LGA 1200CPU Socket
Built to Take the Strain
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.
ChokesSuperior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.
Unprecedented Thermal Dominance
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
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
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
Wi-Fi 6 (AX201) Onboard Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) supports ultrafast network speeds, improved capacity and better performance in dense Wi-Fi environments, providing exceptional online gaming experiences.
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.
This is High Quality Audio
SupremeFX Built-in SupremeFX audio technology ensures pristine audio. It provides a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And if you're using a gaming headset, the front panel output is driven by two op amps to preserve audio quality.
Pre-Mounted I.O ShieldROG’s patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install the motherboard.
Q-Code Diagnostic codes provide a reference for fast and easy look up of common installation and component problems.
FlexKeyThe front-panel header lets you customise the reset button on the front-panel of your chassis to provide quick access to your choice of Aura lighting controls, DirectKey or system reset.
BIOS Flashback™ BIOS Flashback™ is the simplest and safest (UEFI) BIOS update method. Simply 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.
