Utilized the Intel® X48 express chipset from Intel®, the X48T-A supports 1600 MHz front side bus and delivers 45nm Intel® Core™2 family processing power. In particular, the motherboard has the ability to set DDR3 modules to automatically start up a system in an overclocking state using two profiles that are available in the SPD of the modules. When it working with XMP compatible memory modules, users get optimized performance up to DDR3 1600 and keep system stability simultaneously without touching anything, otherwise runs a normal mode using non-XMP memory modules. It is really a simple but intelligent solution for end users to tune up their PC's performance.

Furthermore, it features 2 PCI Express 2.0 X16 slots (running at full X16 bandwidth) for ATI CrossFireTM X technology, providing better multi-GPU support than before. Moreover X48T-A is equipped with the revolutionary ECS M.I.B. (Motherboard Intelligent BIOS) overclocking utility for performance users to get extra benefit through a flexible tweaking tool. The utility integrated all the overclocking functions into one page. It provides the most intelligent and convenient way to adjust the clock/ voltage settings of CPU and memory.
