      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 Antec®, Apacer®, Ballistix, Cooler Master®, Corsair®, Deepcool, Enermax, G.Skill, GeIL®, In Win, Scythe, SilverStone, Team Group and XPG. 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 to make 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

      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.

      PERFORMANCE LEVEL UP

      FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLS

      GPU Temperature Sensing

      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 X470-plus Gaming

      FAN XPERT 2+

      TUF B450M-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.

      DDR4 SUPPORT

      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.
