The TUF series delivers a "tough" image. With the unique design and high quality components (military-standard), TUF series is born for pursuing the preeminent stability, all-round compatibility, and extreme durability. TUF Fortifier adds a strong backplate so the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers. Reduced PCB bowing and bending means an end to potentially damaged circuitry. With a thermal pad directing heat away from VRM and other key components, TUF Fortifier combines great strength and cooling.

TUF stands for The Ultimate Force
The TUF series delivers a "tough" image. With the unique design and high quality components (military-standard), TUF series is born for pursuing the preeminent stability, all-round compatibility, and extreme durability.

Bolsters boards against bending damage
TUF Fortifier adds a strong backplate so the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers. Reduced PCB bowing and bending means an end to potentially damaged circuitry. With a thermal pad directing heat away from VRM and other key components, TUF Fortifier combines great strength and cooling.

Total airflow-boosting heat dissipation
Covers the entire board and features dual fans to direct cool air to critical parts and dissipate heat faster for better stability. Drastically boosts airflow and cooling with dual fans and a smart shunt design that directs hot air away from critical components. Air power is improved with a back I/O fan that pulls in cold air and expels even more heat. Exclusive flow valve design controls heatpipe air contact, better-utilizing liquid cooling setups.

Complete system cooling, customized fan tuning
With multiple onboard sensors and bundled thermistor cables, you can real-time monitor temperatures for areas around key components other than the motherboard itself. Customizable fan control gives you the flexibility of adjusting fan speeds manually and achieving optimal thermal tuning with one click.

Repel the dust, expand the lifespan
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 defender guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer.

Certified for tough duty
TUF metallic capacitors, chokes, and MOSFETs are screened by seven rigorous military-grade tests to ensure superior lifespan even under the most demanding conditions.

Full-scale performance tuning with easy BIOS interface
Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS offers the first mouse-controlled graphical interface designed with a special theme for TUF boards, providing a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only controls. ASUS-exclusive EZ mode displays frequently-accessed info, so you can alter 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.

Dedicated direct BIOS access button
Designed for those requiring frequent BIOS access, users can easily enter the BIOS when the PC is on standby power with a simple press of a button. It saves you time during boot-up as you don't have to repeatedly press the DEL key. Convenience and ease at their best!

170% faster transfer speeds than traditional USB 3.0
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) USB 3.0. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to already fast USB 3.0 performance. ASUS software automatically accelerates data rates for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without any user interaction.

Discover future visual experiences
Following up on popular 1080p Full HD, 4K Ultra HD is the next big thing, and you're ready for the upgrade thanks to integrated graphics that natively support up to 4096 x 2160 via HDMI or DisplayPort. That's four times the pixel count of 1080p (1920 x 1080), offering incredible visual clarity, detail, and realism.
