    Detail Description
    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # Sabertooth 990FX R2 )

    Features
    TUF /tΛf/, stands for The Ultimate Force.
    The TUF series delivers a "tough" image. With the unique design & high quality components (military-standard), TUF series is born for pursuing the preeminent stability, all-round compatibility, and extreme durability.
    CeraM!X - Heatsink Coating Tech.
    50% Larger area for heat dissipation with the revolutionary ceramics-coating technology
    Innovative ceramics effectively conducts heat away from the system. It replaces traditional anti-oxidant to dissipate heat better with its microscopic irregular surface and enlarged area. Better cooling leads to overall improvement in system stability.
    TUF Thermal Radar
    Real Time Temp Detection and Heat Removal
    The TUF Thermal Radar monitors temps in critical parts of the motherboard in real time, automatically adjusting fan speeds to make sure the system maintains high stability without overheating. It consists of multiple sensors for various components on the motherboard, giving users the ability to monitor each area, while increasing options for fan control housed inside the chassis. The Thermal Radar automatically calculates ideal fan speeds based on different parameters selected by users for each component, keeping everything cooler and longer lasting.
    New DIGI+ Power Control
    Leading digital power control solution with the best quality
    New DIGI+ Power Control includes multiple digital voltage controllers, allowing ultra-precise modulation and tuning for both the CPU and DRAM. This innovative and industry-leading ASUS technology provides extremely accurate voltage tuning for better efficiency, stability and performance.
    UEFI BIOS
    Flexible and Easy BIOS Interface
    ASUS UEFI BIOS offers a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only BIOS controls to enable more flexible and convenient mouse input. Users can easily navigate the UEFI BIOS with the smoothness of their operating system. Quick and simple overclocking and setup sharing is facilitated by the F12 hotkey BIOS snapshot feature. The exclusive EZ Mode displays frequently-accessed setup info, while the Advanced Mode is for experienced performance enthusiasts that demand far more intricate system control, including detailed DRAM information.
    TUF Components (Alloy Choke, Cap. & MOSFET; Certified by Military-standard)
    Certified for Tough Duty
    Get rugged performance even in the most challenging conditions with robust TUF chokes, solid capacitors, and MOSFETs--certified through third-party, military-grade testing. TUF Chokes, also known as the "Alloy Choke", is a made of a compound of various types of metal instead standard iron, enables the support of up to a massive 40A of rated current, 25% higher than conventional component. Furthermore, the single piece packaing also elimates the emission of virbation noise, delivering superb charactoristics as well as durability under extreme conditions.
    E.S.P. Efficient Switching Power Design
    Optimal power efficiency for key components
    Exclusively for this motherboard, the switching power design is provided not only for the CPU and memory, but also for other key components such as graphics cards, LAN and USB 3.0. E.S.P. dramatically improves system efficiency and reduces heat generation.

    ESD Guards
    Unique protection of motherboard components from unexpected electrostatic discharges (ESD)
    Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly and its damaging effects is often underestimated. Exclusive ASUS anti-static chip, a protective circuit design, and the I/O shield provides four times better protection to extend component lifespan.
    USB BIOS Flashback
    Simple Plug & Press - Hardware-based BIOS Flashback
    A truly revolutionary hardware-based update solution. USB BIOS Flashback offers the most convenient way ever to update the BIOS! It allows users to update new UEFI BIOS versions even without hardware such as a CPU or DRAM installed into the motherboard. Just plug in a USB flash drive containing the BIOS file, and press the BIOS Flashback button for 3 seconds with the power supply connected. The UEFI BIOS will then automatically update without requiring further interaction. With its new, complementary Windows application, users can regularly check for UEFI BIOS updates and download the latest BIOS automatically. Hassle-free updating for the ultimate convenience!
