OPTIMIZE YOUR NETWORK TRAFFIC Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimisation is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimisation leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking, but goes further by running a Prime95-based stress test that continually monitors the system.
AI Suite 3 helps gives the intelligence needed to automatically fine-tune your system The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) provides AI Suite 3 with the intelligence needed to automatically fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking settings. AI Suite 3 also provides AI Overclocking prediction values for users who want more insight when experimenting with different settings.
Save money and energy efficiency The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimises power consumption and maximises savings with Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.
renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) intelligently simplifies options for newcomers to PC DIY Fan Expert 4 provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers. Control is also possible via the award-winning ROG UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
optimise your PC for stability or full throttled gaming performance The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, allowing you to switch frequency and power-efficiency settings so you can fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.
Use the intuitive app to control many features easily This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritise network data and optimise audio settings at app level ? so your system is perfectly optimised for whatever you're doing.
ASUS Armoury Crate and More
Speed your game loads Armoury Crate is a new software utility designed to give you centralised control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate lets you easily customise RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronise them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system. You can also use Armoury Crate to download the user manual, drivers and software. In addition, Armoury Crate features a dedicated product registration page as well as a news feed to help you stay in touch with the gaming community.
