ASUS TUF made the world's first motherboard with an all-white printed-circuit board (PCB), and now SABERTOOTH Z170 S takes the arctic-camouflage concept even further by stenciling the military-inspired digital pattern directly onto the board! As unique as it is evocative of might, SABERTOOTH Z170 S' stunning new aesthetic envisions the future for your next battle-ready rig.
SABERTOOTH Z170 S is white through and through, and that includes the Q-LED indicator light. With a design inspired by an armored cockpit, see the power and act on the alerts, with a clear indication of five vital boot actions all cast in shimmering by a bright-white LED the perfect complement for your arctic-themed build!
A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel processors that allows overclocked base clock frequencies up to 400MHz*. This custom solution
works in tandem with the ASUS Turbo Processor Unit (TPU), to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control granting an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.
The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
ASUS TUF engineers have forged TUF ICe, a dedicated processor that monitors onboard temperature sensors and fan speeds for ultra-accurate cooling whether you're adjusting settings manually or using the automatic one-click optimization via Thermal Radar 2 and TUF Detective 2.
Thermal Radar 2 now has 11 fan connectors, the largest number in the industry, and is able to connect with TUF Detective 2 wirelessly for fan control via your smartphone or tablet. Moreover, multiple onboard sensors can let you monitor key components onboard in real time, so you can adjust manually or optimize automatically with one click.
You can also choose to optimize the whole system's fan setup with a single click. Based on the characteristics of each fan connected to your motherboard, all fan profiles can be quickly optimized.
Sabertooth Z170 S has customizable settings for each of its 11 fan headers, offering you maximum control over your build's cooling and quietness. You can even monitor, manage and individually name and control your system's fans to create your perfect balance between quietness, cooling and performance.
SABERTOOTH Z170 S Thermal Radar 2's fan management has been expanded you can control fans on ASUS graphics cards, as well as multiple case fans.
With thermal-status reports showing CPU and graphics cards zone temperature in real-time, your system fan control can be as precise as you like! Additional CPU thermal assessment gauges temperature rises with increasing voltage, providing a benchmark to judge your CPU cooler's performance.
Critical voltages, temperatures and fan speeds are recorded over time, so you can review your system's history and make informed judgments for improved operation.
DIGI+ Power control is one of the most essential motherboard designs, and TUF offers ultra-precise memory tuning in addition to extra-accurate CPU voltage control. Best in class power efficiency and stability reduces wasteful voltage discrepancies and provides a more stable CPU and memory setup.
A free companion app puts detailed system information and a user-friendly interface at your fingertips right on your smartphone or tablet. You're able to monitor key parameters, detect and diagnose errors and adjust your system operation with touchscreen ease wirelessly. Moreover, you can easily download and upgrade the latest BIOS version via the app. Your PC doesn't even need to be switched on for you to make use of the app!
You demand 24/7 durability, so we've delivered! TUF motherboards undergo the industry's most-punishing tests to ensure they're ready for permanent duty in all scenarios. In our development labs we heat them, chill them, bend them, shock them and drop them so you know that your TUF motherboard is certified for 24/7 durability!
ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN circuit bolstered by an anti-surge LAN connector that increases protection against extreme events, such as lightning strikes.
Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect HDMI and DP functionality.
Add On-circuit transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes and capacitor protection for surface-mount and dual-inline packages.
With one USB 3.1 Type-A port and one reversible USB 3.1 Type-C for the very fastest USB connections, you'll experience data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s or twice as fast USB 3.0. USB 3.1 is completely backward-compatible with your existing USB devices, and you'll be all set for USB 3.1's breakneck speeds. And ASUS-exclusive USB 3.1 Boost technology automatically accelerates USB 3.1 performance even further!
Turbo LAN with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology adds even more lag-reducing support and intuitive user interface. It allows you to lower lag with no expert knowledge by up to 1.45X! If you're a tweaker, use Advanced Mode for hardcore controls.
TUF Audio Design makes short work of optimizing audio settings for the way you want to listen, chatting, watching movies or relaxing to your favorite music. Onboard physical shielding, professional engineered design and premium components result in sound output that has exceptional clarity and fidelity.
