    ASUS X99-A/USB 3.1 Motherboard

    The X99-A/USB 3.1 Motherboard from ASUS has 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 built in and is designed to fit in standard sized ATX cases. The 12.0 x 9.6" X99-A supports Intel Core i7 processors, the LGA2011-v3 socket, and the Intel X99 chipset. It has been designed to deliver power and speed to Internet browsing, extreme gaming, CAD software, and more. Power is critical for performance so the X99-A employs a Digital 8 Phase Power Design as well as an OC Socket that uses extra pins to connect a proprietary circuit to contacts found on Haswell-E's land grid array (LGA). Combined with ASUS UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface), this feature enables DDR4 memory frequencies and helps lower latencies and enhance stability while overclocking. The motherboard also features 5-Way Optimization, which includes better CPU performance, power saving and digital power control, fan control, and system cooling. The ASUS X99-A is compatible with Windows 8.1, 8, and 7 operating systems.

    Highlighted Features of this Motherboard

    CPU / DDR4 / OC Socket

    Designed to help increase performance, the ASUS OC Socket utilizes extra pins to connect a circuit to contacts found on Haswell-E's land grid array (LGA). Combined with customized ASUS UEFI, this feature helps enable higher DDR4 memory frequencies, lower latencies, and enhanced stability while overclocking, extending all the way to extreme overclocking conditions, such as Liquid Nitrogen (LN2). The OC Socket is compatible with the Haswell-E LGA 2011-v3 CPUs, ensuring the ideal combination of overclocking performance and compatibility

    Cache Bus Voltage Adjustment

    Cache bus links areas such as CPU cores, DDR4 memory controllers, the system agent and the shared L3 cache. It serves as an interconnect for the whole CPU subsystem. Higher cache bus frequency also directly gives faster total sub-system performance. The ASUS OC Socket provides an adjustable cache bus voltage to help reach higher cache bus frequencies

    Memory Speed

    This motherboard supports DDR4 memory and it's able to drive memory frequencies to 3200 MHz and beyond when overclocked. ASUS T-Topology circuit design plus OC Socket helps provide memory-overclocking capabilities to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimizing coupling noise and signal reflection. With equidistant memory channels, it delivers the balanced control and powerful overclocking compatibility

    5-Way Optimization

    One click takes care of complex tuning. Your PC is smart with ASUS 5-Way Optimization. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of your system based on real-time use - so you get increased CPU performance, energy savings, stable digital power, cool and quiet fans, and networking and audio settings that are tailored for the apps that you are using. In short, 5-Way Optimization helps ensure that your PC is perfect for gaming, entertainment, productivity, and more

    Fan Xpert 3

    Fan Xpert 3 puts 4-pin/3-pin CPU and case fan controls in one place. It scans each fan's characteristics and delivers custom settings for each fan based on the dedicated area temperatures detected by hardware thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 3 helps make sure every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and low noise. Fan Xpert 3 supports hardware-level PWM/DC combo mode for both the CPU and case fans. It even can reduce the CPU fan speed to below the default minimum, for extra-quiet and power saving operation during light loads.
