TUF Thermal Armor
Total Airflow-Boosting Heat Dissipation
New Thermal Armor, with its military-styled design, covers the entire motherboard, using dual turbo fans to provide boosted airflow for rapid cooldown. The I/O cover fan draws cold air in for extra stability where it counts, helping conduct heat away with the smart shunt design. Newly added custom PCB convection holes provide underside circulation for even greater heat mitigation, denying temperatures room to build up.
TUF Thermal Radar 2
Real Time Temp Detection and Heat Removal
Thermal Radar monitors temperatures in critical parts of the board, automatically adjusting fan speeds for better system stability. Fan Overtime keeps fans working in critical minutes post shutdown to extend component lifespan, dropping temperatures by 7°C in just ten minutes after the computer turns off. New Fan Off consists of a switch that disables fans should temperatures drop below a manually or automatically set level for effective power consumption.
DIGI+ Power Control
Leading digital power control solution with the best quality
Third generation Dual Intelligent Processors 3, New DIGI+ Power Control include multiple digital voltage controllers, allowing ultra-precise and tuning for CPU, iGPU, and DRAM. This evolution of innovative and industry-leading ASUS technology provides super accurate voltage tuning for better efficiency, stability, and performance. Future power design standard Intel®VRD 12.5 ready onboard, decreasing CPU wattage by half, creating a cooler and quieter PC. This innovation of industry-leading ASUS technology provides the smartest control for better power saving scenarios.
Certified for Tough Duty
Get rugged performance even in the most challenging conditions with robust TUF chokes, solid capacitors, and MOSFETs--certified through third-party, military-grade testing. 10K Ti-Caps Japanese-made 10K black metallic capacitors offer 20%-better temperature endurance for a lifespan that's up to five times (5X) longer lifetime usage. TUF New Alloy Chokes Our military-grade alloy chokes have an 18.5%-larger heat-dissipation area so they run up to 13.6% cooler - and that means a longer lifespan for your PC. TUF MOSFETs TUF MOSFETs pass military-grade tests, with lower drain-to-source resistance (RDS) for great efficiency.
