DIY-Friendly Features
 
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.

 

M.2 Q-Latch
The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an M.2 SSD without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive and neatly eliminate traditional screws.

 

Clear CMOS
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
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.

 

Q-Code
The on-board LED panel shows 2-digit diagnostic codes, providing a valuable reference for troubleshooting common boot problems and hardware issues.

 

Start Button
This convenient button removes the need to manually jump hard-to-reach pins during testing and troubleshooting.
 
 
 

 

All-Round Performance
Every aspect of the Strix Z790-E is finely tuned so the processor, memory, and connected devices can run in lockstep in order to achieve breakneck speeds.

 

Overclocking
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.

 

PCIe 5.0
Fully embracing the new standard, the Strix Z790-E offers end-to-end PCIe 5.0 support. The topmost x16 expansion slot is Gen 5-ready, and is protected with a SafeSlot retention bracket to bear the weight of the latest graphics cards. One of the onboard M.2 slots is geared for blistering 16 GB/s read and write speeds thanks to its PCIe 5.0 interface, while all the rest can deliver still-impressive 8 GB/s transfers. Every M.2 slot is covered with substantial heatsinks to dispatch the heat of next-gen drives.
 
 
 
Power Design
 
Power Architecture
18 + 1 power stages each rated to 90A deliver ample current to drive the most powerful Intel 13th Gen processors through any workload with ease.
 
Alloy Chokes And Durable Capacitors
Hi-end chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures, enabling performance that exceeds industry standards.
 
Dual 8-pin Procool Ii Power Connectors
ProCool II connectors are precision-built to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. A metal sheath improves heat dissipation and lowers electrical impedance.
 
Eight-Layer PCB
A multi-layered printed circuit board design quickly dissipates heat around the voltage regulators to improve overall system stability and provide the CPU with more overclocking headroom.
 
 

 

Memory
ROG has a long legacy of flexing the fastest memory performance, and DDR5 is no outlier. Thanks to improved signal routing, now enthusiast-grade kits have been driven far beyond the 7 GT/s mark on the Strix Z790-E, 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.

Seasoned veterans can test their mettle by tinkering with the extensive array of tuning options in the UEFI.
 
AEMP II
ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP) is an exclusive hardware and firmware solution to overclock generic memory modules. AEMP's second version allows for automatic tuning of kits during system startup and leverages the PCB trace optimizations of the Strix Z790-E to push frequencies higher than ever before. AEMP II can even overclock mixed kits in a quad-DIMM arrangement, and the vast library of support now extends to nearly every DDR5 module that does not otherwise have XMP support.

M.2 Combo-Sink
An M.2 heatsink with a direct-contact heat pipe efficiently transfers thermal energy away from a mounted drive and into the path of chassis airflow, ensuring optimal operating temperatures.
 
M.2 backp$Late
An integrated backplate on the mid-board M.2 slot helps ensure that a high-performance PCIe 5.0 drive can deliver peak performance, even when airflow is restricted.
 
M.2 heatsinks
Heatsinks cover every slot to help keep onboard NVME SSDs at optimal temperatures for consistent performance and reliability.
 
CPU fan headers
A dedicated pair of PWM/DC fan headers provides easy access to CPU coolers.
 
AIO Pump Fan Header
A dedicated PWM/DC header connects self-contained water-cooling setups.
 
4-pin Fan Headers
The Strix Z790-E features five chassis fan headers, each supporting auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
 
 
 

 

Leading Connectivity
Lightning-fast networking keeps the Strix Z790-E in sync with the outside world for uninterrupted gaming and creation.
