AI Overclocking

ROG AI Overclocking is an intelligent utility that helps you get the most out of your build by automatically profiling your CPU and cooling system to predict optimal voltage and frequency settings.

Accessible via the AI Suite software in Windows or directly through the UEFI, the intuitive AI Overclocking user interface enables users of all levels. A range of customizable settings are available for seasoned overclockers, and an auto-tuning option is available for beginners.

AI OVERCLOCKING AT A GLANCE

Designed by Experts

At the heart of AI Overclocking is a proprietary algorithm developed by ROG R&D engineers who worked with world-renowned overclockers to create a tool for users of all levels.

Predictive Edge

The algorithm analyzes your CPU and cooling system and, based on what it finds, predicts optimal settings. The software then automatically applies these settings to guide the clocking process, balancing frequency and voltage.

Real-time Adjustments

Workload, system temperature, fan speed and power draw are automatically monitored by the software, and the information is used to make real-time adjustments to ensure ongoing optimal performance.

Turn on your PC and put on a load on the processor to get a baseline reading of your CPU, cooling system capabilities.

Screenshot of AI Overclocking Guide

AI Overclocking Guide

The AI Overclocking Guide provides detailed information and instructions about how to tune your system manually. It can be accessed by hitting the F11 hotkey.

Screenshot of Core Group Loading

Core Group Loading

For the high-core-count processors in the Z590 series, AI Overclocking software lists data according to core group. This gives you adaptive control based on the status of core groups, and it provides target frequency and voltage estimations needed for manual tuning.

Screenshot of AI Overclocking in AI Suite

AI Overclocking in AI Suite

Onboard intelligence lets you automate overclocking with full, flexible control via 5-Way Optimization within AI Suite (in Windows).

AI Cooling

ASUS AI Cooling technology automatically manages and controls motherboard-connected fans to ensure optimal settings based on current system load and temperature.

SELF-ADAPTIVE FAN TUNING

CPU temperature detection

AI Cooling detects CPU temperatures and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate the lowest fan speed required to effectively cool the system and keep fan noise down.

Automated optimization

Under stable system loads, the software automatically lowers fan* speed to the optimal setting, decreasing fan noise without compromising performance.*Fans need to be connected to the following headers for AI Cooling control: CPU_FAN / CPU_OPT / CHA_FAN / M.2_FAN / H_AMP / RAD_FAN

Ongoing monitoring

AI Cooling continues to monitor the system and adjust fan speed based on current load.

Screenshot of FanXpert 4 One-Click Activation

One-click activation

AI Cooling can easily be activated via the Fan Xpert 4 dashboard in ASUS AI Suite 3. Once activated, it will override all manual controls.

Screenshot of FanXpert 4 main interface

Fan speed references

For those who prefer manual control, AI Cooling provides reference points on a graph, detailing fan speed in relation to temperature to provide a guide for fan settings.

AI Networking

The proprietary ROG GameFirst VI utility is designed to help all users — beginners, experts, and everyone in between — optimize network settings to ensure smooth online gameplay. New to this generation, GameFirst VI features AI-enhanced identification and boost technologies to ensure faster and smarter network optimization.

How It Works

Identification
