Expert Cooling for High-End Rigs

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. With an extra large 8mm heat pipe and made from a new manufacturing process to narrow the gap between the heat pipe and heatsink, new Direct-Touch Heatpipe II greatly helps transfer heat on MOSFETs.

Unleash the Most Impressive Power

THE ULTIMATE 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 XTREME is a true beast among motherboards.

The Most Stable and Efficient Power for your System

16 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 1440A. 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.

True Design for Superior 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 the Heaviest of 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.

Unparalleled Performance like No Other

Memory Layout - Daisy Chain DesignWith the optimized daisy-chain routing, the Z490 AORUS motherboard provides a proven speed of up to DDR4-4800+ MHz with high-density DESIGNARE Memory 32GB module*. Optimized 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 a denser and faster system memory experience. Z490 AORUS XTREME uses revolutionary \"XTREME MEMORY\" technology, which includes Shielded Memory Routing, SMT DIMM, and Tantalum Polymer Capacitors Array to minimize all noise and electrical interference and reach the highest memory clock.
