ROG Strix Z490 E-Gaming 10th Generation Intel ATX Motherboard from ASUS

ROG Strix Z490 E-Gaming

Get Yourself off to a Great Start Introducing the ROG Strix Z490 E-Gaming Motherboard from ASUS. The ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming motherboard is designed to cope with the demands of 10th Generation Intel® Core™ processors, with boosted power delivery and an optimised cooling design providing more surface area for heat dissipation. ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming features AI enhancements and intuitive dashboards to help you overclock and tweak various parameters easily. Performance aside, Strix Z490-E Gaming catches the eye, sporting cyberpunk inspired aesthetics including a mirrored stainless steel finish.

Power Delivery Enhancements

POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. Our latest VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.

1.8-pin ProCool II power connector The ProCool II socket is built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines and have a metal armour for improved heat dissipation. The connector's lower impedance helps prevent hotspots and improves reliability.

2. 14+2 DrMos
Power Stage
ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming utilises 14+2 DrMOS power stages to combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors demand.

Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.

Unprecedented Thermal Dominance


1. Fan Bracket
& MOS Fan
A bundled fan bracket and additional MOS fan provide additional cooling to areas around the VRM as you push your build to its limits.

2. MOS Heatsink with U-shaped Heatpipe The U-shaped design allows rapid and even heat transfer from the VRM to the extended MOS heatsink for better performance and wattage resistance. In addition, the MOS heatsink provides a large contact area for MOSFETs and chokes.​

3. Extended VRM heatsinkThe extended heatsink at the end of heatpipe increases thermal mass to offset the additional heat generated by high voltage, lowering temperatures by up to 5°C

4. Dual M.2 Heatsinks The M.2 heatsinks keep the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.

ROG Smart AI Overclocking

AI Overclocking

Intelligent AI Control Our ROG engineers developed and extensively-tested intelligent software solutions to ensure your system stays in optimal condition.​

AI OverclockingTuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each system.

AI CoolingAI Cooling automatically manages and controls motherboard connected fans, ensuring the most efficient settings depending on the current system load and temperature.

AI NetworkingGameFirst VI optimises and organises network bandwidth, effectively reducing jitter and eliminating spike lag to ensure smooth online gameplay.

Support for up to Two M.2 Drives

M.2 Support

Maximum Storage CompatibilityTwo M.2 slots are available, with one supporting both SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 modes, and the other supporting PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe. Together, they give you the fastest and most-flexible M.2 interface available.

The Future of Home-Networking


Wi-Fi 6 (AX201) Onboard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast network speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.

INTEL 2.5G ETHERNETOnboard 2.5G Ethernet gives your wired connection a boost, with up to a 2.5X improvement over standard Ethernet connections for faster file transfers, smoother lag-free gaming and high-res video streaming.

This is High Quality Audio

SupremeFX audio

SupremeFX Built-in SupremeFX audio technology ensures pristine audio. It provides a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And if you're using a gaming headset, the front panel output is driven by two op amps to preserve audio quality.

D.I.Y Friendly


Pre-Mounted I.O ShieldROG’s patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install the motherboard.


Q-Code Diagnostic codes provide a reference for fast and easy look up of common installation and component problems.


FlexKeyThe front-panel header lets you customise the reset button on the front-panel of your chassis to provide quick access to your choice of Aura lighting controls, DirectKey or system reset.


BIOS Flashback™ BIOS Flashback™ is the simplest and safest (UEFI) BIOS update method. Simply drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32 formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS Flashback port and press the button. Updates can even be performed without having memory or a CPU installed.

ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-E GAMING, Intel Z490, S 1200, DDR4, SATA3, Dual M.2, SLi/CrossFire, 2.5GbE/ax Wifi, USB 3.2, ATX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again! Extremely feature-packed motherboard goes well with my Intel 10850k and syncs seamlessly with other RGB products even from different brands. Updates all drivers on first boot, very intuitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top-notch gaming motherboard with built-in Wifi and Bluetooth One of the advantages of the E Gaming over some other Asus Z490 motherboards is the onboard Intel AX201 Wifi 6 (802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.1. It is very useful to be able to simply attach the antenna and connect to the network without the restrictions of a LAN cable. Wifi performance is excellent. The same is true for the Bluetooth. There are other conveniences - the full array of USB ports of all current varieties including Type C, the excellent onboard sound, BIOS flashback and the integral I/O shield. And yes, there are RGB headers including the Gen 2 addressable variety which can be configured with the AURA Sync software. Like all ROG Strix boards the real purpose of this board is to extract as much performance as possible from the Intel CPU. To do this a variety of BIOS options are available. On one level the whole process can be fully automatic, with a choice of the Intel defaults or the performance enhancing Asus settings. Asus also provides a significant degree of automatic overclocking of the processor and/or memory. Alternatively the manual controls are there to replace the automation or fine-tune the auto-generated settings. All of this is backed up with high quality power supply components and extensive heatsinking of the components involved. The E Gaming is not entirely without flaws. The automatic overclocking tends to set the CPU voltage at too high a level leading to excessive processor temperatures. A good AIO cooler could be the answer but in practice it may be better to resort to manual tweaking to rectify this. Although only a minor issue, it would also have been nice if the Wifi antenna had a magnetic base to hold it in place on the top of the case. These points aside, be in no doubt that this board offers a formidable array of capabilities and absolutely top-notch performance. In short, Gaming by name, Gaming by nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great board! Full of all the features you need. Great BIOS, super fast wi-fi and Ethernet, easy to troubleshoot, plenty of headers and great overclocking potential. One of the few boards coming out right now that has no guaranteed PCIe 4.0 support, be aware of this if you’re planning on upgrading when 11th gen comes out. Faultless board nonetheless, very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic motherboard I've tried to get Asus RoG motherboards for every build and I've recently bought this for my latest. It looks amazing, has a superb layout and comes packed with features. RGB features look excellent and work well with Corsair Software. Running a 10700k at 5.1 with no issues, ASUS UEFI and automatic overclocking are great features and easy to use, even for a total beginner.
