    Trooper Series Design Story

    All TUF. Durability Guaranteed.

    TUF TROOPER series motherboards are pumped with pure TUF spirit, able to survive the most rigorous conditions under even heavy loading. To create TROOPER, our engineers focused on the TUF founding principles of durability that overcomes all. The result are motherboards designed tough and built to last, staying true to our mission to take reliability to the next level for the longest lifespan. You demand guaranteed quality that endures 24/7 durability – so demand TUF TROOPER series.


    You demand 24/7 durability, so we've delivered! TUF motherboards undergo the industry's most-punishing tests to ensure they're ready for permanent duty in all scenarios. In our development labs we heat them, chill them, bend them, shock them and drop them — so you know that your TUF motherboard is certified for 24/7 durability!

    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. TUF is forged solid for your confidence, which is why every board is covered by a 5-year warranty.

    * The service will follow the local standard and service policy.

    Shielded Power Signal

    Effective shielding to minimize power-signal interference

    A shielded trace path between our renowned Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) and the I/O ports greatly reduces power-signal interference — and that improves the compatibility and reliability of connected devices.

    TUF LANGuard

    Exclusive military-grade LAN protection

    Trooper B150 D3's TUF LANGuard socket has advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput tested to military grade, TUF LANGuard is certified for tough duty to protect your motherboard from lightening strikes and static electricity.

    TUF ESD Guards 2

    2X Stronger ESD protection for extended component lifespan

    Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. TUF ESD Guards 2 technology raises the bar that are 2X higher than industry standards and exclusive pin-level on specific rear IO connectors* testing is 30% higher than previous TUF standard, ensuring electrostatic discharges are properly grounded from all onboard connectivity — and that means greater component longevity.

    * USB/LAN/DVI/D-sub

    • 1Audio connectors

      Capacitor protection on both front and back audio-output circuits

    • 2LAN port

      ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN circuit bolstered by an anti-surge LAN connector that increases protection against extreme events, such as lightning strikes.

    • 3USB connectors

      On-circuit transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes and capacitor protection for surface-mount and dual-inline packages.

    • 4D-Sub/DVI

      Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect D-Sub and DVI functionality.

    • 5Keyboard and mouse connectors

      Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes.

    TUF Components

    Certified for tough duty

    TUF Caps :
    +110% high temp, tolerance and 1.5X longer lifespan.

    military-grade certified MOSFETs with lower RDS(on)*

    TUF Chokes :
    military-grade certified TUF chokes for unbeatable durability, and maximize the lifespan of your system.

    * Low RDS means more power efficient and will thus produce slightly less heat as a by-product of the MOSFET

    TUF Audio Design

    TUF Audio Design makes short work of optimizing audio settings for the way you want to listen, chatting, watching movies or relaxing to your favorite music. Onboard physical shielding, professional engineered design and premium components result in sound output that has exceptional clarity and fidelity.

    • 1LED-lit Audio Shielding :
      Ensures precision analog/digital separation and greatly reduced multi-lateral interference, with a gorgeous illuminated trace path

    • 2Unique de-pop circuit :
      Reduces start-up popping noise to all audio outputs

    • 3Special layout design :
      Separate layers for left and right channels to guard the quality of the sensitive audio signals

    Ultimate cooling

    Thermal Radar CORE

    Complete system cooling. Customized fan tuning

    ASUS TUF Thermal Radar Core enables complete system cooling management – quickly, easily and safely. Customizable controls allow you to adjust fan speeds, allowing the temperature to be tuned with just a single click. And talking of single-click simplicity, live update ensures that your Thermal Radar Core is never out of date – just click the button to check for updates.

    • Thermal Assessment
    • Fan Control
    • Thermal Tuning

    Thermal Assessment allows you to judge when the CPU zone needs more cooling, making system fan control more precise — because it is based on real temperature information. Sensors record the CPU's temperature over time, so you can customize fan settings based on your computing habits.

    With customizable settings for each fan, you can extend your motherboard's lifespan. 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.
