Heavy-duty power delivery and optimized cooling provide the weapons you need to push any gaming build to its limits. Intelligent controls enable easy management of overclocking, cooling and networking settings. And Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation helps ensure crystal-clear in-game communication.


Power Design

Digital power control and an array of power stages provide the muscle needed to control the latest Intel CPUs.


Power Stages

16+1 power stages combine high-side and low-side MOSFETS and drivers into a single package, delivering power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors can take full advantage of.


Alloy Chokes and Durable Capacitors

High-end chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, enabling performance that exceeds industry standards.


8+8 ProCool II Power Connector

ASUS ProCool II connectors are built to tight specifications to ensure full contact with power supply cable wiring. A metal sheath improves heat dissipation, and low electrical impedance helps prevent hotspots and bolsters reliability.


Digi+ Power Control

The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultrasmooth and clean power delivery to the CPU.


Six-Layer PCB

Multi-layered printed circuit board design quickly dissipates heat around the voltage regulators to improve overall system stability and provide the CPU with more overclocking headroom.


Integrated I/O Cover & VRM Heatsinks

Two thick VRM heatsinks connected by a heat pipe and bonded to a pre-mounted metal I/O shield provide ample surface area and mass to handle the power needs of high-performance 12th Gen Intel processors.


Thermal Pads

Specially engineered thermal pads efficiently transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.


Three M.2 Heatsinks

Multiple M.2 heatsinks help maintain onboard M.2 NVME SSDs at optimal temperatures for consistent performance and reliability.


M.2 Backplate

An integrated M.2 backplate helps ensure that high-performance drives deliver peak performance, even when airflow is restricted. ROG Strix Z690 motherboards feature comprehensive cooling options that are configurable via the Fan Xpert 4 tool in Armoury Crate or within the UEFI BIOS.


Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation

This powerful ASUS-exclusive utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone* and incoming audio while preserving voices. Distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises are removed so you can hear and be heard with perfect clarity while gaming or during calls.


ROG AI Overclocking

ROG AI Overclocking is an intelligent utility that helps you get the most out of your build by automatically profiling your CPU and cooling system to predict optimal voltage and frequency settings. Accessible via the AI Suite software in Windows or directly through the UEFI, the intuitive AI Overclocking user interface enables users of all levels. A range of customizable settings are available for seasoned overclockers, and an auto-tuning option is available for beginners.


Designed by Experts

At the heart of AI Overclocking is a proprietary algorithm developed by ROG R&D engineers who worked with world-renowned overclockers to create a tool for users of all levels.


Predictive Edge

An algorithm analyzes your CPU and cooling system, then it leverages that data to intelligently predict optimal settings. Custom-tailored frequencies and voltages are automatically applied to perfect the clock-speed optimization process.


Real-Time Adjustments

Workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw are automatically monitored by the software, and the information is used to make real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.


AI Overclocking in AI Suite

Onboard intelligence lets you automate overclocking with full, flexible control via 5-Way Optimization within AI Suite (in Windows).


AI Overclocking Guide

The AI Overclocking Guide provides detailed information and instructions about how to tune your system manually. It can be accessed by hitting the F11 hotkey.


Core Group Loading

For the high-core-count processors in the Z690 series, AI Overclocking software lists data according to core group. This gives you adaptive control based on the status of core groups, and it provides target frequencies and voltages needed for manual tuning.


AI Cooling

ASUS AI Cooling technology automatically manages and controls motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.


CPU Temperature Detection

AI Cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down.


Automated Optimization

Under stable system loads, the software then automatically lowers fan* speed to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance.
*Fans need to be connected to the following headers for AI Cooling control: CPU_FAN / CPU_OPT / CHA_FAN / M.2_FAN / H_AMP / RAD_FAN.


Ongoing Monitoring

AI Cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current load.


Automatic Tuning

AI Cooling can easily be activated via the Fan Xpert 4 dashboard in ASUS AI Suite 3. Once activated, it will override all manual controls.


Manual Tuning

For those who prefer manual control, AI Cooling provides reference points on a graph that details fan speed in relation to temperature, providing a guide for fan settings.


AI Networking

The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users — beginners, experts, and everyone in between — optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI-enhanced identification and boost technologies to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.
