ASUS ROG STRIX Z790-A GAMING WIFI II Intel ATX Motherboard
GET READY FOR THE NEWEST GENERATIONThe ROG Strix Z790-A Gaming WIFI II comes with a robust VRM topped with a stout silver heatsink that comfortably articulates power for the latest Intel® 14th Gen Core processors, while PCIe 5.0, WiFi 7, and high-speed USB flesh out the board's fluency across a variety of disciplines.
Teamed Power Architecture
1 - 16(70A)+1(70A)+2
POWER STAGESThe VRM features 16+ 1+ 2 power stages, each rated to handle up to 70 amps.
2 - ALLOY CHOKES
AND DURABLE CAPACITORSHi-end chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, enabling performance that exceeds industry standards.
3 - DUAL PROCOOL II
POWER CONNECTORSProCool II connectors are precision-built to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. A metal sheath improves heat dissipation and lowers electrical impedance.
4 - SIX-LAYER
PCBA 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.
PCIe 5.0The top PCIe 5.0 x16 SafeSlot is well-equipped for the increased size and bandwidth of next-gen graphics cards. Zippy storage options abound with four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, all featuring robust heatsinks to maximize performance..
Push Frequency and Timings to the Max
DIMM FlexDIMM Flex provides enthusiasts with a powerful new way to overclock their DDR5 memory modules. It employs specialized circuitry that can boost performance or address potential stability issues, depending on temperature readings. When temperatures are nominal, it can use the extra headroom to increase speeds and efficiency. And when temperatures increase, it can adjust memory behavior downward to maintain stability.
DDR5 DOMINATIONROG has a long legacy of flexing the fastest memory performance, and DDR5 is no outlier. Thanks to improved signal routing, now enthusiast-grade kits have been driven far beyond the 8 GT/s mark on the Strix Z790-A II, and who knows how far future DIMMs can go? Seasoned veterans can test their mettle by tinkering with the extensive array of tuning options in the UEFI.
AEMP IIASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II (AEMP II) is an exclusive firmware feature that allows users to achieve supreme memory performance and compatibility with optimized clock speeds, even when they're using PMIC-restricted memory modules that do not provide an XMP or EXPO profile. Developed through a flexible training method, AEMP II simplifies the process of fine-tuning memory settings beyond the baseline configuration, all while ensuring system stability.

Expert Thermal Management
1 - VRM HEATSINKSCovering the power solution are two thick heatsinks with strategic airflow channels for increased heat dissipation while powering high-performance Intel 13th and 14th gen processors.
2 - M.2 BACKPLATEAn integrated backplate helps ensure that high-performance drives can deliver peak performance, even when airflow is restricted.
3 - M.2 HEATSINKSHeatsinks cover every slot to help keep onboard NVME SSDs at optimal temperatures for consistent performance and reliability.
Supreme Networking Capability
1 - WIFI 7With Multi-Link Operation (MLO), WiFi 7 can outperform WiFi 6E to deliver faster speeds, higher reliability and increased data transfer efficiency.
2 - Intel 2.5G EthernetLow-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.
ASUS WIFI Q-ANTENNADual transceivers support the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz bands to enable faster throughput, with directional sensitivity to improve signal quality and cover greater distances.
Up to +6% Faster6 GHz
Up to +18% Faster5/2.4 GHz
Improvement compared to previous generation antenna.
Q-ANTENNAWith Q-Antenna, attaching a WiFi antenna to your PC is now easy and fast. Instead of slowly rotating two fasteners until they finally lock in, they just snap into place. Less hassle, and more consistent performance.
PCIe SLOT Q-RELEASEA physical button unlocks the first PCIe slots security latch with one press, greatly simplifying the process of detaching a PCIe card from the motherboard when itâ€™s time to upgrade to a new GPU or other compatible device.
M.2 Q-LATCHThe innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an SSD from an M.2 slot. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive, eliminating the need for a traditional screw.
CLEAR CMOS & BIOS FLASHBACKThe Clear CMOS button quickly resets BIOS settings to factory default. It can also be used to reboot the PC if incorrect BIOS settings have been selected. BIOS FlashBack is a safe and simple way to update BIOS. Just 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.
Armed with all the essentials
The ROG Strix Z790-A GAMING WIFI II delivers next-gen connectivity for ultrafast data transfers and low-latency networking. Those perks are joined by an advanced audio solution that allows you to pick out the smallest cues and home in on your opponents.
