When the discrete graphics card is not required, power consumption goes automatically down to near zero, making the system more environmentally-friendly. For users searching for perfection, LucidLogix Virtu MVP provides great graphical performance and the best flexibility and efficiency.
DIGI+ Power Control: Digital Power Design for the CPU and iGPU
ASUS motherboards using the Intel® H77 chipset employ precise digital voltage regulation for the CPU, called DIGI+ VRM (Voltage Regulation Modules) digital power design. The CPU voltage and VRM frequency are adjusted via either carefully developed automated modes, or by using user-defined profiles. The effect is that DIGI+ VRM technology ensures greater energy efficiency and the best possible PC stability. Boosted by world-renowned ASUS quality, it creates an ideal computing platform for a diverse range of applications, from gaming to multimedia or office work and heavy multitasking. Engineered and tested to assure unmitigated performance, ASUS H77 boards with DIGI+ VRM remain efficient and stability, for reliable application in every scenario. Direct DIGI to DIGI Power Delivery Yeilds Greater Efficiency ASUS DIGI+ VRM design is an innovative, industry-leading technology that fully integrates Intel® VRD12 specifications at a wholly native level, reacting faster than ever to voltages change demands requested via digital signal from the CPU. This greatly enhances power efficiency and reliability beyond the limits of old, analog designs.
Precise Tuning, and Control of the CPU and iGPU Voltages Voltage Regulation Modules, or VRMs, are among the most essential motherboard components. They supply the ever changing voltage and power demanded by the CPU, requiring a good motherboard VRM design to intelligently and accurately detect real-time CPU power draw to provide precise power accordingly. ASUS DIGI+ VRM design provides the most precise tuning and control of CPU and its processor graphics (iGPU) voltages, with digital VRM frequency and power phase control offering superior flexibility, more reliability and better efficiency.
T.Probe: Automatic Realtime Analysis for Thermal Balance and Ultimate PC Stability The digital power architecture delivers intelligently adjusting load across all the phases, thanks to VRM temperature analysis and control from ASUS exclusive T.Probe. T. Probe maintains a cool average temperature by actively regulating the power load across the DIGI+ VRM array. This dramatically reduces hot spots, increasing system life and stability.

Working fine so far. I wish it had a separate mouse and keyboard port rather then a combined, but not a big deal if you have a usb version of either. Bought it because it fit my needs and had PCI ports.
The mail in rebate is a pain, do not use this as a reason for buying it.
