Ultimate Power Design
To unleash the full potential of the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ CPU, the motherboard requires the best CPU power design. With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, TRX40 AORUS MASTER is a true beast among motherboards.
Direct 16+3 Phases Infineon Digital VRM Solution
TRX40 AORUS MASTER motherboard uses latest new generation Infineon multiphase PWM controller, and a total 16+3 phase for vCore and SOC, all with Infineon TDA21472 Power Stage MOSFET which is capable of providing at least 70A of power from each phase, for a total of amazing 1330A. Power design is no longer a bottleneck for this motherboard.
2 x Copper PCB
GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.
Advanced Thermal Design
TRX40 AORUS MASTER reaches a perfect balance between style and performance by combining the media acclaimed Fins-Array heatsink, Heatpipe and a thermal baseplate, to provide lower MOSFET temperatures for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.
Heatpipe with Extended Heatsink - Extended heatsink with Heatpipe is capable of transferring more heat from MOS fins under same time period.
With the new Noise Detection function, you can monitor noise level of all devices including fans, CPU coolers, graphics card, etc. in real time, and you can determine how fast your fan speed needs to be. Our bundled Noise Detection cable doesn’t include any sound recording function, it simply detects sound pressure while protecting your privacy.
- NanoCarbon Coating - This specialized nanostructure of carbon molecules has extraordinary thermal conductivity
- Base plate made of aluminum instead of traditional iron ensures 3X thermal conductivity
- A thin layer of NanoCarbon is coated on the base plate through electrostatic adhesion to enhance thermal radiation capability
- Transfer heat from the back side PCB to the base plate so the NanoCarbon base plate can dissipate heat passively
- Effectively lowers backside PWM component temperature by 10%
8X Hybrid Fan Header
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.
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 and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or external thermistor sensors - giving you absolute mastery over your PC.
