Asus X99-A II Intel X99 Motherboard

Asus MB_AS_X99AII

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview

Awaken the true performance with one click and pioneering OC socket, plus ASUS Aura and SafeSlot.




  • ASUS Aura – Features controllable RGB onboard lighting and 4-pin strip header that can be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.

  • SafeSlot – Reinvented, strengthened PCIe slot utilises a new insert-molding process to bind the slot to fortifying metal for superior retention and shearing resistance.

  • 5-Way Optimisation: Fan Xpert 4 – Elevates customised cooling to new heights, with the ability to detect PWM/DC fans on all headers, utilise high-amperage fans and control water-cooling pumps in software and UEFI.

  • 5-Way Optimisation: Turbo Core – Employs Intel’s latest per-core overclocking, allowing you to assign applications to specific processor cores for optimum application performance.

  • Next-gen connectivity – Great flexibility with on-board U.2 / M.2 slots that tap into 32Gbps of PCIe bandwidth and USB 3.1 Type-C.
