    Easy PC DIY Experience

    TUF Gaming motherboards offer easy and safe DIY builds by leveraging great design, innovative engineering, and strong partnerships with major component manufacturers. The unrivalled combination of military-grade TUF Components, TUF Protection and the TUF Gaming Alliance means that you can rest assured that your gaming rig will go the distance.

    TUF gaming alliance

    TUF Gaming Alliance is the marque of collaboration between ASUS and major PC-component manufacturers, including trusted brands like Ballistix, Cooler Master, Corsair, G.Skill, In Win and Themaltake. A growing range of compliant parts, from PC chassis and power supplies to CPU coolers and DRAM, guarantee both compatibility and aesthetic harmony. We're also continually increasing our partnerships, making the TUF Gaming Alliance ever stronger.

    TUF PROTECTION

    SafeSlot

    Protect your graphics card investment

    SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

    ESD GUARDS

    Electrostatic discharge protection

    ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10kV of air discharge and +/- 6kV of contact discharge — greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of +/- 6kV and +/- 4kKV

    ESD Guard

    LAN port

    ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN Circuit.

    Keyboards and mouse connectors

    Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression.

    VGA Protection

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

    USB connectors

    TVS diode for surface-mount and dual-inline package.

    FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLS

    Fan Xpert 2+

    System temperatures are key to a stable gaming rig ― especially GPU temperatures. TUF Gaming motherboards include FAN Xpert 2+ software that's able to intelligently control system fans based upon the input of multiple sensors, including the temperature of ASUS graphics cards*. This ensures that your TUF Gaming system stays perfectly cooled, no matter how long you play.

    * ASUS GeForce 700 and later cards supported.

    TUF B360 Plus Gaming

    FAN Xpert 2+

    TUF B360M-PLUS GAMING features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via FAN Xpert 2+ and our award-winning UEFI BIOS.

    • Multiple temperature sources
    • 4-pin PWM/DC fan
    • With FAN Xpert 2+ you're able to control system fans based on inputs from up to three temperature sources. For example, FAN Xpert 2+ can be set to spin up the chassis fans in response to the GPU temperature. So, when the gaming action heats up, additional cooling kicks in — just when you most need it. Choose your temperature sources and thresholds, from motherboard and CPU to GPU, and leave FAN Xpert 2+ to do the rest.

    • Enables full control of PWM or DC water pumps, perfect for both custom and self-contained cooling setups.

    • Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

    • A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent.

    Improved DDR4 Stability

    ASUS OptiMem

    ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology trace layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements allow the TUF Gaming motherboards to support a wide range of dual and quad-DIMM memory kits, while providing your rig with the stability it needs to deal with any type of workload - whether you're gaming or running intensive applications.

    ASUS OptiMem advantage:

    ASUS OptiMem benefits:

    Improved memory stability and compatibility
    Allows lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages
    Improved memory frequency margin

    Tested by using Synopsys HSPICE simulation software

    A larger signal eye results in improved stability, more overclocking headroom, and lower operating voltages.
