Awesome features!!!

This Rog got a premium price tag against it's same bracket. The beauty of the Asus premium one's is the layout of the bios. And the most important thing that Asus engineers put in here is the "Ai Features". It shows the summary ratings of P-cores and E-cores which got the lowest core voltage and highest ones. From there on you can adjust each core settings to overclock without any hassle's. And that gives justice to the price tag of this Rog.

And all Asus motherboards are backward compatible when it comes to coolers (air and AIO). I have a Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R which have a lga 1551 bracket on it. The bracket matches to the...view more

best z690 mobo with ddr4

purchased from black Friday with good price, however it is still expensive mobo. Beautiful design, especially come with lag1200 mount holes which works well with my old nzxt x62 aio. DDR4 means if you upgrade, you can keep your ddr4 ram rather than buy expensive ddr5.

8 of 10 from my review.

only downside is leak wifi driver after win11 installation.
