Thermal Armor with Flow Valve Optimizes airflow to boost heat dissipation
More than just a cool military-styled cover, TUF Thermal Armor employs dual fans to provide boosted airflow for rapid cooling. Reversible-airflow technology blows dust up and away from the heatsink VRM, while the exclusive flow-valve design controls the heat-pipe's air contact — great for liquid-cooling setups!
Thermal Radar 2 Customized fan tuning, complete system cooling
Z97 Thermal Radar 2 now lets you control fans on ASUS graphics cards, as well your case fans! Multiple onboard sensors and the bundled thermistor cables let you monitor graphics card temperatures and other key components in real time, so you can adjust manually or optimize automatically with one click.
TUF ICe The total cooling commander
ASUS TUF engineering team have forged a brand-new microchip that delivers incredibly precise temperature monitoring and fan controls.
With the TUF ICe, you can be assured that monitoring of onboard temperature sensors and fan speeds is always ultra-accurate — whether you're adjusting settings manually or using the automatic one-click optimization.
TUF Components Certified for tough duty
Dust DefendersRepel the dust, expand the lifespan
TUF design protects back I/O ports, expansion and memory slots plus critical connectors from dust and particles that degrade system performance over time if left unchecked. With a filter to ensure the back I/O fan doesn't draw dust into the board, Dust Defenders guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer.
Server-grade Tests Systematically-tested stability
TUF is proud to be a leading total solution provider. That means we test more than just the product itself — we examine system durability as a whole. Our motherboards undergo extreme temperature variations (thermal shock), extensive Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) test and many whole-build server-grade stability tests — so you know that your TUF motherboard can be trusted in all conditions.
5 Years Warranty Guaranteed reliability
Each and every TUF motherboard is built with components certified for military use and undergoes serious server-level burn-in tests, including over 7,000 hours of compatibility checks with over 1,000 devices. TUF is forged solid for your confidence, which is why every board is covered by a 5-year warranty.
TUF ESD Guards Strong ESD protection for extended component lifespan
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. TUF ESD Guards are tested to standards that are up to 2X higher than industry standards, ensuring electrostatic discharges are properly grounded from all onboard connectivity — and that means greater component longevity.
Keyboard and mouse connectors:Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes.
USB 3.0/2.0 connectors:On-circuit transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes and capacitor protection for surface-mount and dual-inline packages.
