For a couple of years ASUS has been releasing the TUF (The Ultimate Force) series motherboards, which are designed to meet the demands of heavy power users that desire highly stable systems in the most extreme conditions. This line of motherboards goes through more testing than most motherboards, ensuring they can take abuse no matter what environment they are used in. One of the latest motherboards to be added to the TUF series is the Sabertooth 990FX. This AMD based motherboard includes military certified components and a unique heatsink coating technology called CeraM!X.
