    Thermal Armor with Flow Valve Optimizes airflow to boost heat dissipation

    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!

    A combination of form and function, Z97 Thermal Armor has been upgraded with innovative reversible-airflow technology that literally blows dust up and away from the heatsink and VRM!

    Dust de-Fan technology spins Thermal Armor's assistant fan in reverse to blow particles out of the case.

    This additional cooling can be optimized for different CPU cooling scenarios.
    By opening the two airflow valves, greater circulation can be achieved for air-cooling scenarios.
    While closing the valves will focus the airflow into the Thermal Armor channels — ideal for systems using self-contained liquid CPU coolers.
    PCB convection holes
    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.

    Z97 Thermal Radar 2's fan management has been expanded — so now you can control fans on ASUS graphics cards, as well as multiple case fans!
    With customizable settings for each fan, you can tune the Dust de-Fan technology to extend your motherboard's lifespan. Switch on your PC and Dust de-Fan briefly spins in reverse direction to disturb settled dust before switching to normal rotation to blow the dust out of the case. You can even monitor, manage and individually name and control your system's fans to create your perfect balance between quietness, cooling and performance.
    You can also choose to optimize the whole system's fan setup with a single click. Based on the characteristics of each fan connected to your motherboard, all fan profiles can be quickly optimized.
    With thermal-status reports showing CPU and graphics cards zone temperature in real-time, your system fan control can be as precise as you like! Additional CPU thermal assessment gauges temperature rises with increasing voltage, providing a benchmark to judge your CPU cooler's performance.
    Critical voltages, temperatures and fan speeds are recorded over time, so you can review your system's history and make informed judgments for improved operation.
    DIGI+ Power Control is one of the most essential motherboard designs, and TUF offers ultra-precise memory tuning in addition to extra-accurate CPU voltage control. Best in class power efficiency and stability reduces wasteful voltage discrepancies and provides a more stable CPU and memory setup.

    TUF ICe The total cooling commander
    ASUS TUF engineering team have forged a brand-new microchip that delivers incredibly precise temperature monitoring and fan controls.
    With the TUF ICe, you can be assured that monitoring of onboard temperature sensors and fan speeds is always ultra-accurate — whether you're adjusting settings manually or using the automatic one-click optimization.
    TUF Fortifier Improves rigidity and cooling behind the board

    TUF delivers great strength and cooling via exclusive TUF Fortifier. A reinforced backplate ensures that the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers, minimizing the risk of damaged circuitry from bowing and bending.

    TUF Fortifier also includes a thermal pad that efficiently directs heat away from the VRM and other components — an innovation that reduces operating temperatures by up to 7°C!

    • 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.TUF Fortifier also protects DIY builders from solder pins and other sharp motherboard parts – preventing annoying cuts!
    • Make the whole backplate your heatsink
      TUF Fortifier uses a thermal pad attached to the motherboard, making the whole backplate a huge heatsink that directs heat away from key components such as VRMs and MOSFETs.

    I/O Ports

    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.

    Server-grade Tests Systematically-tested stability

    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.

    5 Years Warranty Guaranteed reliability

    Each and every TUF motherboard is built with components certified for military use and undergoes serious server-level burn-in tests, including over 7,000 hours of compatibility checks with over 1,000 devices. TUF is forged solid for your confidence, which is why every board is covered by a 5-year warranty.

    TUF ESD Guards Strong ESD protection for extended component lifespan

    Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. TUF ESD Guards are tested to standards that are up to 2X higher than industry standards, ensuring electrostatic discharges are properly grounded from all onboard connectivity — and that means greater component longevity.
