The AORUS X299 enthusiast motherboards are faster and more powerful than any motherboard. With an aggressively redesigned armor and thermal heatsinks it's sure to turn heads and catch eyes. Performance is no stranger to AORUS, with exotic cooling and an ability to be tuned to peak performance AORUS motherboards will exceed expectations.
It 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.
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.
Ultra Durable memory armor
AORUS' exclusive one piece stainless steel shielding design prevents against PCB distortion and twist, plate bending, in addition to preventing any possible ESD interference.
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 an amazing meaning.
Long lifespan Durable Black solid caps
AORUS motherboards integrate the high quality solid state capacitors that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. With ultra-low ESR no matter how high the CPU load, this provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability.
