Alternatively, the built-in HDMI port allows you to take advantage of integrated CPU graphics. Four additional PCIe 3.0 x1 slots are available alongside a Thunderbolt 3 header for compatible expansion cards.

The Z390 GAMING X also features a cFosSpeed-optimized Gigabit Ethernet port and delivers deep and immersive 7.1-channel surround sound through the Realtek ALC892 codec. You can customize your computing experience using the RGB headers to connect light strips, which can be customized with dazzling effects. Windows 10 64-bit is required to take advantage of all the motherboard's features.

Enhanced Cooling

  • A large surface area heatsink, heatpipe, and thick thermal pad work to deliver lower MOSFET temperatures.
  • Thermal guards help to quickly dissipate heat from the M.2 solid-state drives to avoid speed throttling.
  • Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange fan headers to correspond with the thermal sensors located across the motherboard so that the system stays cool while maintaining a high level of performance for games and other demanding applications.
  • Fan Stop lets you to take control of your computer's noise level by allowing specified fans to halt when the system drops to a designated temperature level. These settings may be customized according to your preferences.
  • Hybrid Fan Headers automatically detect the connected liquid- or air-cooling systems, enabling Smart Fan 5 to monitor information such as flow-rate.

Storage and Memory

  • Three M.2 slots are available, supporting up to type 22110 SATA and PCIe NVMe SSDs.
  • Six SATA III headers are available for hard drives and 2.5" SSDs.
  • RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 configurations are supported.
  • Intel Optane memory modules are supported, which enhance mechanical disk drives by caching frequently accessed data.
  • Up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4-4400 (OC) memory can be installed across four slots.

Designed for Durability

  • The GAMING X's double locking brackets keep PCIe slots securely affixed to the motherboard.
  • A stainless steel shield reinforces the PCIe connectors, providing extra strength to support heavy graphics cards.
  • The memory slots include stainless steel shielding, which is designed to prevent bending, twisting, and distortion in addition to protecting against possible electrostatic interference.
  • Solid plated ATX 24-pin and 8-pin power connectors deliver a stable power supply to key components.
  • This motherboard features resistors with an anti-sulfur layer that help prevent sulfur compounds in the air from causing electrical malfunctions.
  • An integrated I/O shield makes the motherboard installation process easier.
  • The DualBIOS feature provides you with both a main and backup BIOS to protect against malfunctions due to viruses, power failure, and other issues.

Electrical Performance

The Z390 GAMING X features a 10+2 phase PWM + Lower RDS(on) design to efficiently deliver power to critical components.

AMD CrossFireX Support

Installing multiple graphics cards will enhance the computer's performance for demanding tasks such as CAD, 3D rendering, video editing, and more. This motherboard supports Quad-GPU and 2-Way AMD CrossFireX configurations.

Immersive Audio

  • The Realtek ALC892 audio codec provides vibrant 7.1-channel surround sound.
  • High-quality, durable capacitors help to deliver clear sound to audio equipment.
  • An LED-illuminated audio noise guard path separates sensitive audio components from areas that may cause distortion and noise.

Network Performance

  • The Gigabit Ethernet port provides a fast network connection with high-speed data transfers using compatible devices.
  • The cFosSpeed network traffic management application to automatically allocate bandwidth so that the highest network priority goes to games or specified applications.

RGB Lighting

You can customize your computer by installing RGB lighting strips to sync with the motherboard's incredible lighting profile effects.
