AI Life Series motherboards bring lifestyle and personal
computing together. They entertain you with TV, radio and
Dolby support, and link you to the rest of the world via
wireless connection(WiFi-TV bundle edition only). To create
a peaceful environment, several new and improved innovations
are also included to reduce noise and temperature. Don't
change your way of life for a computer. Instead let the ASUS
Life Series improve the quality of your life.
Stack Cool 2
Stack Cool 2 is a fan-less and zero-noise cooling solution.
It effectively transfers heat generated by the critical
components to the other side of the specially designed
PCB (printed circuit board) for effective heat dissipation.
With PCs serving as the entertainment centerpiece and
playing a bigger role in our lives, quiet operation
is in high demand. No one wants to hear the cooling
fan spinning when watching a movie or listening to
music. The ASUS AI Quiet function dynamically controls
CPU speed and reduces temperature and fan speeds when
peace and quiet are what you desire.

Intel in LGA775 package. With 1066/ 800/ 533MHz FSB,
Hyper-Threading Technology and core-speeds up to 3.8GHz
and beyond, Intel's LGA775 Pentium 4 is one of the
fastest desktop processors to date.
Enjoy the extraordinary CPU power from the latest dual-core
CPU. The advanced processing technology contains two
physical CPU cores with individually dedicated L2 caches
to satisfy the rising demand for more powerful processing
Intel 955X chipset
The Intel 955X is the latest chipset designed to support
maximum 8GB dual-channel DDR2 667/533 architecture, 1066/800
FSB (front-side-bus), PCI Express x16 graphics and dual-core
CPU. Easily build an entertainment PC or create a multimedia
environment with its exceptionally high bandwidth. Together with the 4 Serial
ATA ports enabled through the SATA 3Gb/s RAID controller integrated in the
ICH7R Southbridge, the Intel 955X satisfies multi-task processing and data
Intel® MPT (Intel® Memory Pipeline
The Intel® Memory Pipeline Technology (Intel MPT) delivers
additional system-level performance by optimizing memory
access between CPU and system memory, and allows increased
performance at standard operating specifications.
DDR2 800 Support
To attain top performance, ASUS engineers successfully
unleashed the true potential of DDR2 memory. Native DDR2
800 maximizes system performance by eliminating the bottleneck
when overclocking both the CPU and memory, providing great
performance for 3D graphics and other memory demanding
Universal PCI-E Slot
The Universal PCI Express technology offers utilization
flexibility of the Southbridge PCI Express interface.
It enables users to plug in an additional PCI Express
graphics card to set up a dual graphics card platform
on a single motherboard. ASUS' own smart quick switch
further detects how users installed their PCI Express
devices, and intelligently reroutes the PCI Express lanes
for optimized bandwidth allocation.
ASUS Hyper Path3
Data transfers within the system are made possible by various
mechanisms that synchronize the sending and receiving
of commends among components. Unfortunately, these mechanisms
cause data transfer delays known as latency time. This
unique feature significantly shortens latency time during
data transfers, allowing users to experience the real
power of their computers.
Cooling fans, though a popular thermal solution, also come
with noise and malfunction likelihood. ASUS Motherboard's
fanless concept is specifically created to provide a
cool environment without all the baggage. ASUS has devoted
special efforts to address the thermal issues across
the motherboard, and most notably the areas that reside
the CPU, power, Northbridge and Southbridge. The heat
sinks and strategic board layout are tailor made to dissipate
heat in the most efficient manner. With the addition
of Stack Cool 2, users can even overclock without a noisy,
Inject "nitrous oxide" into your CPU! The patented
AI NOS™ (Non-delay
Overclocking System) technology intelligently detects system load and automatically
boosts performance for the most demanding tasks. Unlike other dynamic overclocking
techniques, AI NOS™ reacts much faster to satisfy your unending need
This latest technology, PEG (PCI Express Graphics) Link
Mode, is a unique feature that enables users to boost
graphics card performance for superior video quality.
PEG Link allows users to raise GPU and VGA memory throughput via the motherboard
BIOS the same way system bus and memory bus are tweaked. PEG Link Mode enables
powerful video performance on DX8 and DX9 applications. ASUS engineers carefully
fine-tuned the parameters for every single PCI-Express card to provide system
stability during high-speed graphics operation.
Precision Tweaker vDIMM
Precision Tweaker is designed for serious overclockers.
It offers ways to raise system performance inch-by-inch
and step-by-step to achieve maximum performance! This
is about getting the most out of your machine, and taking
pride in your customized computer. Precision Tweaker

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.
PCI Express Architecture
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that
will replace the existing PCI. With a bus bandwidth 4
times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express
x16 bus performs much better than AGP 8X in applications
such as 3D gaming. PCI Express x1 also outperforms PCI
interface with its exceptional high bandwidth up to 500MB/s.
The high speed PCI Express interface creates new usages
on desktop PCs e.g., Gigabit LAN, 1394b, and high-speed
