Power at Your Fingertips

One-click Overclock and Cooling

Get performance, efficiency, digital power, fan control and even networking and audio tuning tailored for you

One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of your system based on real-time usage — so you get superb CPU performance, everyday energy savings, ultra-stable digital power, cool and quiet fans, and now networking and audio settings that are tailored to your apps. In short, 5-Way ASUS Optimization ensures that your PC is perfect for gaming, entertainment and productivity!

  • Games run swiftly and smoothly with high performance, prioritized bandwidth and vivid sound.
  • Fans stay whisper-quiet for everyday computing, and ensure extreme cooling efficiency when gaming.
  • Stutter is eliminated for smooth-running apps, even under heavy loading.
  • Energy waste is reduced so you'll save money.

OC Design – ASUS PRO Clock Technology

A dedicated base-clock generator designed for 7th Generation Intel® processors allows overclocked base clock frequencies up to or beyond 425MHz*. This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TurboV processing unit to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control — providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.

DDR4 Overclocking Strength in Numbers

Third-generation ASUS T-Topology allows memory frequencies that are higher than ever — to 3866MHz and beyond. Refined manufacturing ensures ultra-consistent quality and minimal crosstalk between custom trace paths, so you'll enjoy the thrill of overclocking DDR4 with time-aligned signaling for superior stability and compatibility.

Hardware Upgrade Zone

SLI HB bridge (2-WAY-M)

The new ASUS SLI HB bridge doubles the available transfer bandwidth to provide silky-smooth surround gaming. Compatible with NVIDIA® Titan X, GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 graphics cards, SLI HB bridge is your fast track to gaming greatness.

Native M.2/NVMe PCIe RAID Support for Lightning Fast Storage Speed

Not satisfied with single-storage device read/write speeds? Then join the fast lane and build a RAID 0 array using two PCIe storage drives to enjoy data transfers at lightning speeds!

Connect with Unparalleled Speeds

Intel Optane Memory Ready

Intel® Optane™ Memory* is a revolutionary (non-volatile memory) technology supported by Prime 200-series motherboards. Intel Optane Memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.

*Supports 7th Generation Intel® processors. Requires driver and BIOS update.

Speed Up with Onboard M.2 Up to 32Gb/s

With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gb/s data-transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional apps work as fast as possible.

10Gb/s USB 3.1 Onboard

With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Type-A and reversible USB 3.1 Type-C ports, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gb/s (twice as fast as standard USB 3.0).

ThunderboltEX 3 for Blistering Speeds and USB-C Connectivity

Prime Z270-A supports the ThunderboltEX 3 card for breathtaking bi-directional Thunderbolt™ 3 transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps, 4x USB speeds, 2x video bandwidth; and for reversible USB 3.1 Type-C compatibility as well as high-powered 36W charging!

Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS

The smoothest, slickest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned overclocker, EZ and Advanced modes help you find your way, quickly and easily.

Aura Sync and Audio Enhancement

Outshine The Competition

ASUS Aura Sync technology for distinctive lighting effects

Aura Sync takes RGB lighting beyond the checkbox, combining and controlling the LEDs of your Aura-enabled products from a single application — so you can achieve perfect, synchronized lighting harmony. Aura lets you sync light effects across your graphics card, Prime Z270-A motherboard, and an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-enabled products.

Brighten Up Your Build

ASUS Aura lighting control

A well-tuned system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for built-in RGB LEDs as well as LED strips connected to the onboard 4-pin RGB headers — all of which can be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura Sync-capable ASUS hardware.

Exclusive Audio Features

Realtek codec and unique design features for pristine, powerful audio

ASUS Prime Z270-A utilizes a unique audio codec designed in close collaboration with Realtek — the Realtek S1220A. It also features an unprecedented 120dB signal-to-noise ratio for the stereo line-out and a 113dB SNR for the line-in, providing pristine audio quality. Additionally, a new impedance-sensing circuit automatically adjusts gain to ensure the optimal volume range for your headphones.

Intel Ethernet

More throughput, less CPU usage and great gaming experiences

Prime Z270-A features the very latest Intel® Ethernet for faster, smoother gaming. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game!

Turbo LAN

Network-optimization software for customizable packet prioritization

Turbo LAN with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology adds even more lag-reducing support and an intuitive user interface. It allows you to lower lag with no expert knowledge — by up to 1.45x! If you're a tweaker, use Advanced mode for hardcore controls.

Reliable Stability and Compatibility

SafeSlot

Protect your graphics card investment

SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process to integrate the slot with fortifying metal support for an inherently stronger design, the SafeSlot is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
