Advanced Cooling for High-End Systems

Keep Your Components Cool In order to guarantee un-throttled performance Aorus have opted for an advanced thermal solution, including Fins-array heatsink, direct touch heatpipes, upgraded thermal pads and thermal guards meaning the B550 PRO AC is capable of keeping the MOSFETs and M.2 SSDs cool and comfortable even under maximum load. Whether you're a gamer, builder or just an enthusiast you can expect lower temperatures and higher performance from the B550 PRO AC.

Features

1. Direct Touch HeatpipeHeatpipe directly touches the heating source VRM components that guarantee good contact between VRM and heatsink.

2. Fins-Array HeatsinkThe B550 PRO AC uses a stacked-fins design which increasing the heat dissipation area by 300% when compared to traditional heatsinks of the same size and also providing at least 30% lower temperature on MOSFETs.

3. LAIRD 5 W/mK Thermal PadBy using LAIRD 5 W/mK high thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 4x more heat as compared to traditional thermal pads in same time.

4. 2X M.2 Thermal GuardBuilt-in M.2 thermal guard heatsink helps the high-speed, large capacity of PCIe 4.0/3.0 SSDs to prevent overheat throttling and performance bottlenecks.

thermal guard

AORUS 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.

headers

SmartWith 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.
