There are basic paper specifications and various features on the back.

Currently, the ROG STRIX Z790 series of motherboards only come in ATX and Mini ITX specifications. There’s no sight yet of the M-ATX G series, with only E/H/F/A/I models available through Taiwan channels at present.

The ROG STRIX Z790-E is a mainstream ATX spec, measuring 30.5 x 24.4cm. It’s compatible with mainstream mid-tower case installations and can effortlessly cater to the demands of multimedia and multi-device expansion. The details are enhanced with translucent plastic armor, lending a futuristic, tech-forward aesthetic.

ATX board type specifications, the appearance style is more inclined to the technical armor style.
On the back of the motherboard, there is a pattern surrounded by the words ROG STRIX.

The motherboard’s power supply VRM block is aided by two heatsinks that enhance the heat dissipation process. A heat pipe integrated into the heatsink quickly channels heat from the power supply chip to the heatsink for more efficient cooling. The heatsink installation holes maintain the overlapping design used by ROG in the past, enabling the installation of LGA1700/1200 radiators and ensuring better compatibility with older radiators.

The Z790 motherboard supports Intel 12th/13th generation Core i9/i7/i5/i3, Pentium, and Celeron processors with LGA1700 pins. However, with a BIOS update, the Z690 chipset can also support Intel’s 12th/13th generation processors. Whether it’s worth upgrading from the Z690 to the Z790 will depend on whether the small enhancements and upgrades on the Z790 motherboard are compelling enough to justify the purchase.

Now, let’s examine the diverse expansion slots available on the ROG STRIX Z790-E. Located at the top left corner of the motherboard is a dual 8-Pin processor ATX_12V ProCool II metal power supply slot. Adjacent to it is a CPU_OPT (Fan and Pump socket) slot, capable of providing a power supply capacity of 1A/12W.

ATX_12V dual 8-Pin processor ProCool II metal power supply socket on the upper left corner of the motherboard, and CPU_OPT (Fan and Pump socket).

On the upper right corner of the motherboard, you’ll find slots for CPU_FAN, AIO_PUMP, CPU_OV (CPU Over Voltage jumper), ADD GEN2_1 (ARGB Gen2), and RGB_HEADER (12V 4-Pin RGB).

Both the CPU_FAN and AIO_PUMP slots can provide a maximum power supply capacity of 1A/12W. For users with integrated or split water cooling systems, it’s advisable to connect the pump’s power supply cable to the AIO_PUMP slot first, as this slot is configured to automatically run at full speed.


The four-slot DDR5 DIMM single-side clip memory slot accommodates up to four DDR5 memory modules with a combined maximum capacity of 128GB. This means each memory module can have a maximum capacity of 32GB. The memory overclocking frequency is advertised to reach up to 7800+ MT/s(oc), although this depends on the official memory QVL compatibility report. The slot supports Intel XMP 3.0 (Extreme Memory Profile) technology certification for one-click memory overclocking.

When installing memory, it’s recommended to opt for a 2 DIMMs dual-channel memory set, often chosen at purchase. These should be installed in the A2 and B2 slots (the second and fourth slots from the left). Placing the two memory modules in these positions enables them to operate at higher frequencies more easily.

4x DDR5 DIMM memory slots, supporting up to 128GB, 7800+ MT/s(oc) memory expansion.

Situated at the upper right corner of the motherboard are Q-LEDs, a Q-Code LED, a quick power-on button, a 24-Pin motherboard power supply slot, a front USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C (20Gb/s) slot, two USB 3.2 Gen1 slots (supporting four front USB 3.2 Gen1 installation ports), and four SATA 6Gb/s ports.

The front expansion USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C slot not only supports 20Gb/s data transmission bandwidth, but it also features a USB Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 30W fast charging function. The effectiveness of this fast charging function largely depends on the cable/socket hardware provided by the case expansion device.

The Q-LEDs are straightforward Debug lights that allow you to quickly identify any issues with motherboard components during the self-test process that could prevent the machine from booting up. If an error occurs during this process, the Q-Code indicator will display a two-code error. These codes can be cross-referenced with the Q-Code error code table in the manual for debugging actions.

Beneath the ROG STRIX Z790-E, you’ll find system panel slots, three 4-Pin CHA_FAN chassis fan power supply slots, two USB 2.0 slots (supporting four front USB 2.0 installation ports), an Alternative PCIe mode switch, two ADD GEN2 slots (5V 3-Pin ARGB Gen2), a Thunderbolt expansion slot, and an HD_AUDIO audio source slot.

The Alternative PCIe physical mode switch employs three settings—AUTO, 1st Step, and 2nd Step—to adjust the bandwidth of the motherboard’s PCIe slot using the CPU’s direct connection channel. In AUTO mode, the PCIe signal from the CPU defaults to its original value; in 1st Step, the PCIe signal from the CPU is set to 4.0 and LED1 turns green; in 2nd Step, the PCIe signal from the CPU defaults to Gen3 and LED2 turns yellow.

The Thunderbolt expansion slot can be paired with the “ASUS ThunderboltEX 4 Expansion Card”. Once the motherboard expansion slot is connected to the expansion card via a cable, the expansion card can provide two additional Thunderbolt 4 (USB C) and Mini DisplayPort 1.4 ports.

There are CHA_FAN1/4 two chassis fan 4-Pin power supply slots on the lower left corner of the processor.

The motherboard’s PCIe slot offers three x16 slots in total. However, only the first one (PCIEX16_1) provides full x16 bandwidth. This metal-reinforced slot, PCIEX16_1, offers PCIe 5.0 x16 specifications, ensuring sufficient physical strength and full bandwidth for direct plug-in installation of graphics cards. However, when an M.2 SSD is installed in the M.2_1 slot, PCIEX16_1 will automatically reduce its bandwidth to PCIe 5.0 x8—a detail users should be aware of.

The second and third PCIe 4.0 x16 slots (PCIEX16_2/PCIEX16_3) are x16 in installation length but only offer x4 bandwidth. These slots are suitable for expanding additional devices such as capture cards or sound cards, but they should not be used for installing a graphics card.

A special “Q-RELEASE” button is paired with the PCIEX16_1 slot. This button, designed with a spring structure, aids users in the disassembly process when removing an existing graphics card or PCIe device.
