Description

Dressed in professional attire, the Prime Z390 series caters to daily users and content creators with well-rounded specs and features. Combining the benefits of the latest processors with essential ASUS design and engineering, Prime Z390 provides a wealth of options for performance tuning via intuitive software and firmware features.

 

TUNE IT YOUR WAY

Prime Z390 simplifies CPU overclocking with software and extensive tweaking options that give beginners and seasoned overclockers alike the tools to build well-tuned machines. A new memory trace layout provides stability and compatibility for both traditional DIMMs and RGB-infused memory, letting you pair a broad choice of DRAM kits with your build.

UEFI BIOS

Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS
The UEFI BIOS is an early waypoint on any PC-building journey, and Prime Z390M-Plus offers one of the best in the business.

MEMORY ENHANCEMENTS

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.

MemOK! II
Automated Recovery
MemOK! II automatically fixes boot failures that arise due to memory overclocking and instability. When a DRAM-related POST error occurs, the motherboard adjusts memory parameters until the system is able to start.

 

COOL AND RELIABLE

Prime Z390M-Plus is designed for builders who want essential ASUS reliability and performance. More CPU cores create power-delivery challenges, so Prime Z390M-Plus has extra power phases and comprehensive cooling features for optimal performance.

COOLER BY DESIGN
Prime Z390M-Plus features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

POWER DELIVERY ENHANCEMENTS

Enhanced power delivery
Prime Z390M-Plus adjusts power delivery based on the number of power phases, optimizing power and efficiency for the latest Intel processors.

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.

BUILD TO LAST

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.

 

VISUAL BEAUTY

ASUS Lighting Control
Brighten up your build
With 5050 RGB strips connected to the RGB header, you can create your own stunning multicolor lighting displays with static, blinking, fading, and strobing effects.

 

UPGRADE TO UNRIVALLED AUDIO

Outstanding audio
Combined onboard features deliver elevated audio
Intelligent design and premium hardware create audio quality unlike anything you’ve ever experienced!
