Total airflow-boosting heat dissipation
TUF thermal armor kicks cooling up a notch with dual integrated turbo engine fans. This enhances the original TUF thermal design, helping direct heat away from MOS area components and out the case via the rear I/O section. Special heat pipes propel dissipation from critical components and make sure temps stay low across the board. The thermal armor also provides modders and LAN party goers an extra-cool dress up option to show off their creativity and dedication to performance.

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 selected by users for each component, keeping everything cooler and longer lasting.

Digital power control for both CPU and DRAM
ASUS X79 motherboard includes DIGI+ power control with three digital voltage controllers, including DRAM controllers that offers ultra-precise memory tuning in addition to ultra-precise CPU voltage control. This excellent ASUS technology provides the powerful control for better efficiency, stability and performance.

Excellent power efficiency and stability
Two critical components work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response to efficiently deliver the right level of power on demand. Accurate power reduces wasteful voltage imprecision, and provides more a stable CPU and memory setup.

8 DIMM design
ASUS X79 motherboard is ideal for rendering detailed images or manipulating large files without the bottlenecks of conventional storage. It also allows users to set up big RAM disks and speed up frequently accessed programs, minimizing the impact of storage transfer delays while maximizing user benefit.

Flexible and easy BIOS interface
ASUS UEFI BIOS offers the mouse-controlled graphical BIOS designed with selectable modes, providing a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only controls. It also natively supports fully-utilized hard drives larger than 2.2 TB in 64-bit operating systems.

ASUS exclusive interface
EZ mode displays frequently-accessed info. Users can choose system performance settings and drag and drop boot priorities. Advanced mode for performance enthusiasts includes detailed DRAM settings via a dedicated memory info page for complete insight.

3x faster performance at a click
SSD caching from ASUS is easier than ever. At 3x faster, this feature boosts system performance by using an installed SSD with no capacity limitations as a cache for frequently accessed data. Harness a combination of SSD-like performance and response and hard drive capacity with just one click, no rebooting needed and instant activation for complete ease of use.

Easy, worry-free USB BIOS flashback
USB BIOS flashback offers convenient way to flash the BIOS ever! It allows overclockers to try BIOS versions easily, without even entering their existing BIOS or operating system. Just plug in USB storage and push the dedicated button for 3 seconds, and the BIOS is automatically flashed using standby power. Worry-free overclocking for the ultimate convenience!

Faster USB 3.0 transmission with UASP
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), the USB 3.0 standard. With USB 3.0 Boost, USB device transmission speed is significantly increased by up to 170%, adding to already impressively fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds. USB 3.0 Boost provides a user-friendly graphical interface, which instantly accelerates transfer speeds for USB 3.0 peripherals with exclusive ASUS device auto-detect settings.

2x faster with fully charged power
Powered eSATA 6 Gb/s combines data and power connectivity. Users enjoy 2x faster transfer rates, and can use external SATA 6 Gb/s devices with no additional power adapters. ASUS provides extra port with enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, and double the bandwidth of current bus systems for extra speed and accessibility.

Convenient USB 3.0 front panel compatibility
ASUS provides standardized USB 3.0 front panel support, compatible with any chassis. Enjoy faster throughput of USB 3.0 without relegating cables or devices to the hard-to-reach rear I/O.

Double USB access, double convenience
ASUS facilitates strategic USB 3.0 accessibility for both the front and rear panel - 6 USB 3.0 ports in total. Experience the Plug and Play connectivity at speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The SABERTOOTH X79 affords greater convenience to high speed connectivity.
