ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming rocks core ROG features to help you max out all aspects of system performance, handing you the tools needed to realize your system’s true potential.
ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming has an innovative double-decker heatsink design that allows the M.2 SSD to be stacked atop of the PCH heat sink, which is then topped off with an additional metal heatsink for the M.2 drive. The two heatsinks are thermally isolated to prevent the PCH and M.2 from affecting each other. The double decker design not only cleverly maximizes the board space on miniITX board, but also dramatically improves heat dissipation, cooling the M.2 SSD by up to 20°C for better stability and enhanced gaming performance while featuring a stylish angular design to enhance the look of ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming builds.
One click takes care of all that complex tuning. ASUS 5-Way Optimization makes your PC smart. It dynamically optimizes essential aspects of the system, providing overclocking and cooling profiles that are tailored for your rig.

*A head-related transfer function is an audio algorithm
derived from sound data recorded through a dummy head. Test tones are played from a spherical grid around
the dummy head to obtain subtle changes in sounds that come from different directions. The results are
combined into an algorithm that allows Sonic Studio’s virtual surround to process sound true to life.
**Please note Sonic Studio Link is available only in version 3.6 and later.
