TUF Intel® Z87 motherboard with fortified stability using a strengthened backplate and cooling system flexibility
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
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.
Prevent 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.
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.
Control airflow for cooling flexibilityNew 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.
Thermal Radar 2
Complete system cooling, customized fan tuningWith 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.
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.
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.
Real-time thermal status reportsThermal 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.
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.
Ultra-protection against electrostatic discharge
Electrostatic discharges (ESD) can happen suddenly, and their damaging effects are often underestimated. Exclusive ASUS ESD Guard circuit design and the included I/O shield provide four times the protection to extend component lifespan.
Certified for tough dutyTUF Black Metallic capacitors, chokes, 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.
New UEFI BIOS – friendlier and more intuitive
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.
