Description:TUF stands for The Ultimate Force.
The TUF series delivers a â€śtoughâ€ť 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 Thermal Armor
- Total Airflow-Boosting Heat Dissipation
The TUF Thermal Armor is the worldâ€™s first ever thermal design for the entire motherboard, not just for select critical areas. It safeguards the system against hot air generated by connected cards and components, keeping temps down. With its sophisticated and agile integrated shunt design, the Thermal Armor improves cool air circulation, directing it towards every important part for a complete motherboard cool down. It effectively conducts hot air away and out of the case through special airflow channels, contributing to enhanced system stability and extending component lifespan.
TUF Thermal Radar
- 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.
- Herald the Arrival of a New Digital Power Design Era
The new ASUS DIGI+ VRM design upgrades motherboard power delivery to a digital standard. The 8+2 digital architecture provides the highest power efficiency, generating less heat to enhance longer component lifespan and ensure minimal powerloss. With ASUS DIGI+ VRM, users can easily adjust power phase performance, enabling new PWM voltage and frequency modulation controls. Digital 8+2 power phase design also expands the modulation spectrum for improved stability and lower VRM switching noise by dynamically detecting system load, empowering users with superior flexibility and perfect precision to ensure optimized performance, extreme system stability, and greater power efficiency.
TUF Components (Alloy Choke, Cap. & MOSFET; Certified by Military-standard)
- Certified for Tough Duty
Get rugged performance even in the most challenging conditions with robust TUF chokes, solid capacitors, and MOSFETs--certified through third-party, military-grade testing. TUF Chokes, also known as the â€śAlloy Chokeâ€ť, is a made of a compound of various types of metal instead standard iron, enables the support of up to a massive 40A of rated current, 25% higher than conventional component. Furthermore, the single piece packaing also elimates the emission of virbation noise, delivering superb charactoristics as well as durability under extreme conditions.

Comments, Questions & Reviews:
CPU Cooler space by JD
Will this mother be spacious enough to fit Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler without blocking all the chipsets and RAM?
Chipsets yes, for the RAM it will depend on the height of the heat spreaders.
Watercooled by Ninja
I would imagine that the Corsair H70 would cause cooling problems as the CPU part does not blow air around. It has been stated a 70mm fan can be fitted to the board to remove this problem. Would it be necessary or is it just an excuse to part me from more money or is it really needed.
It's too early for us to say yet, I don't think our system builders have made any bundles or systems with this and watercooling together yet. It's a good question though, I'd recommend posting in the Cases, Heatsinks and Cooling section of our forums at http://forums.aria.co.uk - someone over there might have tried this or be able to offer advice.
Memory by KD
I read a spec for this board on the net and it says the minimum memory is 1 x 8 Gb DDR3. Is this correct or could you fit 2x4 Gb DDR3?
2 x 4 would work fine. Not aware of any consumer motherboards which require minimum 8GB Dimm modules.
Cooler by DS
Some reviews said that design of board will make difficult to instal some coolers. Which one you would suggest for intel i5 2500. Thanks
It really depends on your budget for a cooler. The best coolers you can get hold of are Noctua's or BeQuiet's :)
Are the problems with the P67 chip over now? by RobS
Can you confirm that this motherboard isn't affected by the bug that affects the S-ATA drives over time?
This is the Revision B3 version; i.e. specifically the revised versions which were produced to resolve that issue. As such there should be no SATA degradation issues.
