VOID SPLIT

Shards of the Void; Borders Disappear Fusing different materials and surface textures with negative space to form a juxtaposition and showcase a stylistic effect where the boundaries between components are not clearly defined. It creates a multi-dimensional design that seemingly cuts through space and time.



Direct 8+2 Phases Digital VRM Solution with Low RDS(on) MOSFET

B460 AORUS PRO AC motherboard use a 8+2 phase digital PWM + Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs design to support the latest 10-core Intel® Core™ CPUs by offering incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components as well as delivering enhanced system performance and ultimate hardware scalability.


Benefits of Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs

Optimized gate charge to minimize switching losses.
Lower temperature, smaller size, better thermal characteristics.


Direct Power Phase Design


AORUS PERFORMANCE

With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, the B460 AORUS is a true beast among motherboards.


Single 32GB Support

The maximum memory capacity on the B460 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.

 

Dual NVMe PCIe Gen3 M.2 Slots (x4,x2)

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


Pre-installed I/O Shield Armor

Durable design and easy installation

With an integrated base plate, GIGABYTE Motherboards give users a strong foundation to build their Gaming PCs.
With an integrated I/O shield, building a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier.


Enlarged MOSFET Heatsinks

Enlarged Heatsink increases surface area to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.


5 W/mK LAIRD Thermal Conductivity Pad

By using 1.5mm thicker 5 W/mK thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time.


2X M.2 Thermal Guards

Built-in M.2 heatsinks prevent high-speed, large capacity PCIe 3.0 SSDs from throttling due to overheating.


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 5

With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.


Hybrid Fan Pin Headers

Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers-giving you absolute mastery over your PC.
All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode.


New Smart Fan 5 Software

Choose from different modes, Quiet to Full Speed, to match your system usage preferences.
For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds.


2X Faster than ever

Adoption of 2.5G LAN provide up to 2.5 GbE network connectivity, with at least two times faster transfer speeds compared to general 1GbE networking. It's perfectly suit for gamers and streamer with ultimate and smooth online experience. It also backward compatible with Multi-Gig(10/100/1000/2500Mbps) RJ-45 ethernet.


Integrated Intel® 802.11ac Wave2 CNVi WIFI + Bluetooth 5

Intel Next-Gen Wireless solution supports 802.11ac Wave 2 function, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections and speeds up to 1.73Gbps. Double the speed compared to the previous generation. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4x range over BT4.2 and with faster transmission.


Intel® USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ Controller

Intel's native USB 3.2 Gen2 host controller provides USB 3.2 Gen2 ports with speeds up to 10Gbps .With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation as well as backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and USB 3.2 Gen1 , the much improved USB 3.2 Gen2 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C™ and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.


ALC 1220 120dB SNR HD Audio

The ALC1220 is a high-performance multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec with up to 120dB SNR for crystal clear audio and features such as Smart Headphone Amp, 114dB SNR recording for precise voice chats and hardware decoding of DSD128, ensuring users get the best possible audio quality from their PC.


Smart Headphone Amp

Automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, whether earbuds or high-end headphones to provide optimal audio dynamics-preventing issues such as low volume and distortion.


High-End WIMA & Audio Capacitors

The AORUS motherboards boast a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and high-end Nichicon audio capacitors. While the high-end audio capacitors are suited for high-grade audio equipment, using state of the art technology to provide rich sound in the bass and clearer high frequencies, the WIMA FKP2 capacitors are being used widely in premium grade Hi-Fi systems. The addition of this to the exclusive AOURS AMP-UP Audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for the most demanding audiophiles.


Multi-Zone Light Show Design

Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion 2.0 application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.

Good for generating headaches

No end of problems with this board. It is incredibly picky with what ram it accepts. First set I got it wouldn't post. Second set off the QVL list got it posting but when I doubled the amount (still on the QVL list mind you) it stops booting again. Lan port required a bios update to function. Not good at all.

Shocking!

Its shocking professionals from PBtech advised me this motherboard for my custom-built computer where it does not even utilize the full capacity of my RAMs. After spending over $4000, its heart breaking that I could not expect general basic knowledge from professionals where I had researched to find out this mistake PBtech made!
