And for the ultimate audio, Expedition motherboards have Epic gaming audio to provide exhilarating non-stop gaming performance — and the best stability, reliability, and value for you!
Exceptional stability and protection
ASUS Expedition motherboards offer an exclusive package of unbeatable hardware and features to ensure non-stop durability, including a luminous anti-moisture coating, USBGuard protection for 120%-higher overvoltage toleration, and exclusive 5X Protection III for absolute reliability.
Protects against moisture and corrosion
An innovative moisture-resistant coating provides comprehensive protection to prolong the life of your Expedition motherboard. It combats the negative effects of high humidity often found in crowded environments — such as iCafé , data centers and libraries — and minimizes internal corrosion by preventing the adhesion and migration of moisture. The coating even has a luminous effect when viewed under ultraviolet light, letting you clearly see where it is applied.
USBGuard 120% higher overvoltage protection
Exclusive USBGuard technology detects voltage changes in real time, and has 120%-higher overvoltage tolerances than standard to ensure stable and reliable input voltages — minimizing the risk of damage, and protecting your equipment.
5X Protection III
ASUS EXPEDITION motherboards are engineered with industry-leading 5X Protection III, employing the finest components, excellent circuit design, and exacting standards to guarantee the quality and long-term durability of your motherboard. That means exceptional protection and stability for your build — thanks to decades of engineering experience from the world’s leading motherboard brand.
Fortified PCIe slot prevents damage
SafeSlot Core is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot. Featuring a fortified design that’s anchored to the motherboard by a special hook, Safeslot Core provides 1.6x stronger retention and 1.3x greater shearing resistance than standard expansion slots.
Strong ESD protection for extended component lifespan
ASUS ESD Guards prevent damage from electrostatic discharge, up to +/- 12kV for air discharge and +/-7kV for contact discharge, arranged in an active-protective-circuit design that prolongs the life of components.
Overvoltage Protection An exclusive circuit design with built-in voltage regulators to protect your chipset, connectivity ports, and audio codecs from damage caused by unexpected high-level voltages from unstable or inferior power supplies. DIGI+ Voltage-Regulator Module The ASUS-exclusive Digi+ VRM intelligently delivers power to the processor based on real-time demands, reducing energy waste and improving system stability. Stainless-Steel Back I/O Corrosion-resistant stainless steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that’s three times (3X) longer than ordinary panels.
Acclaimed UEFI BIOS
The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you’re a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the iCafe and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
