ASUS ROG STRIX Z790 H GAMING WIFI Motherboard
Strike stealthily with the powerfully potent ROG Strix Z790-H. Thick black heatsinks keep VRM temperatures under wraps, allowing Intel® 13th Gen processors room for higher boosts. Four M.2 slots are similarly outfitted, and the top slot comes with a combo sink to sneak in extra cooling. PCIe 5.0 support lies in wait for next-gen graphics cards, and cutting-edge WiFi 6E and USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 fully flesh out connectivity.
PCIE® SLOT Q-RELEASE
A physical button unlocks the first PCIe slot’s security latch with one tap, greatly simplifying the process of detaching a PCIe card from the motherboard when it’s time to upgrade to a new GPU or other compatible device.
The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an SSD from an M.2 slot. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive, eliminating the need for a traditional screw.
The Clear CMOS button quickly resets BIOS settings to factory default. It can also be used to reboot the PC if incorrect BIOS settings have been selected.
BIOS FlashBack™ is a safe and simple way to update BIOS. Just 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.
Four onboard LEDs indicate power status and identify problems with CPU, memory, graphics card, or boot device for quick diagnosis.
Every aspect of the Strix Z790-H is intelligently optimized so the processor, memory, and connected devices can run in lockstep in order to achieve breakneck speeds.
Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push the system to its limits. Predicted values can be engaged automatically or used as a launching ground for further experimentation.
The Strix Z790-H adds PCIe 5.0 support to its arsenal with an x16 expansion slot that’s protected with a SafeSlot retention bracket to bear the weight of the latest graphics cards.
Four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots are covered with substantial heatsinks to dispatch the heat of high-performance SSDs.
16 + 1 power stages each rated to 80A deliver ample current to drive the most powerful Intel 13th Gen processors through any workload with ease.
ROG has a long legacy of flexing the fastest memory performance, and DDR5 is no outlier. Thanks to improved signal routing, enthusiast-grade kits have been driven far beyond the 7 GT/s mark on the Strix Z790-H, and who knows how far future DIMMs can go? Seasoned veterans can test their mettle by tinkering with the extensive array of tuning options in the UEFI.
VRM HEATSINK ARRAY
A robust cooling array leverages two heatsinks connected with a heatpipe, along with airflow channels cut into the aluminum. These features synergize to efficiently dissipate heavy thermal loads with ease.
Lightning-fast networking keeps the Strix Z790-H in sync with the outside world for uninterrupted gaming and creation. Furthering immersion is SupremeFX audio, which delivers crystal clear sound.
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.
USB 3.2 GEN 2X2
The Strix Z790-H comes loaded with two USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C® connectors for speedy data transfers up to 20 Gbps.
ROG SupremeFX is a unique blend of hardware and software technologies that provide superior audio. The Strix Z790-H implementation features the S1220A codec for high-resolution playback up to 32-bit/192 kHz across all channels. Front-panel output is streamed through the integrated Savitech amplifier that can drive high-fidelity acoustics to a wide variety of speakers and headsets.
PLAY IN STYLE
Black PCB and heatsinks compliment most hardware, and customizable RGB lighting furthers the flexibility. Pair the Strix Z790-H with other products from the diverse ROG ecosystem to create a fully customized gaming setup that reflects your personal style.
UNDENIABLY ROG STRIX
Diagonal slats, brushed aluminum, and bold RGB accents have become hallmarks of the ROG aesthetic, and the Strix Z790-H bears all of them with pride.
OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION
ROG Strix motherboards feature ASUS Aura technology, enabling full lighting control and a variety of presets for both onboard RGB LEDs and third-party accessories. Effects can be easily synced across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, and mice to give your setup a unified look.
A myriad of ROG-exclusive tools put advanced system tuning and configuration at your fingertips.
AI COOLING II
Balance the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. A proprietary ASUS algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.
Armoury Crate is a software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate helps you customize RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronize them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system. In addition, Armoury Crate’s Fan Xpert4 tool provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps, and all-in-one (AIO) coolers.
You can use Armoury Crate to download drivers, tools, and user manuals, and to register products. It also taps into a special news feed that connects you to the global ASUS gaming community.
