Tune it Your Way with AI Overclocking

AI Overclocking


ASUS AI Overclocking makes automatic tuning faster and smarter than ever before. Available in Windows or directly through the UEFI, it profiles the CPU and cooling to predict the optimal configuration for each individual system.

5-Way Optimization

OVERCLOCKING INTELLIGENCETake care of complex tuning with just one click. ASUS 5-Way Optimization is a system-wide tuning utility that overclocks the processor and tunes fan speeds to ensure the best balance between cooling and acoustics. The automated CPU tuning feature of 5-Way Optimization leverages the same onboard intelligence as AI Overclocking but goes further by running a Prime95 based stress test to deliver a result that's well-tuned from the beginning.

Fan Xpert 4

FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLSWith Prime Z390-A you have comprehensive control over fans via Fan Xpert 4 or the media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you are cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. Extreme Quiet mode reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum assuring your system stays whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS

INCLUDING EZ MODE & ADVANCED MODEThe UEFI BIOS is an early waypoint on any PC-building journey, and Prime Z390-A offers one of the best in the business. Featuring Easy and Advanced Modes for quick and easy access to find the setting you're looking for. Fine-tune individual fans simply by dragging a curve with the mouse using intuitive graphical fan control. Discover useful settings for your setup with ASUS Technology.

PREDICTIONAI Overclocking monitors system vitals like power draw, temperatures, and fan speeds to gauge overclocking performance.

ASUS OptiMem II Technology

ASUS OptiMem II Technology

INCLUDING MEMOK! II AUTOMATED recovery to provide Intel's latest processors' unfettered access to memory bandwidth, we've reimagined motherboard trace routing from the ground up. Our OptiMem II tech carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and also adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk. And to further enhance overclocking headroom for fully stacked memory configurations, we've employed a highly customized T-Topology layout that delivers time-aligned signalling.

MemOK! II automatically fixes boot failures that arise due to memory overclocking and instability. When a DRAM-related POST error occurs, the motherboard adjusts memory parameters until the system is able to start.

Ultra-fast Connectivity

On-board M.2

SPEED UP WITH ON-BOARD M.2 UP TO 32GBPSWith x4 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds. It’s the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, providing fast access to data.
