Tweak and Tune Your Way

Wide Range of Performance and Tuning OptionsComprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime Z490 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling you to tweak performance settings to perfectly match the way you work – maximizing your productivity.

Energy Efficiency

All-Around Energy efficiencyThe Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimises your power consumption and maximizes energy savings with a simple Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down any unused I/O controllers.

Flexible Air and Liquid Cooling Control Fan Xpert 4 software provides you with comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AiO) coolers. Whether cooling with air or water, an Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There’s also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans, water pumps and AiO coolers can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.

Fan Expert 4

Precise Digital Power ControlThe Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) gives real-time control over voltage drop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

World Renowned UEFI BIOS

Not just for veteransThe renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

Advanced Mode

Advanced Mode An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various Advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.

Easy Mode

EZ(Easy) ModeEZ mode displays vital settings and stats and also offers guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings — all to help you get your rig up and running in no time.

Get the Best Out of your Board

Robust Power Design

Robust Power DesignWith the Prime Series Z490 Motherboards ASUS have recognised that stable power is essential to squeeze every last drop of performance from your 10th Gen Intel CPU, the Prime Z490M-PLUS is built to cater to the demands of high-core count CPUS with the addition of ProCool connectors that augment the motherboard's link to the PSU with 8+4 pin connectors that pass 12 volts of power directly to the processors and 8+1 DrMOS Power Stages that are capable of delivering the power and efficiency that the latest generation of intel CPUs Demand.

Optimise your Memory with ASUS OptiMem II

Optimem II

Revisions to Trace Routing The Z490 Prime Motherboards now provide unrestricted access to memory bandwidth for 10th Gen CPUs by making some revisions to the motherboards trace routing. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.

Lightning Fast Storage with Dual M.2

Dual m.2

Faster booting and app load times Dual M.2 slots support data-transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps via x4 PCI Express® 3.0 bandwidth, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.

ASUS SafeSlot Protection

safe slot core

PREMIUM ASUS TECHNOLOGY SafeSlot Core+ is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot fortified with a one-piece stainless-steel brace that shields the slot to protect it from damage. The metal cover is tightly secured to the slot with hooks, and the entire assembly is firmly anchored to the PCB with strengthened solder points to provide a secure foundation for heavyweight graphics cards and with a 1.6x stronger retention force and sheering test you can be confident you are protected.
