Colorful iGame CVN Z490 Gaming Pro V20

The Colorful iGame CVN Z490 Gaming Pro V20 is another ATX model at launch. It seems to be the go-to motherboard for fans of the armed forces with not military-themed models around these days, e.g. GIGABYTE Z87 Sniper G1. The iGame CVN Z490 Gaming Pro V20 has a naval theme which is based on a CVN class aircraft carrier from the American military, with an entry-level feature set.

Looking at the Z490 Gaming Pro V20, it has silver heatsinks with the rear panel cover doubling up as one of two power delivery heatsinks. It has a black and grey printed PCB, with two full-length PCIe 3.0 slots which operate at x16/+4, with three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. There are two PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slots, with six SATA ports with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. In terms of memory support, it has four memory slots with support for DDR4-4000, with a maximum capacity of up to 128 GB.

On the rear panel is a single USB 3.2 G2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and two USB 2.0 ports. Also featured is a single Realtek RTL8111H Ethernet port, with a Realtek ALC892 powering the five 3.5 mm audio jacks and S/PDIF optical output. Finishing off the rear panel is a DisplayPort and HDMI pair of video outputs.

While it shouts bare essential, it has unique styling with its navy CVN class aircraft carrier roots. It has a budget-level spec list which is spearheaded by a pair of PCIe 3.0 M.2 slots and an advertised 10-phase power delivery. While we don’t currently have any information on pricing, it’s likely to slot into the $150-200 pricing segment.

    Looking for any help. I just bought the Z490 Gaming X AX. 9/20/20. I got it up and running but can not figure out how to get any of my video cards to work. Have gotten it to post once but defaulted to the onboard. I have updated my BIOS of F3 I belive. Run threw many settings and still no life to my GPU. I get 5 Brapps then a power down. The MP gets to the GPU illumination boot light and cant get past it. I have tries my GTX 770sc and 980ftw with no luck. Both are EVGA. Please any ideas on how to get my BIOS stable.

    I liked the fact that the motherboard has more than one nvme (gen 4) slots. The capacitors used are of high quality and cooling material used is also of high grade. The RGB could have been better along the edges though it does the work well . There are multiple fan headers so you won't have any problems regarding that. And the water pump header is also a nice touch. Great ram frequency too.At this price point couldn't have asked for anything more. Reply
