The TUF series delivers a 'tough' image. With the unique design & high quality components (military-standard), TUF series is born for pursuing the preeminent stability, all-round compatibility, and extreme durability. The GRYPHON ARMOR KIT optimizes TUF DIY experiences. It includes Thermal Armor for better heat dissipation and TUF Fortifier strengthened back plating to prevent PCB bending or bowing due to heavy components. It also features Dust Defenders to resist dust build-up, and bundled thermistor cables to monitor the thermal status of key components. TUF Fortifier adds a strong backplate so the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers. Reduced PCB bowing and bending means an end to potentially damaged circuitry. Thermal Armor, with its military-styled design, covers the entire motherboard, providing boosted airflow for rapid cool down. The I/O cover fan draws cold air in for extra stability where it counts, helping conduct heat away with the smart shunt design. Newly added custom PCB convection holes provide underside circulation for even greater heat mitigation, denying temperatures room to build up. 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 Defenders guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer.
