Gamer's Guardian for
While you protect your back in the game, A88X-GAMER protects all sides in the real world. Great motherboard design is all in the detail, which is why ASUS engineers kitted out A88X-GAMER with loads of brilliant protective features. Individually they're tough, together they're unstoppable.
10k black metallic capacitors
Exceptionally high-quality Japanese-made (Nichicon GT series) solid-state capacitors offer 20%-greater temperature endurance and lifespans that are up to five times (5X) longer that generic equivalents.
A88X-GAMER DIGI+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times!
DRAM overcurrent protection
A88X-GAMER's connection ports and DRAM are protected against overcurrent and short-circuit damage by onboard resettable fuses, extending your motherboard's life.

With ASUS ESD Guards your A88X-GAMER is actively protected against sudden electrostatic discharge (ESD), meaning the components will last much longer — and you get protection that's up to twice as resilient as industry standards! ESD Guards include:
Keyboard and mouse connectors:
Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes.
Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect D-Sub functionality.
USB 3/2.0 connectors:
On-circuit transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes and capacitor protection for surface-mount and dual-inline packages.
ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN circuit bolstered by an anti-surge LAN connector that increases protection against extreme events, such as lightning strikes.
Capacitor protection on both front and back audio-output circuits.
