More than just a cool military-styled cover, TUF Thermal Armor employs dual fans to provide boosted airflow for rapid cooling. Reversible-airflow technology blows dust up and away from the heatsink VRM, while the exclusive flow-valve design controls the heat-pipe's air contact - great for liquid-cooling setups!
Z97 Thermal Radar 2 now lets you control fans on ASUS graphics cards, as well your case fans! Multiple onboard sensors and the bundled thermistor cables let you monitor graphics card temperatures and other key components in real time, so you can adjust manually or optimize automatically with one click.
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.
TUF is proud to be a leading total solution provider. That means we test more than just the product itself - we examine system durability as a whole. Our motherboards undergo extreme temperature variations (thermal shock), extensive Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) test and many whole-build server-grade stability tests - so you know that your TUF motherboard can be trusted in all conditions.
