*1: The PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (PCIEX4_3) shares bandwith with PCIe 2.0 x1 and M.2 slot. The default setting is Auto Mode, which automatically optimizes the system bandwidth. If you install a PCIe 2.0 x4 device, the system will automatically detect and disable PCIe 2.0 x1 and M.2 slot.
*2: The PCIe 2.0 x1 slots (PCIEX1_1/2/3) will be disabled when PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (PCIEX4_3 ) operates under x4 speed or M.2 mode.
*3: The supported functions depends on the CPU installed.
*4: These SATA ports are for data hard drivers only. ATAPI devices are not supported.
*5: 1 x USB2.0 ports at mid-board shares with ROG extension (ROG_EXT) port.
