This stunning board's first appearance was at Computex 2014, where it was exhibited under the codename ‘Sabranco', a portmanteau of Saber and ‘branco' (the Portuguese word for ‘white') — and most every visitor expressed their desire to take it home with them. Now the finished beast is ready for your build and we've called it Sabertooth Z97 Mark S ‘S' to indicate strikingly-white superiority.
More than just a cool military-styled cover, TUF Thermal Armor employs dual fans to provide boosted airflow for rapid cooling. 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!
TUF 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 is proud to be a leading total solution provider. That means we test more than just the product itself — we examine system durability as a whole. Our motherboards undergo extreme temperature variations (thermal shock), extensive Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) tests and many whole-build server-grade stability tests — so you know that your TUF motherboard can be trusted in all conditions.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can happen suddenly, and its damaging effects are easily underestimated. TUF ESD Guards are tested to standards that are 30% higher than industry standards, ensuring electrostatic discharges are properly grounded from all onboard connectivity and that means greater component longevity.
