Designed with a heavy heatsink which comes with dark mirror and time carving design illuminating that symbolizes the timeless form and function as well as representing perfection in its purest form. Featuring the technology, high-speed transmission, ultra-performance, and industry's first M-Vision Dashboard, the MEG Z790 GODLIKE is developed to unleash the extreme gaming potential of the 13th Gen Intel Core processor and is ready to rule the tournament once again.

  • Extreme thermal and power solution
    The heat dissipation module is one of the biggest contributors to keeping GODLIKE efficient and cool. The flagship and exclusive cooling solution make it unnecessary for gamers to worry about temperature problems. The premium power solution, superior layout design, advanced PCB material and enhanced tuning parameter provide the extreme performance and long-lasting system stability without any compromise.
  • Lightning fast
    Onboard septuple M.2 connectors for the maximum storage performance with one Lightning Gen 5 solution. Lightning Gen 5 M.2 solution delivers 12,311MB/s read speed and 11,507 write speed to meet the demanding hardcore users. Double-sided M.2 Shield Frozr keeps M.2 SSDs safe while preventing throttling, making them run faster. The patented magnetic M.2 Shield Frozr design enables true "wire-less" RGB function, enhances the installation process and maximizes the storage performance.
  • Connectivity powerful
    Onboard 10G Super LAN and 2.5G LAN deliver the best online experience without lag. The Wi-Fi 6E solution supports 6GHz spectrum, MU-MIMO and BSS color technology, delivering speeds up to 2400Mbps.
  • M-Vision dashboard
    The touchable 4.5-inch full-color IPS LCD not only indicates the status of your gaming rig which combines hardware monitor and debug function, but also allows system operation and customization with touch control.
  • Illusion lighting
    MEG Z790 GODLIKE features Illusion Lighting effect that adopts exclusive multiple structure, which allows GODLIKE to displays dual patterns in one area. The non-overlapping dual patterns not only showoff the well-crafted of the GODLIKE, but also reinforce the DIY and MEG spirit.
  • Lightning Gen 5
    The fast PCI-e data transfer solution can reach 128GB/s of unidirectional transfer bandwidth of a x16 interface that has doubled compared to its previous generation. Optimized by Steel Armor design and server grade PCB, you can enjoy next-gen devices without any compromise.
