Power Delivery Enhancements
Digital power control and an array of power stages ensure Strix Z490-F Gaming has the muscle to control the latest Intel CPUs.

1. 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. ROG Strix Z490-F Gaming utilizes 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. Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.

Cooling innovation
1. 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.
2. Thermal Pads : High-quality thermal pads transfers heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.
3. 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.
4. Dual M.2 Heatsinks : The M.2 heatsinks keep 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

1. Multiple temperature sources : Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling. And all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or UEFI.
2. 4-pin PWM/DC Fan Header : Every onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
3. AIO Pump Fan Header : A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
4. Water Pump Header : A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.

Intelligent 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 optimizes and organizes network bandwidth, effectively reducing jitter and eliminating spike lag to ensure smooth online gameplay.

Dual PCIe 3.0 M.2
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.

Next-gen Connectivity
1. 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.
2. 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.

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.

Undeniably ROG Strix
ROG Strix Z490-F Gaming is unmistakably ROG, it features a mirror-like stainless steel finish, complete with diagonal lines across the I/O shield and futuristic cyber-text.

DIY 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 customize 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.
