Republic of Gamers (ROG) is an ASUS sub-brand dedicated to creating one of the world’s best gaming hardware and software. Formed in 2006, ROG offers a complete line of innovative products known for performance and quality.
Fully command your gaming experience on 9th generation Intel Core processors with the ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming featuring 5-Way Optimization for dynamic system control with AI overclocking. Dual M.2, 802.11ac WiFi and USB 3.1 Gen2 deliver maximum connectivity speeds while ASUS OptiMem II ensures better DRAM overclocking stability.
Designed for 9th and 8th generation Intel Core processors to maximize connectivity
Revamped 5-Way Optimization overclocks intelligently based on smart prediction and thermal telemetry
Gamer’s Guardian ensures component longevity with SafeSlot, ESD Guards and DRAM Overcurrent Protection
Pre-mounted I/O shield ensures streamlined installation and represents ROG’s attention to detail and quality
The overclocking module of AI Suite's 5-Way Optimization has been revamped for the Z390 platform. With a revised back-end that has the intelligence to overclock a CPU based upon smart prediction and thermal telemetry, this new version quickly delivers overclocking results that would typically take days of manual tuning.
Cooler by design
ROG Strix Z390 Gaming series features the most comprehensive cooling options ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS. Featureing a dedicated pair of PWM/DC fan headers for CPU coolers, a dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups and a dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
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.
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.
DIY Friendly Design
SafeSlot provides stronger PCIe device retention and greater shearing resistance. Q-DIMM clips allow for super-simple, super-secure handling of memory modules. MemOK ll automatically fixes boot failures that arise die to memory overclocking and instability.
ROG's I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted to make it easy to install the motherboard.
