TUF design protects back I/O ports, expansion and memory slots plus critical connectors from dust and particles that degrade system performance over time if left unchecked. With a filter to ensure the back I/O fan doesn't draw dust into the board, Dust Defender guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer. TUF Black Metallic capacitors, chokes, and MOSFETs are screened by seven rigorous military-grade tests to ensure superior lifespan even under the most demanding conditions. Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS offers the first mouse-controlled graphical interface designed with a special theme for TUF boards, providing a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only controls. It also fully-utilizes 2.2TB and larger hard drives in 64-bit operating systems with native support. ASUS-exclusive EZ Mode displays frequently-accessed info, so you can alter system performance settings and drag and drop boot priorities. Advanced Mode for performance enthusiasts includes detailed DRAM settings via a dedicated memory info page for complete insight.
