Built for Gaming and Design. TUF X299 Mk2 Motherboard From ASUS

TUF X299 Mk2 Motherboard from ASUS
Intel 2066 Powered PC Motherboard. TUF Mark2

This durable ATX motherboard is the TUF X299 Mark 2 from ASUS’ 2066 socket series. It boasts incredible stability and efficient cooling. The TUF X299 motherboard has been designed for enthusiasts, modders and gamers, or anybody who may require reliable performance day in, day out. Built with industry leading cooling control and temperature monitoring, high-speed transfer rates and overclocking in mind, ASUS’ ATX TUF Mk2 is an incredibly capable motherboard.

ASUS Pro Clock II Technology

X299 Pro Clock II
Dedicated design for overclocking

TUF X299 Mark 2 includes a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator to extend CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and BCLK overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from the Intel Core X-series processors.

ASUS TUF X299 Mk2 Protection

TUF X299 Mk2 motherboard Protection
Protect your graphics card investment

Safeslot: SafeSlot (patent pending) 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 the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

ESD Guards 2: ESD Guards 2 protects TUF X299 Mark 2 from damaging electrostatic discharge. ESD Guards 2 is tested to levels that are 2X higher than industry standards. We also perform pin-level* testing at 30%-higher ESD levels than previous TUF standards. Our stringent tests mean greater component longevity for your TUF motherboard!

ESD Guards 2: Certified military-grade TUF chokes offer unbeatable durability in order to maximize the lifespan of your system. +110% temperature, tolerance and 1.5X-longer lifespan. Certified military-grade MOSFETs with lower RDS(on), lower RDS(on) results in better power efficiency and reduced heat generation.

Military Standard Low RDS(on)

Onboard M.2 Port
