  AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology
M2N-MX supports AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology, which monitors
system operation and automatically adjusts CPU voltage and frequency
for a cool and quiet environment.
   AMD Socket AM2
Supports AMD Socket AM2 Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 / Sempron
The motherboard supports AMD socket AM2 single-core Athlon 64/ Sempron and
dual-core Athlon 64 X2/ Athlon 64 FX processors with 2MB / 1MB / 512KB L2
cache, which is based on 64-bit architecture. It features 2000 / 1600 MT/s
HyperTransport Bus, dual-channel un-buffered DDR2 800 memory support and AMD Cool
'n' Quiet! Technology.

 Dual-Channel DDR2 800
DDR2 is the next generation memory technology to replace the current DDR.
With the highest speed up to 800MHz, DDR2 memory provides great
performance for 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications.

 PCI Express Architecture
PCI Express is the latest I/O interconnect technology that will replace the existing PCI.
With a bus bandwidth 4 times higher than that of AGP 8X interface, PCI Express x16 bus
performs much better in applications such as 3D gaming.
 Serial ATA 3Gb/s
This motherboard supports next-generation SATA hard drives based on the new SATA
3Gb/s storage specification. The onboard NVIDIA nForce 430 MCP southbridge allows
RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1, and RAID 5 configurations for four SATA connectors.

  Gigbit LAN
NVIDIA Gb LAN controller delivers transfer speeds up to ten times faster than
conventional 10/100 Ethernet connections. Gigabit LAN is the networking standard for the
early future and is ideal for handling large amounts of data such as video, audio, and

  ASUS EZ Flash 2
EZ Flash 2 is a user-friendly BIOS update utility. Simply press the pre-defined hotkey to
launch this tool and update BIOS from a USB flash disk before entering the OS. You can
update your BIOS only in a few clicks without preparing an additional floppy diskette or
using an OS-based flash utility.
  ASUS Q-Fan
ASUS Q-Fan technology intelligently adjusts CPU fan speeds according to system loading
to ensure quiet, cool and efficient operation.

  C.P.R.(CPU Parameter Recall)
When the system hangs due to overclocking failure, there is no need to open the case to
clear CMOS data. Just simply restart the system, the BIOS would show the previous
setting and then users can amend the CPU setting again.
The motherboard and its packaging comply with the European Union's
Restriction on the use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS). This is in line with
the ASUS vision of creating environment-friendly and recyclable products
and packaging to safeguard consumers' health while minimizing the impact on the
