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 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.
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
CPU thermal assessment gauges temperature rises with increasing voltage, providing a benchmark to judge your CPU cooler’s performance.
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.
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.
Unique Black Metallic capacitors with military-standard certification offer +20% high and low temperature tolerance and 5X longer lifetime usage.
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.
Easily change the time and date in EZ Mode using the mouse.
Quickly apply XMP settings in UEFI BIOS EZ Mode, achieving better DRAM performance.
As demanded by the community, detailed fan controls come to EZ Mode so you can switch fan profiles for quick cooling and noise-level supervision.
Displays each SATA port details for you to easily recognize devices.
F4 or right click to add settings to My Favorites under Advanced Mode, which cuts time spent on searching and further speeds up system tuning.
Now you can customize your own shortcut log by pressing F4 or right clicking to create shortcuts to frequently-used settings. Instantly access them by simply hitting the F3 hotkey.
You no longer need to have a pen and paper notepad around. Quick Note works inside the BIOS so you can just type remarks and ideas to help you remember important settings info and save time on trial and error.
Always forget those important BIOS changes you did? This friendly function creates a tuning log to track your BIOS settings history, which can be saved onto a USB drive.
You can rename your SATA ports for easy identification, including by usage scenario. Get greater convenience and spend less time on finding the right devices when you want to change settings.
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!
Thanks to ASUS Windows 8 hardware optimization, ASUS Boot Setting provides better flexibility in customizing your PC’s startup process. You can shorten system boot-up time to 2-seconds* for a smoother user experience under Windows 8, and even previous versions of Windows. Also, you can enter the BIOS directly with one click through a user-friendly interface, and quickly select your preferred system boot up method: either get to the OS in seconds or opt for regular boot up. Whatever your choice, settings are saved and persistent, with no need to choose every time you power on.
