ASUS SABERTOOTH X58 Heavy Duty Motherboard Joins Durable TUF Series

The new SABERTOOTH X58 motherboard delivers the latest Intel chipset and support for the fastest processors on the market, including the Intel Core i7-980X, as part of the TUF Series of heavy duty motherboards. It is the latest entry in this ruggedized lineup, providing uncompromised durability and the utmost reliability to users who demand 24/7, high-intensity usage.

As the name implies, TUF Series motherboards put reliability and endurance above all else. They are built with more rigorous stress testing than normal motherboards, and ship with added longevity measures. TUF Series motherboards are the most reliable and stable models on the market, making them ideal for tough, heavy duty tasks where compatibility is critical.

True to its TUF Series form, the SABERTOOTH X58 offers superior stability and reliability, putting it at the level of server and mainframe boards in terms of durability.

Covering all the Essentials of Reliability
The key emphasis for TUF Series motherboards lies in enabling prolonged use. The SABERTOOTH X58 can keep going round the clock with no pause thanks to its meticulous thermal design, which means heat and stress are not obstacles. This new thermal design revolves around CeraM!X Heatsink Coating Technology, using revolutionary ceramic application on vital motherboard surfaces and components to ensure unrivalled heat resistance and dissipation. Thus, it is the perfect choice for server functionality and extreme, steady reliability. CeraM!X application has never been done on a motherboard before the ASUS TUF Series entered service.

Reliability Tested to Military Grade
The SABERTOOTH X58 from ASUS uses heavy duty materials and parts to ensure truly unmatched capabilities in terms of stability, reliability, endurance, and value.
The chokes, solid state capacitors and MOSFETs have all been tested under the most arduous of conditions and harsh environments based on military standards, providing users with a proven heavy duty solution.

TUF Series motherboards are ruggedized from the ground up, so they can handle more than just long-haul usage and heat. They are also tested to server-grade standards and can stand up to humidity and ambient temperatures to an exponentially larger extent than normal motherboards. As a consequence, they are long-life products users can install with complete confidence.

Being strong does not mean TUF Series motherboards compromise added features. The SABERTOOTH X58 ships with new data transfer standards USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB/s, so it offers some of the latest innovations in addition to superior strength. It is a complete package of guaranteed reliability and compatibility.

Sweet they're not giving up on the TUF boards!

I wonder if they're gonna release another P55 with USB 3 and SATA 6GB/s.

I'd sooner have a poo coloured board in my case than baby blue like GB use. :banghead:


Everyone knows blue is far over-rated and its use will attract 90% noobs, 8% colour blind..the 2% is error margin.

I think the color scheme is fine, subdued and it's original, and more often than not you use your motherboard you're looking at the screen, not staring at your case peering through the acrylic unless the game or application your playing/running is so boring you've got nothing better to do...if this allows for crazy high and stable overclocks and reliability for x58 this could very well be my next build and first i7 setup...

Agree, can be a hard choice between the latest rampage extreme III and this.

Nice looks, not my taste. Anyway you should consider this as pure marketing: "military" stands for best technology, that's hard to beat. Of course this is pure bullshit.

Let's face it: nearly every single mainboard out on the market has no style! The last line, the blue ones, is ugly as hell. Some of the newer EVGA-Boards are looking good, simple in style, with much black. But the market is missing some really nice looking boards. Let's say with some kind of aluminum-finish, chrome-parts, whatever is looking more serious than this pieces of child toys. I don't want to have those multicolored pieces in my expensive and good looking Lian Li anymore. Manufacturers, give me Black, give me metal, give me chrome!

All pc equipment SHOULD be designed with 24/7 usage in mind. Period! Users shouldn't be fooled into believing this is a luxury or enthusiast feature.

Compatibility is always critical. Anything less than compatible (in a standardized environment) is a flaw, a detractor.

So in plain speech Asus headlines should read:
Asus releases non-castrated decent quality X58 motherboard.

+1. I think Asus is taking this 'ruggedized' thing a bit too far. I can see that in conjunction with a notebook but a motherboard. What am I gonna do? Drop my tower on the rare chance that I may be moving it 1ft? Or use it a room that is 40C ambient?
And if they're selling it on 'durability', that's just more BS..any premium motherboard should stand the rigours of 24/7 use. That's a given.

This would be rather good for people in countries with Ambient temperatures of 40+c don't you think ;)

I imagine gaming and internet cafes in India would love these!

Crazy 4 TPU!!!
The colors are pretty bland, but on the other hand the color scheme looks a hell of a lot better then some.

I actually kind of like the plain look, i'd rather have them focus more on performance and features then how it looks inside my case.

But that's just me.:)
