AORUS STYLE

RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs

With AORUS Z370 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 Z370 Series 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.

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.

When using RGB/UV LED strips, users can give their systems a fluorescent glow with the use of UV reactive liquid, neon braided cables, and acrylic paint for a wicked-looking gaming PC.

No need to worry when choosing light strips as AORUS motherboards support a wide variety of RGBW/-UV light strips on the market thanks to the RGB Fusion software that allows users to redefine the pin location for the R/G/B Signal.

With a dazzling array of products supported, RGB Fusion is the software that brings it all together, letting your accessories synchronize to the same beat. Customize all your LEDs how you like — have them match, dazzle and impress. Learn more about RGB Fusion

AORUS AUDIO

ALC1220 120dB SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp

ALC1220 120dB SNR HD Audio

The ALC1220 is a high-performance multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec with up to 120dB SNR for crystal clear audio and features such as Smart Headphone Amp, 114dB SNR recording for precise voice chats and hardware decoding of DSD128, ensuring users get the best possible audio quality from their PC.


Smart Headphone AMP

Automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, whether earbuds or high-end headphones to provide optimal audio dynamics—preventing issues such as low volume and distortion.


High-End WIMA & Audio Capacitors

The AORUS Z370 motherboards boast a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and audio grade Fine Gold capacitors. While the Fine Gold capacitors are suited for high-grade audio equipment, using state of the art technology to provide rich sound in the bass and clearer high frequencies, the WIMA FKP2 capacitors are being used widely in premium grade Hi-Fi systems. The addition of this to the exclusive AORUS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.

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.

Fan pin header Temperature Sensors

Different models have different number of fan pin headers and temperature sensors. Smart Fan 5 function may vary by model.

 

Temperature Sensors

 

Hybrid Fan Headers

¦ 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

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 PERFORMANCE

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4000MHz and Beyond*

AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4000MHz 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.

What is XMP?

DDR4 memory modules are available at a stock frequency of 2133MHz, but as frequency tweaking requires a considerable amount of effort and knowledge, memory vendors encode XMP profiles which can automatically modify the timings of the supported memory modules to work with your CPU and to achieve increased performance.

* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module. Please visit www.aorus.com to see the complete validated memory support list. Product features may vary by model.
