ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi II
Style and substance come together like never before in the feature-packed ROG Strix Z790-E II. From its vibrant multi-layered I/O shroud to its stacks of VRM cooling, it is a conversation piece that also delivers enhanced DDR5 performance, ample PCIe 5.0 slots and the DIY-friendly Q-Design feature set that makes building and upgrading a breeze.

DIY-FRIENDLY FEATURES

Q-Antenna
With Q-Antenna, attaching a WiFi antenna to your PC is now easy and fast. Instead of slowly rotating two fasteners until they finally lock in, they just snap into place. Less hassle, and more consistent performance.

Q-LED
The on-board Q-LED troubleshooting lights give PC builders a quick indicator to confirm that key components ― CPU, RAM, graphics card, storage devices ― are functioning normally during startup. Builders can use the Q-LED feature to correct power delivery issues affecting their motherboard, and it can also alert them when memory modules have not been properly installed--even before attempting to boot a newly built PC.

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 & BIOS FlashBack™
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™ 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.

Q-CODE
The on-board LED panel shows 2-digit diagnostic codes, providing a valuable reference for troubleshooting common boot problems and hardware issues.

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

ALL-ROUND PERFORMANCE
Robust power delivery, speedy storage and memory, and comprehensive cooling elevate any build with the ROG Strix Z790-E II 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
Fully embracing the new standard, the Strix Z790-E offers end-to-end PCIe 5.0 support. The topmost x16 expansion slot is Gen 5-ready, and is protected with a SafeSlot retention bracket to bear the weight of the latest graphics cards. One of the onboard M.2 slots is geared for blistering 16 GB/s read and write speeds thanks to its PCIe 5.0 interface, while all the rest can deliver still-impressive 8 GB/s transfers. Every M.2 slot is covered with substantial heatsinks to dispatch the heat of next-gen drives.​

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 8 GT/s mark on the Strix Z790-E II, 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.

DIMM Flex
DIMM Flex provides enthusiasts with a powerful new way to overclock their DDR5 memory modules. It employs specialized circuitry that can boost performance or address potential stability issues, depending on temperature readings. When temperatures are nominal, it can use the extra headroom to increase speeds and efficiency. And when temperatures increase, it can adjust memory behavior downward to maintain stability.

AEMP II
ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II (AEMP II) is an exclusive firmware feature that allows users to achieve supreme memory performance and compatibility with optimized clock speeds, even when they're using PMIC-restricted memory modules that do not provide an XMP or EXPO profile. Developed through a flexible training method, AEMP II simplifies the process of fine-tuning memory settings beyond the baseline configuration, all while ensuring system stability. This applies whether you are maximizing the potential of an entry-level module or preparing a high-speed kit for ultimate performance.

Now, AEMP II offers even more flexibility. With the latest firmware update, AEMP II allows users to optimize the performance of a four-DIMM DDR5 RAM configuration, even with a mixture of different brands and dies. Increasing the memory capacity of your build by adding additional DIMMs has never been easier — with AEMP II, you can get optimized memory performance even when all four memory modules are not an exact match, provided that all four DIMMs have the same capacity.

* Results may vary according to the capabilities of your CPU and memory modules.
** The testing chart is based on a test with an Intel i9-14900K processor and 4x16 GB SK Hynix DDR5-5600 non-ECC UDIMMs, model HMCG78AGBUA081N

M.2 COMBO-SINK
This M.2 heatsink integrates a direct-contact U-shaped heat pipe to achieve optimal operating temperatures, and it has been upgraded with a larger surface area for even more cooling.

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.

VRM HEATSINK ARRAY
Covering the power solution are two thick heatsinks with strategic airflow channels for increased heat dissipation while powering high-performance Intel 14th Gen processors.

CPU FAN HEADERS
A dedicated pair of PWM/DC fan headers 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
The Strix Z790-E II features five chassis fan headers, each supporting auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.​

LEADING CONNECTIVITY
Lightning-fast networking keeps the Strix Z790-E II in sync with the outside world for uninterrupted gaming and creation. In addition to breakneck data transfers, connected devices can now top-up quickly thanks to 30W charging support. And SupremeFX audio makes sound clear and punchy to shape truly immersive experiences.

WIFI 7
With Multi-Link Operation (MLO)*, WiFi 7** can outperform WiFi 6E to deliver faster speeds, higher reliability and increased data transfer efficiency.

SUPREMEFX
ROG SupremeFX is a unique blend of hardware and software technologies that provide superior audio. The Strix Z790-E II 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
Black PCB and heatsinks compliment most hardware, and customizable RGB lighting furthers the flexibility. Pair the Strix Z790-E II with other products from the diverse ROG ecosystem to create a fully customized gaming setup that reflects your personal style.

UNDENIABLY ROG STRIX
Diagonal slats, brushed aluminum, and bold RGB have become hallmarks of the ROG aesthetic, and the Strix Z790-E II bears all of them with pride. But for this generation, translucent diffusers line the I/O shroud and the Q-Release array, softly contrasting the metallic heatsinks nearby.

OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION
