    AI Overclocking

    ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

    CPU Potential We created a proprietary algorithm that evaluates the capabilities of your CPU

    +

    Cooling Capability The onboard intelligence also watches system vitals like temperatures, fan speeds, and power draw to gauge cooling performance.

    AI Overclocking Utilizes onboard intelligence to perform automated clocking and provides target frequency and voltage estimations for savvy veterans that prefer manual tuning

    5-way Optimization

    Overclocking Intelligence

    Take care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking, but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the get-go.

    CPU performance boost

    The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) provides AI Suite 3 with the intelligence needed to automatically fine-tune voltages, monitor system stats, and adjust overclocking settings. We have upgraded this tool to provide AI Overclocking prediction values for users who want more insight when experimenting with different settings.

    All-round energy efficiency

    The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) enables system-wide power efficiency to automatically optimize power consumption to maximize energy savings. This tool now features temperature regulation that adjusts the CPU frequency according to processor temperatures. Users can now set a threshold to balance temperature and performance.

    Flexible cooling controls for air or liquid

    With WS Z390 PRO you have comprehensive control over fans via Fan Xpert 4 or our media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

    Precise digital power control

    Digi+ delivers real-time control over voltage droop, switching frequency and power -efficiency settings, allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.

    App specific optimization for professionals and gamers

    Whether you're a professional designer or hardcore gamer, you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo App every day. This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking, apply fan profiles, prioritize network data and optimize audio settings at app level, meaning your WS Z390 PRO system is perfectly optimized for what you're doing.

    Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS

    The UEFI BIOS is an early waypoint on any PC-building journey, and WS Z390 PRO offers one of the best in the business.

    OptiMem II

    Reimagined from the ground up

    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
    Designed to tackle compute workloads WS Z390 PRO has enhanced power delivery for multithreaded processors and an array of controllable headers for liquid loops and air coolers.

    Cooler by design

    WS Z390 PRO 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.

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

    A dedicated fan header that can supply up to 3 Amps, for high-speed high-current fans.

    A dedicated header that supplies over 3A for high-performance PWM or DC water pump.

    A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

    Includes three additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.

    M.2 heatsink

    Keep your SSD cooler

    WS Z390 PRO has an ultra-efficient heatsink to reduce M.2 SSD temperatures for optimal storage performance and improved SSD longevity.

    DR. MOS

    The WS Z390 PRO'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.

    ProCool power connector

    Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. This lowers impedance, which helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

    SafeSlot

    Protect your graphics card investment

    SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
