8 Solid Pin CPU Power Connectors.ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION
B560M AORUS uses high performance Fully Covered thermal design with high coverage MOSFET Heatsinks and thick thermal pad, providing ultimate MOSFET cooling performance for enthusiasts, overclockers and gamers.
Fully Covered Thermal Design – High coverage MOSFET Heatsinks to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.
Thick Thermal Pad – Thick 5W/mk thermal pad.
M.2 Thermal Guard – Built-in M.2 heatsink prevent high-speed, PCIe 4.0 SSDs from throttling due to overheating.Fully Covered MOSFET Heatsink
2X larger Surface
Increased surface area up to 2X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.
Real One-piece Build
TMOS is a TRUE single piece heatsink. Its one-piece design and larger surface drastically improve the cooling performance against competitors’ multi-piece design
TMOS features several channels and inlets on the heatsink. This design allows for the air flow to go through which leads to a great improvement of the heat transfer performance.
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.
Smart Fan 6
Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface.
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.
With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, the B560M AORUS is a true beast among motherboards.
Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4800MHz and Beyond*
AORUS 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.
Shielded Memory Routing
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.
Memory Layout – Daisy Chain Design
With the optimized daisy-chain routing, the B560M AROUS motherboard provides a proven speed of up to DDR4-4800 MHz with high-density Memory 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.
Single 32GB Support
The maximum memory capacity on the B560M motherboard is 128GB. After Intel updated the memory reference code, a single slot can support up to 32GB. Therefore with populated 2 DIMM per channel on both channel, total memory capacity is 128GB, which was only available on High End Desktop (HEDT) platforms. For users who always run out of memory capacity, there is more bandwidth now for memory-intensive application such as rendering and video editing.
*Performance may vary in circumstances. Please refer to the QVL list for detail support information.
