Experience DDR5 Overclocking Strength
PUSH FREQUENCY AND TIMINGS TO THE MAXComprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. For DDR5, the Strix Z690 lineup breaks performance limits by providing a stacked suite of overclocking parameters for not only high-speed kits, but even entry-level memory modules that have a locked power management IC (PMIC).
A DEDICATED CIRCUIT FOR DDR5Ordinarily, a restricted PMIC that has been unlocked requires the system to be fully power-cycled each time memory voltage is adjusted. ROG motherboards leverage onboard hardware and firmware to cleverly work around this irksome limitation, enabling voltage adjustments to be applied through the same soft system-reset process employed for previous generations of DDR memory.
2. Alloy chokes and durable capacitors
3. 8+8-pin PROCOOL II power connectors
4. DIGI+ power control (VRM)
5. Multi-layered 6 layer PCB
The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal performance.
AI Overclocking at a Glance
INTELLIGENT MOTHERBOARDROG engineers developed and extensively-tested intelligent software solutions to ensure your system stays in optimal condition. Tuning is now faster and smarter than ever before. ASUS AI Overclocking profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration and push each system to its limits.
DESIGNED BY EXPERTSFor each new motherboard platform, ROG in-house experts painstakingly profile thousands of processors and system configurations to hone the highly advanced algorithm of AI Overclocking.
PREDICTIVE EDGEThe algorithm analyses your CPU and system cooling, and then defines optimal voltage and frequency settings. Predicted values can be applied manually or engaged automatically to save time.
REAL-TIME ADJUSTMENTSOnce activated, the AI Overclocking utility continually tracks vital system stats, making profile adjustments to account for changes in system usage or ambient temperature.
Top-level PC Performance Demands Exceptional Cooling
COOLING INNOVATIONThe ROG Strix Z690-F Gaming WiFi is armed with Two thick VRM heatsinks connected by a heat pipe and bonded to a pre-mounted metal I/O shield provide ample surface area and mass to handle the power needs of high-performance 12th Gen Intel® processors. Specially engineered thermal pads efficiently transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink. Multiple M.2 heatsinks help maintain onboard M.2 NVME SSDs at optimal temperatures for consistent performance and reliability. An integrated M.2 backplate helps ensure that high-performance drives deliver peak performance, even when airflow is restricted.
