Product details

The Asus Sabretooth Intel® Z87 ATX Motherboard with Intel® 1150 Socket is part of the hard-wearing TUF series, offering an original design and ultra-high quality components for outstanding stability and broad compatibility.

Robust structure

Reinforced by a TUF Fortifier, the Asus Sabretooth Z87 won't collapse under the weight of heavier graphics cards and CPU cooler. Say goodbye to potential circuit damage thanks to reduced PCB bowing and bending.

Cooler processing

The Asus Sabretooth Z87 ATX Motherboard hasa thermal pad that directs heat away from the VRM and other essential components, so the TUF Fortifier provides exceptional cooling as well as great durability.

Covering the entire board and featuring dual fans, it directs cool air to critical parts with a smart shunt design and dissipates heat rapidly for enhanced stability. A back I/O fan draws in cold air and ejects even further heat.

Heatpipe air contact is controlled with this special flow valve design, making better use of liquid cooling setups. Multiple onboard sensors and bundled thermistor cables let you monitor temperatures in real time for areas around essential components other than the motherboard itself.

With customizable fan control, you get the flexibility of changing fan speeds manually and accomplishing optimum thermal tuning with a single click.

Intelligent port design

The TUF design in the Sabretooth Z87 Motherboard protects the back I/O ports, expansion and memory slots and vital connectors from dust and particles that decrease system performance over time if unaddressed.

A filter ensures that the rear I/O fan doesn't pull dust into the board, while Dust Defenders stops dust building up, letting your PC perform in a stable, optimised state for longer.

You know that the TUF 10k black metallic capacitors and MOSFETs are up to the task since they're screened by seven rigorous military-grade tests, assuring excellent lifespan even under highly demanding conditions.

Better BIOS

The Asus Sabretooth Z87 ATX Motherboard with 1150 Socket features media-renowned UEFI BIOS from Asus for incredibly smooth mouse-controlled graphical BIOS, now featuring more intuitive functions that swiftly take you to favourite BIOS pages and regularly-accessed settings via custom shortcuts.

You'll even be able to write quick notes within the BIOS for future reference, see an activity log for settings changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports.

There's a completely new look for EZ Mode, which user-friendly features upgrades like detailed fan controls, XMP profile settings, SATA information and fast clock adjustment. Create the perfect BIOS experience with these tools.

Made especially for those who frequently access BIOS, the motherboard allows users to easily enter the BIOS when the computer is on standby with the press of a button. This conveniently saves you time during boot-up, since you needn't repeatedly press the DEL key.

Extensive connections

The Sabretooth Motherboard employs Asus USB 3.0 Boost technology which supports UASP USB 3.0 in Windows 8. This great technology significantly increases a USB device's transmission speed up to 170%, which enhances the already rapid performance of USB 3.0.

With Asus software, data rates are automatically accelerated for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without you having to do anything.

Install the Asus Sabretooth Intel® Z87 ATX Motherboard with Intel® 1150 Socket for a rip-roaring set of PC enhancement features.
