Tactical Armor, Fortified Reliability
TUF /tΛf/, stands for The Ultimate Force.
The TUF series delivers a “tough” image. With the unique design & high quality components, TUF series is born for pursuing the preeminent stability, all-round compatibility, and extreme durability.
Bolsters boards against bending damage
TUF Fortifier adds a strong backplate so the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers. Reduced PCB bowing and bending means an end to potentially damaged circuitry.
With a thermal pad directing heat away from VRM and other key components, TUF Fortifier combines great strength and cooling.
Thermal Armor with Flow Valve
Total Airflow-Boosting Heat Dissipation
Covers the entire board and features dual fans to direct cool air to critical parts and dissipate heat faster for better stability. Drastically boosts airflow and cooling with dual fans and a smart shunt design that directs hot air away from critical components. Air power is improved with a back I/O fan that pulls in cold air and expels even more heat. Exclusive flow valve design controls heatpipe air contact, better-utilizing liquid cooling setups.
In open state, the flow valve allows cool airflow from downdraft fans into Thermal Armor, maximizing airflow for fan-based thermal setups.
When closed, it focuses air on high-efficiency heatpipes for faster heat removal. This is especially useful for liquid cooling.
Thermal Radar 2
Complete system cooling, customized fan tuning
With multiple onboard sensors and bundled thermistor cables, you can real-time monitor temperatures for areas around key components other than the motherboard itself. Customizable fan control gives you the flexibility of adjusting fan speeds manually and achieving optimal thermal tuning with one click.
Repel the Dust, Expand the Lifespan
TUF design protects back I/O ports, expansion and memory slots plus critical connectors from dust and particles that degrade system performance over time if left unchecked. With a filter to ensure the back I/O fan doesn’t draw dust into the board, Dust Defenders guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer.
Ultra-protection against electrostatic discharge
Electrostatic discharges can happen suddenly, and their damaging effects are often underestimated. Exclusive ASUS ESD Guards circuit design and the included I/O shield provide four times the protection to extend component lifespan.
Certified for tough duty
TUF 10K black metallic capacitors and MOSFETs are screened by seven rigorous military-grade tests to ensure superior lifespan even under the most demanding conditions.
New UEFI BIOS
New UEFI BIOS – friendlier and more Intuitive
Exclusive EZ Mode adds useful info to become even easier

EZ Mode has a whole new look, upgraded with extra-friendly capabilities like detailed fan controls, XMP profile settings, SATA information, and fast clock adjustment. Together, these perfect your BIOS experience.
One press to apply and access frequent settings
Now you can customize your own shortcut log by pressing F4 or right clicking to create shortcuts to frequently-used settings. Instantly access them by simply hitting the F3 hotkey.
You no longer need to have a pen and paper notepad around. Quick Note works inside the BIOS so you can just type remarks and ideas to help you remember important settings info and save time on trial and error.
Always forget those important BIOS changes you did? This friendly function creates a tuning log to track your BIOS settings history, which can be saved onto a USB drive.

Where should I start
Very easy, although it's heavier due to the thermal armour fitting it was fine. The Manual told you everything you would ever want to know about fitting it and the small assistant fans are very easy to fit. The only thing I would of liked is recommendations on where to put the 3 extra Temperature probes you get.
Once I had built my rig and fired it up I was greeted to what seemed a very simple, elegant bios. After reading the manual further I found the Advanced Mode. Now it was clear, this Mobo had nearly everything a Gamer like me could want.I popped into the OC area shall we say. And found the OC'ing utilities. I managed upto 4.8 but decided to to keep it stock until I got a decent fan. the Auto OC took my 4790k upto 4.9 and it ran smoothly apart from temps. Hence why I kept the cpu at stock for the time being. aswell, the Mouse is a nice touch In the bios, and as a bonus it doesn't lag like my old one did :D
Since the Mobo is by Asus you got all their gubbings with it. Some of the programs are amazing, like AI suite 3. this allows you to see 9 temps + 3 extra, adjust all fan speeds. use the charging port at the back, Prioritize WiFi and more. Of course you also get CPU-Z and much more other stuff.
This Mobo in my eyes is perfect, has loads and I mean loads of ports, and nice touches e.g. covers to cover unused PCI-E slots and all rear ports.
This TUF armour is brilliant, with the fans and keeps system temps below 45 full load (With Cpu air valves open).
This a beginner Mobo and has everything I think anyone wants, I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants a silent PC with only 1 or 2 case fans, and who intends to overclock!
XMP Overclocking A.I. extensive bios (With GUI mouse control) my stock 3.5 Mhz settled down at 3.9 Mhz With a H100i fitted clocking by Temperature sensing is wickedly accurate extra probes included for the thermal radar app but does use all the built in sensors so there`s no shortage of monitoring. OH & what about that thermal armour. This is a thing of beauty as well as power.
