Tactical Armor, Fortified Reliability

TUF /tΛf/, stands for The Ultimate Force.

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

TUF Fortifier

  • Intro
  • Prevent Bending
  • Enhanced Heat Conduction

TUF Fortifier

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.

Prevent Bending

Prevents bending due to heavy components

TUF Fortifier can handle more weight than that of really heavy CPU coolers and graphics cards, giving you a huge safety margin. Even the largest and heaviest can be installed with no risk of causing motherboard PCB stressing.

Enhanced Heat Conduction

For better VRM cooling and DIY safety

TUF Fortifier uses a thermal pad attached to the motherboard, directing heat away from key components such as VRMs and MOSFETs, enhancing system cooling.

TUF Fortifier also protects DIY builders from solder pins and other sharp motherboard parts – preventing annoying cuts!

Thermal Armor with Flow Valve

  • Intro
  • Flow Valve
  • Convection Holes

Thermal Armor with Flow Valve

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.

Flow Valve

Control airflow for cooling flexibility

New generation Thermal Armor features an exclusive flow gate design.

In open state, the flow valve allows cool airflow from downdraft fans into Thermal Armor, maximizing airflow for fan-based thermal setups.

When closed, it focuses air on high-efficiency heatpipes for faster heat removal. This is especially useful for liquid cooling.

This flexibility was created to cater to different cooling arrangements, and make the most of all.

Convection Holes

PCB Convection hole for better cooling

Openings in the board are strategically-placed to improve air circulation and ensure effective cooling reaches under the board. PCB convection holes lower in-case temperatures, adding to system stability and endurance.

Thermal Radar 2

  • Intro
  • Thermal Tuning
  • Fan Control
  • Thermal Status

Thermal Radar 2

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.

Thermal Tuning

System thermal tuning in one click!

Thermal Radar 2 provides whole system fan optimization with a single click. This achieves the best cooling for your components beyond just the mere number of fans in your case. Based on the characteristics of each fan connected to your motherboard, all fan profiles can be quickly optimized.

Fan Control

Manually fan speed management

Gives customized settings for each fan, which can be easily changed. You can supervise fan speeds to balance cooling and noise emissions, and fans can be manually managed, individually controlled, and even named. All these promote better cooling, noise reduction, and power saving.

Thermal Status

Real-time thermal status reports

Thermal status reports show CPU and VGA area temperatures in real-time with smart thermal capacity evaluations for CPU and VGA zones.

CPU thermal assessment gauges temperature rises with increasing voltage, providing a benchmark to judge your CPU cooler’s performance.

"Safe & Stable!" Guardian Angel

  • Dust Defenders
  • ESD Guards
  • Server-Grade Test

Dust Defenders

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 Defenders guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer.

ESD Guards

Ultra-protection against electrostatic discharge

Electrostatic discharges (ESD) can happen suddenly, and their damaging effects are often underestimated. Exclusive ASUS ESD Guards circuit design and the included I/O shield provide four times the protection to extend component lifespan.

Server-Grade Test

All TUF Series motherboards pass a rigorous testing program during development, undergoing extreme temperature and humidity trials. These tests result in completely reliable motherboards that are ready for intense daily computing and heavy duty usage with the utmost stability


TUF Components

  • Intro
  • Ti-Cap
  • Choke and MOSFETS

TUF Components

Certified for tough duty

TUF 10K black metallic capacitors and MOSFETs are screened by seven rigorous military-grade tests to ensure superior lifespan even under the most demanding conditions.



Japan-made 10K Black Metallic Caps

Unique Black Metallic capacitors with military-standard certification offer +20% high and low temperature tolerance and 5X longer lifetime usage.

Choke and MOSFETS

TUF alloy chokes and MOSFETs

Chokes made of high-grade anti-oxidization materials for extra-unbeatable durability. TUF MOSFETs also pass military-grade tests with lower RDS(on), certified for tough duty.
