Specifications

TUF /tΛf/, stands for The Ultimate Force.

The TUF series delivers a “tough” image. With the unique design & high quality components (military-standard), TUF series is born for pursuing the preeminent stability, all-round compatibility, and extreme durability

"Ultimate COOL!" Thermal Solution

Thermal Armor

Total Airflow-Boosting Heat Dissipation
New generation Thermal Armor boosts cooling with dual turbo fans, enhancing the original TUF thermal design and helping direct hot air away from components and the motherboard via smart shunt funneling. It covers the entire board with more powerful airflow, and uses special heat pipes to expedite thermal removal and make sure temperatures stay low. The dedicated I/O cover fan draws additional cold air in and expels even more heat for improved stability, plus new Thermal Armor comes with special convection holes in the PCB to facilitate underside airflow. It now sports a cool military-themed style, perfect for case modders.

Thermal Radar

Real Time Temp Detection and Heat Removal
Thermal Radar monitors temperatures in critical parts of the board, automatically adjusting fan speeds for better system stability. Fan Overtime keeps fans working in critical minutes post shutdown to extend component lifespan, drop ping temperatures by 7?C in just ten minutes after the computer turns off. New Fan Off consists of a switch that disables fans should temperatures drop  below a manually or automatically set level for effective power consumption.

"Safe & Stable!" Guardian Angel

Dust Defender

Repel the Dust, Expand the Lifespan
Dust particles and environmental contamination present a constant hazard to the optimal functioning of slots and connectors. Build up on contact points within slots compromises data transfer over time, negating the benefits of expensive and critical components such as graphics cards. Custom TUF design keeps this in mind with special shields that resist particulate entry, effectively extending slot and connector lifespan while promoting better performance.

ESD Guards

Unique protection of motherboard components from unexpected electrostatic discharges (ESD)
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly and its damaging effects is often underestimated. Exclusive ASUS anti-static chip, a protective circuit design, and the I/O shield provides four times better protection to extend component lifespan.


"TUF ENGINE!" Power Design

New DIGI+ Power Control

Leading digital power control solution with the best quality
New DIGI+ Power Control include multiple digital voltage controllers, allowing ultra-precise modulation and tuning for CPU, iGPU, and DRAM. This innovative and industry-leading ASUS technology provides an extremely accurate voltage tuning for better efficiency, stability, and performance. With the next generation Intel®VRD 12.5 future power design, CPU wattage can be decreased by half, creating a cooler and quieter PC. This innovation of industry-leading ASUS technology provides the smartest control for better power saving scenarios.

A greet product

Reviewed by ml2010052219 at @ 07:33 AM Jul 26, 2012

I wanted a solid motherboard that will last for a few upgrades.
I didn't do any overclocking but it look VERY easy to do with this board.
Never saw a bios like that before. Even a computer dummy could get it to work.
