Product information
The feature-packed Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AMD ATX Motherboard with AM3+ socket has been designed with military-standard components and is compatible with ultra-fast AMD processors and Windows 8.


Military certified components make up this Asus motherboard. The TUF Chokes contain a powerful alloy material that supports up to 25% more current than conventional components, with lower noise pollution and extreme durability.

Achieve superb stability and enhanced performance too with the help of the Digi + Power Control, with digital voltage controllers for accurate voltage tuning of the CPU and DRAM.

Cool components

Keep your components cool thanks to the TUF CeraM!X Heatsink Coating technology, which disperses heat over a large surface area. Ceramics work to conduct heat away from the circuit, so you can achieve better motherboard performance, with an extended life.

Monitor critical areas of the Asus motherboard with The TUF Thermal Radar. The radar monitors temperature and adjusts fan speed to maintain a cool temperature and avoid overheating.

Safe and secure

Experience safe and successful booting with MemOK! - a push of a button is all you need to patch memory issues and dramatically improve boot success.

Protect your Asus motherboard from unexpected electrostatic discharges (ESD) with the anti-static chip, a protective design and I/O shield to stop potentially damaging effects from sudden surges.

ASUS exclusives

Asus includes a range of enhanced features on the motherboard, such as super fast USB 3.0 and extra SATA 6 GB/s ports.

You can update BIOS in a flash with the USB BIOS Flashback – simply plug in a USB flash drive containing the BIOS file, press the flash button for three seconds and the UEFI BIOS will then automatically update.

Link up all your devices including tablets, smartphones and laptops with Remote Go!. Using this application you can manage your PC from a smartphone or tablet or share files between devices and more.

Achieve the perfect set up with quality components, all-round compatibility and durability with the Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AMD ATX Motherboard.
