Advantages of DirectCU II and Asus RoG Motherboard

What would the advantage be of running a DirectCU II in a Republic of Gamers motherboard? I have heard there is an advantage. I was thinking gtx 760 and Maximus VII Ranger.

  1. Their is none, its all marketing. Your Asus card is going to perform the same no matter what motherboard its put onto.

    Quite simply $100 is all you need to spend on a motherboard, something like this will cater for any reasonable need you could have of one.

  2. All marketing you say - I heard something about VGA Hotwire, supported only by rog motherboards and directcu/rog coolers - How does that work? And what if i were to step up to a 780 - would it matter? I know they have got some kind of hidden feature for this combo, just dont quite know what it is and if it is worth it.

    VGA hotwire is a feature only on ROG boards, but doesnt require an ASUS card.

    This is how it works.

    Remember when I said "reasonable need" in my last post?

    Upgrading to a 780 will get you a 780's performance, which is a fair bit stronger than a 760. If your wondering how it will affect you in ways other than straight up performance, it wont.
    It really is just marketing. There is a reason why you have heard of this "ROG advantage" but arent able to actually quantify what it is.
  4. I know its a bit offtopic, but would pairing up msi gaming gpu and msi gaming motherboard have any features like vga hotwire on asus board?

    Yes but i was talking about the msi stuff, if it has some kind of gaming app that connects the motherboard and the graphics card in a certain way - like Roccat Talk. More gaming features of you have from the same brand.

    It might all be marketing, but what is it then? I was asking if they had something equivalent, and not if it was just marketing - also thanks for taking for time helping me even though the question was solved.
