From the Manufacturer|Powered by Is the information in this section helpful? Yes / No Overview Ready for hardcore 24/7 operation, the TUF X299 Mark 1 possesses the looks, overclocking durability and optimized cooling The Ultimate Force (TUF) motherboards are famous for. Thermal Armor and SafeSlot provide ducted airflow and PCIe rigidity, while Thermal Radar 3 and TUF Detective 2 provide superior cooling and system monitoring. Designed for 7th generation LGA2066 socket Intel® Core™ X-Series processors to maximize connectivity and speed with dual M.2, front panel USB 3.1 Type-C connection, and Intel® Optane™ Memory compatibility Ultimate Protection with Thermal Radar 3 for customizable total system cooling and a 5-Year Warranty for guaranteed reliability built on Military Grade engineering Dual Patent-pending SafeSlots featuring an injection molding process that integrates metal framing for a stronger, firmly anchored PCIe slot built for heavyweight GPUs Thermal Armor protective shielding with TUF Fortifier backplate and VGA holder provides ducted cooling plus structural rigidity with added protection for the next-generation of graphics cards AURA Sync RGB Lighting features a nearly endless spectrum of colors with the ability to synchronize effects across an ever-expanding ecosystem of AURA Sync enabled products Features Ultimate Cooling More than just a cool and stylish cover, TUF Thermal Armor employs the fan at the PCH area to provide boosted airflow for rapid cooling and make sure temperatures stay low across the board. Thermal Armor can reduce the temperature by up to 20°C +(TBC). TUF X299 Mark 1 has an ultra-efficient heatsink to reduce M.2 SSD temperatures by up to 20°C (TBC). Overclocking Design A dedicated base-clock generator designed for 7th Generation Intel® processors allows overclocked base clock (BCLK) frequencies up to or beyond 425MHz(TBC). This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights. Third-generation ASUS T-Topology also allows memory frequencies that are higher than ever — to 3600MHz and beyond. 24/7 Reliability TUF X299 Mark 1 delivers great strength and cooling via exclusive TUF Fortifier. A reinforced backplate ensures that the motherboard doesnt buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers, minimizing the risk of damaged circuitry from bowing and bending. The VGA holder is designed to minimize the risk of damaged circuitry of VGA and motherboard from bending and prevent slot damage to ensure long term usage. SafeSlot 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 to integrate the slot with fortifying metal support, the slot is then firmly anchored to the board through additional solder points. TUF Components Certified military-grade TUF chokes offer unbeatable durability in order to maximize the lifespan of your system while TUF capacitors offer +20% temperature tolerance and 5x-longer lifetime.
