ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming amps the power delivery and stacks a comprehensive set of cooling options to tame Intel's latest CPUs. Together with a wealth of enhancements, including one-click optimization, the latest connectivity and futuristic styling with onboard illumination, ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming makes a formidable foundation for ATX gaming builds that go above and beyond.

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-F Gaming provides all the essentials you need to harness the full potential of components in your build for top-tier gaming performance.

Power Design

Digital power control and an array of DrMOS power stages ensure the ROG Strix Z390 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.

Dual PCIe 3.0 M.2

ROG Strix Z390-F 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-F 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-F 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.

LANGuard

Featuring advanced signal-coupling technology and high-tolerance components, LANGuard provides consistent Ethernet performance and greater protection against static electricity and power surges.

SupremeFX

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-F Gaming wonderfully easy.

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.

*The addressable RGB header supports WS2812B addressable RGB LED strips (5V/Data/Ground), with a max power rating of 3A (5V) and a max of 60 LEDs.
**The Aura RGB-strip header supports 5050 RGB LED strips with a max power rating of 3A (12V). For maximum brightness, strip length should not exceed 3m.
***RGB extension cables are included. LED strips and Aura Sync-compatible devices are sold separately.

Perfect Synchronization

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.

I bought this with a view to have an adaptable m'board that would cope with decent VR (still got to get that). It has lots of options for those who like to tinker and that like to add light shows to their PC. No my cup of tea but this is well set out, has decent software (although a good bunch of it will not see the light of day on my machine). I don't know how this compares to the higher price range boards but it does more than enough to cope with high end graphics, video work and as such I cannot see why you would want to get anything pricier.

Install was easy and instructions clear. Was a little worried as to what bios would come with but all up to date already so easy build.

Perfect board for the 8th/9th series Intel processors. The bios is easy to setup with easy AI overclocking controls. The on-board low level LEDs are subtle adding interest with its fading colour change light but not to the extent of being a laser light show. Great for gaming and general computing needs. I also like the ASUS brand finding their products to be reliable and stable. The order process from CCL was seamless who are now firmly on my favourites list. Did't know they did such a range of computer products. In summary, great board fro multi use computing (not just gaming) and great service from CCL.
