Built to Take the Strain

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.

3.Upgraded
Chokes
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

Heatsinks

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

Heatsinks

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

Networking

M.2 Socket with E Key Integrated with Intel® wireless-AX/AC technology, M.2 supports CNVi/PCIe/USB mode to build a faster and more cost-effective WiFi and Bluetooth® 5.1 solution.* *Bluetooth 5.1 will be ready in Windows 10 build 19041 or later.

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.

ASUS ROG STRIX Z490-F GAMING, Intel Z490, S 1200, DDR4, SATA3, Dual M.2, SLi/CrossFire, 2.5GbE, USB 3.2, ATX is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best motherboard I have owned I have not built a PC for a while so I decided to upgrade to the new i9 processor so needed a new motherboard. I have always liked ASUS motherboards and decided to spend a bit extra and get this ROG motherboard. I was so impressed by the build quality of the motherboard, it feels so solid and just looks amazing. I like the fact that it has heat sinks for the M2 drives with an optional mount for a small fan above them aswell, I had no issues with getting my optane memory working. The lighting works really well, I have an RGB strip under my desk and it synchronises perfectly. You even get a sheet of stickers including stickers for the battery to disguise it so it doesn’t spoil the look of this beautiful motherboard. I will definitely be buying another ROG motherboard when it is time to upgrade again. Would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features on the Asus ROG Z490-F Ended up buying this with the new comet lake i5 10600k and was easy to build! Managed to sync up all of my RGB components to AURA sync and it looks incredible! 100% recommend this motherboard on all builds :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Upgrade With the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 my PC needed an upgrade to keep up with the processing power this game requires. Paired with a Intel 10700K and currently a 1070ti this motherboard is more than worth the money paid. Easy to overclock and enough fan headers to connect the extra RGB fans to finish the look. Can't recommend this motherboard enough.
Date published: 2020-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed to get up to speed Paired with an i5-10600k, replacing my old Maximus VIII. Exactly what I've come to expect from the RoG series, nice looking, solid board just waiting to be overclocked.
Date published: 2020-08-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Offers just what a gamer needs. I've paired this with an i7-10700K and an EVGA RTX 2070 Super ultra XC with 32 GB of Corsair Vengeance 3200 MHz RAM, and so far it runs everything on ultra and high with no problems. Overclocking the CPU was dead easy as I chose to do it with the UEFI bios integrated AI that chose the correct settings for my setup and now I am running at 4.9 on all cores and 5.3 on single core performance which is more than anyone needs realistically. Ample upgradeability choices with 6 sata ports, posibility for SLI video cards and 2 M.2 slots with heatsinks. The included RGB STRIX logo is also a nice addition as I use mine for temp indicator for the CPU. It might also feel a bit thick compared to others because of the heatsinks on the top and it is a possibility that it gets in the way of big AIO radiators but as long as you can mount one in the front that's no issue.
