BUILT FOR NON STOP ACTION
ASUS Expedition: Ready for non-stop battle
ASUS Expedition motherboards are made for non-stop action, engineered with non-stop durability to prevent damage from moisture, corrosion and overvoltages — for immense longevity. We even test them to the limits, with 144 hour of diskless-system tests and extensive checks for compatibility with top games and over 100 gaming peripherals. 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!
NON STOP DURABILITY
Exceptional stability and protection
ASUS Expedition motherboards offer an exclusive package of unbeatable hardware and features to ensure non-stop durability, including an anti-moisture coating, gold-plated PCIe® x16 slot and LAN connector, USBGuard protection for 120%-higher overvoltage toleration, and exclusive 5X Protection III for absolute reliability.
100% protection against moisture and corrosion
This innovative moisture-resistant coating provides 100% motherboard protection, and combats the higher levels of humidity that build up in densely-populated environments, such as internet cafes, libraries and data centers. It even minimizes internal corrosion by preventing the adhesion and migration of moisture — prolonging the life of your Expedition motherboard.
Gold-plated PCIe x16 and LAN design
Up to 6X-stronger durability
ASUS Expedition motherboards are equipped with a premium 30-micron-thick gold-plated LAN connector, and a 15-micron-thick gold-plated PCIe x16 port to protect your investment against corrosion, and improving durability and reliability.
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.
* USBGuard supports USB2.0 device only
Protect Your Graphics Card Investment
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 to integrate the slot with fortifying metal support for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
Water pump header
EX-A320M-GAMING motherboard has an integrated water-pump header that offers full control over either PWM or DC water pumps, so it's perfect for ready-made, self-contained or custom cooling setups. The header supports a maximum current of up to 3A, so you can equip any popular water-cooling solution — enabling you to dissipate heat far more efficiently than with a traditional air-cooled system!
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.
Pumped-up throughput. 2.5X higher surge tolerance.
ASUS LANGuard is hardware-level networking protection that employs signal-coupling technology and premium anti-EMI surface-mounted capacitors ensuring a more reliable connection and better throughput, plus electrostatically-guarded and surge-protected components for greater tolerance to static electricity and improved protection against surges.
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 EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
