PCI Express® 3.0

PCI Express® 3.0 (PCIe 3.0) is the latest PCI Express bus standard with improved encoding schemes that provide twice the performance of current PCIe 2.0. Total bandwidth for a x16 link reaches a maximum of 32GB/s, double the 16GB/s of PCIe 2.0 (in x16 mode). As such, PCIe 3.0 provides users unprecedented data speeds, combined with the convenience and seamless transition offered by complete backward compatibility with PCIe 1.0 and PCIe 2.0 devices. PCIe 3.0 will become a must-have feature for users who wish to improve and optimize graphic performance, as well as have the latest technology available to them. * Actual PCIe 3.0 speed varies with the installed CPU type.

UEFI BIOS (EZ Mode): Flexible & Easy BIOS Interface

Exclusive to ASUS motherboards, its UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) is the first ever mouse-controlled graphical BIOS interface designed with dual selectable modes. It delivers a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only BIOS controls to enable more flexible and convenient input with quick scrolling. Users can easily navigate the UEFI BIOS with the smoothness of their operating system. Quick and simple overclocking and setup sharing is facilitated by the F12 hotkey BIOS snapshot feature. The exclusive EZ Mode displays frequently-accessed setup info, while the Advanced Mode is for experienced performance enthusiasts that demand far more intricate system control, including detailed DRAM information.

Intel® Smart Response Technology: SSD Speed with HDD Capacity

Intel® Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance. It uses an installed fast SSD (min 18.6GB available capacity) as a cache for frequently accessed data. Harness the combination of SSD-like performance and response with hard drive capacity, that's 4X faster than a HDD-only system. * Support Intel® Smart Response Technology on 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family

Great motherboard

Fantastic board. Nice EFI bios interface. Lots of options and features including some bluetooth software for connection to android and streaming audio which was a nice surprise. Lots of usb 2.0 and 3.0 aswell as a full complement of sata ports.

The automatic overclocking features are a bit lax and seem to cause the board to crash but that is easily resolved by setting up the overclocking manually. Currently running i7 2700k at 4.6ghz comfortably using this board.

Great system board. Have always used ASUS motherboards so no unexpected surprises.

Very well spec'd, being a GEN3 with Ivybridge support is big bonus.

Only minor point is that I should have got the Pro for more sata ports! 6 not enough for me. Still very pleased with.

this motherboard has all you will need at a good price too PCI Express 3.0 UEFI Bios + Intel smart response so you don't have to buy a big SSD to get fast Hard Drive speed's as it can use the ssd as a big hard drive cache. The motherboard was as easy as 1 2 3 to set up and to overclock is just like a b c, easy just make sure you have some good cooling as my i7 2600k was easy to put at 4.4GHZ on this motherboard but had to back it off as I need a better CPU cooler. I would recommend this board to any one on a budget Dabs.com first class as always A** Cheers **
