Ultimate Cooling

Thermal Armor and M.2 heatsink

TOTALLY COOL, ACROSS THE BOARD.

TUF X299 Mark 1 has been carefully designed to boost airflow and heat dissipation to keep the temperature of vital components as cool as can be. TUF Thermal Armor puts a fan in the PCH area that directs airflow towards an ultra-efficient M.2 heatsink, slashing SSD temperatures by up to 25°C — and that means optimal storage performance and improved drive longevity.

TUF ICe

THE TOTAL COOLING COMMANDER

ASUS TUF engineers have forged TUF ICe, a dedicated processor that monitors onboard temperature sensors and fan speeds to provide ultra-accurate cooling in every scenario — whether you're adjusting settings manually or using the automatic one-click optimization via Thermal Radar 3 and TUF Detective 2.

 

Thermal Radar 3

INSTANT FAN TUNING, COMPLETE SYSTEM COOLING

Our Thermal Radar 3 software allows you to control connected chassis fans, water pumps, AIOs, and even the fans of ASUS graphics cards — all to provide ultimate cooling performance for gaming and productivity. Multiple onboard sensors also enable the temperatures of key components to be monitored in real time, so you can assess and optimize cooling efficiency.

  • Instantly optimize the system's entire cooling profile with a single click.

  • Unleash your PC's full performance potential with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU). Besides offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor stats, and adjust overclock parameters, TUF X299 Mark 1 provides additional thermal tuning options – Extreme Tuning and Stress Test — that let you test and optimize system stability and cooling performance.

  • TUF X299 Mark 1 has customizable settings for its 10 fan headers, offering maximum control over your build's cooling and quietness. You can even monitor, manage and control the fans to create your perfect balance between quietness, cooling and performance.

  • With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.

  • TUF X299 Mark 1 Thermal Radar 3 fan management feature has been expanded — allowing custom fan control on ASUS graphics cards* as well as case fans.

    * ASUS GTX700 Series and above graphics cards supported.

  • An integrated recorder logs critical voltage readings, temperatures and fan speeds over time – so you can review vital stats and make informed decisions for system settings and optimal operation.

    24/7 reliability

    You demand 24/7 reliability — and we've delivered! TUF motherboards undergo the industry's most punishing tests to ensure they're ready for long-term duty in any environment. In our tests we overheat them, chill them, bend them, shock them and drop them — so you know that your TUF motherboard is certified for 24/7 reliability!

     

    TUF Fortifier

    IMPROVES RIGIDITY AND COOLING BEHIND THE BOARD

    TUF X299 Mark 1 delivers great strength and cooling via an exclusive TUF Fortifier — a reinforced backplate which adds structural rigidity across the board to ensure the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers, minimizing the risk of damaged circuitry from bowing and bending.

    TUF Fortifier also includes a thermal pad that efficiently directs heat away from the VRM and other components — an innovation that reduces operating temperatures by up to 5°C!

    TUF VGA Holder

    USER-FRIENDLY DESIGN

    TUF X299 Mark 1 features a VGA holder that eliminates ugly and potentially damaging graphics card sag by supporting the motherboard to prevent bowing and bending. The VGA holder is crafted from a single piece of strong sheet metal and is able to support up to 15 kg — so it provides serious support for even the heaviest graphic card!

    Dust Defenders

    REPEL DUST, EXTEND LIFESPAN

    TUF X299 Mark 1 has unique Dust Defenders to prevent dust and other airborne particles from entering the motherboard's PCI Express® expansion slots, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state for longer.

     

    Dust Defenders

    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 the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
