- 4-pin PWM/DC fan - All onboard chassis fan headers support auto-detection of PWM and DC fans.
- Smart protection - A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent.
32Gbps M.2 Support
M.2 slot supports up to 22110 and data-transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps via x4 PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
*Actual transmission speed will be lower than theoretical maximum speed.
USB 3.2 GEN 2 TYPEA
Numerous USB ports support gaming rigs loaded with peripherals, including a USB Type-A connector with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 connectivity for compatible cases.
EASY PC DIY
TUF Gaming motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want - even for first-time builders. The TUF Gaming Alliance ecosystem makes selecting compatible parts easy, while Armoury Crate software offers full control of system settings via a single dashboard. TUF Gaming motherboards give you everything you need to build your dream gaming rig without adding complexity.
Build with confidence
TUF Gaming Alliance is a collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC-component brands to ensure compatibility with a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With more partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger.
SafeSlot Core+ is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot fortified with a one-piece stainless-steel brace that shields the slot to protect it from damage. The metal cover is tightly secured to the slot with hooks, and the entire assembly is firmly anchored to the PCB with strengthened solder points to provide a secure foundation for heavyweight graphics cards.
Strengthened solder points around the PCIe and DIMM pins.
Metal inserts keep graphics cards properly aligned during installation.
The metal side-panels feature hooks that firmly clasp the slot body.
ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge - greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of +/- 6 kV and +/- 4 kV.
- KEYBOARDS AND MOUSE CONNECTORS - Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression.
- VGA PROTECTION - Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect VGA output functionality.
- USB CONNECTORS - TVS diode for surface-mount and dual in-line package.
TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.
DRAM overvoltage protection
Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.
Stainless-steel back I/O panel
TUF Gaming motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF Gaming motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.
