ASUS today announced TUF Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1, an enduringly-tough new ATX motherboard with many exclusive TUF features, including trailblazing TUF Thermal Armor and TUF Fortifier technologies, TUF ICe, TUF Thermal Radar 2 and TUF Detective 2 for ultimate cooling, strength and easy monitoring and control. The new Intel® Z170 Express-based motherboard for 6th-generation Intel Core™ processors also boasts bang-up-to-date connectivity with both USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and reversible Type-C on board, and delivers 24/7 durability with military-grade TUF Components, upgraded TUF ESD Guards 2 to fend off electrostatic discharge and a five-year warranty for complete peace of mind.

Designed tough, built to last: Thermal Armor, TUF Fortifier and Dust Defenders. TUF Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1 heralds a completely new design language for the ASUS TUF motherboard line, with the sleek, stealthy Thermal Armor reimagined in black and gunmetal grey. Thermal Armor employs dual fans to provide maximum airflow and rapid cooling board-wide, reducing temperatures in the area around the voltage-regulator module (VRM) by up to 20°C. It even includes a new interior shunt design to boost air cooling to the M.2 slot. The innovative design beneath the armor strengthens the PCI Express® (PCIe®) slots to minimize the risk of damage.

Is there a reason they wouldn't?

There was a recent 10+ page Asus warranty fiasco thread where Asus made endless mistakes and kept telling a guy with a Sabertooth board there was no 5 year warranty.

That interior shunt on the armour to help cool the M.2 slot sounds interesting. I imagine they had to do something or it'd get quite toasty in there.

Enlighten me, please! I work with thermistors on a daily basis, of all types.

Hello

Most Super I/O chips are designed for either NTC or dual current temperature sensors. The majority of PTC thermistors (excluding silistors which are normally more expensive than NTC) work best in designs for over-temperature control such as motors and battery charging.
