AORUS CONNECTIVITY: Smashing the GbE Barrier!

Integrated Intel® 802.11ac Wave2 CNVi WIFI
Intel Next-Gen Wireless solution supports 802.11ac Wave 2 function, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 1.73Gbps. Double the speed compared to the previous generation.

Bluetooth® v5.0
Bluetooth® v5.0 has twice the data bandwidth and 4x the range of the previous v4.2 to deliver higher quality multichannel HD Audio to your devices up to 4x farther away; even inside buildings with less interference than ever!

Dual NVMe M.2 with One Thermal Guard For Extreme Performance
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 drives. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from M.2 devices as it helps to reduce and dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.

Dual-Mode M.2 Slot Design: Support both PCIe NVMe + SATA SSDs GIGABYTE Motherboards are built with dual M.2 slots. With a PCIe NVMe + SATA dual-mode design, users can build a RAID storage system with two NVMe M.2 SSDs or a SATA Mode M.2 SSD + a general SATA SSD. This configuration is designed for flexibility and adaptation to fit most users' and gamers' requests.

PERFORMANCE FUELED BY OPTANE™
The AORUS H370/B360 Platforms support Intel's latest Optane™ Memory technology. Optane™ accelerates storage performance by acting as a large cache drive, giving users a significant performance boost closer to SSD performance when used with traditional HDDs.

Intel ® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Networking
Intel ® GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.

The Industry's Leading LAN Static-Electricity & Surge Protection
GIGABYTE motherboards use ICs with up to 3 times the ESD resistance levels compared to traditional ICs. This helps to better protect the motherboard and its components against potential damage caused by static electricity. GIGABYTE motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.

AORUS STYLE

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.

AORUS Gaming Motherboards support 5Vdc / 12Vdc digital LED lighting strips up to 300 LED lights in total. RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs comes with 9 new patterns and various speed settings with more visual options to come.

Multi-Zone Light Show Design

Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.

AORUS PERFORMANCE

Immersive VR Gaming Experiences
VR requires more performance than Full HD graphics for a steady 90FPS or greater and only Gaming PCs can provide the best VR experiences.

To create a seamless VR experience AORUS Motherboards offer the best features to make your virtual reality feel like your actual reality. With technologies such as NVMe support via M.2 or U.2 and a one piece metal shielding to brace for heavier discrete graphics cards it's obvious that AORUS has the tools you need to start your journey in VR. To set the mood AORUS Motherboards include RGB Fusion to put you in the center of action.

AORUS COOLING

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.

AORUS AUDIO

High-End Audio Capacitors
GIGABYTE motherboards use high-end audio capacitors. These high quality capacitors help deliver high resolution and high fidelity audio to provide the most realistic sound effects for gamers.

Audio Noise Guard
GIGABYTE motherboards feature an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. LED trace path lighting Illuminates to show the separation of the PCB layers.

AORUS ULTRA DURABLE

GIGABYTE Patented Double Locking Bracket

Indutry Leading Ultra Durable PCIe Armor
This innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from AORUS reinforces the PCIe connectors to provide the extra strength required to Support heavy graphics cards.

START SULFURIZATION PROTECTION
Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.

AORUS Excelllence

CEC 2019 Ready: Save Power As Easily As One Click
CEC Requirement: PC power consumption must be under a certain level when it's in off mode, idle mode, stand-by mode. With high power efficiency hardware components and fine tuned BIOS, GIGABYTE motherboards can achieve lower power consumption under idle mode and fully comply with new CEC 2019 (California Energy Commission) power consumption requirement.

GIGABYTE BIOS & Applications
The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.

TriDef ® SmartCam | Custom Stream Modding
