ASUS is
proud to introduce the Commando, a new addition to its R.O.G (Republic of
Gamers) family of gaming motherboards. The Commando provides extreme
overclockability for enhanced performance, and unique features to jazz up the
gaming features and simplify the DIY process. Supporting the Intel® P965 Express Chipset, maximum 8GB dual-channel DDR2
architecture, PCI Express x16 graphics and multi-core CPU, the Commando is ready
for the latest computing hardware and software specifications. With superior
engineering, the Commando provides unmatched overclockability, taking FSB and
memory up to 2,280MHz and 1,300MHz, respectively.

Extreme Tweaker – One stop performance tune-up

Extreme Tweaker is a one stop solution for fine-tuning system performance.
Frequency adjustment, over-voltage options, memory settings etc. can all be
tweaked with this feature, which is found exclusively in ASUS motherboards.

8-phase cap-less power – Reliable power supply and longer component life

The 8-phase cap-less power design demonstrates two hardcore commitments of R.O.G.:
ultimate overclocking capability, and trustworthy stability. 8-phase cap-less
power yields unparalleled superiority in the overclocking arena, while the EL
cap-less design removes any worries of capacitor problems once and for all.

Onboard Switch – Turn system on/off, reset and clear CMOS with one push of a
button

Overclockers and power users typically build systems outside of the case, and
hence they need to short the front panel pins to power up or restart the system,
switch jumpers, and pop the battery to clear CMOS. With the Commando, doing all
that is now just a push of a button.

LCD Poster – Easy System Tweaking with Style

Most hardcore users and engineers install a debug card, which displays a
two-digit code that enables them to recognize which part of the system is
responsible for hanging the system during boot-up. LCD Poster, located at the
back I/O, displays the names of each boot-process instead of using codes. When
system hangs due to faulty connection or configuration, the LCD Poster will
freeze on the displayed process name that caused the hang up, allowing users to
know exactly what needs to be fixed.
