ASUS takes its name from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that symbolizes wisdom and knowledge. ASUS embodies the strength, purity, and adventurous spirit of this fantastic creature, and soars to new heights with each new product it creates.
Our be-the-best ethos underscores the choice of every single component that goes into your ASUS motherboard. We focus relentlessly on quality to ensure long-term system reliability and performance.LANGuard for advanced LAN protection
ASUS LANGuard socket has advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, while surge-protected and electrostatically-guarded components (ESD Guards) protect your motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.Enhanced DRAM overcurrent protection
Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of both your system and connected device.5K-hr solid-state capacitors that last 2.5X longer
Solid-state capacitors are able to withstand extreme temperatures of up to 105°C for as long as 5,000 hours that's two-and-a-half (2.5X) times longer than traditional capacitors. This exceptional durability means superb real-world endurance to more typical PC operating temperatures, ensuring that ASUS motherboards continue working longer.Stainless-steel back I/O that lasts 3X longer
ASUS motherboard back I/O panels are made from strong and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which is bonded with a thin layer of chromium oxide to enhance anti-corrosive properties. Passing 72-hour spray salt endurance tests, ASUS stainless steel back I/O panels have a lifespan that's three times (3X) longer compared to ordinary panels.ESD Guards for protection from electrostatic discharge
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. ASUS ESD Guards are tested to very high standards, capable of up to +/- 10kV for air discharge and +/-6kV for contact discharge. We employ an active protective circuit design to guard your system against electrostatic interference and damage, providing greater component longevity.Keyboard and mouse connectors

Having the freedom to pick and choose the parts that go into your machine is at the heart of PC DIY. Our extensive certification program focuses on providing the very best compatibility with the widest range of components and devices, giving you the freedom to build and upgrade without frustration. Compatible today and compatible far into the future that's the ASUS way.Complete & Public QVL
We're so confident in our Braswell-based motherboards' superior compatibility that we publish our entire QVL for all to see delivering you more choices for worry-free PC-building experiences. There are no gaps in our QVL: every compatible component is on the list for all to see. To check that a particular component or device is compatible with your motherboard, just reference the QVL for instant reassurance.Top-to-bottom reliability
Our motherboards have superb endurance. We verify this by subjecting every board to over 7,000 hours of stringent tests. A barrage of burn-in, environmental, compatibility, software and safety tests confirm that our motherboards are exceptionally robust with reliability that surpasses industry standards.Audio Shielding
Ensures precision analog/digital separation and greatly reduced multi-lateral interference.Special layout design
Separate layers for left and right channels to guard the quality of the sensitive audio signals.Premium Japanese-made audio capacitors
Provides warm, natural and immersive sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity.4K/Ultra HD visual excellence
Native support for 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160 via HDMI or DisplayPort that's four times the pixel count of 1080p (1920 x 1080), offering incredible visual clarity, detail, and realism.170% faster transfer speeds with USB 3.0 Boost
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) USB 3.0 in Windows 8. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to already fast USB 3.0 performance. ASUS software automatically accelerates data rates for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without any user interaction.Power efficiency plus high-resolution graphics, thanks to the integrated Intel Celeron® Quad-Core SoC Processor N3150 with HD Graphics support.
This motherboard features an integrated Intel Celeron® Quad-Core Processor N3150 and Intel HD Graphics. This revolutionary 14nm ultra low voltage SoC (System On a Chip) combines superb processing power and advanced HD graphics support in one small, energy efficient design. Despite minimal power requirements, it still has the processing power to display the latest DirectX® 11.1 HD graphics. It features support for 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160, and also has integrated USB 3.0 support.Intel® Smart Connect Technology
Your computer can receive web updates with fresh content for selected applications, even when the system is in sleep mode. This means less time waiting for applications to update and sync with the cloud, leading to a more efficient computing experience.
