ROG Maximus Z690 FORMULA 12th Gen Intel ATX Motherboard

ASUS Z690 Formula

Breathtaking aesthetics, Stunning Performance DIVERSITY TO THE MAXIMUS. That’s what the latest Formula brings to the acclaimed ROG Maximus series. Its Moonlight White armor and customizable ARGB lighting elements ride alongside a hybrid VRM block designed in collaboration with EK, giving you ample freedom to express your preferred build style. And underneath, circuit pathways illuminated with PCIe® Gen 5.0 and limit-breaking DDR5 support are poised to elevate performance well into the future, driving the Maximus Z690 Formula's appeal far beyond aesthetics.

The Latest ROG VRM Architecture

Fresh, New Power DesignModern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilising teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal.

4K Recording

1. Dual 8-pin ProCool II power connectorsTwo ProCool connectors ensure a reliable and snug connection to the EPS12V power lines.

2. MicroFine Alloy ChokesEach power stage is accompanied by a high-permeability alloy-core choke rate to handle a whopping 45 amps.

3. 20+1 Power StagesThe VRM features 20+1 power stages rated at 105 amps each.

4. Premium metallic capacitorsInput and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

CROSSCHILL EK III Cooling Solution

Passive Liquid CoolingThe CrossChill EK III water block leverages a fusion of passive and liquid cooling to keep VRMs operating at high efficiency. The nickel water channel hidden within the block quietly cools the Formula’s MOSFETs up to 63.7°C more than air alone, while the standard G1/4" threaded fittings are designed to integrate into existing setups with minimal effort.

Unprecedented Cooling Performance

Keep Your Components Ice ColdAn ambition to maximise performance calls for an appropriately powerful platform. Enter the CrossChill EK III VRM block, empowering enthusiasts to break the limits of conventional voltage regulation with a hybrid cooling system that sails past the core power requirements of 12th Gen Intel Core processors while maintaining rock-steady thermals.

1. Crosschill Hybrid
Thermal Design
Engineered with a nickel cooling channel that's incredibly effective at removing heat.

2. M.2
Dual M.2 slots feature backplate blocks that ensure high-performance drives deliver peak performance, even when airflow is restricted.

3. M.2
Three dedicated heatsinks keep up to three M.2 drives in the optimum operating temperature range for consistent performance and reliability.

4. High-Conductivity
Thermal Pad
A high-quality thermal pad improves overall heat transfer from the system by bridging the heat generated by the power stages to the heatsink.

5. Solid Steel
An electro-galvanised, cold-rolled coil construction backplate resists bending and helps draw heat away from the VRM.

6. Chipset
A dedicated chipset heatsink draws heat away to maintain optimum operating temperatures.

Cooler By Design

Temperature Headers

Multiple Temperature SourcesEach header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or via the UEFI.

PWM Headers

4-Pin PWM Headers Every onboard header auto-detects any PWM or DC fan, with three chassis fan headers offering ASUS HYDRANODE support.

Bundled Controller

Bundled ROG Fan controller A bundled fan controller card includes six additional DC and PWM fan headers, plus two thermal-probe headers.

Dedicated Water pump header

Water Pump+ A dedicated header can supply over 3 amps to a high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

monitor water cpp;omg temps

Water in/out A dedicated header enables monitoring of temperatures at the input/output points of any component.

flow rate monitor

Water Flow A dedicated header enables constant monitoring of flow rate throughout the entire loop.

Windows 11 Logo Is your Windows Genuine?

Many copies of Windows operating systems bought from unofficial channels like auction websites are not Genuine, even if they have allowed you to upgrade to newer versions. Buying a Genuine copy from an authorised reseller like Scan ensures you will get the latest updates, security patches and support from Microsoft.


True Performance Innovation

4K Recording

Welcome DDR5 MemoryA huge leap forwards for memory performance DDR5 memory has been unleashed. Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. For DDR5, the Maximus Z690 lineup breaks performance limits by providing a stacked suite of overclocking parameters for not only high-speed kits, but even entry-level memory modules that have a locked power management IC (PMIC).

Your Network at Light-Speed

4K Recording

WIFI 6EOnboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band, providing up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds along with improved capacity and better performance in dense wireless environments.

MARVELL® AQTION 10 GBPS ETHERNETDesigned to meet the demanding requirements of power users and content creators, 10 Gbps onboard Ethernet provides a new level of home networking. With up to 10 times the bandwidth of standard gigabit Ethernet, you'll enjoy streaming uncompressed 4K UHD videos and system backups and file transfers that are faster than ever before.

Maximise Your Storage Capabilities


Three Onboard M.2 slotsROG Maximus Z690 Formula features three onboard M.2 slots, with two offering support for PCIe 4.0 SSDs.


ROG HYPER M.2 CARDIf users need more M.2 storage or even faster data transfers, the bundled ROG Hyper M.2 Card features two more slots, one of which is a PCIe 5.0 and ready to perform at up to twice the speed of the accompanying PCIe 4.0 slot.

Aesthetics to Take Your Breath Away

Aura SyncGear up with ROG components — from graphics card and monitors to mice and keyboards. And up your game with complementary aesthetics, control and compatibility. The ROG ecosystem is more extensive than any competing brand, so you’ll enjoy greater choice as your system expands.

4K Recording

LIVEDASH OLEDThe ROG Maximus Z690 Formula includes LiveDash, a built-in 2-inch OLED panel that shows useful information and features customizable graphics. During the power-on, self-test (POST) phase, the OLED shows key stats in simple language using traditional POST codes. In normal operation, the panel can be programmed to show CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or water-cooling information. You can also personalize the default OLED GIF with a preferred image or animation.
