New generation Thermal Armor kicks cooling up a notch with dual integrated Turbo Engine Fans. This enhances the original TUF thermal design, helping direct heat away from MOS area components and out the case via the rear I/O section. Special heat pipes propel dissipation from critical components and make sure temps stay low across the board. The TUF Thermal Radar monitors temps in critical parts of the motherboard in real time, automatically adjusting fan speeds to sure the system maintains high stability without overheating. It consists of multiple sensors for various components on the motherboard, giving users the ability to monitor each one individually. The Thermal Radar automatically calculates ideal fan speeds based on different parameters selected by users for each component, keeping everything cooler and longer lasting.
All new digital CPU and DRAM power controls work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response efficiently delivering precision power. Accurate delivery reduces waste and provides more stable CPU Vcore voltages. With highly programmable digital controllers on board, users can adjust CPU and DRAM PWM voltages and frequencies for various scenarios with accurate input through UEFI BIOS tuning or the exclusive ASUS interface. This proprietary design provides ultra-precise voltage control for better efficiency, stability and performance.
