ECO Center Pro

ECO Center Pro let’s you cut the power 100% to devices.

3 power saving preset modes
With one click turn on all saving
Turn fans on/off
Turn LEDs on/off
Turn peripherals ports on/off
Turn PCI slots on/off
Save to BIOS and make default

ECO Mode

ECO mode is the default mode to save energy. It enables all of the motherboards functions and only turns off all LEDs and PCI slots.

Lounge Mode

For multimedia solutions to decode/encode audio & video at full performance. Lounge mode lowers fan speed for a mode quiet environment, disables LEDs & LAN.

Server Mode

A mode for personal cloud service or servers for small business. Server mode lowers CPU power consumption, fan speed, turns LEDs, audio & video functionality off.

ECO button

Efficiency at your control; pressing the ECO button starts saving power immediately.

Ease of use with a button in hardware, BIOS and software design for more conveniece.
