Made to Handle the most Demanding of Tasks

thermal design

EXTREME THERMAL DESIGNShowcasing a state-of-the-art design, excellent functionality, an impressive thermal design, next generation network connectivity, a Hi-Fi level audio system, and AORUS aesthetics, the flagship Z490 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE motherboard dominates the competition. This superior motherboard uses exclusive CPU/VRM/PCH watercooling monoblock to ensure stability and low temperatures under full loads and gaming.

Expert Cooling for High-End Rigs

aio monoblock

ALL-IN-ONE MONOBLOCKThe all-in-one monoblock covers the CPU, VRM, SSD and PCH areas, with 60% more skived fins surface area for more efficient heat transfer. This superior motherboard uses high density copper fins for extreme heat dissipation along with a leak detection circuit around the whole monoblock, the leak detection also features emergency shutdown when any leaks occur to protect your PC. Adjust the style with the addressable LED lighting, and enjoy excellent durability with the solid back-plate that prevents motherboard distortion, bending, or damage.

nanocarbon

NANOCARBON BASE PLATEThe baseplate on the Z490 XTREME WATERFORCE motherboard is made of aluminium instead of traditional iron to ensure 3X more thermal conductivity. A thin layer of NanoCarbon is coated on the base plate through electrostatic adhesion to enhance thermal radiation capability. Transfer heat from the back side PCB to the base plate so the NanoCarbon base plate can dissipate heat passively. This effectively lowers backside PWM component temperatures by 10%.

connectors

RIGHT-ANGLED CONNECTORSZ490 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE uses a revolutionary Right-Angled Connector design, 90% of pin headers and connectors on motherboards are right-angled and relocated to one side of the PCB. The never-seen-before design provides easier cable management and better airflow when installing various components.

thermal guard

AORUS M.2 THERMAL GUARD IIWith durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a new thermal solution for large capacity M.2 SSD devices with double side flash. The M.2 Thermal Guard II uses a double-sided heatsink design and prevents throttling and bottlenecks on high speed M.2 SSDs by dissipating heat before it gets too high.

noise detect

NOISE DETECTIONWith the new Noise Detection function, you can monitor the noise level of all devices including fans, CPU coolers, graphics card, etc, in real time. You can also determine how fast your fan speed needs to be. The included noise detection cable doesn't include any sound recording functions, it simply detects sound pressure while protecting your privacy.

headers

8X Hybrid FAN HEADERWith Smart Fan 5 you can ensure that your 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.

Unleash the Most Impressive Power

4K Recording

THE ULTIMATE DESIGN FOR POWERTo unleash the full potential of new Intel 10th Gen CPUs, the motherboard requires the finest CPU power design. With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, Z490 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE is a true beast among motherboards.

The Most Stable and Efficient Power for your System

4K Recording

16 PHASE DIGITAL POWER DESIGNThis innovative motherboard uses a pure digital CPU power design which includes a digital PWM controller with Smart Power Stages, and is capable of providing 90A of power from each phase for a total of 1440A. This 100% digital controller, new Tantalum Polymer Capacitors array, and additional 8+8 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors provide incredible precision and stability in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry components, allowing you to get the ultimate overclocking performance from the new 10-core 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.

True Design for Superior Performance

4K Recording

INTELLIGENT POWER ARCHITECTUREIn order to unleash the full performance of the new high core count CPUs, GIGABYTE uses true power phases, a fully load-balanced VRM design with doublers, and a tantalum polymer capacitor array. By using doublers, the power design ensures that the high power draw of the CPU is fully balanced across all MOSFETs to achieve better efficiency and lower temperatures. In contrast, MOSFETs in competitors' traditional parallel power designs are not as well balanced which leads to lower efficiency and higher temperatures. For sudden changes between idle and high load states from the CPU, GIGABYTE utilizes a tantalum polymer capacitor array directly under the CPU socket as a buffer to improve transient response and stability under high CPU frequencies. By using brand new VRM design and Tantalum Polymer Capacitor Array, Z490 AORUS motherboard transient response and stability is highly improved under overclocking and heavy loading condition.

Handle the Heaviest of Tasks with Ease

2X COPPER PCBGIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.

4K Recording

Unparalleled Performance like No Other

Memory Layout - Daisy Chain DesignWith the optimized daisy-chain routing, the Z490 AORUS motherboard provides a proven speed of up to DDR4-4800+ MHz with high-density DESIGNARE Memory 32GB 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. Z490 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE uses revolutionary "XTREME MEMORY" technology, which includes Shielded Memory Routing, SMT DIMM, and Tantalum Polymer Capacitors Array to minimize all noise and electrical interference and reach the highest memory clock.

xmp

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4800MHz and BeyondAORUS 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.
