Performance

ASUS Pro Clock II Technology

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 T-Topology

MAKE YOUR MEMORY GO FASTER

ASUS T-Topology allows memory frequencies that are higher than ever — to 4133MHz and beyond. ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design provides superb memory-overclocking capability to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimizing coupling noise and signal reflection. Refined manufacturing ensures ultra-consistent quality, minimal crosstalk between custom trace paths, and time-aligned signaling for superior stability and compatibility.

 

Ultimate Cooling

Thermal Radar 3

INSTANT FAN TUNING, COMPLETE SYSTEM COOLING

Our Thermal Radar 3 software allows you to control connected chassis fans, water pumps, AIOs, and even the fans of ASUS graphics cards — all to provide ultimate cooling performance for gaming and productivity. Multiple onboard sensors also enable the temperatures of key components to be monitored in real time, so you can assess and optimize cooling efficiency.

Instantly optimize the system's entire cooling profile with a single click.

Unleash your PC's full performance potential with the ASUS TurboV Processing Unit (TPU). Besides offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor stats, and adjust overclock parameters, TUF X299 Mark 2 provides additional thermal tuning options – Extreme Tuning and Stress Test — that let you test and optimize system stability and cooling performance.

TUF X299 Mark 2 has customizable settings for its 10 fan headers, offering maximum control over your build's cooling and quietness. You can even monitor, manage and control the fans to create your perfect balance between quietness, cooling and performance.

With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.

TUF X299 Mark 2 Thermal Radar 3 fan management feature has been expanded — allowing custom fan control on ASUS graphics cards* as well as case fans.

An integrated recorder logs critical voltage readings, temperatures and fan speeds over time – so you can review vital stats and make informed decisions for system settings and optimal operation.

24/7 reliability

You demand 24/7 reliability — and we've delivered! TUF motherboards undergo the industry's most punishing tests to ensure they're ready for long-term duty in any environment. In our tests we overheat them, chill them, bend them, shock them and drop them — so you know that your TUF motherboard is certified for 24/7 reliability!

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-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.

TUF ESD Guards 2

2X-STRONGER ESD PROTECTION

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!

* Pin-level testing applies to USB, LAN connectors
