Built to Take the Strain


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. 12+2 DrMos Power Stage
ROG Strix Z490-H Gaming utilises 12+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.

3.Upgraded Chokes
Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.

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 Overclocking
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each system.

AI Cooling
AI Cooling automatically manages and controls motherboard connected fans, ensuring the most efficient settings depending on the current system load and temperature.

AI Networking
GameFirst 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 Compatibility

Two 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

M.2 Socket with E Key
Integrated with Intel® wireless-AX/AC technology, M.2 supports CNVi/PCIe/USB mode to build a faster and more cost-effective WiFi and Bluetooth® 5.1 solution.* *Bluetooth 5.1 will be ready in Windows 10 build 19041 or later.

Intel 2.5G Ethernet
Onboard 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


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.

Audio Enhancement Options with Sonic Studio III

Sonic Studio III
Sonic Studio supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function*) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options and one-click presets, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.

Sonic Studio Link
The new Sonic Studio Link now allows you to apply Sonic Studio effects on all playback devices. Simply press the Sonic Studio Link button to enjoy the effect on any playback devices.

Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer
A virtual audio device that lets streamers combine sound output and output from different apps. This allows you to mix your voice and video game audio within streaming software. A variety of adjustment and monitoring tools provide a high level of digital control.

D.I.Y Friendly

1. Pre-mounted I/O shield
ROG’s patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install the motherboard.

2. Q-LEDs
Four onboard LEDs indicate power status, and any problem with the CPU, memory, graphics card or boot device for quick diagnosis.

3. FlexKey
The 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.

4. 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.
