DDR5 OVERCLOCKING STRENGTH

Comprehensive memory tuning options are the cornerstone of ROG motherboards. For DDR5, the Maximus Z690 lineup breaks performance limits by providing a stacked suite of overclocking parameters for not only high-speed kits, but even entry-level memory modules that have a locked power management IC (PMIC).


A dedicated circuit on the motherboard safely circumvents DDR5 memory PMIC restrictions, allowing you to step past the default 1.1-volt limit and push frequency and timings to the max.


Ordinarily, a restricted PMIC that has been unlocked requires the system to be fully power-cycled each time memory voltage is adjusted. ROG motherboards leverage onboard hardware and firmware to cleverly work around this irksome limitation, enabling voltage adjustments to be applied through the same soft system-reset process employed for previous generations of DDR memory.


TEAMED POWER ARCHITECTURE

Modern CPU architectures up the ante for motherboard power design by transitioning from deep power saving modes to full load almost instantaneously. The latest ROG VRM architecture rises to the challenge by utilizing teamed power stages to rapidly swing current, while maintaining exemplary thermal.

COOLING

An ambition to maximize performance calls for an appropriately powerful platform. Enter the CrossChill EK III VRM block, empowering enthusiasts to break the limits of conventional voltage regulation with a hybrid cooling system that sails past the core power requirements of 12th Gen Intel Core processors while maintaining rock-steady thermals.


CROSSCHILL EK III

The CrossChill EK III water block leverages a fusion of passive and liquid cooling to keep VRMs operating at high efficiency. The nickel water channel hidden within the block quietly cools the Formula’s MOSFETs up to 63.7°C more than air alone, while the standard G1/4" threaded fittings are designed to integrate into existing setups with minimal effort.


THERMAL MANAGEMENT

ROG Maximus Z690 Formula features comprehensive cooling options that are configurable via Fan Xpert 4 or the UEFI BIOS.


ROG WATER-COOLING ZONE

Dual water-temperature headers and a flow-rate header feed information straight into the AI Suite utility, allowing you to track coolant temperatures and the flow rate of the entire loop.


CONNECTIVITY

The latest connectivity solutions ― WiFi 6E, PCIe® 5.0 and two Thunderbolt™ 4 USB Type-C® ports ― empower supersmooth networking and blisteringly fast file transfers. And for enthusiasts looking for high-fidelity audio, the SupremeFX ALC4082 codec takes gaming immersion to a whole new level while also saving a PCIe slot.


USB 3.2 GEN 2X2 TYPE-C® FRONT-PANEL CONNECTOR WITH QUICK CHARGE 4+

USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 adds an additional lane that can boost Type-C data transfers with speeds of up to 20 Gbps. The port also features Quick Charge 4+ technology that can quickly charge devices up to 60 W with a PCIe power supply cable plugged into the nearby 6-pin connector.


TWO ONBOARD THUNDERBOLT 4 USB TYPE-C® PORTS

Each port delivers up to 40 Gbps of bidirectional bandwidth for the latest high-speed devices and drives. Thunderbolt 4 also supports up to two external 4K displays and extends PCIe bandwidth to up to 32 Gbps.

LIVEDASH OLED

The ROG Maximus Z690 Formula includes LiveDash, a built-in 2-inch OLED panel that shows useful information and features customizable graphics. During the power-on, self-test (POST) phase, the OLED shows key stats in simple language using traditional POST codes. In normal operation, the panel can be programmed to show CPU frequency, device temperatures, fan speeds or water-cooling information. You can also personalize the default OLED GIF with a preferred image or animation.


Three Onboard M.2 slots

ROG Maximus Z690 Formula features three onboard M.2 slots, with two offering support for PCIe 4.0 SSDs.


SUPREMEFX

ROG SupremeFX audio technology delivers an exceptional 113 dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection to provide best-ever recording quality. There's also a low-dropout regulator for clean power delivery to the SupremeFX ALC4082 codec, and an ESS® 9018Q2C integrated DAC.


ESS® SABRE 9018Q2C

The ESS® SABRE 9018Q2C integrated DAC amplifier is capable of providing -115 dB total harmonic distortion (THD+N) for playback that conveys all the subtlety and nuances of the audio track. In addition, the 121 dB dynamic range (DNR) provides an extremely low noise-floor, further accentuating dynamics and punch.

ROG HYPER M.2 CARD PCIE 5.0 READY

If users need more M.2 storage or even faster data transfers, the bundled ROG Hyper M.2 Card features two more slots, one of which is a PCIe 5.0 and ready to perform at up to twice the speed of the accompanying PCIe 4.0 slot.


LEVEL UP PERFORMANCE

The dashboard-style control panels of AI Suite 3 and Armoury Crate let you fine-tune almost every aspect of your ROG Maximus Z690 Formula system with ease. Get the best balance between performance, cooling, stability, and efficiency via simple and intuitive interfaces.


ACCURATE VOLTAGE MONITORING

Conventional motherboards use single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn't ideal, leading to a large disparity between the actual voltage fed to the CPU and the value reported to software. ROG Maximus Z690 Formula features a differential-sensing circuit that simplify overclocking and tuning by allowing you to track voltages more accurately.


ARMOURY CRATE

Armoury Crate is a software utility designed to give you centralized control of supported gaming products, making it easy to tune the look and feel of your system. From a single intuitive interface, Armoury Crate helps you customize RGB lighting and effects for compatible devices and synchronize them with Aura Sync to create a unified lighting scheme across your system. In addition, Armoury Crate’s Fan Xpert4 tool provides comprehensive control over fans, water pumps and all-in-one (AIO) coolers.


GRAPHICS CARD HOLDER

Featuring a magnetic base, adjustable slider and hinge, the ROG Graphics Card Holder banishes sag and provides support where it’s needed most.
