ROG Strix Z390-H Gaming revitalizes the classic ROG red-and-black color scheme, adding a futuristic cyber-text pattern for a stunning modern style. It’s loaded with essentials, including the latest connectivity plus intuitive ROG software optimization. All this and more makes ROG Strix Z390-H Gaming the perfect choice for all types of gamer and any level of ambition.
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-H Gaming provides all the essentials you need to harness the full potential of components in your build for top-tier gaming performance.
Digital power control together with an efficient thermal solution ensure ROG Strix Z390-H 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.
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 & STORAGE
Dual PCIe 3.0 M.2
ROG Strix Z390-H 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-H 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.
Intel Gigabit Ethernet
ROG Strix Z390-H 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.
Featuring advanced signal-coupling technology and high-tolerance components, LANGuard provides consistent Ethernet performance and greater protection against static electricity and power surges.
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-H Gaming wonderfully easy.
An illuminated ROG logo, in signature red, and onboard I/O shroud accented with a futuristic cyber-text pattern lend ROG Strix Z390-H Gaming a unique and arresting aesthetic that communicates its gaming identity. The modern outlook extends to the PCB and heatsink with subtle textures that contribute a premium look and feel.
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.
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.

Performance Level Up
With the exclusive AI Suite 3, you can control your rig’s performance directly from the operating system. Its dashboard-style control panel lets you fine-tune cooling, stability, and efficiency via one simple and intuitive interface.
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 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.
ARMOURY CRATE & MORE
The brand-new Armoury Crate portal keeps you updated with the latest drivers and BIOS releases. Its easy-to-use UI can be configured to show a variety of information, including security updates, bug patches, the latest ROG news, gaming events and special offers.
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.
Overwolf is a clever, unobtrusive overlay that lets you browse the internet, email, IM, and stream or record gameplay – all while you’re in the game. Color-matched ROG skins that display your status as a member of an elite pack are also available for download from the Overwolf App Store.
