Overview

Wings of Excellence

The falcon utilizes its powerful wings to soar through the skies and lock down its prey. The AORUS Core takes inspiration from the falcon’s aerodynamic wings, incorporating a multi-layered design which features wing shaped contours and also resembles the falcon’s high velocity ascension and dive through the skies. With sleek and metallic armor, the AORUS Core symbolizes advancement in technology with its futuristic style.

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. 

  • 70A IR Power Stage for each vCore Phase
  • High Current Capacity MOSFET
  • Lower Temperature
  • Server Level Reliability

X299X AORUS MASTER motherboard adopts an all IR digital CPU power design which includes a digital PWM Controller with Power Stage MOSFET and is capable of providing 70A of power from each phase, for a total of incredible 840A. This 100% digital controller and additional 8+8 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from the new 18-core 10th Gen Intel® Core™ X processors. 

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.

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.

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.

GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard

With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue. 

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. 

  • 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%.

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.

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 and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or external thermistor sensors—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. 

New Smart Fan 5 Software

Choose from different modes, Quiet to Full Speed, to match your system usage preferences.

For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds. 

Noise Detection

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. 

Next Generation Multi-Gig Gaming

The AQUANTIA® AQC111C is a high-performance, backward compatible with 5GBASE-T/ 2.5GBASE-T/ 1000BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX Ethernet Controller which is able to provide up to 5 GbE network connectivity, with 5 times faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking and is perfectly designed for media centers, workstations and gamers.
