Make It Your Own
AORUS and EK Waterblocks brings to you the best solution in cooling your PC. With liquid cooling, often known as water cooling, users can reap benefits beyond what a large stock air cooler can provide. You can strive for performance, stealth, or merely aesthetics all with liquid cooling.
A Breath of Fresh Air.
Air cooling has never been so easy. You may find that even without an active cooling solution, this state-of-the-art heatsink performs better than anything you’ve encountered. That’s because its integral design was to improve upon traditional heatsinks.
Keep your PC Hydrated.
Unleash the performance of your PC. By actively cooling your gaming rig, gamers can push the limits of the CPU even further with more stable overclocks. Even when you don’t need the performance your PC will thank you for it.
EK Designed G-Frost Hybrid Water Block
AORUS and EK Water Blocks have joined forces to create an extreme hybrid water block, with G1/4" threaded fittings, to help enhance cooling of the CPU VRMs for increased stability and performance.
Aluminium Casing: With its light casing and large surface density this aluminium casing is the best solution to radiate heat into the air.
Copper Tubing: Milled from a copper block, this tubing allows for a high transfer of heat, away from the heated liquid passing through the block.
Threaded Fittings: To help make assembly of your performance system easier, AORUS has included G1/4" threaded fittings so customization and installation are a breeze.
O-Ring: Water and electricity just don’t mix and to ensure that stays that way, EKWB and AORUS have developed this one of a kind O-Ring for the Gaming 9 to keep water where it should be.

The life of the party
Most gamers don't stop, so your PC shouldn't either. Components that are consistently placed under thermal stress will often fail or die completely. With liquid cooling you can expect a longer lifespan from your PC.
Set the color that matches your style
These motherboards boast an advanced LED system. With more customizability than ever and a convenient and intuitive UI, you'll have a blast making your own. LED enthusiasts now have even more options with the ability to customize multiple zones independently. For a more functional use, the bright and vibrant LEDs can be configured to display the PC's temperature or load.
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.
High-end Nichicon Fine Gold and WIMA audio caps
The Z270X-Gaming 8 boasts a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA capacitors and Nichicon audio grade Fine Gold capacitors. While the Nichicon Fine Gold 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 audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for demanding audiophiles.
Turbo B-Clock enables overclockers to have the ability to change their BCLK frequency to a desired value of their choice.
Onboard LEDs indicate if a malfunction is occurring, allowing users to quickly diagnose which major component is malfunctioning so they may take action promptly.
Ultra Durable memory armor
Exclusive one piece stainless steel shielding design prevents against PCB distortion and twist, plate bending, in addition to preventing any possible ESD interference.
