Innovative and Creative
Designed Tough. Built to last
A mark of new era. With the next era of technological progress, we challenged ourselves to evolve into bringing a completely new design language to TUF line of motherboards. By harnessing our best technology paramount design credentials, SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 envisions futuristic fighting forces, with sleek, stealthy Thermal Armor reimagined in black and metal greyto make a powerful statement of both high style and extreme strength.
With a design Inspired by an armored cockpit, see the power and act on the alerts, with a clear indication of five key boot actions.
Strengthen your ability. Totally boosted airflow.
TUF Thermal Armor is more than a futuristic shield: it employs dual fans to provide maximum airflow and rapid cooling board-wide, and a new interior shunt design to boost air cooling to the M.2 slot. Reversible-airflow technology blows dust up and away from the heatsink VRM, while the exclusive flow-valve design controls the heat-pipe's air contact — great for liquid-cooling setups.
Improves rigidity and cooling behind the board
SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 delivers great strength and cooling via exclusive TUF Fortifier. A reinforced backplate ensures that the motherboard doesn't buckle under the weight of heavy graphics cards and CPU coolers, minimizing the risk of damaged circuitry from bowing and bending. TUF Fortier even reduces internal temperatures by up to 13°C — an 18% improvement on the previous design!
ASUS PRO Clock technology
A dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator designed for 6th-generation Intel® processors that allows overclocked base clock frequencies up to 400MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS Turbo Processor Unit (TPU), to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — granting an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.
The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, the EZ and Advanced Modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.
Check up your storages devices' Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (SMART) logs to gauge reliability, and even determine if they're about to fail.
EZ Tuning Wizard– OC and RAID
Select your hardware and apply different scenarios to tune system performance, or streamline your RAID configuration for faster data retrieval and backups!
Quickly find tuning options and add preferred tools to the list.
The total cooling commander
ASUS TUF engineers have forged TUF ICe, a dedicated processor that monitors onboard temperature sensors and fan speeds for ultra-accurate cooling — whether you're adjusting settings manually or using the automatic one-click optimization via Thermal Radar 2 and TUF Detective 2.
Thermal Radar 2
Instant fan tuning. Complete system cooling
Thermal Radar 2 now has 13 fan connectors and is able to connect with TUF Detective 2 wirelessly for fan control via your smartphone or tablet. Moreover, multiple onboard sensors and the bundled thermistor cable let you monitor graphics card temperatures and other key components in real time, so you can adjust manually or optimize automatically with one click.
TUF Detective 2
System management at your fingertips
A free companion app puts detailed system information and a user-friendly interface at your fingertips – right on your smartphone or tablet. You're able to detect and diagnose errors and adjust your system operation with touchscreen ease. Moreover, you can control your fan and monitor your system wirelessly via the app. Your PC doesn't even need to be switched on for you to make use of the app!
You demand 24/7 durability, so we've delivered! TUF motherboards undergo the industry's most-punishing tests to ensure they're ready for permanent duty in all scenarios. In our development labs we heat them, chill them, bend them, shock them and drop them — so you know that your TUF motherboard is certified for 24/7 durability!
Repel the Dust. Extend the lifespan
TUF design protects back I/O ports, expansion and memory slots, and prevents dust and other airborne particles from entering critical connectors. Dust Defenders guards against dust build up, helping your PC perform in an optimal and stable state for longer.
TUF ESD Guards 2
2X Stronger ESD protection for extended component lifespan
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. TUF ESD Guards 2 technology is tested to standards that are 2X higher than industry standards and exclusive pin-level on specific rear IO connectors* testing is 30% higher than previous TUF standard, ensuring electrostatic discharges are properly grounded from all onboard connectivity — and that means greater component longevity.
Ultimate-speed 10Gb/s with USB 3.1 onboard
With one USB 3.1 Type-A port and one reversible USB 3.1 Type-C for the very fastest USB connections, you'll experience data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbit/s — or twice as fast USB 3.0. USB 3.1 is completely backward-compatible with your existing USB devices, and you'll be all set for USB 3.1's breakneck speeds. And ASUS-exclusive USB 3.1 Boost technology automatically accelerates USB 3.1 performance even further!
Turbo LAN with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology adds even more lag-reducing support and intuitive user interface. It allows you to lower lag with no expert knowledge – by up to 1.45X! If you're a tweaker, use Advanced Mode for hardcore controls.
