Durable. Stable. Reliable.
The onboard VRM of TUF GAMING Z590 series motherboards utilize 14+2 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 11th Gen Intel Core processors demand.
2. 6-Layer PCB Design
Multiple PCB layers shift heat away from critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.
3. ProCool Sockets
Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with PSU power lines. The resulting lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.
4. TUF Components
Certified military-grade TUF chokes and TUF capacitors deliver rock-steady power to the CPU, improving system stability.
5. Digi+ VRM
The integrated Digi+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times.
The extensive surface area of the large, high-mass heatsink covers the VRM and choke to improve heat dissipation. The total surface area of the VRM heatsink is 1.6X that of the previous generation.
High-quality thermal pads help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to the heatsink.
2. Three M.2 slots with heatsinks
Each M.2 slot has a dedicated heatsink keep the M.2 SSDs at optimum operating temperature to ensure consistent performance and reliability.
Cooler by Design
Multiple temperature sources
Each header can be set to monitor and react to three user-configurable thermal sensors for workload-based cooling, and all settings can be easily managed by Fan Xpert 4 or via the UEFI.
AiO water-cooling set
An integrated AiO system enables full control of PWM or DC water pumps, making it perfect for custom or self-contained cooling setups.
4-pin PWM/DC fan
All onboard chassis fan headers support auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
Comprehensive Fan Controls
*Actual transmission speed will be lower than theoretical maximum speed.
**The M.2_1 supports PCIe 4.0, and the M.2_2 and M.2_3 support PCIe 3.0.
PCIe 4.0 M.2 (up to 64 Gbps)
Revisions to the motherboard’s trace routing provide the latest Intel processors with unrestricted access to memory bandwidth. ASUS OptiMem II technology carefully maps memory signal pathways across different PCB layers to reduce vias and adds shielding zones that significantly reduce crosstalk.
DRAM Overclocking Performance
USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C
Thunderbolt™ 4 Support
*An audio splitter (3.5 mm audio jack Y-cable) is necessary when using a 3.5 mm headset.
Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation
Outshine the Competition
SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance. Manufactured via 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.
ESD Guards prolong the life of components while preventing damage from electrostatic discharge, providing protection for up to +/- 10 kV of air discharge and +/- 6 kV of contact discharge — greatly surpassing the respective industry standards of +/- 6 kV and +/- 4 kV.
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.
DRAM overvoltage protection
Onboard resettable fuses prevent overcurrent and short-circuit damage. This extends beyond I/O ports to DRAM to safeguard the lifespan of your system and connected devices.
Stainless-steel back I/O panel
TUF Gaming motherboards have a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel back I/O panel bonded with chromium oxide to provide a 3X-longer lifespan versus traditional panels.
