The Asus M4A89TD PRO/USB3 is a middle-end motherboard. It is designed to house the components of a PC. It features USB 3.0 support, Turbo Key II technology, and a heat pipe solution. The USB 3.0 support gives the motherboard a wide variety of new devices to be compatible with. It is ten times as fast as USB 2.0, and also supports all USB 2.0 devices as well as new USB 3.0 devices. The Turbo Key II technology allows a user to press a switch that elevates the CPU to a higher state, while at the same time remaining stable. This enhances the performance of the computer. The heat pipe solution of the motherboard cools it using a highly efficient heat exchange process. This eliminates the need for a fan, which gets rid of most of the computer's noise. When compared to another Asus motherboard, the Crosshair IV Formula, the M4A89TD PRO/USB3 has some slight advantages because of technologies the Crosshair IV Formula lacks, such as a noise filter.

Features
  • Two USB 3.0 ports
  • Turbo Key II technology
  • Heat pipe solution
  • Noise Filter
  • Twelve USB 2.0 ports
  • AM3 Socket
  • Supports AMD Phenom II/Athlon II/Sempron CPUs
  • Four DIMM slots
  • Supports up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM
  • AMD Cool'n'Quiet technology

What is the 3-pin PWR_FAN on the M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 use for? A third chassis fan or just for those Power Supplies that have such an interface to monitor the PS?
