Tune It Your Way
Comprehensive controls form the foundation of the ASUS Prime series. The Prime Z590 motherboard packs flexible tools to tune every aspect of your system, enabling performance tweaks to perfectly match the way you work to maximize productivity.
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 enhances 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.
ASUS AI Overclocking
ASUS AI Overclocking is an intelligent utility that helps you get the most out of your build by automatically profiling your CPU and cooling system to predict optimal voltage and frequency settings.
Accessible via the AI Suite software in Windows or directly through the UEFI, the intuitive AI Overclocking user interface enables users of all levels. A range of customizable settings are available for seasoned overclockers, and an auto-tuning option is available for beginners.
ASUS AI Cooling function will automatically manage and control motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.
The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
Cool to the Core
Prime Z590 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.
Two M.2 heatsinks take care of the three M.2 slots, warding off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfers. The heatsinks are held in place by captive screws and can be moved to other M.2 slots.
VRM Heatsink and Thermal Pads
Two massive VRM heatsinks and thermal pads improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance. A bundled fan holder provides additional cooling options.
Stack Cool 3+
2-ounce copper layers draw heat away from critical components to keep them at their optimal operating temperatures.
Build on a Solid Foundation
Prime Z590 series is built to handle the additional cores and increased bandwidth of 11th Generation Intel Core processors. ASUS Z590 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.
Robust Power Design
Stable power is essential to extract every last bit of performance out of 11th Generation Intel Core processors. Prime Z590-A is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core count CPUs.
ASUS OptiMem II
Revisions to the motherboard’s trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
Three M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps)
Prime Z590-A offers a total of three M.2 slots, with one slot supporting data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCI Express 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
PCIe 4.0 Slot
ASUS Z590 motherboards are designed specifically for 11th Gen Intel Core CPUs, and offer PCIe 4.0 connectivity for the latest GPUs. The wide bandwidth and superfast transmission speeds allow you to create feature-rich builds that can handle high loads effortlessly.
Small Details Make a Big Difference
Prime Z590 series adds the nuanced details that improve every experience, from exclusive codecs that provide pristine audio quality to intuitive RGB lighting controls that let you customize your system to create a uniquely personal look.
TWO-WAY AI NOISE CANCELATION
This utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone and incoming audio, while preserving vocals at the same time. This removes distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises so you can hear and be heard with crystal clarity while gaming or in calls.
Outshine the Competition
A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips and devices connected to the onboard RGB headers – and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
Protect Your Graphics Card
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured in a single step using a new insert-molding process, SafeSlot integrates fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.
