Real-Time Temperature Detection and Heat RemovalThermal Radar 2 uses sensors to control motherboard temperatures, automatically adjusting fan speeds for better system stability and power efficiency. Customizable fan management joins thermal status notices, showing users real-time motherboard, CPU, and VGA zone cooling status and promoting extended system longevity, power savings, and noise reduction.
Certified for Tough DutyGet rugged performance – even in the most challenging conditions – with robust TUF chokes, solid capacitors, and MOSFETs, all certified through third-party, military-grade tests. TUF Chokes, also known as “Alloy Chokes”, are made of a compound of various metals instead of the standard iron, enable the support of up to a massive 40A of rated current – 25% higher than conventional components. Furthermore, the single-piece packaging eliminates the emission of vibration noise, delivering superb characteristics as well as durability under extreme conditions.
Server-Grade Reliability TestTo best handle the diverse temperature and humidity ranges of different locations, TUF motherboards pass a rigorous testing program during development to verify their endurance and ensure safe and smooth operation, even in the most challenging conditions. These tests result in completely reliable motherboards that are ready for intense daily computing and heavy duty usage with the utmost stability.

1.3X Faster than Traditional USB 3.0With USB 3.0 Boost technology, USB transfer speeds are significantly increased up to 1.3 times, enhancing an already impressive USB 3.0 transfer rate. ASUS software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals, without the need for any further user configuration.
Simple Plug & Press – Hardware-Based BIOS FlashbackA truly revolutionary hardware-based update solution, USB BIOS Flashback offers the most convenient way ever to update the BIOS! It allows users to update new UEFI BIOS versions, even without hardware such as a CPU or DRAM installed into the motherboard. Just plug in a USB flash drive containing the BIOS file, and press the BIOS Flashback button for three seconds with the power supply connected. The UEFI BIOS will then automatically update without requiring further interaction. With its new, complementary Windows application, users can regularly check for UEFI BIOS updates and download the latest BIOS automatically. Hassle-free updating for the ultimate convenience!
