TUF X299 Mark 2 is the durable ATX motherboard made for enthusiasts, modders and gamers who demand reliable performance day in, day out. ASUS T-Topology allows memory frequencies that are higher than ever. ASUS-exclusive T-Topology circuit design provides superb memory-overclocking capability to unleash the full power of DDR4 by minimizing coupling noise and signal reflection. Refined manufacturing ensures ultra-consistent quality, minimal crosstalk between custom trace paths, and time-aligned signaling for superior stability and compatibility. SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
