Efficient Cooling for High-End Systems

FINS-ARRAY IIFins-Array II uses brand new louvered stacked fins technology which is usually only used on industrial equipment that need compact heat exchangers. It has a special secondary fins structure that enhances heat transfer performance. Heat flow that goes through fins will enter from the leading edge of the louver and is then directed by other louvers or fins. This louver directed flow can greatly improve heat transfer performance. Because of pressure difference and flow separation, a circulation zone will be formed between louvered fins. This circulation will cause flow entrain and eject in the vortice form which improves thermal efficiency.

Harness the Power your PC Deserves

A SUPERIOR DESIGN FOR POWERTo unleash the full potential of new Intel 10th Gen CPUs, the motherboard requires the finest CPU power design. With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, Z490 AORUS MASTER is a true beast among motherboards.

Stable and Efficient Power for your Rig

14 PHASE DIGITAL POWER DESIGNThis innovative motherboard uses a pure digital CPU power design which includes a digital PWM controller with Smart Power Stages, and is capable of providing 90A of power from each phase for a total of 1260A. This 100% digital controller, new Tantalum Polymer Capacitors array, and additional 8+8 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors provide incredible precision and stability in delivering power to the motherboard\'s most power-hungry components, allowing you to get the ultimate overclocking performance from the new 10-core 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.

Intricate Design for Expert Performance

INTELLIGENT POWER ARCHITECTUREIn order to unleash the full performance of the new high core count CPUs, GIGABYTE uses true power phases, a fully load-balanced VRM design with doublers, and a tantalum polymer capacitor array. By using doublers, the power design ensures that the high power draw of the CPU is fully balanced across all MOSFETs to achieve better efficiency and lower temperatures. In contrast, MOSFETs in competitors\' traditional parallel power designs are not as well balanced which leads to lower efficiency and higher temperatures. For sudden changes between idle and high load states from the CPU, GIGABYTE utilizes a tantalum polymer capacitor array directly under the CPU socket as a buffer to improve transient response and stability under high CPU frequencies. By using brand new VRM design and Tantalum Polymer Capacitor Array, Z490 AORUS motherboard transient response and stability is highly improved under overclocking and heavy loading condition.

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

SUPPORT FOR DDR4 XMP UP TO 4800MHZ AND BEYONDAORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4800MHz 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.

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