The Fan is Noisy

Eric Fontanella "Fonz", Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: Hopefully this does something good. It's hard to tell if it will. If anything, it will probably support the motherboard and keep it from bending if you have a heavy CPU cooling system. I unplugged the assistant fan because it made too much noise.

Lovely add on kit

D. Gaidasz, Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this for the Asus Gryphon z97 - the updated version of the board this kit was designed for. According to a web search - it is supposed to fit - and it does. It is exactly as advertised - a metal plate to attach to the back of the motherboard to "stiffen" it up to prevent damage while supporting oversized/weight components, a large plastic dust shield/component protector for the front, and a bunch of dust covers for every port and connector on the board.

TUF kit for the Gryphon

ROBERT JAMES SCHESEL, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: going for a ruggedized look on this build and the gryphon board just needs this to complete the build. I only complain that for the cost of this kit...why not include it with the Motherboard.

a really TUF design

pyroguy "blazingflames", Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: With motherboards constantly being exposed to both heat and dust, this nifty little item does what it's designed to do. With the ASUS Sabertooth model, the Thermal Armor Kit for the ASUS Gryphon Z87 motherboard re-enforces it and protects it from not only heat, but dust as well, which also expands the lifespan in return.

Unique and useful, but loud and heavy.

SPENCER D., Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: This kit is well worth the money and installation time, with a couple small issues Pros: The metal back plate makes this board solid, even more solid than its Z87 Sabertooth cousin. With this armor kit, the board will not sag under the weight of heavy graphics cards or a large CPU cooler. It also stiffens up cases that have some frame flex due to large cable management holes in the motherboard tray. Makes the board look extremely unique.

Great!

CH, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Living in a hot humid climate that kills electronic stuff in no time, I wanted something designed to be tough and durable. So far no problems, easy to install, and the attention to detail they've given to its construction give confidence that it will do the job.

fan broke after a month

TOMO, Amazon
8 December 2013
  • Summary: Fan broke after a month. It should be more long life, since this kit is targeting a heavy duty. I remove the fan, but I am not sure this armor (without fan) might cause heat problem or not...

Gryphon Armor Kit

Avg_Joe, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: Simple to use the kit. Includes covers for every port, as well as expansion slost. Really stiffens up the motherboard, and makes the install look very clean. Not sure how it helps with airflow, as I installed it in a built from scratch system, and didn't have any reference prior to this being installed. It does look awesome though.
