ASUS Intelligent Control makes your PC smart. Along with taking care of complex tuning and dynamically optimising essential aspects of your system, it offers intelligently simplified options for newcomers to PC DIY, as well as more comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
AI Cooling ll
AI Cooling II balances the thermals and acoustics of any build with a single click. A proprietary ASUS algorithm slashes unnecessary noise while running a quick stress test, and then it monitors CPU temperatures to dynamically adjust fans to optimal speeds.
The renowned ASUS UEFI BIOS provides everything you need to configure, tweak and tune your system. It offers intelligently simplified options for PC DIY beginners, as well as comprehensive features for seasoned veterans.
PRIME Z790-A WIFI-CSM motherboard is engineered with multiple onboard heatsinks and an array of hybrid fan headers to ensure your rig stays cool and stable under intense workloads.
Three M.2 heatsinks cover four M.2 slots, warding off throttling that can occur with M.2 storage during sustained transfers.
VRM Heatsinks and Thermal Pads
The extensive surface area of the massive heatsinks cover the VRMs and chokes to improve heat dissipation. Together with specially engineered thermal pads, they improve heat transfer from the MOSFETs and chokes for better cooling performance.
Cooler by Design
PRIME Z790-A WIFI-CSM features comprehensive cooling controls that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 software or via the UEFI BIOS.
The PRIME Z790-A WIFI-CSM motherboard is built to handle the high core counts and bandwidth demands of 13th Gen Intel Core Processors. ASUS Z790 motherboard provides all the fundamentals to boost daily productivity, so your system will be ready for action with stable power, intuitive cooling and flexible data transfer options.
Robust Power Design
Stable power is essential to extract every last bit of performance out of Intel processors. The PRIME Z790-A WIFI-CSM is geared to cater to the demands of these high-core-count CPUs.
Four M.2 slots (up to 64 Gbps)
PRIME Z790-A WIFI-CSM offers a total of four M.2 slots that support data-transfer speeds of up to 64 Gbps via PCIe 4.0, enabling quicker boot-up and app load times with OS or application drives.
*Actual transmission speeds will be lower than the theoretical maximum speed.
PCIe 5.0 Slot
PCIe 5.0 offers twice the data transfer speed of PCIe 4.0, making it robust enough to handle new data-heavy tasks. PCIe 5.0 also brings other benefits, such as electrical changes to improve signal integrity, backward-compatible CEM connectors for add-in cards, and compatibility with previous versions of PCI Express.
USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C
A batch of USB ports support high-end rigs loaded with peripherals, including a rear Type-C connector with ultrafast USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 for transmission speeds of up to 20 Gbps.

PRIME Z790-A WIFI-CSM motherboard features USB4 support via a Thunderbolt (USB4) header. With an ASUS add-on card*, PRIME motherboards can enable bi-directional speeds of up to 40 Gbps on a single cable, while providing power to fast-charge device. Additionally, this card has a daisy-chain function for multi-screen connection and supports up to dual displays with 4K resolution.
*ASUS add-on card is sold separately.
Onboard WiFi 6E technology takes advantage of the newly available radio spectrum in the 6 GHz band. It provides up to three times the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band and up to seven 160 MHz bands to deliver ultrafast wireless networking speeds and improved capacity as well as better performance in dense wireless environments.
*WiFi 6E availability and features are dependent on regulatory limitations and co-existence with 5 GHz WiFi.

Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation
This utility leverages a massive deep-learning database to reduce background noise from the microphone and incoming audio, while preserving vocals at the same time. This removes distracting keyboard clatter, mouse clicks and other ambient noises so you can hear and be heard with crystal clarity while gaming or in calls.
A well-tuned enthusiast system deserves a matching aesthetic. ASUS Aura offers full RGB lighting control with a variety of functional presets for the built-in RGB LEDs as well as strips and devices connected to the onboard RGB headers ― and it can all be synced with an ever-growing portfolio of Aura-capable hardware.
