Designed Tough. Built to last
ASUS TUF made the world's first motherboard with an all-white printed-circuit board (PCB), and now SABERTOOTH Z170 S takes the arctic-camouflage concept even further — by stenciling the military-inspired digital pattern directly onto the board! As unique as it is evocative of might, SABERTOOTH Z170 S' stunning new aesthetic envisions the future for your next battle-ready rig.
Arctic-white Q-LED indicator
SABERTOOTH Z170 S is white through and through, and that includes the Q-LED indicator light. With a design inspired by an armored cockpit, see the power and act on the alerts, with a clear indication of five vital boot actions all cast in shimmering by a bright-white LED — the perfect complement for your arctic-themed build!
OC Design - ASUS PRO Clock technology
A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel® processors that allows overclocked base clock frequencies up to 400MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS Turbo Processor Unit (TPU), to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — granting an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.
Media-Acclaimed UEFI BIOS - Designed Tough. Built to last
The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
