TUF Gaming motherboards are specially designed and tested to survive and thrive in conditions where other boards would struggle. Engineered with highly durable components, these motherboards deliver unwavering stability for gaming sessions that last as long as you demand.

When you build with a TUF Gaming motherboard, you also benefit from the TUF Gaming Alliance — an ASUS collaboration with trusted industry partners that ensures easier building, the best compatibility, and complementary aesthetics from components to case.

Easy PC DIY Experience

TUF Gaming motherboards offer easy and safe DIY builds by leveraging great design, innovative engineering, and strong partnerships with major component manufacturers. The unrivalled combination of military-grade TUF Components, TUF Protection and the TUF Gaming Alliance means that you can rest assured that your gaming rig will go the distance.

TUF gaming alliance

TUF Gaming Alliance is the marque of collaboration between ASUS and major PC-component manufacturers, including trusted brands like Antec®, Apacer®, Ballistix, Cooler Master®, Corsair®, Deepcool, Enermax, G.Skill, GeIL®, In Win, Scythe, SilverStone, Team Group and XPG. A growing range of compliant parts, from PC chassis and power supplies to CPU coolers and DRAM, guarantee both compatibility and aesthetic harmony. We're also continually increasing our partnerships to make the TUF Gaming Alliance ever stronger.

TUF PROTECTION

SAFESLOT

Protect your graphics card investment

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 fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

ESD GUARDS

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

TUF LANGuard

BEST SURGE PROTECTION

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.

PERFORMANCE LEVEL UP

FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLS

GPU TEMPERATURE SENSING

System temperatures are key to a stable gaming rig ? especially GPU temperatures. TUF Gaming motherboards include Fan Xpert 2+ 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.

* ASUS GeForce 700 and later cards supported.

FAN XPERT 2+

TUF B450M-PLUS GAMING features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via FAN Xpert 2+ and our award-winning UEFI BIOS.

DDR4 SUPPORT

TUF Gaming motherboards are subjected to stringent tests to ensure they're ready for any gaming environment. That foundation is backed by extensive validation lists that include memory kits for a range of budgets. Whether you're building a gaming PC that hits the performance sweet spot or aiming for sensible specs, it's easy to pick the right kit for your TUF Gaming rig.

GAME YOUR WAY

Gaming Audio

DTS CUSTOM FOR GAMING HEADSETS

Hone your battleskills with exclusive DTS Custom onboard audio. Utilizing advanced emulation techniques to create positional cues via stereo headphones, DTS Custom takes onboard audio to a new frontier. With three presets ? Aerial, Soundscape, and Tactical ? for different genres, you'll have a distinct advantage in every game.

OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION

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 onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.

ULTRAFAST TRANSFER SPEED

Native 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A Support

While not in the ROG STRIX bracket, extremely well made, RGB lighting, M2 slot, and aura lighting. So happy i bought a 2nd and upgraded my girlfriends pc. Works very well with the Ryzen 2400G and will allow me an upgrade path.

A really solid little board if you only want one GPU card and a fairly simple BIOS. It runs typical Corsair DDR4-3200 RAM at full speed even under stress which previous gen Asus B350 boards did not.
