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.

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.

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.
