Power Design Stack Cool 3+ 2-ounce copper layers draw heat away from critical components to keep them at their optimal operating temperatures and provide more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds. TUF COMPONENTS TUF CHOKES Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability. TUF CAPACITORS Proprietary capacitors provide up to 20% greater temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan. DIGI+ VRM The integrated 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. Cooler by design 1. VRM HEATSINK A large, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation. THERMAL PAD High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink. 2. M.2 HEATSINK The M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability. 3. PCH HEATSINK Mass and surface area of the heatsink is carefully designed and balanced to maximize thermal dissipation for the latest AMD B550 chipset.

ESD guards ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge — greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of +/- 6 kV and +/- 4 kV. KEYBOARDS AND MOUSE CONNECTORS Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression. VGA PROTECTION Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect VGA output functionality. USB CONNECTORS TVS diode for surface-mount and dual in-line package. 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. 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 panel TUF Gaming motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels. With this protective feature, TUF Gaming motherboards passed 72-hour salt fog testing, while other brands only passed 24-hour testing.
