PRIME Z690M-PLUS D4
ASUS Prime series motherboards are expertly engineered to unleash the full potential of 12th Generation Intel® processors. Boasting a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions and intelligent tuning options, Prime Z690M-Plus D4 provides users and PC DIY builders a range of performance tuning options via intuitive software and firmware features.
FLEXIBILITY
Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime Z690 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work to maximize productivity.
Flexible Air- and Liquid-Cooling Controls
ASUS Fan Xpert 4 software provides comprehensive control over fans and all-in-one (AiO) cooler. 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 and AiO cooler can also be controlled via the UEFI BIOS.
Advanced Tuning for Serious Tweakers
An intuitive Advanced mode offered via the UEFI lets you take complete control. A built-in search feature makes it easy to find options, and various advanced functions let you intelligently make nuanced adjustments so you can dial in performance just the way you want.
Search Function
Quickly and easily find the option or setting you need.
ASUS User Profile
Port configuration settings between different BIOS versions or share them with friends.
COOLING
Prime Z690 series is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.
VRM Heatsinks and High-quality Thermal Pads
Two massive VRM heatsinks and high-quality thermal pads improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.
Cooler by Design
Prime Z690 series features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 software or via the UEFI BIOS.
Multiple Temperature Sources
Each header can dynamically reference three thermal sensors. Fan Xpert 4 allows you to map the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards to optimize cooling for GPU- and CPU-intensive tasks.
AIO Pump Header
A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
4-Pin PWM/DC Fan
Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
PERFORMANCE
Prime Z690 series is built to handle the additional cores and increased bandwidth of 12th Generation Intel® processors. ASUS Z690 motherboards provide all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible transfer options.
Power Design
Stable power is essential to extract every last bit of performance out of 12th Generation Intel processors. Prime Z690M-Plus D4 is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core-count CPUs.

1. ProCool Connectors
Proprietary connectors augment the motherboard’s link to the PSU with 4 pin+8 pin connectors that pass 12 volts of power directly to the processors. Each jack features solid pins that can handle more current than hollow-pin connectors.

2. 10+1 DrMOS
A VRM with 10+1 DrMOS delivers the power and efficiency that the latest Intel processors demand.

Memory
DDR4 5333 (OC)
Improvements to trace routing design provide the latest Intel processors with enhanced access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce path distance, and it adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Storage
Three M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps)
Prime Z690M-Plus D4 offers a total of three M.2 slots that support data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCIe® 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.

* Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.

PCIe® 5.0 Slot
The 12th Gen Intel processors bring PCIe® 5.0 support to the market. PCIe® 5.0 offers twice the data transfer speed of PCIe® 4.0, making it robust enough to handle new data-heavy tasks. PCIe® 5.0 also brings other benefits, such as electrical changes to improve signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and backward compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express.
USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 Type-C®
Numerous USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including rear USB Type-C® connector with fast USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 for transmission speeds of up to 20 Gbps.
Thunderbolt™ 4 Support
Prime Z690M-Plus D4 features Thunderbolt™ 4 support via an on-board header. With the latest Intel-certified ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 add-on card, it can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to an 8K resolution display. It can also provide up to 100 watts of power to fast-charge devices.
M.2 Slot (key E)
Prime Z690M-Plus D4 motherboard comes along with a M.2 Slot (Key E) which can support type 2230 Wi-Fi/BT and Intel® CNVi (Integrated Wi-Fi/BT) module*

* The Wi-Fi/BT module is purchased separately.

SafeSlot
PCIe® 5.0 is 2x faster than PCIe® 4.0, so we adapted our SMT manufacturing process for the faster SafeSlot, to ensure the highest data speeds. SafeSlot is a reinforced metal sheath added to a PCIe® slot to keep a card firmly installed.
