Asus PRIME Z490M-PLUS

                                                     

Powered exclusively by 10th Generation Intel Core, Pentium Gold, and Celeron processors, the Prime Z490M-PLUS LGA 1200 Micro-ATX Motherboard from ASUS boasts a robust power design, comprehensive cooling solutions, and intelligent tuning options. It provides daily users and DIY PC builders a range of performance tuning options via intuitive software and firmware features. This motherboard will fit in micro-ATX sized cases, supports the LGA 1200 socket, the Intel Z490 chipset, and is compatible with Windows 10 (64-bit).

The micro-ATX form factor of the Prime Z490M-PLUS can support up to 128GB of DDR4 RAM over four dual-channel slots, or 32GB per slot at speeds of 4400 (OC), 4266 (OC) 4133 (OC), 4000 (OC), 3866 (OC), 3733 (OC), 3600 (OC), 3466 (OC), 3400 (OC), 3333 (OC), 3300 (OC), 3200 (OC), 3000 (OC), 2933 (OC), 2800 (OC), 2666, 2400, and 2133 MHz non-ECC unbuffered memory. For storage, there are five SATA III 6 Gb/s ports and two M.2 Key M sockets. One M.2 slot supports type 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs, while the other supports type 2242, 2260, and 2280 PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA SSDs. The Prime Z490-A supports Intel Optane Memory and allows its storage to be configured as RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10.

There is also one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port (rear panel), one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port (rear panel), two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports (rear panel), two USB 2.0 Type-A ports (rear panel), plus additional internal USB headers that support USB 3.2 Gen 1 and USB 2.0, and one PS/2 combo port. For those looking to expand their system using PCIe, there is one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot (supports x16 mode), one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot (supports x4 mode), and two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. Network connectivity is achieved using an Intel I219-V Gigabit Ethernet port.

For delivering sharp, clear graphics, this motherboard supports a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2304 at 60 Hz using DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 1.4b, and DVI-D outputs. For users looking to take advantage of multiple GPUs, the Prime Z490M-PLUS supports AMD 2-Way CrossFireX.

Using the Realtek ALC887 8-channel HD audio codec, the Prime Z490M-PLUS can support audio with higher fidelity than standard controllers. Audio can also be output using the integrated three 3.5mm audio outputs. This motherboard is also equipped with features such as Aura Sync RGB, DIGI+ VRM, LANGuard, Overvoltage Protection, SafeSlot Core+, a Stainless Steel Back I/O, and more. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

Whether you build a new PC or upgrade the existing one, the motherboard is the most vital component to choose when you have already picked the processor of your choice.
 

It is important to keep a few things in mind while purchasing the mainboard: 


Pick up the Right Socket: You can single out a great CPU from either Intel or AMD, but whatever CPU you choose, make sure your mainboard has the right socket for the selected CPU. The latest mainstream AMD chips use AM4 sockets while current Intel 9th Gen Core CPUs require LGA 1151v2 sockets.


Motherboard Sizes: Motherboards typically come in three sizes from largest to smallest: ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ATX motherboards. ATX motherboards offer the highest number of RAM and expansion slots. If you are looking for a budget build, you can use a smaller chassis with the micro or mini boards, but you'll have to settle for fewer PCIe slots, RAM banks, and other connectors.
 

Number of RAM Slots: Most mainstream boards these days have four RAM slots, although Mini-ITX models often have just two, and high-end boards frequently offer eight. The amount of slots, of course, limits the amount of RAM you can install.
 

Motherboard ports: It’s essential to check the I/O area on a motherboard to make sure it has the external connection options you need. You may need more USB 3 ports while others may want more audio ports. Among the most common ports, there are USB 3, USB 2, audio, USB type C, USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2, HDMI, Display port, PS/2 and Thunderbolt 3 ports. Ports one probably want the most are USB 2 and USB 3 Gen1 ports, as the first one is perfect for keyboard, mouse, and many other devices and the later one work with most peripherals. USB 3.1 Gen2 and USB Type-C ports will come handy in the near future, although most peripherals do not support this standard yet.
 

Motherboard Chipsets: CPU mainly dictates the compatible chipset options. For Intel motherboards, one can choose from the cheaper options that can’t be overclocked or the expensive ones that can. Chipset with the letter 'Z' in the name has the overclocking feature and chipsets with letters 'B', 'H', 'Q'… do not come with this particular feature.
