  • abit mGuru; With abit's unique mGuru technology now even the most novice users can fully monitor and control their system including voltages, fans and temperatures; it's all just a click away. The more advanced you become, the more you will appreciate the multitude of fine tuning features abit's mGuru technology holds for you.
  • OC Guru - AutoDrive™: By enabling AutoDrive, you can automatically apply different overclocking settings for different applications.
  • Hardware Monitoring: Monitor temperatures, voltages and fan settings in real time and with zero CPU usage.
  • Dedicated fan control: Keep control over your hardware. abit Fan EQ™ helps you keep an eye on your motherboard fans.
  • One Click BIOS Update: With abit's BIOS flash utility you can easily update your motherboard BIOS online or offline.
  • Auto-Detect Hardware Info: The abit BlackBox auto-detects hardware info for quick communication between users and abit Tech support.
  • abit SoftMenu™:The original jumperless motherboard design allows for CPU setting changes completely through the BIOS. For GigaOverclocking! Boost your PC's Performance by up to 50%. Convenient and easy-to-use fine tuning from within a self-explanatory BIOS menu.
  • bit CPU ThermalGuard™: The abit CPU ThermalGuard™ technology prevents the CPU from overheating and burning up in the case of any hardware cooling malfunction. This hardware thermal protection automatically shuts down your system when the CPU temperature reaches a certain threshold.



  •  Solid State Capacitors - For Best Stability: These advanced capacitors consist of conductive polymer and therefore offer a vast range of advantages such as higher temperature tolerance, higher ripple current and improved frequency characteristics over conventional electrolytic capacitors.
  •  New Generation Digital PWM - Cool and statble:  for a longer life: With the new Smart-Slave technology the power switch frequency can effectively be quadrupled over conventional PWMs. Digital PWMs offer most precise and consistent voltage supply for reduced power consumption, less heat and increased components' life. Next Generation Digital PWMs provide highest accuracy for the best computing experience ever, noise interferences are avoided and energy efficiency is highly increased by realizing ideal resistance ratings (low RDS) during charge-discharge power switching.
  • Onboard On/Off & Reset Buttons:  Installation and testing is a snap: The onboard on/off and reset switches allow for testing your system before you have integrated it into your case.
  • External CCMOS Button: Get back on track with ease - Clear the CMOS memory directly from the back panel, using abit's innovative new EZ switch. So if you are pushing your hardware to the extreme and experiment with risky settings, you now have a an easy and convenient way to go back to save grounds.
  • Extendor Silent Dual Pipe Cooling: The copper based dual-heatpipe heat sink with extra slim fins and an additional cooling Extendor maximizes heat dissipation by linking the North Bridge high-fin heat-sink via a heatpipe to on extra high-fin heat-sink. The Digital PWM silent cooling heat sink consists of extra slim and extra high fins thereby effectively increasing cooling. In addition this special design utilizes the airflow of the CPU cooler to blow heat out of your case through the back panel. You also have the option to mount an extra active fan on top of the heat sink.
  • 2 x eSATA - Fast & fiexible: eSATA is a new standard for external storage devices. With an external data transfer rate of up to 3 Gb/s no other external data transfer solution can compete with speed and ease of use.  PCI-E 2.0 with CrossFire: New Generation PCI-E 2.0 X16 slot,  2 x PCI-E X16 for the latest dual graphics technologies., CrossFire™, providing the ultimate visual experience. 1 x additional PCI-E X16 slot (X4 bandwidth)
