SafeSlot Prime X299-A PCIe Lanes
PROTECT YOUR GRAPHICS CARD INVESTMENT
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
