Overview

Arm Your Battlestation

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

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 a collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC-component brands to ensure compatibility with a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With more partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger.

TUF PROTECTION

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

ESD GUARDS

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

DIGI+ VRM

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

Onboard 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.

STAINLESS-STEEL BACK I/O

TUF's corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's 3X longer than traditional panels. TUF Gaming motherboard passed 72 hours salt fog test while other brands only passed 24 hours test.

TUF COMPONENTS

TUF CHOKES

Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, helping to improve system stability.

TUF CAPACITORS

+20% temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.

TUF MOSFETS

Certified military-grade MOSFETs with lower RDS(on)*.

*Lower RDS(on) results in better power efficiency and reduced heat generation.

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.

Built for Hard Duty

Optimized Thermal Design

The TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING's VRM and inductor array is coupled to a large heatsink that has ample surface area to deal with the thermals of Intel's latest processors.

ProCool Socket

ENHANCED EATX 8-PIN SOCKET

  • Solid and more durable
  • Prevent hotspots and connector failure

Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. This lowers impedance, which helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

Optimem II SUPPORT

DDR4 OC 4266 MHZ+

To provide Intel's latest processors' unfettered access to memory bandwidth, we've reimagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up. Our OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, we've employed a highly customized T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signaling.

SETUP AND CONFIGURATION

TUF Gaming motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want, even for first-time builders. With simplified CPU and memory overclocking to optimize and boost performance, intelligent cooling controls for better system stability, and helpful troubleshooting tools to get you up and running quickly if you encounter problems, TUF Gaming motherboards give you everything you need to build your dream gaming rig without adding complexity.

Easy Trouble shooting

MEMOK! II

MemOK! II automatically fixes boot failures that arise due to memory overclocking and instability. When a DRAM-related POST error occurs, the motherboard adjusts memory parameters until the system is able to start.

Quick Installation

Q-INSTALLER, NO DRIVER DISC REQUIRED

ASUS Q-Installer software provides automatic download and installation of drivers and utilities for your TUF Gaming motherboard. Choose just the options you want from a user-friendly interface and Q-Installer will do the rest.

FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLS

GPU TEMPERATURE SENSING

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

TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 and our award-winning UEFI BIOS.

GAMING PERFORMANCE AND ASTHETIC CUSTOMIZATION

TUF Gaming Z390 provides a complete, high-performance gaming package with a long list of features to improve your experience, including ultrafast networking for smoother online gameplay, immersive audio with positional cues for FPS gaming, and onboard RGB lighting that syncs with attached accessories to help you create the perfect gaming atmosphere.

Intel Integrated Ultra Wi-Fi support

TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING (WI-FI) features the latest Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 MU-MIMO and wide 160MHz channels, for wireless speeds of up to 1.73Gbps.* In fact, its integrated Wireless-AC 9560 Wi-Fi adapter pushes wireless data up to 2X faster than other Wi-Fi solutions — so you'll get fast, smooth transfers, even when your rig is further away from the router. Intel Wireless-AC 9650 also offers Bluetooth 5 for connections that are up to 2X faster than ever before, and with up to 4X the range.

* Maximum achievable speed depends on router.

Intel Ethernet

MORE THROUGHPUT, LESS CPU USAGE

TUF Z390-PLUS Gaming features the very latest Intel Ethernet. Intel's LAN has the advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.

Turbo LAN

NETWORK-OPTIMIZATION SOFTWARE FOR CUSTOMIZABLE PACKET PRIORITIZATION

Turbo LAN with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology adds even more lag-reducing support and an intuitive user interface, so you'll reduce lag by up to 1.45X — with no expert knowledge. It even includes Game mode to prioritise game-related data transmissions, smoothing network operations every time you play.
