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.
Certified military-grade TUF chokes deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, helping to improve system stability.
+20% temperature tolerance and 5X-longer lifespan.
Certified military-grade MOSFETs with lower RDS(on)*.
*Lower RDS(on) results in better power efficiency and reduced heat generation.
TUF LANGuard is a military-grade innovation that integrates advanced signal-coupling technology and premium surface-mounted capacitors to improve throughput, protecting the motherboard from lightning strikes and static electricity.
Optimized Thermal Design
The TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING(WI-FI) VRM and inductor array is coupled to a large heatsink that has ample surface area to deal with the thermals of Intel's latest processors.
ENHANCED EATX 8-PIN SOCKET
・ Solid and more durable
・ Prevent hotspots and connector failure
Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. This lowers impedance, which helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.
DDR4 OC 4266 MHZ+
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 signaling.
SETUP AND CONFIGURATION
TUF Gaming motherboards are designed to be easy to set up and configure just the way you want, even for first-time builders. With simplified CPU and memory overclocking to optimize and boost performance, intelligent cooling controls for better system stability, and helpful troubleshooting tools to get you up and running quickly if you encounter problems, TUF Gaming motherboards give you everything you need to build your dream gaming rig without adding complexity.
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.
Q-INSTALLER, NO DRIVER DISC REQUIRED
ASUS Q-Installer software provides automatic download and installation of drivers and utilities for your TUF Gaming motherboard. Choose just the options you want from a user-friendly interface and Q-Installer will do the rest.
FLEXIBLE COOLING CONTROLS
GPU TEMPERATURE SENSING
System temperatures are key to a stable gaming rig ― especially GPU temperatures. TUF Gaming motherboards include Fan Xpert 4 software that's able to intelligently control system fans based upon the input of multiple sensors, including the temperature of ASUS graphics cards*. This ensures that your TUF Gaming system stays perfectly cooled, no matter how long you play.
* ASUS GeForce 700 and later cards supported.
FAN XPERT 4
TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING (WI-FI) features the most comprehensive fan controls ever, configurable via Fan Xpert 4 and our award-winning UEFI BIOS.
With Fan Xpert 4 you're able to control system fans based on inputs from up to three temperature sources. For example, Fan Xpert 4 can be set to spin up the chassis fans in response to the GPU temperature. So, when the gaming action heats up, additional cooling kicks in — just when you most need it. Choose your temperature sources and thresholds, from motherboard and CPU to GPU, and leave Fan Xpert 4 to do the rest.
AND ASTHETIC CUSTOMIZATION
TUF Gaming Z390 provides a complete, high-performance gaming package with a long list of features to improve your experience, including ultrafast networking for smoother online gameplay, immersive audio with positional cues for FPS gaming, and onboard RGB lighting that syncs with attached accessories to help you create the perfect gaming atmosphere.
ntel Integrated Ultra Wi-Fi support
TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING (WI-FI) features the latest Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 MU-MIMO and wide 160MHz channels, for wireless speeds of up to 1.73Gbps.* In fact, its integrated Wireless-AC 9560 Wi-Fi adapter pushes wireless data up to 2X faster than other Wi-Fi solutions — so you'll get fast, smooth transfers, even when your rig is further away from the router. Intel Wireless-AC 9650 also offers Bluetooth 5 for connections that are up to 2X faster than ever before, and with up to 4X the range.
* Maximum achievable speed depends on router.
MORE THROUGHPUT, LESS CPU USAGE
TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING (WI-FI) features the very latest Intel Ethernet. Intel's LAN has the advantage of reducing CPU overhead and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput for faster, smoother data transfer.
