the tasks. System will continue operating at minimum power and
noise when user is temporarily away. It keeps downloading files or
running applications in quietest state while you´re sleeping.
Simply click keyboard or mouse, you can swiftly wake up the system
in few seconds.
8 Phase Power Design
The ASUS 8-Phase Power Design provides highly efficient operation
to generate less heat (at least 15°C (59°F)) than other
conventional power solutions. It reduces input ripple current and
output ripple voltage, which keeps CPU and power module from
suffering the risk of high power stress. It has the advantages of
quick transient response and stability, especially beneficial when
CPU requires more current immediately under heavy loading or
Fanless Design - Stack Cool 2
offered exclusively by ASUS. It effectively transfers heat
generated by the critical components to the other side of the
specially designed PCB (printed circuit board) for effective heat
Fanless Design - Heat Pipe
The Heat Pipe design effectively directs the heat generated by the
chipsets to the heatsink near the back IO ports, where it can be
carried away by existing airflow from CPU fan or bundled optional
fan. The purpose of the innovative heat pipe design on this
motherboard is that the groundbreaking fanless design does not have
lifetime problems as a chipset fan does. Furthermore, it provides
options for users to install side-flow fan or passive cooler. The
Heat Pipe design is the most reliable fanless thermal solution to
ASUS Q-Fan2 technology intelligently adjusts both CPU fan and
chassis fan speeds according to system loading to ensure quiet,
cool and efficient operation.
This feature detects repetitive and stationary noises like computer
fans, air conditioners, and other background noises then eliminates
it in the incoming audio stream while recording.
The bundled Superbeam Array Microphone receives only the sound
coming from the reception cone and ignores the sound coming from
other directions. This mechanism eliminates a large number of
interferences including neighboring speakers and reverberations. It
also uses advanced de-reverberation techniques to reduce echo and
minimize its effect on the speech engine. This feature can enhance
speech-centric application like Skype, online game, video
conference and recording.
SATA on the Go
The P5B supports the next-generation hard drives based on the
Serial ATA (SATA) 3Gb/s storage specification, delivering enhanced
scalability and doubling the bus bandwidth for high-speed data
retrieval and saves. The external SATA port located at the back I/O
provides smart setup and hot-plug functions. Easily backup photos,
videos and other entertainment contents on external devices.
The Intel P965 chipsets incorporate six Serial ATA connectors with
high performance RAID functions in RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10. The JMicron
controller provides another two Serial ATA connectors for RAID 0,
1, and JBOD functions. This motherboard is the ideal solution to
enhance hard disk performance and data back up protection without
the cost of add-on cards.
Dual Gigabit LAN
The integrated dual Gigabit LAN design allows a PC to serve as a
network gateway for managing traffic between two separate networks.
This capability ensures rapid transfer of data from WAN to LAN
without any added arbitration or latency.
IEEE 1394a interface
IEEE 1394a interface provides high speed digital interface for
audio/video appliances such as digital television, digital video
camcorders, storage peripherals & other PC portable
High Definition Audio
Enjoy high-end sound system on your PC! The onboard 8-channel HD
audio (High Definition Audio, previously codenamed Azalia) CODEC
enables high-quality 192KHz/24-bit audio output, jack-sensing
feature, retasking functions and multi-streaming technology that
simultaneously sends different audio streams to different
destinations. You can now talk to your partners on the headphone
while playing a multi-channel network games. All of these are done
on one computer.
S/PDIF-out on Back I/O Port
This motherboard provides convenient connectivity to external home
theater audio systems via coaxial and optical S/PDIF-out
(SONY-PHILIPS Digital Interface) jacks. It allows to transfer
digital audio without converting to analog format and keeps the
best signal quality.
Uses 100% All High-quality Conductive Polymer
