Thermal Armor and M.2 heatsink - TOTALLY COOL, ACROSS THE BOARD.
TUF X299 Mark 1 has been carefully designed to boost airflow and heat dissipation to keep the temperature of vital components as cool as can be. TUF Thermal Armor puts a fan in the PCH area that directs airflow towards an ultra-efficient M.2 heatsink, slashing SSD temperatures by up to 25°C — and that means optimal storage performance and improved drive longevity.
TUF ICe - THE TOTAL COOLING COMMANDER
ASUS TUF engineers have forged TUF ICe, a dedicated processor that monitors onboard temperature sensors and fan speeds to provide ultra-accurate cooling in every scenario — whether you're adjusting settings manually or using the automatic one-click optimization via Thermal Radar 3 and TUF Detective 2.
Thermal Radar 3
INSTANT FAN TUNING, COMPLETE SYSTEM COOLING
Our Thermal Radar 3 software allows you to control connected chassis fans, water pumps, AIOs, and even the fans of ASUS graphics cards — all to provide ultimate cooling performance for gaming and productivity. Multiple onboard sensors also enable the temperatures of key components to be monitored in real time, so you can assess and optimize cooling efficiency.
IMPROVES RIGIDITY AND COOLING BEHIND THE BOARD
TUF X299 Mark 1 delivers great strength and cooling via an exclusive TUF Fortifier — a reinforced backplate which adds structural rigidity across the board to ensure the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers, minimizing the risk of damaged circuitry from bowing and bending.
TUF Fortifier also includes a thermal pad that efficiently directs heat away from the VRM and other components — an innovation that reduces operating temperatures by up to 5°C!
Dust Defenders - REPEL DUST, EXTEND LIFESPAN
TUF X299 Mark 1 has unique Dust Defenders to prevent dust and other airborne particles from entering the motherboard's PCI Express® expansion slots, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state for longer.
