Two ProCool connectors ensure a snug and reliable connection to the EPS 12V power lines.
2. 20+1 power stages
The VRM features 20+1 power stages, each rated to handle 90 amps.
3. MicroFine alloy chokes
Each power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rated to handle 45 amps.
4. 10K black metallic capacitors
Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.
High quality components
DDR5 WITH AEMP
A VRM heatsink on the MOSFETs and chokes is connected to the aluminum I/O cover via an embedded heatpipe to increase mass and surface area for dissipation.
2. M.2 heatsinks
Three dedicated heatsinks keep up to three M.2 drives in the optimum operating temperature range for consistent performance and reliability.
3. L-shaped Heatpipe
An L-shaped heatpipe allows for rapid and even heat transfer from the VRM.
4. Chipset heatsink
A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to maintain optimum operating temperatures.
COOLER BY DESIGN
Multiple temperature sources:
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
4-pin PWM/DC fan headers and ASUS HYDRANODE:
Every onboard header auto-detects any PWM or DC fan, with three chassis fan headers offering ASUS HYDRANODE support.
A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, providing up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments.
2. Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet
Onboard Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with speeds that are 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet connections for speedy file transfers, smooth lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.
3. WiFi 6E antenna
The antenna has two built-in transmitters and receivers to enable faster transmission speeds, and it supports the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz bands.
4. Adjustable Design
Four-way positioning enables better signal reception.
5. Magnetic Base
A powerful magnetic base secures the antenna on the top or side of the PC case.

Audio Line Shielding:
Blocks electromagnetic interference from the motherboard or add-ons to provide cleaner audio.
The ESS® SABRE9018Q2C integrated DAC amplifier is capable of providing -115 dB total harmonic distortion (THD+N) for playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of the audio track. In addition, the 121 dB dynamic range (DNR) provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch.
ALC 4082 codec:
The ALC4082 codec uses a USB interface instead of the conventional high definition audio (HDA) interface and improves playback audio resolution from 192 to 384 kHz.
Unique design allows the codec's impedance-sensing function to be ported with either the front or rear headphone outputs
Fine-quality components that produce a warmer, natural sound with exceptional clarity and fidelity
