CPU performance boost
Unleash your PC's full performance with a simple two-phase onboard switch or the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility! The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) offers precise voltage control and advanced monitoring for the CPU and the graphics card, enabling great freedom to adjust CPU frequencies and ratios for optimized performance and to exploit the potential out of your graphics card.
All-round energy efficiency
With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy real-time, system-wide power savings. EPU detects and adjusts power consumption according to the PC's needs — automatically. It can also reduce CPU wattage to a set level and deliver even more savings with Away Mode. This 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!
Advanced fan and water-pump controls for ultimate cooling and quietness
With 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 cooling performance and low noise!
- Dedicated water-pump header for best water-cooling efficiency.
- Auto-Tuning Mode: Scans and detects fan characteristics for single-click customization
- 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.
