The Total Cooling Commander

  1. ASUS TUF engineering team have forged a brand-new microchip that delivers incredibly precise temperature monitoring and fan controls.
With the TUF ICe, you can be assured that monitoring of onboard temperature sensors and fan speeds is always ultra-accurate — whether you're adjusting settings manually or using the automatic one-click optimization.
TUF Components
Certified for Tough Duty


+20% Temp. tolerance and 5X longer lifetime usage
SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 2 2. TUF New Alloy Chokes:

13.6% cooler for extra-unbeatable durability

Military-grade certified MOSFETs with lower RDS(on)*
*Low RDS means more power efficient and will thus produce slightly less heat as a by-product of the MOSFET
Server-Grade Tests
Systematically-Tested Stability

TUF is proud to be a leading total solution provider. That means we test more than just the product itself - we examine system durability as a whole. Our motherboards undergo extreme temperature variations (thermal shock), extensive Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) test and many whole-build server-grade stability tests - so you know that your TUF motherboard can be trusted in all conditions.

Five-Year Warranty
Guaranteed Reliability

Each and every TUF motherboard is built with components certified for military use and undergoes serious server-level burn-in tests, including over 7,000 hours of compatibility checks with over 1,000 devices. TUF is forged solid for your confidence, which is why every board is covered by a 5-year warranty.

TUF ESD Guards
Strong ESD Protection for Extended Component Lifespan

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. TUF ESD Guards are tested to standards that are up to 2X higher than industry standards, ensuring electrostatic discharges are properly grounded from all onboard connectivity - and that means greater component longevity.

  1. Keyboard and Mouse Connectors:
    Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes.
  2. USB 3.0 / 2.0 Connectors:
    On-circuit transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diodes and capacitor protection for surface-mount and dual-inline packages.
  3. Audio Connectors:
    Capacitor protection on both front and back audio-output circuits.
  4. LAN Port:
    ESD transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diode protection on the LAN circuit bolstered by an anti-surge LAN connector that increases protection against extreme events, such as lightning strikes.

5 out of 5 eggsA reliably tough motherboard

Pros: Easy to install, bios is clean and user friendly (shockingly) and the dust covers are nice. Easy to get up and running. Love the tuf armor! Comes with thermostats to help manage the fans.

Cons: It is bulky and a bit heavier due to the tuf armor but not too heavy for the screws but the tuf armor is totally worth it.

Other Thoughts: Fits nicely and runs quiet in the NZXT H440 case

2 out of 5 eggsthe little fans are a dealbreaker

Pros: bios
just about everything except the little fans and thermal armor.

Cons: thermal armor, and the little fans that go with it.
little dust filter for little fan
I might remove the thermal armor and the little fans, but it looks like this will be a pain because it looks like I will have to remove the CPU cooler to do this.

Other Thoughts: buy one of the ASUS boards without the "thermal armor".

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Looks great
-Interesting accessories (some are useful)
-Z97 platform
-Good warranty
-Reliable brand

Cons: -Caused a clearance issue with the H100i and Fractal R4. No harm done as I just moved the drive cage over a bit and did a front radiator mount.

4 out of 5 eggsExceptional and Slick

Pros: The whole makeup of this board is just beautiful, and most important to me of all is the cushion on the back panel. Whoever thought that up deserves a medal.

Cons: The cons are actually a few very small problems that add up to an egg worth witholding.

First, and most oddly, no screws to install the board itself! I of course used the ones from my old board, but still, no screws? How'd that happen?
Second, some of the images in the instructions don't seem to be very accurate, but whatever.
Last, the HDD ports sitting right behind my GPU are an odd choice in design, but I get it. A little scary, is all.

Other Thoughts: Put this board in a black NZXT H630 and you've got a very sleek PC. I know I do.

5 out of 5 eggsSabretooth Z97

Pros: Typical Sabertooth quality. Fans for aux cooling work a lot better than Z77 model. @ USB 3 ports on motherboard. Future proof for new Intel processors.

Cons: No explanation as to the gates on cooling armor ... what do they do when engaged each direction?

Other Thoughts: Well worth the purchase if you want rock steady performance.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat overall lots and lots of features

Pros: I love this motherboard so much the aesthetics and performance. first of its probably one of the most dust resistant mother boards ever. it comes with i believe one 35mm fan and one 40mm fans to mount to it to route air from under the thermal shield out the I/O panel, It even has a dust panel for the fan! The are some vents near the CPU as well that you can use to either help cool the CPU or cool the motherboard as well which is very handy ever though its already a beast of an overclocker! Some little things it has covers to cover any un-used ports in the motherboard and fake RAM sticks to put in any idle slots as well for the PCI's

Cons: -fans are louder that anything iv'e ever had in a build even louder than everything combined.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Bad a@# looking board with the TUF armor and fortifier.

Great looking bios also with lots of settings to do.

Cons: I dont know if this is a con or not but the manual did not specify which way (pull/push) the assistant fan should be installed.

Other Thoughts: Its a great board, needs time to play with the settings.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast of a MB

Pros: -They aren't joking about Military Grade material. Thing is tough as nails.
-Tons of accessories.

Cons: -Only small complaint would be trying to screw down MB though the protective shield, really no biggie tho.

Other Thoughts: My Build:

-Intel 4790K w/Corsair H50 Liquid Cool
-Asus Z97 Sabertooth Mark 1
-G.Skill Sniper 1866 DDR3 8GB
-Samsung 840 EVO SSD TLC
-Corsair HX Series 1000W PSU
-Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty
-CM Storm Stryker Full Tower White Case

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome and durable mobo

Pros: - I felt more confident handling the board because of the TUF armor, port covers and 5 yr warranty
- lots of thermal sensors, fan headers and status leds
- Good and easy-to-use tweaking software

Cons: - No M.2 support
- Small fans are noisy
- The manual does not show that you can connect a 4+4 EPS cable (from EVGA 750 G2 PSU) into the CPU's EATX12v power socket
- Connecting that 4+4EPS cable was a real struggle in my Corsair 550D case with the big CPU cooler in the way
- TUF armor doesn't have clearance for ratcheting screwdriver in some locations

Other Thoughts: - Adjust the fan profiles on those small fans to quiet them down.
- If you want to use those small fans, be sure to install them BEFORE adding in a large cpu cooler. A Noctua NH-U12S will get in the way.
- Upgraded the bios after installing Win 8.1 without any problems.
- I only have 2 DIMMs installed, so I can't say if there are any issues there.
