Power delivery enhancements

DR. MOS

The Prime Z370-A II's CPU VRM utilizes Dr. MOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that Intel's latest processors demand.

ProCool power connector

Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. This lowers impedance, which helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

Tune it your way

5-Way Optimization

One-click overclock and cooling, done!

ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. One click takes care of complex tuning, dynamically optimizing essential aspects of the system to provide overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.

  • An automated tuning utility that optimizes overclocking and cooling profiles for your unique system configuration.
  • Fans stay whisper-quiet with everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU or GPU-intensive tasks.
  • Stress test function helps optimize and overclock for CPU- or memory-centric workloads.

Make your memory go faster

ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces and vias to the optimal PCB layer, and our T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements lead to more headroom for overclocking and improved stability, allowing memory speeds of DDR4-4000 and beyond with all slots populated.

OC Design – ASUS Pro Clock Technology

PRIME Z370-A II includes a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator that extends CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and BCLK overclocking control, providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from the Intel Core 8th Generation processors.

Cooler by design

PRIME Z370-A II features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

ASUS Fan Holder

With the all-new ASUS Fan Holder increasing airflow your Prime Z370 Series motherboard's VRM area is simple. Just screw on a 40/50mm fan, mount the bracket on the heatsink, and hook the fan up to a header for a targeted cooling boost. With the Fan Holder and fan in place, VRM temperatures are reduced by up to 25oC — perfect for your overclocking adventures.

Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS

The smoothest, slickest mouse-controllable 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 will help you quickly find your way, quickly and easily.

Ultrafast connectivity

M.2

Speed up with onboard M.2 up to 32Gbps

With x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds. It's the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, providing fast access to data.

M.2 heatsink

Keep your SSD cooler

PRIME Z370-A II has an ultra-efficient heatsink to reduce M.2 SSD temperatures by up to 20°C — and that means optimal storage performance and improved SSD longevity.

3D-Printable M.2 fan mount

Active cooling for your SSD

ASUS PRIME Z370-A II features dedicated mounting points for the ASUS 3D-printable M.2 cooler. Supporting a 40mm fan, the M.2 cooler teams up with the onboard M.2 heatsink to reduce drive temperatures by up to 25°C, ensuring your high-performance SSD always delivers peak performance.

Intel Optane memory

Intel Optane memory ready

Intel Optane™ is a revolutionary non-volatile memory technology supported by PRIME Z370-A II. Intel Optane memory modules accelerate attached storage to reduce boot and load times, so everything feels faster and more responsive.

USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A & Type-C

Ultimate-speed 10Gbps with USB 3.1 Gen 2 onboard

With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A™ and reversible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™ ports, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps.

ThunderboltEX 3 Card Support

Experience blistering ThunderboltTM 3 speeds and any-way-up connectivity

PRIME Z370-A II provides full support for a ThunderboltEX 3* card. An Intel-certified Thunderbolt™ 3 add-on card enables breathtaking bi-directional speeds of up to 40Gbps through a single cable — up to 4X faster than other PC data-transfer protocols. Beyond sheer bandwidth, Thunderbolt 3 supports daisy-chaining up to six devices, utilizes a Type-C reversible connector for compatibility with the latest USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C devices, and meets USB Power Delivery specifications for fast, high-power charging of up to 36W.

*ThunderboltEX 3 card available separately for purchase.

Intel Ethernet

More throughput, less CPU usage

PRIME Z370-A II features the very latest Intel Ethernet. Intel's LAN has the advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.

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, SafeSlot integrates the slot with fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

Built to Last

ASUS is the world's foremost motherboard manufacturer, renowned for our unique Design Thinking approach. Our exhaustive testing exceeds industry standards, supported by high-quality components for exceptional real-world protection. Our motherboards are proven to be compatible with more than 1,000 components and devices, and each new model undergoes a minimum of 8,000 hours of strict validation. ASUS gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your motherboard is fit for all environments and applications. By choosing ASUS, you also gain the freedom to select outstanding component options, for trouble-free DIY experiences.

Upgrade to unrivalled audio

Outstanding audio

Realtek codec and unique design features for pristine, powerful audio

PRIME Z370-A II 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.

Visual beauty, virtual worlds

Aura Sync

Outshine the competition

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

* 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.
** LED Strips and Aura-compatible devices are sold separately.
