TUF Gaming: Battle Ready for Your Gaming Rig
TUF Gaming motherboards are built to survive and thrive on every battlefield. Infused with military spirit of The Ultimate Force and styled to strike fear into the hearts of every enemy, TUF B350M-Plus Gaming is the perfect foundation for your micro-ATX battle rig: a solid, durable and camouflaged force that's fit for today's fights, and with the durability to handle multiple upgrades for the campaigns of tomorrow.
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-moulding 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.
DRAM Overvoltage Protection: Short-Circuit Damage Prevention
On-board resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.
DIGI+ VRM: Precision Control for Stable Power
The Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
Stainless Steel Back I/O: 3X Corrosion-Resistance for Greater Durability
TUF's corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panels bonded with chromium oxide have a lifespan that's 3X longer than traditional panels.
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% 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.
Performance Level Up
DDR4 Support: Overclocking Strength in Numbers
The ASUS-exclusive T-Topology memory trace layout ensures signal lines are carefully length-matched, allowing TUF B350M-Plus Gaming to support memory speeds up to DDR4-3200 with all memory slots populated.
Fan Xpert 2+: Advanced Fan Control
With on-board thermal sensors and hardware-level 4-pin/3-pin PWM/DC mode detection, Fan Xpert 2+ ensures every fan achieves the best balance of cooling performance and acoustics.
• Auto-Tuning Mode: Scans fan parameters and tunes fan speeds with a single click.
• RPM Fixed Mode: Allows you to set a fixed fan speed, so you get the cooling and acoustics that you want.
Ultrafast Transfer Speed
10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 On-Board
With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps — or twice as fast as standard USB 3.1 Gen 1!
Speed Up with On-Board M.2 Up to 32Gbps
With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or apps work as fast as possible.
Game Your Way
Gaming Audio: Combined On-Board Features Deliver Elevated Audio
Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything you've ever experienced!
• Audio Shielding: Separates analog/digital signal domains, significantly reducing multi-lateral interference.
