ASUS’s TUF or The Ultimate Force series motherboards are typically reserved for higher-end chipsets, but ASUS has just announced a TUF B85 motherboard. The TUF Trooper B85 is built on the B85 express chipset and supports Intel’s 4th and 5th generation Intel Core processors. Of course being a TUF board you get the reliability of it being rigorously tested and all of the TUF components.
Honestly when I saw this yesterday I thought it was an April Fools joke, but apparently it is not. ASUS will be releasing a GeForce GTX 790 Turbo in white.

Typically ASUS is the #1 motherboard manufacturer, they always ship more units than their competitors. Trailing behind is always Gigabyte, but it looks like they were able to claim the #1 spot for the first quarter of 2015.

Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have MathMilitaryModding’s “ASUS STRIX” build. ASUS’s Strix brand has been around for about a year now and MathMilitaryModding has done a great scratch build showcasing the brand! The build features a completely scratch-built case of aluminum panels and even a custom acrylic bottom that has two SSD mounts and a watercooling channel. This is the first build that we have seen to use rigid carbon fiber tubing in the custom loop. Great detail all around!
