LIVEDASH OLED 2”
Indicates power status and potential problems with the CPU, memory, graphics card or boot device for quick diagnosis.
2 X SAFESLOTS
Provides stronger PCIe device retention and greater shearing resistance.
The three chassis fan headers feature the ASUS HYDRANODE circuit, which utilizes a powerline communication protocol to control up to three daisy chained fans independently through each 4-pin connector.
LED panel shows a 2-digit code to reflect system status.
4 X Q-DIMM
One sided clips for super-simple, super-secure handling of memory modules.
At its default, the FlexKey functions as a system reset button, but it can also be easily set to quickly turn Aura lighting on or off, activate Safe Boot or enter the BIOS.
PCIE SLOT Q-RELEASE
A physical button unlocks the first PCIe slot’s security latch with one tap, greatly simplifying the process of detaching a PCIe card from the motherboard when it’s time to upgrade to a new GPU or other compatible device.
The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an M.2 SSD without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive and neatly eliminate traditional screws.
Simple adapter that helps arrange front-panel cables in an orderly manner.
