ASUS takes its name from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology that symbolizes wisdom and knowledge. ASUS embodies the strength, purity, and adventurous spirit of this fantastic creature, and soars to new heights with each new product it creates.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Audio connectors: Capacitor protection on both front and back audio-output circuits.
LAN port: ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diode protection on the LAN circuit bolstered by an anti-surge LAN connector that increases protection against extreme events, such as lightning strikes.
