By unlocking the unused cores, overall system performance becomes greatly enhanced, as well as far more efficient. The CPU Level Up technology allows a user to overclock a CPU to match the specs of a higher CPU. This eliminates the extra cost that comes with upgrading a CPU. The Fan Xpert technology lets a user adjust the speed of the fan depending on the surrounding environment, creating a perfect solution to keep a PC cool and quiet. The M4A87TD EVO also has a separate version called the M4A87TD/USB3. It has the same specs, except that it features USB 3.0 support. When compared to another Asus motherboard, the M4A77TD Pro, the M4A87TD EVO has some advantages.
