Engineered with military-grade components, an upgraded power solution and a comprehensive set of cooling options, this motherboard delivers rock-solid performance with unwavering gaming stability.

When you build with a TUF Gaming motherboard, you also benefit from the TUF Gaming Alliance — an ASUS collaboration with trusted industry partners that ensures easier building, best compatibility, and complementary aesthetics from components to case.

ROCK-SOLID PERFORMANCE
With upgraded power delivery and comprehensive cooling options to fuel the latest Intel® CPUs, plus support for faster memory and storage, TUF Gaming Z490-Plus is the perfect foundation for your next high-core-count battle rig.

DrMOS
The onboard VRM of TUF Gaming Z490-Plus utilizes 12+2 DrMOS power stages that combine high-side and low-side MOSFETs and drivers into a single package, delivering the power and efficiency that 10th Gen Intel Core processors demand.

6-LAYER PCB DESIGN
Multiple PCB layers shift heat away from critical components, providing more headroom to push CPUs beyond stock speeds.

ProCool Sockets
ENHANCED EATX 4-PIN & 8-PIN SOCKETS
- Extreme durability
- Prevent hotspots and connector failure

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

DTS Custom for gaming headsets
Hone your battle skills with exclusive DTS Custom onboard audio. Utilizing advanced emulation techniques to create positional cues via stereo headphones, DTS Custom takes onboard audio to a new frontier. With three presets ― Aerial, Soundscape, and Tactical ― for different genres, you'll have a distinct advantage in every game.

AERIAL MODE
Experience audio as though hovering above the game world, with sound coming from ahead — perfect for MOBA, RTA, strategy and sports titles!

SOUNDSCAPE MODE
