Description

ASUS 5X Protection 
All-round protection provides the best quality, reliability, and durability – ASUS motherboards guard your PC with 5X Protection. We use quality components like DIGI+ VRM digital power for precise CPU power on demand, ESD units tested to strict standards that eliminate electrostatic interference, and resettable fuses around DRAM slots to prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. We also use corrosion-resistant back I/O shields, all examples of ASUS providing the best possible reliability and durability.

DIGI+ VRM 

Precise Power Control and Long-Lasting Stability
Voltage regulator modules (VRMs) are among the most essential motherboard components. A good VRM intelligently delivers CPU power based on actual needs at any given time. ASUS was first with digital power design featuring faster sensing and response to deliver precise CPU power on demand. This great accuracy reduces energy waste and of course improves system stability thanks to more consistent delivery.

 

Enhanced DRAM Overcurrent Protection 

Short-Circuit Damage Prevention
Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard system and device lifespan.

 

H81M-D PLUS

ESD Guards 

Strong ESD Protection for Extended Component Lifespan
Electrostatic discharges (ESD) can happen suddenly, and their damaging effects are often underestimated. ASUS ESD Guards offer an active protective circuit design that ensures electrostatic discharges are properly grounded, providing greater component longevity.

 

H81M-D PLUS

High-Quality 5,000-Hour Solid State Capacitors 

2.5 Times Longer Lifespan with Excellent Durability
ASUS high-quality solid state capacitors assure a 5,000-hour lifespan, equivalent to 2.5 times longer than traditional capacitors. All capacitors pass testing under temperatures as high as 221°F (105°C) and meet Japanese industrial standards to provide excellent durability and enhanced thermal capacity.

 

H81M-D PLUS

Stainless Steel Back I/O 

3 Times More Durable Corrosion-Resistant Coating
ASUS motherboard back I/O panels are made from strong and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which is bonded with a thin layer of chromium oxide to enhance anti-corrosive properties. Passing 72-hour spray salt endurance tests, ASUS stainless steel back I/O panels have a usage life three times longer compared to ordinary panels.

New UEFI BIOS – Friendlier and More Intuitive 

Exclusive EZ Mode Adds Useful Info to Become Even Easier
Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS provides the smoothest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS, and now features more intuitive functions to quickly take you to favorite BIOS pages and frequently-accessed settings through custom shortcuts. You can even write quick notes in-BIOS for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports. EZ Mode has a whole new look, upgraded with extra-friendly capabilities like detailed fan controls, XMP profile settings, SATA information, and fast clock adjustment. Together, these perfect your BIOS experience.

USB 3.0 Boost (UASP Support) 

170% Higher Transfer Speeds than Traditional USB 3.0
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) in Windows 8. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to already fast USB 3.0 performance. ASUS software automatically accelerates data rates for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without any user interaction.

  • World's 1st USB 3.0 UASP Support – instantly 170% faster
  • Complete USB 3.0 Solution – performance boost under Turbo Mode or UASP Mode for most USB devices
  • Simple Plug and Boost – auto detection design ensures best performance

Q-Slot 

Effortless PCI Express Component Removal
Press the Q-Slot clip lightly, and graphics cards just pop out. The large winged clip is easy to reach so you don't have to struggle with installing or removing even the biggest graphics cards.

 

ASUS Boot Setting 

Multiple Startup Options
Thanks to ASUS Windows 8 hardware optimization, ASUS Boot Setting provides better flexibility in customizing your PC's startup process. You can shorten system boot-up time to 2-seconds for a smoother user experience under Windows 8, and even previous versions of Windows. Also, you can enter the BIOS directly with one click through a user-friendly interface, and quickly select your preferred system boot up method: either get to the OS in seconds or opt for regular boot up. Whatever your choice, settings are saved and persistent, with no need to choose every time you power on.
