Connect with Unparalleled Speed
ASUS X99-A II supports a myriad of ultra-fast connectivity options such as onboard USB 3.1 for breakneck 10Gb/s transfer speeds over both USB 3.1 Type-A and reversible Type-C connections, revolutionary U.2 and M.2 connectivity with support for the latest NVMe storage solutions and up to 32Gb/s transfers.
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process integrates the slot with the fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
Tweak and tune to your heart's content with easy access to hardware monitors and performance controls. With intuitive features such as EZ Flash 3 for updating to the latest BIOS over the internet, EZ Tuning Wizard for streamlined system tuning, and more, we've got you covered. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the included EZ and Advanced Modes helped you find what you need quickly and easily.
By dynamically optimizing aspects of your system in real-time, 5-Way Optimization ensures your PC is ready for every scenario, from gaming to productivity and everything in between. A single click tunes CPU performance and overclocking, everyday energy savings, ultra-stable digital power, cool and quiet fans, and even per-application customizable profiles to automatically apply overclocking, cooling, networking and audio settings.
Fan Xpert 4
Fan Xpert 4 elevates customized cooling to new heights with easy control within Windows and the UEFI BIOS. It auto-detects PWM/DC fans on all headers, ties fans to multiple temperature sensors, and supports high-amperage fans and liquid-cooling pumps. We've even got you covered just in case with a dedicated circuit protecting each fan header from both over-termperature and over-current conditions.
