An industry first, ASUS has placed Thunderbolt I/O technology onboard, and are set to revolutionize the speed at which peripherals and displays operate. Featuring a maximum bi-directional speed of 10 Gbps, Thunderbolt is 2 times faster than USB 3.0 and an incredible 20 times faster than USB 2.0. And with the ability to daisy-chain up to six devices without the need for a hub or switch, that means less overheard for a clutter free computing experience. For example, users can connect multiple native Thunderbolt storage devices, an HD video capture device and even an HD display to a single Thunderbolt chain while maintaining maximum throughput. You can also connect a DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI or VGA display with an existing adapter.
SSD Caching II has been upgraded with a multiple caching function, adding four extra SATA 6Gb/s onboard. This feature offers performance upgrades by using multiple installed SSDs with no capacity limitations as a cache for frequently accessed data. It also allows user to choose the combinateion that suits their needs. For example, you can choose three SSDs matched with one HDD or two SSDs with two HDDs. Harness a combination of SSD-like performance and response and hard drive capacity with a single click, without the need to reboot for instant activation and complete ease of use. As an added bonus, it can even prevent data loss with the included backup function, so you can rest easy knowing your data is secure.
A 32GB mSATA based SSD is onboard, enabling Intel® Smart Response and Rapid Start Technology™ for super-fast boot up and reduced resume times.
The world’s first Dual Intelligent Processors from ASUS pioneered twin onboard chips - TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) and EPU (Energy Processing Unit). Dual Intelligent Processors 3 builds on that foundation with new SMART DIGI+ power control, which includes multiple digital voltage controllers, allowing ultra-precise tuning for the CPU, iGPU and DRAM. It’s upgraded with one-click extreme performance optimization and selectable CPU wattage levels, offering easier power control and better power savings with the user-friendly AI Suite II utility.

Anyways ill get right to it. Amazing Motherboard, coupled with the recent bios update enables a fast boot option - a sort of laptop boot if you will. My computer boots from cold in 15-20 seconds (using ssd obviously, only way to go)
Lots of Sata III ports
Thunderbolt - incase i ever get a device that utilizes it
Onboard SSD ment for caching a HDD but i just use for some games - Hitman Series mostly
For me None.
Glad I moved from a problematic Gigabyte board to this one.
Marvel Caching (SSD Caching II) can't cache two mechanical HDDs in a RAID 0 within only one SSD for instance. It's a one SSDs for one HDD, or two SSDs for two HDDs, or three SSDs to one HDD.
However the Intel Chipset coped with this fine - 1 xSSD for 2 xHDDs in a RAID 0.
I am personally using the onboard mSATA drive to cache the Hard Disks on the Intel Chipset. However you could just use the mSATA to host the Operating System and nothing else.
I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about this quite excellent motherboard
Had this board installed in my PC for just a week and already delighted with it! Every feature you could ever want is right there.
The overclocking ability with this board is second to none. The build quality is fantastic.
The stability of my system is rock solid with this chipset. Would not expect anything less from Asus.
Buy one! you will not regret it!
This is a professional motherboard with lots of features. I love the storage:
- You will get 6x Sata 6Gb/s, and 3x sata 3Gb/s ports, 1 mini sata port.
- The Bios will give you a plenty options if you want to overclock or change any other settings.
I did not updated my bios, and Im strongly against. I dont advice you to doit unless you need to support a new device, and you know what you are doing.
- Working well with Windows Xp 32 but later I changed my os to Windows 7 64 for a better processor and memory usage.
- You can check on Asus website all Cpu/Memory support, and you can download all drivers what you need for the OS.
Is easy to monitor all sensors with AI Suite II, and they can be read by other software like Aida64 Extreme.
I can say is a great motherboard, no problems so far.
does what it says on the box
with one exception the two grey white sata 6...top one is sata six bottom reads sata 3.
i have identical drives when i swap the cables it always the same sata 6gb top sata3 bot go figure .
gonna still play for a few weeks before i declare a fault..
with thanks ...mike
Its easy to install but a word of warning, the manual tells you to install the WiFi go last which is wrong since you have to screw it under the mother board so install this first or you will end up having to re install the motherboard :(
Anyway onto the motherboard, works fine. Features are great !!. Thunderbolt drive have is amazingly fast and you can pick one up for around £200 but the thunderbolt wire which you will need costs around £69 as of 16/03/13 so there not cheap but you might able to pick them up for less if you shop around.
Overclocking the board is as easy as pushing a button on the board itself or just using the "auto level up" software that comes with the CD. I could not get the CD to work with windows 8 so you will need to download the relevant software from ASUS website.
All the features work and have not had any problems with them and believe me it will take months to fully play around with them all
ASUS suite works great and gives you easy control of manual Overclocking and Fan control along with tons of other features such as USB speed boost which works great, and boost speeds nearly double the rate (read and write) . I did find the quick USB charge a bit gimmicky since there was not much of a difference in charge times for my iphone 5 but maybe will work better for other devices.
Setting up raid is simple and you have two options of going marvel or intel. (Have two SSD's in raid 0) I will hopefully try the SSD caching with my old hard drives in the future when i can get around to doing it.
All in all great motherboard would have been 5 stars but the manual let it down with regards to installing WiFI go.
Would recommend if your going to be using all the features!
