TOP-SPEED PROTECTED NETWORKING

Loaded with the best networking tech, including high-speed Intel® Gigabit Ethernet and ASUS-exclusive LANGuard and GameFirst III, your connections are faster and safer to stay ahead of the pack!

Intel Gigabit Ethernet

More throughput, less CPU usage and great gaming experiences

Featuring 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. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay.

LANGuard

Pumped-up throughput. Best surge protection

Signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounting ensure a more reliable connection and better 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 15KV) against surges.

GameFirst III

Banish lag, play smooth

Exclusive GameFirst III prioritizes game-related packets and allocates more bandwidth to games, eliminating laggy gameplay, streaming stutters and file-sharing slowdown — so you'll always be the frontrunner. Choose from Optimization, Game, Media Streaming or File Sharing presets and watch your network fly!

PERFORMANCE LEVEL UP

Packed with ASUS-exclusive Pro Clock technology, second-generation ASUS T-Topology, AI Suite 3 and RAMCache to unleash the full potential of your gaming performance.

Go Faster with PRO Clock technology

A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel® processors that extends overclocked base clock frequencies up to 400MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU), to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.

Advantages of ASUS Pro Clock:

  • Reduced boot up time
  • Lower jitter under extreme conditions for higher overclocks
  • Increased stability under heavy overclocking

* BCLK overclocking range will vary according to CPU capabilities, cooling, motherboard support and tuning options.

DDR4 overclocking strength in numbers

Second-generation ASUS T-Topology enables DDR4 memory overclocking to reach new heights: over DDR4-3400MHz with all memory slots populated. Featuring a customized trace layout for reduced crosstalk and coupling noise, our second-generation T-Topology ensures time-aligned signal transfer for improved memory stability and compatibility.

One-stop performance-optimization panel

AI Suite 3 is an exclusive ASUS dashboard-style control panel that lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your Z170 Pro Gaming-based system for the best balance between performance, stability, efficiency and aesthetics — all via a simple and intuitive interface.

  • 5-way optimization - Dynamically adjusts ASUS TPU (TurboV Processing Unit), EPU (Energy Processing Unit) and Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM), Fan Xpert 3 and Turbo App technologies for precision-enhanced performance and efficiency, and all with a single click.
  • LED Control - Customizing the audio and marque LEDs is easy: just flip the switches and pick the radio buttons that match your style and gaming mood!
  • Fan Xpert 3 - Via five 4/3 pin (PWM/DC) combo fan connectors and five onboard thermal sensors, Fan Xpert 3 makes sure every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise. Z170 Pro gaming also has a fan-extension (EXT) header for quick-and-easy fan upgrades.
  • USB 3.1 Boost - An exclusive utility that automatically accelerates USB 3.1 for sequential read/write speeds of up to 854.6/863.9MB/s.
    * It requires to update USB 3.1 Boost to V1.08.02 or later version

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 overclocker, 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, and from within the BIOS.

RAMCache

Speed your game loads

Uniquely-intelligent technology that effectively caches an entire storage device so that 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!
