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
TUF Thermal Armor
Total Airflow-Boosting Heat Dissipation The TUF Thermal Armor is the world’s first ever thermal design for the entire motherboard, not just for select critical areas. It safeguards the system against hot air generated by connected cards and components, keeping temps down. With its sophisticated and agile integrated shunt design, the Thermal Armor improves cool air circulation, directing it towards every important part for a complete motherboard cool down. It effectively conducts hot air away and out of the case through special airflow channels, contributing to enhanced system stability and extending component lifespan.
TUF Thermal Radar
Real Time Temp Detection and Heat Removal The TUF Thermal Radar monitors temps in critical parts of the motherboard in real time, automatically adjusting fan speeds to make sure the system maintains high stability without overheating. It consists of multiple sensors for various components on the motherboard, giving users the ability to monitor each one individually. The Thermal Radar automatically calculates ideal fan speeds based on different parameters select ed by users for each component, keeping everything cooler and longer lasting.
"TUF ENGINE!" Power Design
Herald the Arrival of a New Digital Power Design Era The new ASUS DIGI+ VRM design upgrades motherboard power delivery to a digital standard. The 8+2 digital architecture provides the highest power efficiency, generating less heat to enhance longer component lifespan and ensure minimal powerloss. With ASUS DIGI+ VRM, users can easily adjust power phase performance, enabling new PWM voltage and frequency modulation controls. Digital 8+2 power phase design also expands the modulation spectrum for improved stability and lower VRM switching noise by dynamically detecting system load, empowering users with superior flexibility and perfect precision to ensure optimized performance, extreme system stability, and greater power efficiency.
E.S.P. Efficient Switching Power Design
Optimal power efficiency for key components Exclusively for this motherboard, the switching power design is provided not only for the CPU and memory, but also for other key components such as graphics cards, LAN and USB 3.0. E.S.P. dramatically improves system efficiency and reduces heat generation.
TUF Components (Alloy Choke, Cap. & MOSFET; Certified by Military-standard)
Certified for Tough Duty Get rugged performance even in the most challenging conditions with robust TUF chokes, solid capacitors, and MOSFETs--certified through third-party, military-grade testing. TUF Chokes, also known as the “Alloy Choke”, is a made of a compound of various types of metal instead standard iron, enables the support of up to a massive 40A of rated current, 25% higher than conventional component. Furthermore, the single piece packaing also elimates the emission of virbation noise, delivering superb charactoristics as well as durability under extreme conditions. > Learn more on test report

I really don't have too much to say about this board, if you don't plan on going passed dual SLI, this card can offer you every thing you need and allow expansion for more. While I found the thermal to be a little silly it does add a nice aesthetic and can be a little annoying at times when installing some cards in the expansions slots(not hard though).
The new graphical bios is nice, you can use the mouse now and it is easy to use even for a new user. The thermal shield did block the installation of a fan controller on the very first PCI slot of the case (there is no pci slot on the motherboard that corresponds to the first PCI slot of the case). However, with some filing, I was able to get my fan controller to fit. It was only a few millimeters of a screw that I had to file off. It was pushing against the protruding cover of the I/O area.
Great motherboard, easy to install and includes everything needed besides a usb 3.0 header. Installed in 5 minutes and looks amazing in your case especially if you are in to the sleek or military look.
Very good motherboard but i just have to say 2 thing about this one. One thing is my fan connector on the motherboard are not made correctly...it dont fit perfectly so the plastic broke a little bit...and this is on every connector :(. Second thing is the overclock, i overclocked my cpu and tested on prime95. Everything was ok for 2 week but one day, the computer reboot on the start and say: Overclock failed. Thats weird, it came 2 week after my test and everything lol...
If you're looking for a bomb-proof motherboard with lots of control, look no further. Confidence inspiring stability. Don't let the thermal armour gimmick throw you off - the TUF components are worth their weight in gold. Remove the shroud and just make sure you have decent airflow in your case.
