Arm Your Battlestation
TUF Gaming motherboards are built to survive and thrive on every battlefield. Infused with the military spirit of The Ultimate Force (TUF) and styled to strike fear into the hearts of every enemy, TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II is the perfect foundation for your 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.
Hone your battleskills with exclusive DTS Custom onboard audio. Utilizing advanced emulation techniques to create positional cues via stereo headphones, DTS Custom takes onboard audio to a new frontier. With three presets ― Aerial, Soundscape, and Tactical ― for different genres, you'll have a distinct advantage in every game.
Outshine the competition
A well-tuned system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II features the very latest Intel Ethernet. Intel's LAN has the advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.
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.
Turbo LAN with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology adds even more lag-reducing support and an intuitive user interface, so you'll reduce lag by up to 1.45X — with no expert knowledge. It even includes Game mode to prioritise game-related data transmissions, smoothing network operations every time you play!
Make Your Memory Go Faster
ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements lead to more headroom for overclocking and improved stability, allowing DDR4 memory speeds of 4000MHz with all slots populated — and even beyond!
One Click Overclocking
You don't need to be a technical expert to experience exhilarating overclocking performance. TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II incorporates the OC Tuner feature for efficient operation with precise voltage control and monitoring. OC Tuner takes all the hassle out of complex tuning by overclocking your system with a single click — it couldn't be easier!
Dual Onboard M.2 & M.2 Heatsink
TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II features dual onboard M.2 slots, both operating at X4 PCI Express 3.0 to provide a scintillating 32Gbps of bandwidth. The primary slot is placed below the CPU socket, making use of chassis airflow to keep drive temperatures under control. The second sits below the Z370 chipset and is covered by a heatsink that reduces drive temps by as much as 25℃, ensuring peak performance under all scenarios.
Optimized Thermal Design
The TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II 's VRM and inductor array is coupled to a large heatsink that has ample surface area to deal with the thermals of Intel's latest processors.
ENHANCED EATX 8-PIN SOCKET
・ Solid and more durable
・ Prevent hotspots and connector failure
Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. This lowers impedance, which helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.
Fan Xpert 4 Core
TUF Z370-PLUS GAMING II features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 Core and our award-winning UEFI BIOS.
EAZY PC DIY EXPERIENCE
TUF Gaming motherboards offer easy and safe DIY builds by leveraging great design, innovative engineering, and strong partnerships with major component manufacturers. The unrivalled combination of military-grade TUF Components, TUF Protection and the TUF Gaming Alliance means that you can rest assured that your gaming rig will go the distance.
TUF gaming alliance
TUF Gaming Alliance is the marque of collaboration between ASUS and major PC-component manufacturers, including trusted brands like Antec®, Apacer®, Ballistix, Cooler Master®, Corsair®, Deepcool, Enermax, G.Skill, GeIL®, In Win, Scythe, SilverStone, Team Group and XPG. A growing range of compliant parts, from PC cases and power supplies to CPU coolers and DRAM, guarantee both compatibility and aesthetic harmony. We're also continually increasing our partnerships to make the TUF Gaming Alliance ever stronger.
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-molding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
