ASUS Striker Extreme Motherboard Incorporates Unique Features for Both Easy DIY and Stylish Gaming

ASUSTeK Computer introduced the Striker Extreme motherboard, which are specifically designed to simplify the DIY process and add style to gaming systems.

As the newest member of the popular Republic of Gamers (ROG) series, the nForce 680i SLI-based Striker Extreme supports Intel Quad-Core Processor and Nvidia's Quad-SLI technology, and is ready for the new 1,333MHz FSB specification. Made for gamers and tweakers, the ASUS motherboard provides the power needed for smooth video and extreme performance.

LCD Poster ? Easy System Tweaking with Style

LCD Poster is an excellent feature for system tuning and upgrades. Most hardcore users and engineers install a debug card, which displays a two-digit code that enables them to recognize which part of the system is responsible for hanging the system during boot-up.

LCD Poster, located at the back I/O, displays the names of each boot-process instead of using codes. When system hangs due to faulty connection or configuration, the LCD Poster will freeze on the displayed process name that caused the hang up, allowing users to know exactly what needs to be fixed.

EL I/O and Onboard LED ? Easy connection even in the dark

With LAN parties and e-sport tournaments growing in popularity, many gamers and tweakers are finding out that assembling and fine-tuning their computers in the dark environments are quite a hassle.

The Striker Extreme incorporated EL I/O, which simplifies connecting devices by lighting up the back I/O panel for convenient connection in dark environments, meaning no more jamming devices into the wrong connectors. Onboard LED offers strategically placed LEDs to provide illumination to motherboard labels. Users can turn on the LEDs from a switch on the back I/O. This switch also cuts all other circuits on the motherboard except the LEDs to ensure safety during system tweaking. Besides allowing easy DIY, the two features also jazz up a system with cool lightings.

Onboard Switch ? Turn system on/off, reset and clear CMOS with 1 push of a button A power user typically builds a system outside of the case. Hence, he needs to short the front panel pins to power up or restart the system, and switch jumpers and pop the battery to clear CMOS. With the Striker Extreme, doing all that is now just a push on the button.

SupremeFX ? Great Sound

The SupremeFX audio card, with 24bit/192kHz sampling in all surround channels, provides high-quality audio whether it's through headphones or 7.1 surround sound speakers. The bundled array microphone, which comes with background noise filter that detects repetitive and stationary noises (non-voice signals) like computer fans and air conditioners, then eliminates them in the incoming audio stream while recording.

Bundle 3D Games, 3DMark 06 Advanced Edition, Kaspersky Anti-Virus

Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter supports the advanced physics effects and is currently one of the most popular games.

3DMark is the most popular and authoritative 3D benchmark application used by professionals. 3DMark06 is the latest version in the popular 3DMark series, including advanced SM2.0 and HDR/SM3.0 Shader graphics tests and now including single, multiple core and multiple processor CPU tests.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal offers premium antivirus protection for individual users and home offices. It is based on advanced antivirus technologies. The product incorporates the Kaspersky Anti-Virus engine, which is renowned for malicious program detection rates that are among the industry's highest.
