The PC industry is teeming with hype. New products and technologies arrive in a flurry of facts and figures extolling their virtues--and often over-selling their benefits. The ASUS Straight Edge podcast cuts through the marketing to focus on what really matters to users. We’re here to answer your questions and bring you the straight story on new tech.

Hosts Geoff Gasior and Rajinder Gill have a combined 25 years of experience in the industry. A PC user from an early age, Geoff spent 15 years writing about technology and reviewing hardware for The Tech Report before joining ASUS. Rajinder has been a PC enthusiast for decades; he got his start in the industry writing reviews for AnandTech before moving to ASUS. We’re both passionate about PCs and the technology behind them, and we’ll be joined by guests who can contribute their own unique insights.

Over the next few months, we’ll tackle interesting tech topics on a podcast hosted right here on OCN. To kick things off, the first episode will cover Skylake and the Z170 platform – including some of your questions. Whether you want to know about features, overclocking, setup, or anything else, please post your questions below. We’ll aim to answer as many as we can!

It would be nice to include detailed information on the chokes and MOSFETS on the Z170 Board thumb.gif

It would also be nice to hear about the safty functions on the board.
Does it clock down CPU when either VRM or CPU overheats.

Does it have duall BIOS, can the board be saved if I crashed my BIOS, using a USB drive.

Thanks

Can ASUS T-Topology be better explained to the layman, and how much benefit is there for it on this platform?


Side question: ASUS once a long time ago, entered the 3D market with ASUS VR-100 - any current plans to offer a solution to compete with new VR headsets / technologies?

I'm going to leave this here as a reference point if we get into VRM discussion. Have to be honest, if you look at those ramps, there isn't much to discuss smile.gif

With the low cost of MicroSD cards these days has anyone thought of putting a slot on the back of a motherboard maybe? Some claim read speeds *up to* 80MBs it wouldn't be ideal for games per se...but it would be crazy tiny and seemingly easy to do.
