Overview

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 4 CORE

TUF B450-PLUS Gaming features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 Core 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.

I give 3 stars for one reason only.... delivery!! I ordered this item (a Motherboard) on Wed 2nd Sept from CCL and on the same day ordered from other suppliers a CPU, Memory and a Power Supply. All the other parts had arrived by Friday 4th & Sat 5th (I live in Northern Ireland) meanwhile this item was sitting at 'stock allocated until Monday 7th PM when status changed to 'ready for collection'. I was expecting delivery by Wed 9th (as promised when ordering).... not a chance as on that date the item was sitting somewhere in Leeds!! It did not arrive until Sat 12th. From other reviews, it seems delays in delivery are a common complaint with this company! As far as the item is concerned it arrived in good condition and is now installed and working. Price was just OK but had cashback offer from ASUS (I could have bought at around same price elsewhere).... I might buy again from CCL if they improve on delivery! (why was my item sitting at 'stock allocated' for so long, and then when finally dispatched why did it take a further 6 days to arrive??)

I would probably give this product 5 stars if I actually had it!! First order with CCL and probably last... ordered on 2nd Sept with a promise to be with me today (9th Sept).... no chance as it's still in Leeds today and I am in N Ireland... will prob not get it now until weekend!! My order sat at 'ready to dispatch' status until Mon 7th (late PM)!!! why was it not sent before this?? I ordered a CPU and memory on the same day (2nd) and had it by 4th... just no motherboard to put it into!!! Sorry CCL your price was a match with others but your delivery is faaaarrrrrr too slow!

Really great looking motherboard and easy to build with. The mixture of top and side mounted SATA ports allowed me to repurpose old mechanical drives while keeping cable management tidy. 12V RGB header may not be suitable for all.

Great entry level board, I bought this as part of a build for my little brother. Lots of connections and an ideal starting point

Niall Rose

Excellent motherboard. Easy to install, and comes with plenty of connectivity. Worked with Ryzen 3000 series out of the box. XMP/DOCP can be enabled in seconds via the BIOS. Comes with an RGB header, which adds a nice touch of colour!

Solid motherboard, great value for money, does everything you need for a mid-range build and is aesthetically pleasing.

Robin Chaddock

July 2020

Good budget board, comes ready for Ryzen 3000 out of the box with Ryzen 4000 support promised. Finally able to run my 3200MHz CL16 Corsair Vengeance memory kit at full speed (my old MSI B350 Bazooka wasn't stable above 2933MHz) My only complaint is the modern trend for black PCBs... the dark colour makes reading pin header labels extremely hard when they're inside your case, even with a torch.

Good value and quality

The motherboard performance is good for the price. The packaging and the number of cables that come with it is minimal. The manual is poor, requiring you to download another manual via a QR code

Mitchell Rowley

Great Board Great price easy to work with

Nicholas Bradshaw

Has everything you could ask for from a board in this price range, even supports rgb for those that like that kind of thing
