Asus Sabertooth 990FX (R2.0) - Military-Grade motherboard with TUF thermal armor

Asus Sabertooth is TUF-certified military hardware with new and exciting innovations to keep your motherboard cooler for longer. Innovations such as: Ultimate COOL thermal solution and Ceramix heatsink coating technology that effectively conducts heat away from the system replacing the traditional anti-oxidant to dissipate heat better with its microscopic irregular surface and enlarged area leading to overall system stability. Along with TUF Thermal Radar allowing the user to receive real-time temperature readings in critical parts of the motherboard and automatically adjusting fan speeds to make sure the system maintains high stability without overheating.

The Asus Sabertooth comes with new TUF Power Design Technology with DIGI+ power control allowing the user ultra-precise modulation and tuning for the CPU and DRAM, providing extremely accurate voltage tuning for better stability, efficiency and overall performance; Along with Asus' UEFI BIOS for a more friendly interface that goes beyond the traditional keyboard-only BIOS controls to enable more flexible and convenient mouse input. The user can easily navigate between Asus' exclusive EZ Mode (frequently-accessed setup info) for new enthusiasts or Advanced Mode for the more experienced enthusiasts who need more intricate system control such as, DRAM controls and more.

The Asus Sabertooth comes with exclusive ESP efficient switching power design for not only the CPU and memory, but also for other key components like the graphics cards, LAN and USB 3.0 allowing dramatic system efficiency and reduced heat generation. If that's not enough the Sabertooth also comes with various safe guards to protect valuable system components such as the MemOK, ESD guards and USB BIOS Flashback.
