    CPU VRM area: 6+2 Digital Power phase
    ASUS use taiwan solid capacitors and a 6+2 Digital phase power design on this board

    Asus used High Quality Mosfets. Two Philips 5030AL MOSFETs act on the low-side, and a single 7030AL 70A is used as the high-side. These MOSFETs have very low RDS(ON) which means they will have lower temperature as they are switching on and off.

    Those Logic Mosfets using Level N-channel enhancement mode Field-Effect Transistor, which result High efficiency due to low switching and conduction losses.

    MLCC inductor used a row of Swiss R68 TRIO closed inductance.

    Asus F2A85-V Pro board used single Bios chip: Winbond 25064FVA1G-UEFI ROM 64MB

    Asus DirectKey: you can easily enter the BIOS automatically when the PC is on standby power with a press of a button. It saves you time during boot-up from having to repeatedly press the DEL key.

    Asus Bios FlashBack:
    Just plug in a USB flash drive containing the BIOS file, and press the BIOS Flashback button for 3 seconds with the power supply connected. The UEFI BIOS will then automatically update without requiring further interaction. [Must be Fat32 format] - ASUS ROG lab exclusive: USB BIOS Flashback - YouTube
