DESIGN CONCEPT

DOMINANT IN DARKNESS

In the dark, starless night, the falcon strikes fear into the heart of its prey. Even with minimal visibility, the falcon pinpoints its prey and patiently anticipates the perfect moment to swoop in for the kill. The falcon with its laser sharp gaze dominates the darkness of night in the same manner that AORUS Core Lighting illuminates the vast AORUS ecosystem.

AORUS PERFORMANCE

12 Phase Digital Power Design

40A IR 3553 for each vCore Phase 
High current capacity MOSFET 
Lower temperature 
Server level reliability

Z390 AORUS MASTER motherboard uses an all IR digital CPU power design which includes both digital PWM Controller and PowlRstage MOSFET, and is capable of providing at least 40A of power from each phase, for a total of 480A. These 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 8-core 9th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.

Advanced Thermal Design

Z390 AORUS MASTER reaches a perfect balance between style and performance by combining the media acclaimed Fin-Arrays heatsink, a heatpipe, and a thermal baseplate, to provide 30% lower MOSFET temperatures for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.Fins-Array Heatsink with Direct Touch Heatpipe and High Thermal Conductivity Pad

  • Z390 AORUS MASTER uses Fins-Array Heatsink which increases the heat dissipation area by 300% compared to traditional heatsinks of the same size. Direct Touch Heatpipe helps transfer heat from MOS to heatsink and fins.
  • By using LAIRD 1.5mm thick, 5W/mK high thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time period.

AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard

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.

Thermal Throttling As Temperature Rises

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4133MHz and Beyond*

AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4133MHz 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.
