Designed for gaming enthusiasts looking to take their experience to the next level, the robust ASUS ROG STRIX Z790-A GAMING WIFI LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard drives performance with an enhanced electrical layout, PCIe 5.0 technology, and vast connectivity options for gaming peripherals.

At the heart of the ROG STRIX Z790-A is an LGA 1700 socket and Z790 chipset, allowing you to leverage a wide range of 12th and 13th Gen Intel processors. Four DDR5 Dual-Channel RAM slots allow you to install up to 192GB of memory with speeds up to 7800 MHz when overclocked, providing you with increased multitasking and rendering capabilities. Four M.2 PCIe and four SATA III storage interfaces allow you to combine an array of storage drives to build a massive gaming library. A single PCIe 5.0 x16 slot is available for resource-demanding graphics cards while two PCIe 4.0 x16 (in x4 mode) and one PCIe 3.0 x1 slot support a wide range of utility cards. Between the back panel and internal headers, you get access to several USB 3.2 Gen 1, Gen 2, and Gen 2×2 ports and internal headers, offering plenty of support for peripherals such as mice, keyboards, and controllers as well as resource-demanding devices like external drives. Wireless devices can utilize Bluetooth 5.3 technology for a reliable cable-free experience. Connect to your wireless network with Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) or use the integrated 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port if you prefer a wired connection.

AI Equipped
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence, the ROG STRIX Z790-A can boost performance with automatic AI overclocking and cooling, enhancing your games and productivity without compromising thermal capabilities. AI noise cancellation is an audio-focused utility used to reduce background sound, ensuring others can hear you clearer when engaging in team-focused titles or delivering presentations remotely. GameFirst VI is an AI networking tool that prioritizes and optimizes your network connection for smoother online gameplay, essential for competitive online titles.
Enhanced Power Solution
Equipped with 16+1 70A power stages with ProCool II connectors, alloy chokes, and durable capacitors, the ROG STRIX Z790-A delivers stable power throughout the entire motherboard, maintaining electrical volume whether you are performing simple tasks or operating at full power during resource-demanding processes.
Comprehensive Cooling
To ensure your system remains cool under heavy loads, the ROG STRIX Z790-A motherboard incorporates a large VRM heat sink for capacitors and chokes as well as integrated double-sided M.2 heat sinks and a unique PCH fanless heat sink, delivering better thermal performance while preventing throttling. Hybrid fan headers and Fan Xpert 4 software control fans and liquid pump elements for enhanced cooling that can be modified to your preference.
Connectivity
Between the backplate and the internal headers, the ROG STRIX Z790-A offers robust connectivity suitable for your peripherals. USB-A and USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 and Gen 2 ports deliver up to 5 and 10 Gb/s data transfer speeds, respectively, suitable for webcams, mics, and external storage drives. A USB-C 3.2 Gen 2×2 port gives you up to 20 Gb/s data transfer speed for resource-demanding devices such as storage arrays and audio interfaces. A front panel USB-C 3.2 Gen 2×2 port not only helps transfer data but also offers up to 30W Power Delivery to charge and support resource-demanding peripherals. You can expand your connectivity with an internal Thunderbolt 4 header, allowing you to utilize high-speed connectivity that supports fast transfer speeds and Power Delivery technologies.
7.1-Channel Audio
Immerse yourself in your favorite games with high-fidelity audio backed by the ROG SupremeFX 7.1-channel ALC4080 codec and Savitech SV3H712 amplifier, working together to drive clear and crisp audio. Gold-plated audio jacks and premium capacitors optimize audio conductivity for a reliable signal, preventing static and other interference.
Additional Enhancements
Several on-board enhancements help with the installation process while also providing additional support for the long-term with SafeDIMM RAM seating, PCIe 5.0 Safeslot, Q-LED, Q-Code, M.2 Q-Latch, CPU socket lever protector, and a pre-mounted I/O shield. Additionally, BIOS FlashBack and Clear CMOS offer support on a software level by allowing you to easily update the BIOS without assembling your entire system and reset the CMOS, respectively. You also get access to Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation which improves audio quality using artificial intelligence for clear sound.
