Digital power control and an array of power stages ensure ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming has the muscle to control the latest Intel CPUs
Fan Bracket and 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
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.
High-quality thermal pads transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.
Extended VRM Heatsink
The 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.
Dual M.2 Heatsinks
The M.2 heatsinks keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
COOLER BY DESIGN
ROG Strix Z490 series features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS
CPU Fan Header
A dedicated pair of PWM/DC fan headers for CPU coolers.
AIO Pump Fan Header
A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
Water Pump Header
A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
The M.2 heatsink keeps the M.2 SSD at the optimum operating temperature for consistent performance and reliability.
M.2 Fan Header
A dedicated M.2 fan header helps keeps temperatures low for improved performance and longevity.
4-pin PWM/DC Fan Header
Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans
ROG AI Overclocking
ROG AI Overclocking is an intelligent utility that helps you get the most out of your build by automatically profiling your CPU and cooling system to predict optimal voltage and frequency settings.
Accessible via the AI Suite software in Windows or directly through the UEFI, the intuitive AI Overclocking user interface enables users of all levels. A range of customizable settings are available for seasoned overclockers, and an auto-tuning option is available for beginners
AI OVERCLOCKING AT A GLANCE
Designed by Experts
At the heart of AI Overclocking is a proprietary algorithm developed by ROG R&D engineers who worked with world-renowned overclockers to create a tool for users of all levels.
The algorithm analyzes your CPU and cooling system and, based on what it finds, predicts optimal settings. The software then uses these settings to automatically guide the clocking process, balancing frequency and voltage.
The software monitors workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw every minute, and makes real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.
ASUS AI Cooling function will automatically manage and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.
SELF-ADAPTIVE FAN TUNING
CPU temperature detection
AI Cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down.
Under stable system loads, the software then automatically lowers fan* speed to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance
AI Cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current load.
AI Cooling can easily be activated via the Fan Xpert 4 dashboard in ASUS AI Suite 3. Once activated, it will override all manual controls.
Fan speed references
For those who prefer manual control, AI Cooling provides reference points on a graph that details fan speed in relation to temperature, providing a guide for fan settings.
The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users — beginners, experts, and everyone in between — optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI enhanced identification and boost technology to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.
HOW IT WORKS
GameFirst VI analyzes your usage patterns and applications' digital signatures and compares them to a database of over 200,000 apps. This database is regularly updated to ensure apps are recognized correctly.
