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