Power Design

Digital power control and an array of DrMOS power stages ensure the ROG Strix Z390 Gaming has the muscle to control Intel's latest CPUs.

  • ProCool Power Connector

    Compared with traditional power inputs, ProCool sockets are built to tight specifications to ensure flush contact with the PSU power lines. The lower impedance helps to prevent hotspots and connector failure.

  • Digi+ Power Control

    The Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and clean power delivery to the CPU.

  • DrMOS

    The ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming's CPU VRM utilises DrMOS 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.

  • Thermal Solution

    The Strix Z390-F Gaming uses high-quality thermal pads to help transfer heat from the inductor and phase array to a heatsink that has ample surface area to deal with the power demands of all Coffee Lake processors.

  • High Quality Choke and Caps

    Superior chokes and durable capacitors are engineered to resist extreme temperatures and provide up to 110% better performance than the industry standard.
