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 is a collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC-component brands to ensure compatibility with a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With more partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger. Learn More
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.
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
Precision control for stable power
The Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
Short-circuit damage prevention
Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.
3X-better corrosion resistance
TUF's corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels are bonded with chromium oxide ― so they can endure a 72-hour salt-spray test, compared to the industry standard of just 24 hours.
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, helping to improve system stability.
+20% temperature tolerance and 2.5X-longer lifespan.
Certified military-grade MOSFETs with lower RDS(on)*.
*Lower RDS(on) results in better power efficiency and reduced heat generation.
TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.
TUF B450M-PRO GAMING has an enhanced VRM and heatsink to improve cooling performance. New alloy chokes provide higher power-conversion, lower power-dissipation and better temperature control for more efficient operation. Improved voltage tuning further increases performance. An optimized VRM layout and a larger VRM heatsink with bigger thermal pads that offer improved conductivity deliver increased heat dissipation, slower temperature build-up and better overall cooling efficiency.
System temperatures are key to a stable gaming rig. TUF Gaming motherboards include FAN Xpert 2+ software that's able to intelligently control system fans based upon the input of sensor. This ensures that your TUF Gaming system stays perfectly cooled, no matter how long you play.
TUF B450M-PRO GAMING features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via FAN Xpert 2+ and our award-winning UEFI BIOS.
Each header can monitor and react to dedicated thermal sensors.
Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent.
TUF Gaming motherboards are subjected to stringent tests to ensure they're ready for any gaming environment. That foundation is backed by extensive validation lists that include memory kits for a range of budgets. Whether you're building a gaming PC that hits the performance sweet spot or aiming for sensible specs, it's easy to pick the right kit for your TUF Gaming rig.
