Drive CPU and DDR4 performance beyond all expectations!
Patent Pending OC Socket
Designed to break performance barriers, ASUS OC Socket utilizes extra pins to connect a proprietary circuit to contacts found on Haswell-E's land grid array (LGA). Combined with our customized UEFI, this exclusive feature enables higher DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies and enhanced stability while overclocking, extending all the way to extreme overclocking conditions, such as Liquid Nitrogen (LN2). OC Socket is 100% compatible with new Haswell-E LGA 2011-v3 CPUs, ensuring the ideal combination of overclocking performance and compatibility.
Unique Cache Bus Voltage Adjustment
Cache bus links areas such as CPU cores, DDR4 Memory Controllers, System Agent and the shared L3 Cache. It is a critical interconnect for the whole CPU subsystem. Higher cache bus frequency directly gives faster total sub-system performance. ASUS OC Socket exclusively provides an adjustable cache bus voltage to reach higher cache bus frequencies.
Reference tuning ratio range is up to 30. ASUS OC Socket tuning ratio range is 45+!
Cache bus links all the essential CPU areas together. Higher cache bus frequency boosts PC performance!

All-round energy efficiency
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you will enjoy from system-wide real-time power savings, controlled via a simple onboard switch or the AI Suite 3 utility. EPU detects and adjusts power consumption according to the PC's needs — automatically. It can also reduce CPU wattage to an indicated level or enjoy even more savings with Away Mode, which 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!
DIGI+ Power Control
Power control is one of the most essential motherboard designs. Intelligent CPU power draw detection with ASUS DIGI+ Power Control is an innovative, industry-leading technology that fully complies with Intel® VRD12.5 specifications, increasing overclocking potential, enhancing system stability, and improving power efficiency with superior flexibility and accurate control.
App specific optimization for professionals and gamers
Gamers and professionals can get benefit from app specific optimizations by the exclusive ASUS Turbo App. Its intuitive tuning panel boosts a range of hardware; overclock your CPU, tune your fans, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings automatically.
Plug in up to three extra fans for a maximum of nine fans (including 2 CPU fans and 7 case fans), each with independent control from either UEFI BIOS or AI Suite 3. Each fan can be up to 12W. It is ideal for water cooled or extreme airflow under high performance systems.
Ultrafast speed with PCIE slot flexibility
Add the PCI-Express 4x add-in card into any slot that suits your PC build, and pump M.2 performance up to a blistering 32Gbit/s, delivering unmatched performance. Upgrade without limitations as any M.2 card between 2230 to full length 22110 is supported.
Fastest onboard Wi-Fi up to 1300Mb/s
3x3 dual band 2.4/5GHz antennas included. 802.11ac* Wi-Fi up to 1300Mb/s** transfer speed
