the ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore ATX Motherboard. This RGB-enabled motherboard is ideal for new or experienced gamers who want a strong foundation for their next build.

The Z790 chipset uses an LGA 1700 socket made for Intel 12th, 13th, and 14th gen CPUs. With four SATA III, five M.2 slots, and two dual-channel DDR5 RAM slots, this motherboard delivers fast load times and efficient multitasking. Two PCIe 5.0 x16 and two PCIe 4.0 x4 slots are available for network and graphics cards. This motherboard can connect wirelessly using Wi-Fi 7 (802.11be) for networks and Bluetooth 5.4 for peripherals and accessories. Additionally, there are several USB-C and USB-A ports for wired peripherals. ROG SupremeFX ALC4080 7.1 audio provides surround sound while gaming so you can accurately pinpoint sounds in-game.

This ROG Maximus Z790 Formula motherboard features ASUS AI Overclocking that profiles your CPU and cooling to predict an optimal configuration for overclocking. These predicted values can be used as they are or as a launching ground for further experimentation.
With a differential sensing circuit and delicate IC, this motherboard allows you to track voltages more accurately.

Power Design
A teamed power stage design improves thermal headroom through low RDSON that reduces switching and conduction losses. Additionally, Dual ProCool connectors ensure a reliably snug connection to the EPS 12V power lines. Input and output filtering is provided by solid-polymer capacitors rated to last thousands of hours at high operating temperatures.

Random Access Memory
With a 96GB ceiling for available DDR5 RAM capacity, the two dual-channel DIMM slots support up to 5600 MHz normally or 8400 MHz speeds while overclocking. ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile II allows users to increase memory performance with optimized clock speeds even with restricted modules that do not provide an XPM or EXPO profile.

Heat Sinks
The M.2 slots, VRM, and ROG DIMM.2 card each get heat sinks to help dissipate heat and keep temperatures cool. Embedded heatpipes increase mass and surface area.

This motherboard uses dual water-temperature headers and a flow-rate header to track information vital to maintaining a custom water loop. You can find the information in ASUS' Armoury Crate software. The water pump header can supply over 3 amps to PWM or DC water pumps.

External I/O
One 20 Gb/s USB-C port.
Five 10 Gb/s USB-A ports.
Four 5 Gb/s USB-A ports.
A single Wi-Fi module.
A single 2.5 Gb Ethernet port.
Five gold-plated audio jacks for headphones, speakers, and microphones.
One S/PDIF out port.
One BIOS FlashBack button and one Clear CMOS button.
A single PS/2 keyboard purple port and Mouse green port.

Internal I/O
Fan and cooling
A single 4-pin connector each for the CPU fan header, CPU OPT fan header, and AIO pump header.
Four 4-pin chassis fan headers.
One header for the W PUMP+, as well as one 2-pin water in header, one 2-pin water out header, and one 3-pin water flow header.

Wireless Networking
Use Wi-Fi 7 to wirelessly access the internet at speeds 2.4 times faster than Wi-Fi 6E. To wirelessly connect to accessories and peripherals, this motherboard supports Bluetooth 5.4 for quick communication between your PC and your devices.

AI Enhanced
Using AI, the ROG Maximus Z790 Formula features two-way noise cancelation when speaking over video calls, gaming matches, and more. GameFirst, now integrated into Armoury Crate, uses AI to optimize networking performance and has dedicated support for NVIDIA GeForce NOW to ensure low latency during streamed cloud gaming sessions.

AI Suite 3
The AI Suite 3 software helps boost CPU performance while maintaining stability. Tune your system voltages and overclocking and assign applications to specific processor cores to prioritize computing power where it's most useful.
ROG UEFI BIOS allows you to tweak, configure, and tune your build. It has simplified options for new users as well as deep advanced options for seasoned builders. Rename your SATA ports, set up user profiles, track changes, restore your SSDs to factory settings, and more using the included BIOS.

Synchronize all your ASUS ROG gaming peripherals and components with your motherboard using ASUS' Aura Sync software. Featured preset and customizable lighting effects will unify your setup.

Armoury Crate
Armoury Crate gives you control over the functionality of ASUS' supported gaming products. Change settings for fans, water pumps, and AIO coolers. Access drivers, tools, and user manuals, or register your products. This is where you can manage your cooling and access GameFirst for AI enhanced profiles.
