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. 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 will support either 5v or 12v digital LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs comes with 9 new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.

* Digital LEDs are available only on select Motherboards, external LED Strips, Digital LED Strips are not included with Motherboard purchase.

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.

Supports RGBW & UV Light Strips

Independently Programmable Onboard Pin Header for RGBW/UV LED Strips

Not bright enough? You can install standard 12V external RGB, RGBW or RGB/UV light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its color from the RGB Fusion software. Using a RGBW light strip with a dedicated white LED, users will experience brighter and more vibrant shades of colors.

RGB Fusion (Advanced mode)

With the all new RGB Fusion software, users have access to different preset LED lighting configurations with choice of colors. You can even set the LEDs to synchronize with your favorite music or have them change colors to indicate the CPU temperature. For true lighting experts there is an Advanced Mode, which can be fully customized by individual area with its own effects and color transitions, along with specific duration and transition times.

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.

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.

Solid Pin Power connector advantages

  • Larger contact area for electricity
  • More metal quantity to sustain higher power and generated heat
  • Ultra durable and longer lifespan

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.

Diagnostic LEDs

Hardware Troubleshooting at a Glance

Onboard LEDs controlled by the system BIOS indicate if a malfunction is occurring, allowing users to quickly diagnose which major component (CPU/DDR/VGA/HDD) is malfunctioning so they may take action promptly.

Great cheap board with all the sockets you really want or need, if youre building your first pc or arent that confident i recommend this board as its the most plug and play friendly board ive come across, any questions i had on the board such as ryzen 3000 support etc was answered immediately by their live chat service, (p.s this supports ryzen 3000 straight out of the box). Also love the boot stage lights really helps keeping an eye on things for the first couple of boots if youre unsure, also would help with troubleshooting but i havent had to since it works perfect.

Very easy to install and fantastic performance. Could not be happier with the motherboard and the first class service and speedy delivery.

This motherboard looks great, I love the attached thermal guard to m.2 memory. Aorus logo have a nice RGB backlight. This motherboard gives you many O.C (CPU/Memory) possibilities. BIOS is very easy to use for a regular user. On board you can find a few RGB outputs. You can check RGB Fusion app and Gigabyte APP center to find out what you can do with this motherboard. I'm glad I bought this motherboard.
