ASUS TUF motherboards are built to last but you don’t have to take our word for it – our loyal users, international design institutions and the world’s media all adore The Ultimate Force.


The TUF story begins with matchless design — but that doesn’t happen overnight.

With Thermal Armor, for example, it took our engineers long-term discussions, surveys, illustrations and trials to perfect a design that fortifies the stability, reliability and durability of your build while allowing great airflow – so TUF motherboards can keep going, non-stop.

TUF Components – certified for tough duty

Naturally, we also choose the very finest components for our designs, from 10K black metallic capacitors, with 20% greater temperature tolerance and five times the lifespan, to alloy chokes with 13.6% higher power efficiency and lifespan and hardened MOSFETs.

Premium style

TUF motherboards incredibly stable — and yet they’re also wonderfully stylish, with every detail considered. Our Thermal Armor wasn’t simply bolted on as an afterthought, for example — our research and development team worked through multiple designs to find the perfect balance between fortification and good looks.

TUF engineers even developed Dust Defenders to cover unused slots and ports, protecting your PC against minuscule particles and environmental contamination that present a hazard to sensitive components — premium design that ensures good looks and longevity go hand in hand.

Certified for tough duty

We choose alloy chokes manufactured using high-grade, anti-oxidative materials for unbeatable durability — the only ones of their kind! Even our MOSFETs are independently verified as military-grade — ensuring a pristine power supply to your TUF motherboard at all times.

Military-grade 10K Ti-Caps with 5X-longer lifespan and 20% wider temperature tolerance combine with strong alloy chokes for 13.6% better heat-dissipation and low-RDS MOSFETs to round out a set of onboard components that are independently certified for military use — so you can be confident of high durability and reliability.

Guaranteed reliability

Again, there’s no need to take out word for it: some of the world’s most respected independent testing laboratories, have certified TUF motherboards as fit for military use. Our boards also undergo extensive heat tests, from thermal shock to resilience under prolonged heat exposure, so they’re fit for all environments — from the everyday to the extreme.

5 years warranty

In fact, we’re so confident of the reliability and durability of our products that each and every TUF motherboard is backed by a five-year warranty — and that means total peace of mind for you.

Third party military-grade tests

All TUF motherboards must pass a series of extremely demanding tests — both our own and those of independent labs. Even the individual components are subjected to extreme physical tests including thermal shock, moisture, corrosive salt spray and heavy vibration — so you are assured reliability and durability in everyday, real-world applications and under the most extreme conditions.

Proven compatibility

TUF guarantees the best compatibility as we test literally hundreds of components for compatibility, from memory kits to USB storage devices. But we go even further, subjecting each and every one of these certified-compatible components to thermal tests. The upshot is the reassurance that your system will have great compatibility and remain stable no matter how warm things get – and no matter what parts you choose.

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.
