Tune it your way

5-way Optimization with AI Overclocking

Overclocking Intelligence

The overclocking module of AI Suite’s 5-Way Optimization has been revamped for the Prime Z390-A. With a revised back-end that has the intelligence to overclock a CPU based upon smart prediction and thermal telemetry, this new version quickly delivers overclocking results that would typically take days of manual tuning.

OptiMem II

DDR4 OC 4266+MHz

To provide Intel’s latest processors’ unfettered access to memory bandwidth, we’ve reimagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up.  Our OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, we’ve employed a highly customized T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signaling.

Cool and Reliable

Cooler by design

Prime Z390 series features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors, and via Fan Xpert 4 you can even map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU and CPU-intensive tasks.

A dedicated header that supplies over 3A for high-performance PWM or DC water pumps, plus a second dedicated header for AIOs.
*Water pump+ header is available on Prime Z390-A

Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

Includes three additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.
*Header is available on Prime Z390-A

A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and over-current.

*Specifications vary by models.

M.2 heatsink

Keep your SSD cooler

Prime Z390-A has an ultra-efficient heatsink to reduce M.2 SSD temperatures by up to 20°C — and that means optimal storage performance and improved SSD longevity.

Enhanced power delivery

Prime Z390 series adjusts power delivery based on the number of power phases, optimizing power and efficiency for the latest Intel processors.

DR. MOS

Prime Z390-A's CPU VRM utilizes Dr. MOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that Intel's latest processors demand.

Built to Last

ASUS motherboards are exhaustively tested for compatibility with more than 1,000 components and devices, and each new model undergoes a minimum of 8,000 hours of strict validation — offering the peace of mind of knowing that your ASUS motherboard is fit for all environments and applications.
