FORTIFIED STABILITY : ASUS Z87 MOTHERBOARDS

ASUS TUF introduces two Intel® Z87-based motherboards. The ATX Sabertooth Z87 and micro-ATX Gryphon Z87 feature proprietary ASUS-developed thermal designs and military-grade capacitors, chokes, and MOSFETs to deliver the best cooling, stability, and reliability.

GRYPHON Z87 is the 1st mATX TUF board, with Thermal Radar 2 complete system cooling and customizable fan tuning. Military-grade TUF components also guard server-grade system reliability.  (with GRYPHON ARMOR KIT) learn more

SABERTOOTH Z87 fortifies system stability with strengthened backplate, tactical armor and abundant features guard system cooling, reliability and longevity. learn more

TUF Fortifier

Bolsters boards against bending damage

TUF Fortifier adds a strong backplate so the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers. Reduced PCB bowing and bending means an end to potentially damaged circuitry.

With a thermal pad directing heat away from VRM and other key components, TUF Fortifier combines great strength and cooling.

Thermal Armor with Flow Valve

Total airflow-boosting heat dissipation

New generation Thermal Armor features an exclusive flow gate design.

In open state, the flow valve allows cool airflow from downdraft fans into Thermal Armor, maximizing airflow for fan-based thermal setups.

When closed, it focuses air on high-efficiency heatpipes for faster heat removal. This is especially useful for liquid cooling.

This flexibility was created to cater to different cooling arrangements, and make the most of all.

Thermal Radar 2

Complete system cooling, customized fan tuning

With multiple onboard sensors and bundled thermistor cables, you can real-time monitor temperatures for areas around key components other than the motherboard itself. Customizable fan control gives you the flexibility of adjusting fan speeds manually and achieving optimal thermal tuning with one click.

Dust Defenders

Repel the dust, expand the lifespan

TUF design protects back I/O ports, expansion and memory slots plus critical connectors from dust and particles that degrade system performance over time if left unchecked. With a filter to ensure the back I/O fan doesn’t draw dust into the board, Dust Defender guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state longer.

Gryphon Armor Kit

Enjoy great PC DIY plus better system cooling and reliability with GRYPHON Z87

TUF Fortifier

TUF Fortifier adds a strong backplate so the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers. Reduced PCB bowing and bending means an end to potentially damaged circuitry.

Thermal Armor

New Thermal Armor, with its military-styled design, covers the entire motherboard, providing boosted airflow for rapid cool down. The I/O cover fan draws cold air in for extra stability where it counts, helping conduct heat away with the smart shunt design. Newly added custom PCB convection holes provide underside circulation for even greater heat mitigation, denying temperatures room to build up.

Dust Defenders

TUF design helps users extend the life and optimal performance of systems with a special filter and shields that reduce dust build up and prevent interference with contact points.
