ROG STRIX Z790-F GAMING WIFI
Beneath its dark heatsinks and brooding aesthetic, the ROG Strix Z790-F packs a power solution and overclocking features that push Intel® 13th Gen Core processors to new heights. Flush with advanced thermal management for quieter builds, along with support for DDR5, PCIe 5.0, and WiFi 6E, this well-equipped powerhouse delivers massive bandwidth for everything.

DIY-FRIENDLY FEATURES

PCIE® SLOT Q-RELEASE
A physical button unlocks the first PCIe slot’s security latch with one press, 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 SSD from an M.2 slot. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive, eliminating the need for a traditional screw.

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.

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

Q-LED
Four onboard LEDs indicate power status and identify problems with CPU, memory, graphics card, or boot device for quick diagnosis.

ALL-ROUND PERFORMANCE
Robust power delivery, speedy storage and memory, and comprehensive cooling elevate any build with the ROG Strix Z790-F at its center.

AI 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
The top PCIe 5.0 x16 SafeSlot is well-equipped for the increased size and bandwidth of next-gen graphics cards. Zippy storage options abound with four PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, all featuring robust heatsinks to maximize performance.

POWER ARCHITECTURE
16 + 1 power stages rated to 90A each deliver ample current in order to drive 13th and 12th Gen Intel® Core™ 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 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.

SIX-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.

DDR5 DOMINATION
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-F, 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.​

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-F 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.

VRM HEATSINK ARRAY
Covering the power solution are two thick heatsinks connected by a heatpipe, sharing cooling capacity across VRMs and providing ample surface area and mass to handle the power needs of high-performance Intel 13th Gen processors.​

M.2 BACKPLATE​
An integrated backplate helps ensure that high-performance drives 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 PWM/DC fan header 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
Each header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.

LEADING CONNECTIVITY
The ROG Strix Z790-F delivers next-gen connectivity for ultrafast data transfers and low-latency networking. Those perks are joined by an advanced audio solution that allows you to pick out the smallest cues and home in on your opponents.

WIFI 6E
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of newly available spectrum in the 6 GHz band to provide up to seven 160 MHz channels for ultrafast throughput and better performance in dense wireless environments.
* WiFi 6E availability and features are dependent on regulatory limitations and co-existence with 5 GHz WiFi

2.5G ETHERNET
Low-latency gaming, speedy file transfers, and high-resolution video streaming are among the many perks of onboard Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet.

USB 3.2 GEN 2X2
The Strix Z790-F comes loaded with two USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C® connectors for speedy data transfers up to 20 Gbps. One is a port on the rear I/O; the other can be attached to the chassis front panel and it also features Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 technology to quickly charge devices up to 30W.

SUPREMEFX
ROG SupremeFX is a unique blend of hardware and software technologies that provide superior audio. The Strix Z790-F implementation features the ALC4080 codec for high-resolution playback up to 32-bit/384 kHz across all channels. Front-panel output is streamed through the integrated Savitech amplifier that can drive high-fidelity acoustics to a wide variety of speakers and headsets.

PLAY IN STYLE
Brooding aesthetics and Aura Sync RGB controls allow the ROG Strix Z790-F to effortlessly flex between blending in and showing off.

UNDENIABLY ROG STRIX
When the lights are out, the ROG Strix Z790-F blends into the shadows with its dark pcb and black metal heatinks. Activate the customizable RGB logo on the shroud, and the board makes a bold statment. Transparent layers and subtle brand-centric details add aesthetic depth and texture. Pair the Strix Z790-F with other products from the diverse ROG ecosystem to create a fully-customized gaming setup that reflects your personal style.

OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION
ROG Strix motherboards feature ASUS Aura technology, enabling full lighting control and a variety of presets for both onboard RGB LEDs and third-party accessories. Effects can be easily synced across compatible ROG graphics cards, monitors, keyboards, and mice to give your setup a unified look.

COOLER COMPATIBILITY
The ROG Strix Z790-F bears the same LGA 1700 socket as the Z690 models, so it is backward compatible with all coolers that supported the previous generation, including all AIO offerings from ASUS and ROG.
