    performance

    ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming rocks core ROG features to help you max out all aspects of system performance, handing you the tools needed to realize your system's true potential.

    Double Decker Heatsink

    ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming has an innovative double-decker heatsink design that allows the M.2 SSD to be stacked atop of the PCH heat sink, which is then topped off with an additional metal heatsink for the M.2 drive. The two heatsinks are thermally isolated to prevent the PCH and M.2 from affecting each other. The double decker design not only cleverly maximizes the board space on miniITX board, but also dramatically improves heat dissipation, cooling the M.2 SSD by up to 20°C for better stability and enhanced gaming performance while featuring a stylish angular design to enhance the look of ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming builds.
