5X Protection III

Prime 200 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.

SafeSlot Core

Fortified PCIe with solid soldering – 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.

LANGuard

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 to ensure 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.

Overvoltage Protection

World-class circuit-protecting power design – 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+ VRM

Precision control for stable power – ASUS-exclusive DIGI+ VRM intelligently delivers power to the processor based on real-time demands, reducing energy waste and improving system stability.

DRAM Overcurrent Protection

Short-circuit damage prevention – Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.

Stainless-Steel Back I/O

3x corrosion-resistance for greater durability – Corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's three times longer than ordinary panels.

ESD Guards

Electrostatic discharge protection – ASUS ESD Guards prevent damage from electrostatic discharge, up to +/- 10kV for air discharge and +/- 6kV for contact discharge, arranged in an active-protective-circuit design that prolongs the life of components.

Proven Compatibility

Tested to be compatible with 1,000+ CPUs, DDR4 memory modules, graphics cards and more.

Having the freedom to pick and choose the parts that go into your machine is at the heart of PC DIY.
