Build smart and easy with ASUS Prime Z370.

Power Delivery Enhancements

DR. MOS: The Prime Z370-A II'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 that Intel's latest processors demand.

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.

Tune it your way

5-Way Optimization: ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. One click takes care of complex tuning; dynamically optimizing essential aspects of the system to provide overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.

  • An automated tuning utility that optimizes overclocking and cooling profiles for your unique system configuration.
  • Fans stay whisper-quiet with everyday computing and deliver optimal airflow when the system is crunching through CPU or GPU-intensive tasks.
  • Stress test function helps optimize and overclock for CPU- or memory-centric workloads.

CPU performance boost: Unleash your PC's full performance with the ASUS Al Suite 3 utility. The TurboV Processing Unit (TPU) is the intelligence behind our automated system-tuning utility; offering the ability to fine-tune voltages; monitor system stats; and adjust overclock parameters for optimal performance.

All-round energy efficiency: With the Energy Processing Unit (EPU) you'll enjoy system-wide power savings. The EPU automatically optimizes power consumption and maximizes savings with Away mode-a smart setting that creates an extreme energy-saving scenario by shutting down unused I/O controllers.

Flexible cooling controls for air or liquid: With PRIME Z370-A II you have comprehensive control over fans; water pumps; and even all-in-one (AIO) coolers - all via Fan Xpert 4 or our media-acclaimed UEFI. Whether you're cooling with air or water; Auto-Tuning mode intelligently configures all parameters with a single click. There's also Extreme Quiet mode; which reduces all fan speeds to below the default minimum - keeping your system whisper-quiet when performing light tasks.

Precise digital power control: Digi+delivers real-time control over voltage droop; switching frequency and power - efficiency settings; allowing you to fine-tune CPU voltage regulation for ultimate stability and performance.

App specific optimization for professionals and gamers: Whether you're a professional designer or hardcore gamer; you'll feel the benefit of the ASUS-exclusive Turbo App. This intuitive tool allows you to define CPU overclocking; apply fan profiles; prioritize network data and optimize audio setting at app level - so your PRIME Z370-A II system is perfectly optimized for whatever you're doing.

Make your memory go faster

ASUS OptiMem preserves memory signal integrity by routing memory traces and visa to the optimal PCB layer; and our T-Topology layout ensures time-aligned signaling by balancing trace lengths between memory slots. These enhancements lead to more headroom for overclocking and improved stability; allowing memory speeds of DDR4-4000 and beyond with all slots populated.

Improved stability and overclocking with all slots populated

OC Design - ASUS Pro Clock Technology

PRIME Z370-A II includes a dedicated base-clock (BCLK) generator that extends CPU and memory overclocking margins. This custom solution works in tandem with the TPU to enhance voltage and BCLK overclocking control; providing the flexibility to extract every ounce of performance from the Intel Core 8th Generation processors.

Cooler by design

PRIME Z370-A II features the most comprehensive cooling controls ever; configurable via Fan Expert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.

  • Multiple temperature sources: Each header can be set to monitor and react to three thermal sensors; and via Fan Xpert 4 you can even assign a sensor to monitor the temperature of supported ASUS graphics cards - for optimal cooling during GPU- or CPU-intensive workloads.
  • AIO pump: A dedicated PWM/DC header for self-contained water-cooling setups.
  • 4-pin PWM/DC fan: Each onboard header supports auto-detection of PWM or DC fans.
  • ASUS Fan Extension Card support: Includes three additional DC or PWM fan headers; plus three thermal-probe headers.
  • Smart protection: A dedicated integrated circuit protects each fan header from over-temperature and over-current.

ASUS Fan Holder

With the all-new ASUS Fan Holder increasing airflow your Prime Z370 Series motherboard's VRM area is simple. Just screw on a 40/50mm fan; mount the bracket on the heatsink; and hook the fan up to a header for a targeted cooling boost. With the Fan Holder and fan in place; VRM temperatures are reduced by up to 25oC - perfect for your overclocking adventures.

Media-acclaimed UEFI BIOS

The smoothest; slickest mouse-controllable graphical BIOS has been improved to make it even more appealing. Whether you're a PC novice or a seasoned over clocker; EZ and Advanced modes will help you quickly find your way; quickly and easily.

Quickly apply a CPU overclock to improve system performance; or configure a RAID array for faster data retrieval and backups
