We all know that Asus has historically done a wonderful job in bringing to market some of the most innovative and highest-performing Intel motherboards that the market has ever seen. The board is dominated by interacting heatpipes in a totally fanless and silent design. Frankly, that information is based on an incorrect interpretation of performance data.

Power connections are split, but both the pin and 12v are on board edges, so bulky power cables don’t need to be snaked over the CPU. It’s also loaded with extra peripherals and eight-phase power.

With 8-phase power, passive heat-pipe cooling and two full x16 PCIe video slots, the Intel version had the goods to grab our attention. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile.

Customize The Tech Report Asus uses an eight-phase power solution that should deliver very consistent power to the CPU. Unless your needs are pretty basic, we would suggest disabling the on-board audio and installing a real sound card.
