TUF Gaming Alliance

We’re creating friendlier DIY PC experiences by recruiting trusted industry partners to the all-new TUF Gaming Alliance. A gaming rig is more than just a motherboard. Together we’re stronger. It’s time to join the TUF Gaming Alliance — and team up for battle!

Intel’s Total Solution – Exclusive CNVi for 300 Series

CNVi (Connectivity Integration architecture) is embedded into Intel processors which enables a direct channel for integrated Intel total RF solution to achieve faster connectivity.

Intel Ethernet

TUF GAMING Series models feature the very latest Intel® Ethernet for faster, smoother gaming — always. Intel’s LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor’s workload, so there’s more power for your game and your gameplay!

TUF LANGuard

TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.

Customise your LAN priority

Turbo LAN with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology adds even more lag-reducing support and an intuitive user interface. It allows you to lower lag with no expert knowledge — by up to 1.45x! The game mode allow user to set priority to speed up the gaming data transmission.

Exclusive DTS Custom for GAMING Headset

Exclusive audio technology developed by ASUS and DTS to provide multi-channel surround virtualisation for stereo headphones. TUF Custom Audio includes easy-to-use, selectable presets optimised for different game genres including Aerial, Soundscape, and Tactical modes.

Aerial Mode

Best for MOBA/RTS/Grand Strategy/Sport gaming genres, since the user is looking down at the game space from above, the audio source should originate from the front. The front stereo preference setting should be used.

Soundscape Mode

Best for MMO/RPG/Action Adventure/Horror gaming genres, since the user is in the middle of the game space, the audio should originate some distance to the left and right of the user. The ‘Wide Stereo Preference’ setting should be used.

Tactical Mode

Best for FPS/Stealth gaming genres, since sounds act as positional cues for the user. The audio processing should optimise EQ settings to emphasise certain sounds.The Traditional Stereo Preference setting should be used.

GPU Temperature Sensing

System temperatures are key to a stable gaming rig ? especially GPU temperatures. TUF Gaming motherboards include Fan Xpert 4 Core 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.

Advanced Fan Controls for Ultimate Cooling and Quietness

TUF Gaming motherboards feature our best ever cooling capability, controllable from both Fan Xpert 4 Core and the UEFI.

Ready For All-In-One (AIO) Water-Cooling Pump

Full control of PWM or DC water pumps, perfect for self-contained cooling setups.

Improved DDR4 Stability

ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology trace layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements allow the Prime 300 Series to support a wide range of dual and quad-DIMM memory kits, while providing your rig with the stability it needs to deal with any type of workload – whether you’re gaming or running intensive applications.

• Improved memory stability and compatibility.
• Allows lower memory latencies at equivalent voltages.
• Improved memory frequency margin.

Aura Sync

A well-tuned system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the on-board RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.

TUF Components

Certified military-grade TUF Components to improve system stability.

TUF Mosfets: Certified military-grade MOSFETs with lower RDS(on). Lower RDS(on) results in better power efficiency and reduced heat generation
TUF Capacitors: +20% temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.
TUF Chokes: Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, helping to improve system stability.
TUF LANGuard: TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.

SafeSlot

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.

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.

Precision Control for Stable Power

The Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.

DRAM Overvoltage Protection – Short-Circuit Damage Prevention

On-board resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.

3x Better Corrosion Resistance

On-board resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.
