ASUS TUF Sabranco Z97 and Sabertooth Z97 MK2 Motherboards Pictured

ASUS made an additions to its TUF (the ultimate force) line of super durable motherboards, with the TUF Sabranco Z97, and the TUF Sabertooth Z97 MK2. "Sabranco," according to ASUS is a combination of the words Sabertooth and branco (Portuguese for white). It's essentially a TUF Sabertooth Z97 MK1, with a milky white PCB, and a thermal armor that features "arctic" military camouflage pattern, used by armed forces operating in snowy conditions. The Sabertooth Z97 MK2, on the other hand, is a lighter variant of the MK1, minus SATA-Express, and a lighter CPU VRM.

I wonder if the whole TUF thing is not for real hard environments but for kids with, p.e., Call of Duty themed cases and matching baseball caps.

That Sabranco is really good looking motherboard. That will need a window on the otherside as well to show off that painted panel.

Allow me to translate.

It says, "men who like camo on motherboard have even smaller penis than we do."

You see a lot of PC enthusiasts custom painting their own thermal armor plates; we think ASUS has caught on to that trend and offering their own alternative option in white, which is nice to see...hope ASUS announces an ETA on these beasts soon...
