Tweak and Tune Your Way
Wide Range of Performance and Tuning OptionsComprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime Z490 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling you to tweak performance settings to perfectly match the way you work – maximizing your productivity.
All-Around Energy efficiencyThe Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimises your power consumption and maximizes energy savings with a simple Away mode — a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down any unused I/O controllers.
Flexible Air and Liquid Cooling Control Fan Xpert 4 software provides you with comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AiO) coolers. Whether cooling with air or water, an Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There’s also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans, water pumps and AiO coolers can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.
Precise Digital Power ControlThe Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) gives real-time control over voltage drop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.
World Renowned UEFI BIOS
Not just for veteransThe renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
Advanced Mode An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various Advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.
EZ(Easy) ModeEZ mode displays vital settings and stats and also offers guided wizards, drag-and-drop functionality, and one-click application of important settings — all to help you get your rig up and running in no time.Incredible Performance Need Incredible Cooling
VRM Heatsink and Thermal PadsTwo massive VRM heatsinks with underneath thermal pads improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.
Get the Best Out of your Board
Robust Power DesignWith the Prime Series Z490 Motherboards ASUS have recognised that stable power is essential to squeeze every last drop of performance from your 10th Gen Intel CPU, the Prime Z490-p is built to cater to the demands of high-core count CPUS with the addition of ProCool connectors that augment the motherboard's link to the PSU with 8+4 pin connectors that pass 12 volts of power directly to the processors and 10+1 DrMOS Power Stages that are capable of delivering the power and efficiency that the latest generation of intel CPUs Demand.
Optimise your Memory with ASUS OptiMem II
Revisions to Trace Routing The Z490 Prime Motherboards now provide unrestricted access to memory bandwidth for 10th Gen CPUs by making some revisions to the motherboards trace routing. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Lightning Fast Storage with Dual M.2
Faster booting and app load times Dual M.2 slots support data-transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps via x4 PCI Express® 3.0 bandwidth, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
ASUS SafeSlot Protection
PREMIUM ASUS TECHNOLOGY SafeSlot Core+ is the ASUS-exclusive PCIe slot fortified with a one-piece stainless-steel brace that shields the slot to protect it from damage. The metal cover is tightly secured to the slot with hooks, and the entire assembly is firmly anchored to the PCB with strengthened solder points to provide a secure foundation for heavyweight graphics cards and with a 1.6x stronger retention force and sheering test you can be confident you are protected.
Strengthened Solder PointsStrengthened solder points around the PCIe and DIMM pins.
Precise Metal InsertsMetal inserts keep graphics cards properly aligned during installation.
Metal Side PanelThe metal side-panels feature hooks that firmly clasp the slot body.
Outshine the Competition with ASUS Aura Sync
Your Motherboard, Your Way A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for strips connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
