Upgrade CPUs with Just “One-Click”!
The CPU Level Up feature provides easy upgrading of CPU performances without
extra costs or prior overclocking knowledge. All the user needs to do is to
choose a processor speed they want and the motherboard will do the rest. Extreme
Tweaker, a “one stop shop” application for overclocking, has an extensive array
of options to fine-tune frequencies, over-voltage or memory timings to make
instant performance upgrades easier than ever! ROG fully recommends these
exclusive technologies, and they can be found on the ROG Striker II Extreme and
Formula Series, the ROG Rampage Formula and ROG Crosshair II Formula
Fusion Block System for Cooler Thermal Performance
The Fusion Block System combines the renowned heatpipe design with the added
ability to connect to a water cooling system. Users will enjoy cooler thermal
performances with a single connection – providing a versatile, efficient, and
advanced thermal system for even better overclocking results! This exclusive
technology is currently available on the ROG Striker II Extreme and ROG Maximus
World’s First ASUS TOP Graphics Card Series
ASUS ROG believes in living in the fast lane. That’s why the world’s first
overclocking versions of the latest NVIDIA GeForce and ATI GPUs – the ASUS TOP
Series of graphic cards, symbolize the epitome of speed and performance. Gamers
can expect astounding core, shader, and memory clock performance boosts that
empower higher 3DMark06 scores in comparison to any other reference boards. ASUS
ROG fully advocates the use of the ASUS TOP series, which currently encompass
the latest ASUS EN9600GT TOP, EAH3870X2 TOP and EAH3870 TOP graphic cards.
Overclock the Shader Clock with New SmartDoctor
ASUS’ SmartDoctor application is the world’s first overclocking utility that
is able to tweak the Shader Clock on GPUs. This handy application will enable
users to overclock the Shader Clock and Engine Clock independently for an
astonishing performance boosts without the hassle of rebooting or re-flashing
their BIOS. This leading technology is available on the ASUS EN9600GT, EAH3870X2
and EAH3870 graphic cards, to name a few.
ASUS OC Gear for Easy Real-time Overclocking
In keeping with the ROG’s credo, overclocking with just a simple twist of a
knob is no longer a dream! The ASUS OC GEAR allows real-time adjustments to
easily switch menu options that include the GPU clock, memory clock, and fan
speeds to suit different game requirements. With an easy-to-read mirror LED
display, the OC GEAR also displays real-time graphics card information – making
it the perfect tool to easily overclock, control system settings and keep an eye
on temperatures at a glance. Furthermore, hassle-free installation – even for
first-time PC DIYers, allows gamers to simply plug the OC GEAR to the chassis
through an internal 4-pin USB connector and it’s done! This edition of the OC
GEAR will be packaged with the ASUS EAH3850 graphic card.
Look the Part of a True Gamer with ASUS’ Vento Series
The chassis of every PC can be said to represent the image of the gamer, and
what better way to establish the image than with one that combines sleek curves
