8th & 9th Gen IntelCompatible CPUs
Accurate Power Delivery
REVOLUTIONARY INTEGRATED I/0 SHIELD AND VRM HEATSINK DESIGNDigital power control and an array of DrMOS power stages ensure the ROG Strix Z390 Gaming Series has the muscle to control Intel's latest CPUs. ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and clean power delivery to the CPU. The Strix Z390-I Gaming uses high-quality thermal pads to help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to a heatsink that has ample surface area to deal with the power demands of all Coffee Lake processors.
Tune it Your Way with AI Overclocking
Intelligent Control ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system. ASUS have created a proprietary algorithm that evaluates the capabilities of your CPU. The onboard intelligence also watches system vitals like temperatures, fan speeds, and power draw to gauge cooling performance.
Overclocking Intelligence Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same on-board intelligence as AI Overclocking, but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the beginning.
Flexible Cooling Controls With the ROG STRIX Z390 Series you have comprehensive control over fans via Fan Xpert 4 or the media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you are cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. Extreme Quiet mode reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum assuring your system stays whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.
CPU Performance Boost Unleash your PC’s full performance with the ASUS AI Suite 3 utility. The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is the intelligence behind our automated system-tuning utility, offering the ability to fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclock parameters for optimal performance.
All-round Energy Efficiency The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically amplifies power consumption and maximises savings with Away mode. The smart setting that produces an extreme energy-saving setup by shutting down unused I/O controllers, with the EPU you will appreciate system-wide power reserves.
Optimization for gamers and professionals Whether you're a professional designer or hardcore gamer, you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo App every day. This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings at app level, meaning your ROG system is perfectly optimized for what you're doing.
Digital Power Controls The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power-efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.
Cooler by Design
Double Decker HeatsinkROG Strix Z390 Gaming series features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. A dedicated pair of PWM/DC fan headers for CPU coolers are easy to access on the top of the CPU Socket whilst a dedicated AIO header can be found for self contained water-cooling setups. Every onboard header even supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans. An innovative double-decker design separates the primary M.2 SSD slot's heat spreader from the PCH heatsink. Both are isolated to prevent the PCH and M.2 thermals from affecting each other. An integrated I/O shield and VRM heatsink utilize almost one third of the Strix Z390-I mini-ITX board to deliver a uniquely effective cooling system.
Dual PCIe Gen3 M.2 and Double-capacity DIMM support
Integrated OptiMem II technology ROG Strix Z390-I Gaming features Dual PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots which provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to two PCIe 3.0 storage devices via the dual M.2 slots to enjoy the fastest data-transfer speeds on the 8th Generation Intel Core platform. ROG Strix Z390-I Gaming also features a unique memory-trace design that supports up to 32GB per channel for a total memory capacity of 64GB. With double-capacity UDIMM modules, ROG Strix Z390-I Gaming delivers four-DIMM memory bandwidth in a compact, dual-DIMM design. OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Intel Gigabit Ethernet with Integrated Ultra Wi-Fi support
ASUS LANGuard provides consistent performance and greater protection ROG Strix Z390-I Gaming features the latest Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 MU-MIMO and wide 160MHz channels, for wireless speeds of up to 1.73Gbps.* In fact, its integrated Wireless-AC 9560 Wi-Fi adapter pushes wireless data up to 2X faster than other Wi-Fi solutions — so you'll get fast, smooth transfers, even when your rig is further away from the router. Intel Wireless-AC 9560 also offers Bluetooth 5.0 for connections that are up to 2X faster than ever before, and with up to 4X the range. Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power.
Shielded Audio, Superior Sound
Sonic Studio III provides crystal quality sounds Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220A codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that's engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature.
