ASUS ROG Strix Z390-F GAMING ATX Motherboard

CPU and Cooling Aware

The new AI overclocking feature helps users find the optimum operating point for their CPU by dynamically estimating a minimum CPU voltage for their target frequency.
CPU Overclocking Potential: Instantly estimates the overclocking potential of your CPU upon first boot.
Cooling Capability: Cooler score dynamically tracks CPU power draw, fan duty cycle, and temperature to evaluate the cooling capability of your system.

For the Advanced User

The Ai Overclocking feature has been thoughtfully integrated into the UEFI BIOS to allow advanced users to easily and quickly dial in their overclocking settings.
Ai OC guide: The AI OC Guide can be called at any time by pressing F11 to provide detailed information regarding each of the AI Overclocking parameters as well helpful tips to prevent misuse.
Prediction: The prediction values are fixed on the left-hand panel, so overclocking estimate are ready at a moments notice.

For the Intermediate Users

The AI Overclocking button in AI suite allows users to easily access the AI Overclocking feature without ever touching the BIOS, while leaving flexibility to calibrate their system using their own preferred stress tests.

Ai + 5-Way Optimisation, Upgraded for Novices

5-Way Optimization, revamped with the AI Overclocking feature, offers a complete one-click solution for novices. The built-in stress testing process automatically gauges and dials in an accurate cooler score, while the rest of the process helps tune other parameters such as fan curves.
TPU Insight: The OS-level overclocking tool has been updated with the AI Overclocking prediction values to allow for easy experimentation with different settings
EPU Guidance: Users can set a threshold and EPU will balance temperatures and performance.

The Finest Power, Digitally Controlled

Digital power control and array of DrMOS power stages ensure the ROG Strix Z390 series have the muscle to control Intel’s latest CPUs.
DrMOS: The ROG Strix Z390-E and Strix Z390-F Gaming’s CPU VRM utilizes DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that Intel’s processors demand. Power efficiency will increase up to 10%, compare to industry standard.
Capacitor and Choke: Superior choke and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperature and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.
DIGI+ VRM: The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) IS one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and clean power delivery to processor.
The Strix Z390 series uses high-quality thermal pads to help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to heatsinks that have ample surface area to deal with the power demands of all processors.
And for those who want to push their rig to the limit, Strix Z390-E Gaming bundled an additional fan and default onboard fan bracket that helps keep temperatures under tight control.

Unleash DDR4 Performance, Designed to Break Performance Barriers

Integrated OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across PCB layers to reduce vias, and it also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. To further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, a highly customized T-Topology layout allows memory speeds of DDR4-4266* and beyond with all slots populated.
*Actual spec may vary depending on different models.

Re-imagined from the Ground Up

To provide Intel’s latest CPUs unfettered access to memory bandwidth, we’ve reimagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up.

Let Your SSD Scream at Speeds up to 32Gbps

Dual PCIe Gen3 M.2: ROG Strix series motherboards are equipped with dual PCIe Gen 3 x4 M.2 slots, offering NVMe SSD RAID support and a great performance boost.
Intel IRST and Optane Memory Ready: Create NVME RAID via two M.2 slots and the PCIe x16 slots to enjoy the world's fastest data-transfer speeds.

M.2 Heatsink, Keeps Your Drive Cool, Makes Your Board Cooler

To keep M.2 SSD drives cool and maintain stable performance, ROG Strix Z390-E gaming is equipped with two dedicated M.2 heatsinks. The M.2 heatsink perfectly chills M.2 SSD and prevent dramatic performance throttle.

Fan Xpert 4, Use GPU Temps as a Source for Fan Speeds

Individual fans can be linked to multiple sensors, including the GPU diode on compatible graphics cards. This allows system cooling to respond to varied workloads, like gaming sessions that disproportionately heat up the GPU and rendering tasks that hammer the CPU.

2x2 802.11ac Intel WiFi with MU-MIMO

ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming features the latest Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 MU-MIMO and wide 160MHz channels, for wireless speeds of up to 1.73Gbps.
