For 8th Gen Intel® Coffee Lake1 Processors
This GIGABYTE Socket LGA-1151 v2 Motherboard is initially only compatible with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ Series, Pentium Gold G5xxx Series and Celeron G49xx Series Processors1, offering the highest Intel® CPU performance to consumers.
Older Socket LGA-1151 Processors are unfortunately not pin compatible with this new Motherboard, as per Intel®; due to differences in how each pin is used by the Motherboard. If this Motherboard is used with a 7th Gen and earlier processor, both warranties are void.
8+2 Hybrid Digital Power Design: Optimized for 6-Core Intel® Core™ CPUs
AORUS series motherboards use a Intersil Digital PWM design w/ 8+2 phase PWM+ Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs to support the latest 6-core Intel® Core™ CPUs. This offers incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power hungry and energy sensitive components, as well as delivering enhanced system performance and ultimate hardware scalability!
Benefits of Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs:
- Optimized gate charge to minimize switching losses
- Lower temperature, smaller size, better thermal characteristics

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.
Different models have different number of fan pin headers and temperature sensors. Smart Fan 5 function may vary by model.
- 6 Temperature Sensors
- 5 Fan / Water Pump Connectors
- All Fan Pin Headers Upgraded to Hybrid Fan Headers
- Interoperable Fans and Sensors
- Intuitive UI for Fan Control
FAN STOP: Achieve Fan Silence
With Fan Stop map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature—all of it can be customized to your liking.
Hybrid Fan Pin Headers
Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers—giving you absolute mastery over your PC. All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode.
RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs Support
With AORUS Motherboards, RGB Fusion is even better with Digital LEDs.* RGB Fusion offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGBW / Digital LED light strips for their PC.
*Digital LEDs are available only on select Motherboards, external LED Strips, Digital LED Strips are not included with Motherboard purchase.
Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion on AORUS Motherboards are now upgraded with Digital LED support. With external digital LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
