The Industry's Leading Static-Electricity & Surge Protection

 

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.

 

Broad DDR4 Compatibility with Support List of 1000+ DDR4 Validated!

Great

13 April 2018
A great mobo, with only a couple of minor annoyances: - Support for Sound BlasterX 720° -> this is a horrible and buggy *software* package that you definitely do not want installed if you're a gamer or care about your audio (music or film/tv). The sound with the Realtek drivers *only* is pretty good, much better than most, but not quite as good as the Z270 Gaming 8. - If you're booting from an NVMe drive, check and double-check it's actually registering as NVMe in the BIOS, and tinker with the settings as necessary, before you install all your stuff on that drive. You probably need to turn CSM off completely, for instance. It's a bit diffe...

Fantastic Motherboard

15 March 2018
I originally was going to purchase a lesser version of this motherboard. I am so glad I paid the extra price! It was everything you need and 3 M.2 slots! Also, (which wasn't really a consideration for me) the LED lights look great. The BIOS is easy to use. All in all another great product from Gigabyte.

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.

 

Broad DDR4 Compatibility with Support List of 1000+ DDR4 Validated!

AORUS partners very closely with memory vendors from around the world to ensure that modules offered by popular memory brands are compatible with AORUS Motherboards. AORUS has verified over 1000+ different modules to ensure performance in a AORUS built system.

 

Triple PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2

AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system's potential.

 

GIGABYTE Patented Double Locking Bracket

 

USB with Precision Digital Fuse

Utilizing a digital fuse, motherboards are able to avert against over-current damage by reacting faster, with greater precision, and avoid unexpected voltage from external devices.

 

Start Sulfurization Protection

Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.

 

Refreshed BIOS

The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.

 

4K Ultra HD Support

4K resolution is the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery, utilizing approximately 4,000 pixels on the horizontal axis, more than four times today's standard HD pixel density. GIGABYTE motherboards provide native 4K support with integrated Intel® HD Graphics via HDMI.
