Dual Intelligent Processors 3 with New DIGI+ Power Control
Intelligent Processors 3 with New DIGI+ Power Control The world’s
first Dual Intelligent Processors from ASUS pioneered twin onboard chips - TPU
(TurboV Processing Unit) and EPU (Energy Processing Unit). Third generation Dual
Intelligent Processors with New DIGI+ Power Control include three digital
voltage controllers, allowing ultra-precise DRAM tuning in addition to
ultra-precise CPU voltage control. This evolution of innovative and
industry-leading ASUS technology provides super-accurate voltage tuning for
better efficiency, stability and performance.
New DIGI+ Power Control
Digital Power Control for both CPU and DRAM ASUS X79 motherboards
include New DIGI+ Power Control with three digital voltage controllers,
including all-new DRAM controllers that offers ultra-precise memory tuning in
addition to ultra-precise CPU voltage control. This evolution of innovative,
industry-leading ASUS technology provides the best in class control for better
efficiency, stability and performance.
Best in class power
efficiency and stability Two critical components work perfectly
together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with
ultra-fast sensing and response to efficiently deliver the right level of power
on demand. Accurate power reduces wasteful voltage imprecision, and provides
more a stable CPU and memory setup.
Increased CPU and DRAM overclocking range With programmable
digital controllers onboard, users can adjust CPU and DRAM voltage and VRM
switching frequencies for various overclocking scenarios. New DRAM tuning
possibilities make the most of DDR3 memory for better performance with VCCSA
load line calibration and 30% more DRAM current capacity. Dual digital voltage
controllers provide two separate outputs for AB and CD memory channels
respectively. Thanks to a slew of power options teamed with an extensive and
intuitive UEFI BIOS, overclocking very large memory setups is no more difficult
than mainstream motherboards.
(system agent voltage) includes a DRAM controller. Now ASUS CPU power provides
more options for VCCSA to facilitate extreme DRAM overclocking.
DIMM Design - X79 Done Right Support for up to 64GB of system memory
with an 8-DIMM design on ASUS X79 motherboards provides the capacity for users
to make full use of modern 64-bit software, ideal for rendering detailed images
or manipulating large files without the bottlenecks of conventional storage. It
also allows users to set up big RAM disks and speed up frequently accessed
programs, minimizing the impact of storage transfer delays while maximizing user
ASUS Exclusive Features
ASUS SSD Caching
3X faster performance at a click SSD Caching from ASUS is
easier than ever. At 3X faster, this feature boosts system performance by using
an installed SSD with no capacity limitations as a cache for frequently accessed
data. Harness a combination of SSD-like performance and response and hard drive
capacity with just one click, no rebooting needed and instant activation for
complete ease of use, and even prevent data loss with included backup
Diverse Bluetooth Enjoyment, a New Technology
Lifestyle Onboard Bluetooth wireless design enables smart
connectivity to Bluetooth devices with no additional adapter. ASUS BT GO!
includes seven special functions so users can sync and transfer files between PC
and mobile devices, and use them as a remote control to play music and even
overclock their PC. All are fully accessible through the exclusive user friendly

USB BIOS Flashback
Easy, worry-free USB BIOS Flashback USB BIOS Flashback
offers the most convenient way to flash the BIOS ever! It allows overclockers to
try new UEFI BIOS versions easily, without even entering their existing BIOS or
operating system. It even works without key components such as the CPU and
memory installed. Just plug in any USB storage and push the dedicated button for
3 seconds. The UEFI BIOS is automatically flashed using ATX standby power.
Worry-free updating for the ultimate convenience!
Customizable speeds with independent fan
control Hardware-level ASUS Fan Xpert+ allows users to independently
adjust both CPU and case fan speeds with multiple dedicated controllers based on
different ambient temperatures, climate conditions and system loads. Built-in
profiles offer flexible automatic and manual fan speed controls to achieve a
quiet and cool computing environment.

I had the same problem as Marius_S, I ordered the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 LGA2011 and it's too large with RAM that is to high like the "Corsair Vengeance Black CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10".
I had to switch back to the Noctua NH-U12P and install it with the screws in the Noctua NH-D14 kit. I still had to move the fan 1/4 of an inch up to make room for the 2 sims close to the heatsink. Lucky I have a big case!
I have had the P9x79 for over 6 months now, I still love it! ASUS is still doing a great job of BIOS/driver updates. boots super fast in W8 as long as the settings in the BIOS are right and no disc inserted in my BDRw, takes less than 5 seconds befor it starts to load Windows, something to do with UEFI, I'm a little confused by it honestly, but its FAST is all I know... I love the smart fan feature, 6 fans controlled by software. The GUI in the BIOS is awesome too. decent onboard audio and Intel network cards are awesome!
