    COMPREHENSIVE AI TUNING SUITE

    Get the most out of your build with the ASUS AI Overclocking suite by automatically profiling your CPU and cooling system to predict optimal voltage and frequency settings. Accessible via the AI Suite software in Windows or directly through the UEFI, this intuitive AI Overclocking user interface enables users of all levels to optimise their setup how they see fit with a range of customizable settings for seasoned overclockers, or a simple auto-tuning option is available for beginners.

    DESIGNED BY EXPERTS

    At the heart of AI Overclocking is an algorithm developed by a mixture of ROG research and development engineers and world-renowned overclockers to ensure the tool is suitable for users of all levels.

    Predictive algorithm

    PREDICTIVE EDGE

    The AI Overclocking algorithm automatically analyses your CPU and cooling system to predict the optimal setting for your system. The software then uses these settings to automatically guide the clocking process, balancing frequency and voltage.

    Real Time Adjustments

    REAL-TIME ADJUSTMENTS

    The software monitors workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw every minute and it makes real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.

    OVERCLOCKING MADE EASIER

    With a simple click ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smarter, it dynamically optimises essential aspects of your system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.

    CPU PERFORMANCE BOOST

    The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is an intelligent system-tuning utility that can automatically fine-tune voltages, monitor system statistics, and adjust overclocking parameters for optimal performance.

    YOUR MOTHERBOARD, YOUR WAY

    A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips and devices connected to the onboard RGB headers - and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
