Advanced Cooling for High-End Systems

KEEP YOUR COMPONENTS COOLIn order to guarantee un-throttled performance Aorus have opted for an advanced thermal solution, including enlarged heatsinks, upgraded thermal conductivity pads and thermal guards meaning the B550 ELITE is capable of keeping the MOSFETs and M.2 SSDs cool and comfortable even under maximum load. Whether you\'re a gamer, builder or just an enthusiast you can expect lower temperatures and higher performance from the B550 ELITE.

1. ENLARGED SURFACE HEATSINKSEnlarged surface heatsinks which increasing the surface area to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.

2. M2 THERMAL GUARDBuilt-in M.2 thermal guard heatsink helps the high-speed, large capacity of PCIe 4.0/3.0 SSDs to prevent overheat throttling and performance bottlenecks.

3.5 W/MK THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY PADBy using 5 W/mK high thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat as compared to traditional thermal pads in same time.

Intricate Design for Expert Performance

14 PHASE DIGITAL POWER DESIGNIn order to fully support 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen CPUs, the AORUS B550 ELITE comes equipped with the most complete power solution yet, with true direct, digital and multiple power phases, birthed from countless experiments, testing and tinkering the B550 AOROUS ELITE is built using a pure digital CPU power design which includes a digital controller and a total of 12 phases and with additional 8+4 solid-pin connectors offering incredibly precise power delivery to even the most power hungry components. The B550 AORUS ELITE will enable you to get the most out of your 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU.








Handle Demanding Tasks with Ease

2X COPPER PCBGIGABYTE\'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.

Excel your Memory for Strong Performance

OPTIMISED DAISY CHAIN DESIGNThe AORUS B550 ELITE motherboard provides a proven speed of DDR4-4000MHz and beyond with high density memory modules*. Optimised daisy-chained routing eliminates the stub effect, pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher memory frequencies, providing professional gamers or enthusiasts a denser and faster system memory experience.

* Performance may vary in circumstances. Please refer to the QVL list for detail support information.
