RELIABILITY AND STABILITY
TUF Gaming motherboards are engineered to be as strong and as dependable they appear. TUF Protection is the name of TUF B350M-Plus Gaming's hardware safeguards that ensure long-term durability and stability, while the board's complement of military-grade TUF Components are manufactured and tested to exacting standards, providing the confidence you need to create a gaming system that'll go the distance.
SafeSlot: Protect your graphics card investment
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
ESD GUARDS: 2x Stronger ESD Protection
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) could mean game over for your rig, so TUF B350M-Plus Gaming is protected by ESD Guards, ensuring longer component lifespan and providing system resilience that's 2x greater than industry standards.
- LAN port
ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN Circuit
- Keyboard and Mouse Connectors
Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression
- VGA Connectors
Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect D-Sub functionality
- USB Connectors
TVS diode for surface-mount and dual-inline packages
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.
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, helping to improve system stability.
+20% higher temperature tolerance and 5x longer lifespan.
Certified military-grade MOSFETs with lower RDS(on).
*Lower RDS(on) results in better power efficiency and reduced heat generation
