Quick Notes.

• CrashFree BIOS 3: Never again worry about corrupted BIOS, as CrashFree BIOS 3 lets you restore a PC to working order — even when it won't boot!
• EZ Flash 3: Update the latest BIOS via the internet or from within the system BIOS.


Networking

Intel Gigabit Ethernet: More Throughput and Less CPU Usage for Great Gaming Experiences
ROG Strix B250H Gaming features the very latest Intel Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead while offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for gaming.

• Lower CPU Workload.

LANGuard: Pumped-Up Throughput, Best Surge Protection
LANGuard means safer, more reliable connections for your battles! Advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounting processes join forces to protect your ROG Strix B250H Gaming's connection and deliver pumped-up throughput, plus electrostatically guarded and surge-protected components (ESD Guards) for 1.9x-greater tolerance to static electricity and 2.5x-greater protection (up to 15 kV) against surges!

• Surface-Mounted Capacitors.
• EMI Cover.

GameFirst IV: Team Up to Banish Lag
GameFirst IV optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming — and now we've added Multi-Gate Teaming to team all your networks for maximum bandwidth and the smoothest-ever gameplay. You'll also enjoy all-new Intelligent mode, which automatically compiles a database by parsing new app data to ensure that every game is optimized for the best performance.
