BTF vs. Advanced BTF: What is the difference?

The ASUS ecosystem of BTF components gives users plenty of options as they plan their hidden-connector builds. With the combination of a BTF chassis and a BTF motherboard, users can tuck away nearly all the cables that connect directly to the motherboard, including the cables that supply power to the motherboard, connect 2.5-inch SATA drives, hook up case fans, and connect front-panel buttons and I/O.

But that is not quite all the cables in a modern PC build equipped with a powerful graphics card. GPUs often require more power than the PCIe® x16 slot can supply, so they require users to connect a PCIe power cable. For users that would prefer to hide that wire as well, ASUS offers the Advanced BTF approach. Advanced BTF motherboards include a graphics card high-power slot ready to supply all the power that a BTF graphics card needs. Users will need a card with a graphics card high-power (GC-HPWR) gold finger in order to build an Advanced BTF PC.

Motherboard and chassis options for a BTF PC

The BTF ecosystem of PC components ranges from affordable options well within the reach of most builders to cutting-edge components designed for PC enthusiasts ready to push all boundaries. The most budget-friendly BTF motherboards are the TUF Gaming B760M-BTF WiFi and TUF Gaming B760M-BTF WiFi D4. These B-series motherboards deliver incredible value for any builder who desires the effortless performance of an Intel® Core™ 14th gen processor but does not intend to take advantage of CPU overclocking. While they do not go toe-to-toe with high-end ASUS Z790 options, these microATX motherboards might surprise users with their rich feature set. They offer a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot that is ready for the best graphics cards, plus a trio of onboard PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots to make it easy to build a spacious and speedy storage array. In addition, they feature fast networking with WiFi 6 and a 2.5 Gb Ethernet port.

Since the TUF Gaming B760M-BTF WiFi and TUF Gaming B760M-BTF WiFi D4 hide all their connectors on the underside of the motherboard, they offer a strikingly clean aesthetic. Their clean lines, inky black color scheme and understated style make them an easy fit with a wide range of components.

Advanced BTF with TUF Gaming

TUF Gaming also gives users the components they need to construct an Advanced BTF build that goes the extra step to hide the PCIe power cables for their graphics card. It starts with a motherboard equipped with the necessary graphics card high-power slot, as in the TUF Gaming Z790-BTF WiFi. This fully loaded board leans into a classy white aesthetic that is a natural fit with the visual themes of BTF. With an enhanced power solution with 16+1+1 power stages, a six-layer PCB, ProCool sockets, alloy chokes and durable capacitors for stable power delivery, it is more than ready for Intel Core processors. It also features WiFi 7 support, a 2.5 Gb Ethernet port, an onboard USB 20Gbps Type-C® port, and a total of four PCIe M.2 slots.

An Advanced BTF build needs a GPU that is ready to receive its power through the graphics card high-power slot. The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER BTF White Edition is the ticket to the hidden-GPU-power-cable party with its GC-HPWR gold finger. What’s more, it features a snowy-white style that perfectly complements the TUF Gaming Z790-BTF WiFi.

Otherwise, it is the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER that users know and love. It delivers a high-end 1440p gaming experience, and its deep 16 GB pool of VRAM makes it well-equipped to handle the VRAM-hungry games that users are starting to see in the gaming market. A generously oversized heatsink, a trio of Axial-tech fans and a vented backplate work together to keep temperatures and fan noise low.

The eye-catching white surfaces of the TUF Gaming Z790-BTF WiFi and TUF Gaming GeFore RTX 4070 Ti SUPER BTF White Edition might get users thinking about a color-matching PC case. For them, ASUS offers the TUF Gaming GT302 ARGB chassis.

Prepped and ready for great out-of-the-box cooling, equipped for wide compatibility with high-performance parts, and thoughtfully constructed inside and out for an easy PC DIY experience, the GT302 ARGB resets expectations for a mainstream case. On top of all that, it includes the motherboard tray cutouts users need to access the connectors on a BTF motherboard.

Dominant power and show-stopping style with an ROG Advanced BTF build

The most powerful and cutting-edge BTF components come from the ROG lineup. With these parts serving as the foundation for a build, users will have more performance, more versatility and bolder style — all in a super-clean Advanced BTF build.

The first BTF motherboard from ROG is none other than the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero BTF. This cutting-edge board is the perfect partner for a high-end Intel Core processor, thanks to its beefy VRM featuring 20 (90A)+1(90A)+2 power stages. Thick VRM heatsinks keep vital circuitry cool under pressure. Across its impressive spec sheet, users will find an impeccable set of features: DDR5 support, a PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, a whopping five onboard M.2 slots (one wired for PCIe 5.0), dual onboard Thunderbolt™ 4 ports, WiFi 7 and more.

The high-end ROG Maximus Z790 Hero BTF motherboard deserves an equally mighty partner; so when ASUS selected the first graphics card to represent ROG on the BTF front, it went straight to the top. The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 BTF Edition graphics card takes the highest-performance ROG Strix GPU and gives it even cleaner aesthetics by swapping out the traditional 16-pin external power connectors for a GC-HPWR gold finger. Without the power cable hanging off the side — and without any follow-up worries about whether the connector is firmly and completely inserted — users will be better able to appreciate everything this potent graphics card has to offer. Built with one of the finest GPU cooling solutions ASUS has ever designed, this large-and-in-charge card stays cool and quiet with its massive heatsink, scaled-up Axial-tech fans and patented vapor chamber. The diecast shroud, frame and backplate add rigidity, and they are vented to maximize airflow and heat dissipation.

Let us wrap up the ROG Advanced BTF build in a chassis that is worthy of the moment. A special edition of the ASUS award-winning chassis, the ROG Hyperion GR701 BTF Edition takes the original’s premium feature set and adds motherboard tray cutouts perfectly positioned for users to access the connectors of their BTF motherboard. It boasts outstanding cooling performance with its dual 420 mm radiator support, four 140 mm fans and built-in fan hub. In addition, it offers plenty of elbow room for even the beefiest of graphics cards, aiding the build process with a 34 mm-deep cable management chamber with a 46 mm-wide routing channel.
