Audio Boost 2

Audio Boost 2 delivers optimal audio quality with the use of Creative Sound Blaster Cinema 2, so you can experience crystal clear sound and music through 8-channel HD Audio. With traditional onboard audio the signal is distorted by electromagnetic signals from the rest of the PCB. Audio Boost 2 acts like a dedicated soundcard by physically isolating the audio circuitry, which is separated by a red LED path. Less interference gives you a clear audio signal. Experience a heavy caliber audio experience with Direct Audio Power. A dedicated power input to Audio Boost 2 allows for a more powerful and stable power delivery, resulting in a more explosive and pure sound experience.

Sound Blaster Cinema 2

Creative Sound Blaster Cinema 2 delivers optimal surround sound with just stereo headphones or speakers. It enables you to clearly hear specific sounds in gaming environments.

EMI Shielding

To shield the audio core from Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) caused by other add-in cards the audio chip is protected by a high-grade EMI cover with backlight illumination.

Dual Headphone Amplifiers

The built-in dual headphone amplifier rewards your high quality headphone with studio level sound quality up to 600Ω delivered from your gaming PC. The GAMING motherboard is designed to be user-friendly, featuring front and rear audio outputs fueled by Audio Boost 2.

High Quality Audio Capacitors

With the use of professional Nichicon Japanese capacitors, designed for audio purposes, the GAMING motherboard provides the highest possible audio signal filtering. Capacitors help to deliver high fidelity crystal clear sound with exceptional acoustics and realism. It features acoustic series, lower tolerance, lower dielectric absorption, lower ESR, lower leakage current, and higher stability.

Golden Audio Connectors

With golden audio connectors you get optimal signal output with less chance of distortion. It gives up to 600Ω crystal clear sound with exceptional acoustics. Dedicated amplified output (red) optimized for studio-grade headgear. Optimal signal conductivity and will not wear over time.

USB Audio Power

It features high-quality external USB DACs where sound quality degrades as the motherboard is unable to deliver a perfect USB signal. USB Audio Power continuously delivers a stable 5V to the USB ports on motherboards, making sure you can continue to enjoy the crystal clear audio standard you expect.
USB audio power enhances USB audio quality. It provides stable 5V power and better signal transmission over USB.

Killer E2200 Game Networking

The Killer E2200 intelligent networking platform is built for maximum networking performance for online games and high-quality streaming media. Featuring Advanced Stream Detect, Killer E2200 automatically detects and accelerates game traffic ahead of other network traffic for smoother, stutter-free in-game performance and the competitive edge. With this automatic traffic prioritization, games and real-time chat get priority over low-level system chatter, giving you the lowest latency for game data on the most controllable network hardware available.
Through the detection and prioritization of gaming traffic you can finally fully utilize your network without fear of being kicked from an on-line game because of high ping. This enables true multi-tasking without manually enabling or disabling applications, updates and installations. Killer networking allows you to use your PC 24 hours a day.

SATA Express

The motherboard offers the next generation of high speed storage support through M.2 and SATA Express. M.2 and SATA Express transfer data through a PCIe 2.0 x2 interface with speeds of up to 10 Gb/s, making it 67% faster than SATA 3.0 solutions.
SATA Express with PCIe provides greater bandwidth for the latest generation SSDs.

Faster Storage Solutions with M.2

M.2 is the successor to mSATA, offering a 67% performance increase up to 10 Gb/s. M.2 is packed in a small form factor and is compatible with three different sizes to fit most storage solutions.

XSplit Gamecaster

XSplit Gamecaster lets you record your gaming moments and broadcast your live gameplay sessions to Twitch, YouTube, UStream, and more. It’s simple, user-friendly, and suitable for sharing your gameplay with friends, family or the world, or for capturing gaming moments, just for the heck of it. Add a webcam and show your game face, share your broadcast, draw attention whilst casting with in-game annotations, and organize and upload gaming moments.

SteamOS Support
