Product Description

Asus PRIME Z490-A LGA 1200 DDR4 ATX Motherboard

Intel® LGA 1200 socket: Ready for 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors

Enhanced power solution: 12+2 DrMOS power stages, 6-layer PCB, ProCool sockets, alloy chokes

and durable capacitors for stable power delivery

 AI Overclocking: Quickly optimizes CPU performance based on the CPU and cooler, achieving

results that are extremely close to manual tuning by experts

AI Cooling: Manages and controls all motherboard fans, automatically optimizing settings based on

current system load and temperature

5-Way Optimization: One-click, system-wide tuning delivers optimized overclocking and intelligent

cooling for CPU or GPU-intensive tasks

Comprehensive cooling: VRM heatsink, M.2 heatsink, hybrid fan headers and Fan Xpert 4

Next-gen connectivity: Intel® 2.5 Gb Ethernet, front USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C® and Thunderbolt™ 3

 

ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart, taking care of complex tuning with just one click. It

dynamically optimizes essential aspects of your system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.

5-Way Optimization is an automated tuning utility that optimizes overclocking and cooling profiles

for your unique system configuration.

Fans stay whisper-quiet for everyday computing, and deliver optimal airflow when the system is

crunching through CPU- or GPU-intensive tasks.

A stress test feature allows you to optimize and overclock for CPU- or memory-centric workloads.

 

TPU

CPU Performance Boost

The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is an intelligent system-tuning utility that automatically fine-tunes

voltages, monitors system stats, and adjusts overclocking parameters for optimal performance.

 

EPU

All-Around Energy Efficiency

The Energy Processing Unit (EPU) automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes energy savings with Away mode - a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.

 

Fan Xpert 4

Flexible Air- and Liquid-Cooling Controls

Fan Xpert 4 software provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AiO) coolers. Whether cooling with air or water, an Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode that reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum to keep your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks. Fans, water pumps and AiO coolers can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.

 

Digi+ VRM Control

Precise Digital Power Control

The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) delivers real-time control over voltage droop, automatically switching frequency and power-efficiency settings. It also allows you to fine-tune your CPU for ultimate stability and performance.

 

Turbo App

App-Specific Optimization

Turbo App allows you to define CPU
