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.

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

It's pretty cool but mostly for aesthetics

Drew Lankford, Amazon
16 September 2013
  • Summary: The only reason I have this is because I have an obsidian 650D case with the window so my components are in full view when people are in the room. The armor looks pretty cool but aside from that, I don't see much more benefit. The cooling benefits are negligible at best I assume but you do get some thermal sensors with the armor kit as well as a small motherboard fan too so if you use ASUS' AI suite to monitor temps and control things on the mobo, the sensors give you an...

Nice addition to the Gryphon

Brian Steele "www.diysubwoofers.org", Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Nice addition to the Gryphon - gives a nice clean look to the install, and the port plugs will come in handy in an environment is as dusty as my own. I've built a special dust shield for my PC using speaker grille cloth and somehow some dust still finds its way into parts of my system, and in this coastal environment, dust=rust=electronic death. Cost may be a little high for what you get though.
