Description

ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming amps the power delivery and stacks a comprehensive set of cooling options to tame Intel’s latest CPUs. Together with a wealth of enhancements, including one-click optimization, the latest connectivity and futuristic styling with onboard illumination, ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming makes a formidable foundation for ATX gaming builds that go above and beyond.

 

SOLID HARDWARE SPECS FOR GAMING AND MORE
With comprehensive cooling options and upgraded power delivery to fuel CPUs with more cores, plus support for faster memory and storage, ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming provides all the essentials you need to harness the full potential of components in your build for top-tier gaming performance.

POWER

Power Design
Digital power control and an array of DrMOS power stages ensure the ROG Strix Z390 Gaming has the muscle to control Intel’s latest CPUs.

ProCool Power Connector
Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. The lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

COOLING

COOLER BY DESIGN
ROG Strix Z390 Gaming series features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS

MEMORY AND STORAGE

Dual PCIe 3.0 M.2
ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming features dual M.2 slots. One slot supports both SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 modes, and the other slot supports PCIe 3.0 x4 for NVMe. Together, they give you the fastest and most-flexible M.2 interface available.

DDR4 OC 4266MHz+
To provide Intel’s latest CPUs unfettered access to memory bandwidth, motherboard trace routing has been reimagined with the ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming. Integrated OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across PCB layers to reduce vias, and it also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. To further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, a highly customized T-Topology layout delivers time-aligned signaling.

NETWORKING

Intel Gigabit Ethernet
ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming features Intel Ethernet (I219-V), ensuring data exchanges with your network and the outside world are fast and smooth. Intel LAN reduces CPU overhead and increases TCP and UDP throughput, keeping more processing power.

LANGuard
Featuring advanced signal-coupling technology and high-tolerance components, LANGuard provides consistent Ethernet performance and greater protection against static electricity and power surges.

AUDIO

SupremeFX
Shielded Audio, Superior Sound
Immerse yourself in sound with SupremeFX audio technology. Utilizing the S1220A codec, SupremeFX is the integrated-audio solution that’s engineered to provide a flat frequency response for a neutral, detailed sound signature. And to ensure that pristine signature is perfectly preserved, the front-panel output is driven with dual op amps, delivering sonics with the scale and authority to create virtual worlds via your gaming headset.

 

DESIGN, CUSTOMIZATION, AND SETUP
A host of design touches, including a unique cyber-text pattern, plus customization options, comprehensive validation lists, and the most diverse ecosystem of components in the industry make building and personalizing a gaming rig with ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming wonderfully easy.

ID DESIGN

Cyber Fusion
An illuminated ROG logo with a natural diffuse glow and onboard I/O shroud lighting with a futuristic cyber-text pattern gives ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming a unique and arresting design that communicates its gaming identity. The cyber outlook extends to the PCB and heatsink with subtle textures that contribute a premium look and feel.

AURA SYNC

Outshine the Competition
ROG Strix motherboards deliver sterling performance and superior aesthetics to Outshine the Competition. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips connected to the onboard RGB header — and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable ASUS hardware.

Perfect
Synchronization
The ASUS Aura ecosystem is in the ascendancy, with an extensive and growing list of ASUS products now offering Aura Sync compatibility — along with loads of compatible accessories and kits available through partners. Your ROG Strix motherboard’s built-in Aura RGB lighting easily syncs with PC cases, memory modules, coolers and RGB LED strips from a broad selection of well-known manufacturers. ASUS Aura software provides simple and intuitive lighting management.

CERTIFIED COMPATIBILITY

Certified Compatibility
Having the freedom to pick and choose the parts that go into your machine is at the heart of PC DIY. That’s why ROG Strix undergoes an extensive certification program focused on providing the very best compatibility with the widest range of components and devices. Our extensive list of guaranteed-compatible components is an invaluable aid to building a ROG Strix gaming rig. It specifies thousands of compatible parts, and it includes a dedicated Qualified Vendor List (QVL) for memory — so you can build fuss-free.

ROG STRIX ECOSYSTEM

The ROG Strix Ecosystem Awaits
Gear up with ROG Strix components, from graphics and sound cards, to mice and keyboards, and up your game with complementary aesthetics, control and compatibility — and enjoy more choice than any competing brand.

 

TUNE YOUR RIG THE WAY YOU WANT
The ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming motherboard features firmware controls and software utilities designed for all skill levels, making setup, tuning and system maintenance simple. With options from overclocking and cooling to managing network performance and audio characteristics, you can configure your ROG Strix gaming build to perform the way you want.

INTELLIGENT CONTROL

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.

5-Way Optimization
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.

UEFI BIOS
The renowned ROG UEFI (BIOS) provides everything you need to configure, tweak, and tune your rig. It offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.

PERSONALIZED SOUND

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.

Scan and Detect to Dominate
Sonic Radar III
The new Sonic Radar III has an evolved audio engine to process sounds more accurately than ever, ensuring you’re always aware of what’s going on around you. It now also includes an onscreen arrow to help you instantly pinpoint the enemy’s position and the origin of key in-game sounds. Plus, the new Audio Boost feature provides filters that let you hear even the faintest sounds, so you can become the hunter, not the hunted!

GAMEFIRST NETWORK CONTROL

GameFirst V
GameFirst V is the ROG-exclusive tool that optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming. Team your gateways, keeps tabs on bandwidth-hogging apps and make adjustments on the fly.

RAMCACHE III

RamCache III
RAMCache turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times. Fully compatible with the latest NVM Express storage options, its uniquely intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds.

ARMOURY CRATE & MORE
