IMPROVED OVERCLOCKING FOR FASTER GAMING PERFORMANCE

A dedicated base-clock generator designed for 8th Generation Intelprocessors allows overclocked base-clock (BCLK) frequencies up to 432MHz* — or even beyond. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control, providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.

5-WAY OPTIMIZATION - ONE-CLICK OVERCLOCK AND COOLING, DONE!

One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.

・ An automated tuning utility that optimizes 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.
・ All-new stress test that allows users to optimize and overclock for CPU or memory-centric workloads.

With ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming you have comprehensive control over fans and all-in-one (AIO) coolers, via either Fan Xpert 4 or our media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water, Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also an Extreme Quiet mode, which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum — keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

INTEL ETHERNET - LOWER CPU WORKLOAD, HIGER TCP & UDP THROUGHPUT

Featuring the latest Intel Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. Intel Ethernet controllers have a natural synergy with their processors and chipsets, reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput, so there's more power for games and other tasks.

M.2 HEATSINK - PERFECTED COOLING FOR UNLEASHING PERFORMANCE

ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming is equipped with an M.2 heatsink integrated into the PCH heatsink. With a huge cooling surface, the M.2 heatsink perfectly chills an inserted M.2 SSD — for consistent performance and reliability. Featuring a stylish angular design, the M.2 heatsink adds a beautiful touch to the build.

DUAL PCIE 3.0 M.2 - LET YOUR SSD SCREAM AT SPEEDS OF UP TO 32GBPS

Dual PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots provide NVMe SSD RAID support for an incredible performance boost. Create a RAID configuration with up to three PCIe 3.0 storage devices via two M.2 slots and a PCIe x16 slot to enjoy the world's fastest data-transfer speeds.

SUPREMEFX - SHIELDED AUDIO, SUPERIOR SOUND

ROG Strix's SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 113dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for best-ever recording quality and 120dB on line-out for crystal-clear sound! We've also added a low-dropout regulator for cleaner power delivery to the SupremeFX S1220A codec, plus Texas Instruments RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps for high gain with low distortion. It all adds up to audio that envelops you as never before!

SONIC STUDIO III

Sonic Studio now supports HRTF-based (head-related transfer function) virtual surround for VR headsets, casting an immersive aural landscape that draws you deeper into the action. The intuitive Sonic Studio interface also offers a range of EQ options, allowing you to tailor acoustics to suit personal preferences or the characteristics of your headset.

OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION

A well-tuned 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 connected to the onboard RGB headers. And it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.

2X2 WI-FI WITH MU-MIMO -ONBOARD WI-FI WITH TRANSFER SPEEDS UP TO 867MBPS

Next-level 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 dual-band 2.4/5GHz antennas offer up to 867Mbps transfer speeds and the very latest Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology ensures that every connected user experiences the best wireless and online speeds!
