Easy PC DIY Experience

TUF Gaming motherboards offer easy and safe DIY builds by leveraging great design, innovative engineering, and strong partnerships with major component manufacturers. The unrivalled combination of military-grade TUF Components, TUF Protection and the TUF Gaming Alliance means that you can rest assured that your gaming rig will go the distance.

TUF Gaming Alliance The TUF Gaming Alliance is a collaboration between ASUS and trusted PC-component brands to ensure compatibility with a wide range of parts, such as PC cases, power supplies, CPU coolers, memory kits and more. With more partnerships and components being added regularly, the TUF Gaming Alliance will continue to grow even stronger.

TUF PROTECTION

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: Electrostatic Discharge Protection
ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to ±10kV of air discharge and ±6kV of contact discharge — greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of ±6kV and ±4kV.

  • LAN port: ESD TVS diode protection on the LAN Circuit
  • Keyboards & Mouse Connectors: Additional on-circuit ESD transient-voltage-suppression
  • VGA Protection: Additional on-circuit ESD TVS diodes to protect D-Sub functionality
  • USB Connectors: TVS diode for surface-mount and dual-inline package

TUF COMPONENTS

TUF CHOKES
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, helping to improve system stability.

TUF CAPACITORS
+20% temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.

TUF MOSFETs
Certified military-grade MOSFETs with lower RDS(on)*.
* Lower RDS(on) results in better power efficiency and reduced heat generation.

TUF LANGuard: Best surge protection
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.

PERFORMANCE LEVEL UP

VRM THERMAL ENHANCEMENT: Improved Power Delivery, Cooling and Efficiency
TUF B450-PRO GAMING has an enhanced VRM and heatsink to improve cooling performance. New alloy chokes provide higher power-conversion, lower power-dissipation and better temperature control for more efficient operation. Improved voltage tuning further increases performance. An optimized VRM layout and a larger VRM heatsink with bigger thermal pads that offer improved conductivity deliver increased heat dissipation, slower temperature build-up and better overall cooling efficiency.

FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLS: GPU Temperature Sensing
System temperatures are key to a stable gaming rig ― especially GPU temperatures. TUF Gaming motherboards include Fan Xpert 4 Core software that's able to intelligently control system fans based upon the input of multiple sensors, including the temperature of ASUS graphics cards*. This ensures that your TUF Gaming system stays perfectly cooled, no matter how long you play.
* ASUS GeForce 700 and later cards supported.

Fan Xpert 4 Core
ASUS TUF B450-PRO GAMING features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 Core and our award-winning UEFI BIOS.

  • Multiple temperature sources
    With Fan Xpert 4 Core you're able to control system fans based on inputs from up to three temperature sources. For example, Fan Xpert 4 Core can be set to spin up the chassis fans in response to the GPU temperature. So, when the gaming action heats up, additional cooling kicks in — just when you most need it. Choose your temperature sources and thresholds, from motherboard and CPU to GPU, and leave Fan Xpert 4 Core to do the rest
  • All-in-one water-cooling set
    Enables full control of PWM or DC water pumps, perfect for both custom and self-contained cooling setups
  • 4-Pin PWM / DC Fan
    Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans
  • Smart Protection
    A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and overcurrent

DDR4 SUPPORT

TUF Gaming motherboards are subjected to stringent tests to ensure they're ready for any gaming environment. That foundation is backed by extensive validation lists that include memory kits for a range of budgets. Whether you're building a gaming PC that hits the performance sweet spot or aiming for sensible specs, it's easy to pick the right kit for your TUF Gaming rig.

GAME YOUR WAY

Gaming Audio: DTS CUSTOM FOR GAMING HEADSETS

Utilizing advanced emulation techniques to create positional cues via stereo headphones, DTS Custom takes onboard audio to a new frontier. With three presets ― Aerial, Soundscape, and Tactical ― for different genres, you'll have a distinct advantage in every game.

  • Soundscape Mode
    The ideal audio envelope for MMO, RPG, action and horror games — your ears will put you in the center of the action
  • Aerial Mode
    Experience audio as though hovering above the game world, with sound coming from ahead — perfect for MOBA, RTA, strategy and sports titles
