ROG STRIX Z790-E GAMING WIFI II
Style and substance come together like never before in the feature-packed ROG Strix Z790-E II. From its vibrant multi-layered I/O shroud to its stacks of VRM cooling, it is a conversation piece that also delivers enhanced DDR5 performance, ample PCIe 5.0 slots and the DIY-friendly Q-Design feature set that makes building and upgrading a breeze.
With Q-Antenna, attaching a WiFi antenna to your PC is now easy and fast. Instead of slowly rotating two fasteners until they finally lock in, they just snap into place. Less hassle, and more consistent performance.
PCIE® SLOT Q-RELEASE
A physical button unlocks the first PCIe slot’s security latch with one press, greatly simplifying the process of detaching a PCIe card from the motherboard when it’s time to upgrade to a new GPU or other compatible device.
The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an SSD from an M.2 slot. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive, eliminating the need for a traditional screw.
CLEAR CMOS & BIOS FLASHBACK™
The Clear CMOS button quickly resets BIOS settings to factory default. It can also be used to reboot the PC if incorrect BIOS settings have been selected.
BIOS FlashBack™ is a safe and simple way to update BIOS. Just drop the (UEFI) BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB stick, plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack port, and press the button. Updates can even be performed without having memory or a CPU installed.
The on-board Q-LED troubleshooting lights give PC builders a quick indicator to confirm that key components ― CPU, RAM, graphics card, storage devices ― are functioning normally during startup. Builders can use the Q-LED feature to correct power delivery issues affecting their motherboard, and it can also alert them when memory modules have not been properly installed–even before attempting to boot a newly built PC.
The on-board LED panel shows 2-digit diagnostic codes, providing a valuable reference for troubleshooting common boot problems and hardware issues.
This convenient button removes the need to manually jump hard-to-reach pins during testing and troubleshooting.
Next-gen connectivity and low-latency networking are hallmarks of the ROG ecosystem, and the Strix Z790-A II delivers both of them in full. Joining them is an advanced audio solution for immersive sound so you can pick out the slightest cues and nuances.
With Multi-Link Operation (MLO)*, WiFi 7** can outperform WiFi 6E to deliver faster speeds, higher reliability and increased data transfer efficiency.
