Powered exclusively by 8th and 9th Generation Intel Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors, the WS Z390 Pro LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard from ASUS is designed for compute-intensive workloads. It blends GPU performance, comprehensive tuning options, and robust connectivity for prosumers and content creators. This motherboard will fit in ATX sized cases, supports the LGA 1151 socket, the Intel Z390 chipset, and is compatible with Windows 10 (64-bit), Windows Server 2016 (64-bit), and Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit).
The ATX form factor of the WS Z390 Pro can support up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM over four dual-channel slots, or 16GB per slot at speeds of 4266 (OC), 4200 (OC), 4133 (OC), 4000 (OC), 3866 (OC), 3800 (OC), 3733 (OC), 3600 (OC), 3466 (OC), 3400 (OC), 3333 (OC), 3300 (OC), 3200 (OC), 3000 (OC), 2800 (OC), 2666, 2400, and 2133 MHz. For storage, there are six SATA III 6 Gb/s ports, two U.2 connectors, and two M.2 Socket 3 with M key, both of which support type 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs. The WS Z390 Pro supports Intel Optane Memory and allows its storage to be configured as RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10.
There is also one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port (rear panel), five USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports (rear panel), four USB 2.0 Type-A ports (rear panel), one USB 3.1 Gen 2 connector (front panel), plus more internal USB headers that support USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A or Type-C, USB 3.1 Gen 1, and USB 2.0. For those looking to expand their system using PCIe, there are four PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (single at x16, dual at x16/x16 mode, triple at x16/x8/x8 mode or quad x8/x8/x8/x8 mode) and one PCIe x4 slot (max at x4 mode).
For delivering sharp, clear graphics, this motherboard supports Intel HD Graphics with one HDMI 2.0 output and one DisplayPort 1.2 output. The DisplayPort supports a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2304 @ 60 Hz or 24 Hz, while the HDMI port supports a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz or 24 Hz. The integrated graphics chipset also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), the Rec.2020 wide color gamut, HDCP 2.2, and two simultaneous displays. With Multi-Stream Transport technology, three displays can be daisy chained together. For users looking to take advantage of multiple GPUs, the WS Z390 Pro supports Quad-GPU and 4-Way NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX technologies.
Using the Realtek ALC S1200A 8-channel HD audio codec, the WS Z390 Pro can support audio with higher fidelity than standard controllers. Audio can also be output using the integrated five 3.5mm audio outputs, S/PDIF output, or front panel audio connectors. This motherboard is also equipped with features such as ASUS OptiMem II, Digital Power Design, Ai Charger, Turbo LAN, Crystal Sound 3, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and more. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

4-Pin PWM/DC Fan
Each onboard header supports the auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
High-Amp Fan Support
A dedicated fan header that can supply up to 3A for high-speed, high-current fans.
A dedicated header that supplies over 3A for high-performance PWM or DC water pump.
A dedicated header that can supply over 3A to high-performance PWM or DC water pumps.
Fan Extension Card Header
Includes three additional DC or PWM fan headers, plus three thermal-probe headers.
Power Delivery Enhancements
The WS Z390 Pro's CPU VRM utilizes Dr. MOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency needed by Intel processors.
ProCool Power Connector
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.
