ASUS, the world’s leading producer of motherboards, has unveiled its new Marine Cool concept motherboard. Eschewing traditional materials, this motherboard boasts a revolutionary technologyâ€"dubbed the Ceramic-Metal Thermal Moduleâ€"that utilizes two different materials (ceramics and metals) to double cooling efficiency and thus allow it to work even in the most demanding of usage environments like high humidity and heat. Sporting a color scheme with gun-metal gray and metallic military-green highlights, together with a heatsink styled after a rugged military armored vehicle (symbolizing sturdiness and reliability), the overall design exudes a feeling of military-grade technology and reliability. Additionally, this motherboard features Onboard UPSâ€"a built-in polymer battery for extra backup power and a server-standard Failover Memory design to help sustain system boot-up.
Aerospace-grade Thermal Dissipating Technology

The ASUS Marine Cool motherboard features a unique design that incorporates advanced thermal innovations in the utilization of ceramics and metals. On the front of the motherboard, a metal heatpipe module provides exceptional heat transference and dissipation for core components. Located on the back of the motherboard and set flush with the PCB, the Ceramic Backplate makes full use of a revolutionary micro-porous ceramic technology to provide a larger surface areaâ€"helping to effectively convey heat from the motherboard PCB and deliver highly effective heat dissipation. Together, this revolutionary thermal design is able to improve thermal efficiency by up to 2 times!

Onboard UPS for Sustained Power and Protection

The Marine Cool motherboard also features Onboard UPSâ€"a built-in polymer battery that serves as an extra backup power supply that activates when a power failure is detected. This helps to avert damage dealt to onboard components, loss of critical files and data corruption due to inconsistent and fluctuating power caused during unexpected blackouts.

Failover Memory

To provide even further support for operation sustainability, the server-standard Failover Memory design on the Marine Cool motherboard utilizes built-in memory to help continue system boot-up in the event of errors to add-on memory. When the PC is switched on, Failover Memory guarantees that the system will boot, regardless of incompatible or faulty memory.

So wait, it has onboard memory that will force a system boot up even if the regular memory is screwed. Would this totally messup your OS?

Not at all. Its like backup memory. The normal memory gets deleted after every boot anyways.

It's LGA 775 and who would put a laptop socket onto a full-atx mobo?

Thats not how I read the article. Memory not as in stored memory space but as in the memory the computer uses to do its task with. It basically reads that if this memory is giving errors as in a bad stick of ram it will still boot or force a boot with help from its onboard memory. Atleast thats how I read it.

no idea.. it's been done before when core 1 was out.. its for niche applications... like someone who carries around a desktop pc and bangs it around a lot

im doubting this is an enthusiast board.. why not just buy a ups if its just sitting at ur house lol

i think its called the marine because its sort of a display of what type of **** they could sell to the military

kinda like panasonic toughbook etc
