5 out of 5 eggsso TUF, much Metal

Pros: Steel-reinforced mobo, thats TUF!
Dedicated mobo fan
Dust defense
Heavy

Cons: The TUF Gryphon mobo itself is beautifully designed, and the armor covers it all up, but the Armor looks awesome in its own right.
So none really.

Other Thoughts: I have the TUF Gryphon w/ Armor in an acrylic case and it looks amazing. Temps are always low across the board, regardless of what I am doing (Maya, Photoshop, iRacing)

3 out of 5 eggsLooks cool but will also takes away the motherboard military theme color

Pros: Looks cool with the thermal armor on. The back of the motherboard fortifier is made of metal & keep things rigid.

Cons: The thermal armor is made of plastic. Though it looks cool on the motherboard it also takes away the motherboard's military themed color. If you have a small space to work around with your PC case it can get tight with the thermal armor especially if you're water cooling. I have to use an angled fitting cuz a straight fitting on the radiator on top will hit the left upper corner of the thermal armor.

Other Thoughts: Would have been better if the thermal armor is made of metal like the fortifier on the back of the motherboard. Asus should have made it light brown or any color that would retain the motherboard's military theme.

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: Let's be honest here, you aren't thinking of buying this because of it's fortifying properties. I bought it because I thought it would look cool. And it totally does.

Cons: I only ran into one problem, the tiny little fan that circulates air under the cover started to make a loud whining noise. So. Minus an egg for that. This defect does not in anyway alter how freaking cool this thing looks.

Other Thoughts: Rig: 4770k @5.0,asus gryphon mobo, gtx 770 stock speeds, 8 gbs ram and a random assortment of ssds and old hard drives.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: All the fans and temp sensors help monitor and manage heat issue. The protective plug cover should help increase the longevity.

Cons: None. Although it would have been helpful if they included a better way to mount the temp sensor wires to the various areas of the case

5 out of 5 eggsNice Touch

Pros: Looks Great. Steel backplate. Channels heat away from critical components. Reduces dust and dirt accumulation.

Cons: This should be priced in with all Tuf series motherboards. It adds to the Tuf image.

Other Thoughts: Glad I got this free with purchase of the motherboard

5 out of 5 eggsPretty nice!

Pros: Got this for free with my Z87 Gryphon. Looks good, bolted on really easy.

Cons: Plastic might seems a bit flimsy, and ive found its made access to some of the on-board sockets a challenge.

Other Thoughts: Looks great, great deal getting it for free with the motherboard!
