12 Phase IR Digital Power Design

To unleash the full power of the new Intel 18 core CPU, the motherboard demands un-precedented strong power solution. GIGABYTE R&Ds selects the best components and never stop pursuing the highest overclock performance. That makes X299X AORUS MASTER an un-beatable motherboard in the market.

Broad DDR4 Compatibility with Support List of 1000+ DDR4 Validated!

AORUS partners very closely with memory vendors from around the world to ensure that modules offered by popular memory brands are compatible with AORUS Motherboards. AORUS has verified over 1000+ different modules to ensure performance in a AORUS built system.

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4333MHz and Beyond*

AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4333MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their AORUS motherboard.

4 Way Dual Wide PCIe Lanes Design

  • 3- and 4-Way Graphics with up to 40 PCIe Lanes Bandwidth.
  • X299X AORUS MASTER features unique PCI Express design that utilizes all 48 lanes from the CPU for full bandwidth.
  • The placement allow users to install 4 dual wide PCIe cards in the same time.

Triple PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2

AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their systems' potential.

Re-engineered Thermal Solution

As processors draws more power, RDs trying hard to keep VRM stays cool preventing it from throttle with efficient thermal solution. Along with SMART FAN 5, real time monitor temperatures changes and adjust fan speed accordingly, to keep certain level of performance without too much noise.

Re-engineered Passive Cooling

With CPU draws bigger power than ever. Thermal solution are pushed to a limit. On X299X AORUS MASTER, there are 3 set of Fins-Array Heatsink with 6mm Heatpipe. In order to place triple protection, we try hard to clear a path for it. Furthers, fins-Array Heatsink which increases the heat dissipation area by 300% compared to regular heatsinks of the same size. By using LAIRD 1.5mm thick, 5W/mK high thermal conductivity pad, it transfers 2.7x more heat than regular thermal pads in the same time period. 6mm Heatpipe helps to transfer heat between heatsinks which to get thermal balance more quickly. On the back, we use Nanocarbon coating on baseplate, which leads to 10% cooler MOSFETs.

Smart Fan 5

With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.
