Gigabyte Z390 AORUS ELITE - Intel 9th Gen ATX Gaming Motherboard
DOMINATE THE FUTURE WITH AORUSThe ultimate gaming Z390 motherboard, GIGABYTES AORUS ELITE is packed full of interesting and useful technology, ranging from audio, through performance and even customization. The AORUS ELITE motherboard is reinforced with ultra-durable components on the memory and PCIe slot armour, and components such as top-end capacitors. The Z390 board’s customisation and its intuitive UI through the RGB Fusion app allows you to make your AORUS board your own.
Please note: Z390 Motherboards are compatible with Intel 8th Gen 'Coffee Lake' and 9th Gen CPUs. Although these Intel Z390 Motherboards share the same socket as Intel's 200 & 100 Series Motherboards, they are electrically incompatible & will not work with 7th & 6th Gen Intel CPUs.
Incredible AORUS Performance
Incredible precision when delivering powerZ390 AORUS ELITE motherboard uses an 12+1 phases digital CPU power design which includes both digital PWM Controller and DrMOS. These 100% digital controller and additional 8+4 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from the new 9th Generation Intel Core processors.
Advanced Thermal Design
faster and undistorted current deliveryZ390 AORUS ELITE uses a high performance thermal design with screwed mounted heatsinks and thick thermal pad, providing ultimate MOSFET cooling performance for enthusiasts, overclockers and gamers.
Dual M.2 for Ultimate Storage
AORUS M.2 Thermal Guard AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system's potential. Z390 AORUS motherboards offer the industry's best compatibility in terms of NVMe storage for users who demand high capacity and seek the best performance. 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.
Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4133MHz!
Broad DDR4 Compatibility AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4133MHz 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. DDR4 memory modules are available at a stock frequency of 2133MHz, but as frequency tweaking requires a considerable amount of effort and knowledge, memory vendors encode XMP profiles which can automatically modify the timings of the supported memory modules to work with your CPU and to achieve increased performance.
Immersive AORUS Audio
All New Realtek High-End HD Audio Codec ALC1220 120dB(A) SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, preventing issues such as low volume and distortion. With the new VB series audio controller, stream your voice to the world vibrantly with both front/rear microphone SNR up to 110/114dB. The AORUS motherboards boast a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA FKP2 capacitors and high-end 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. USB DAC-UP 2 continues to provide clean, isolated and low-noise power while adding the ability to compensate for voltage drop.
Intel GbE Lan with cFosSpeed
INTERNET ACCELERATOR SOFTWAREIntel GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments. Gigabyte motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.
Intel® Optane™ Memory
Advanced performance with the Optane Cache Memory The Z390 AORUS Platform supports Intel's latest Optane technology. Optane fuels storage performance by acting as a cache drive giving users a significant boost compared to traditional mechanical drives.
Connecting the Future with USB Type-C™
The World's Next Universal Connector Equipped with next generation connectivity AORUS Gaming Motherboards already support the chassis of the future. The onboard USB Type-C™ header for USB 3.1 Gen2 makes access convenient when connecting a USB 3.1 Gen2 drive or charging your new mobile device. Intel's native USB 3.1 host controller provides USB 3.1 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 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 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.
Aorus RGB Fusion LED Lighting
Multi-Zone Light Show Design RGB Fusion offers users the option to control onboard RGB and external RGB / Addressable LED light strips for their PC. 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 application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard. AORUS Motherboards will support either 5v or 12v Addressable LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion with Addressable LEDs comes with new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.
RGB Fusion SoftwareSet LEDs to synchronize with your favorite music or have them change colors to indicate the CPU temperature.
RGB Fusion APPThe GIGABYTE RGB Fusion mobile app users can watch as they control the lighting within their gaming PC
AORUS Smart Fan 5
Choose from different modes 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. For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds. Map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold with Fan Stop.
Ultra Durable Features
Durable Aorus PCI-e Slots Never worry about your heavy graphics card damaging your motherboard again. AORUS’ proprietary Ultra Durable PCIe Metal Shielding reinforces the PCIe connector to prevent slot damage due to heavy graphics card. The DIMM and PCIe metal shield also provides extra strength for when you forget to release the lock while replacing your component, adding a foolproof option which can save your PC’s life.
Integrated I/O Shield Armor With an integrated I/O shield, building a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier and convenient. Users can expect excellent durability with the durable design of the pre-installed I/O shield.
GIGABYTE Patented Double Locking Bracket The PCI-E slots utilise Gigabyte’s patented double locking bracket with a soldered back section which creates a strong bond.
More metal quantity to sustain higher power and generated heat Z390 AORUS motherboards feature solid plated ATX 24pin & ATX 12V 8pin + 4pin power connectors to offer a stable power supply during CPU overloading. Having a Solid Pin means there is a larger contact are for electricity whilst stil being ultra durable for a longer lifespan.
DIAGNOSTIC LEDSOn-board LEDs controlled by the system BIOS specify if a malfunction is occurring, allowing users to promptly take action by quickly diagnosing which major component (CPU/DDR/VGA/HDD) is faulty.
DUALBIOS DESIGNGIGABYTE DualBIOS™ means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', protecting users from BIOS failure due to virus, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.
G CONNECTOR DESIGNWith the G Connector, you can connect all the FP cables at once, streamlining the process of building your next PC and saving you some frustrations, as the tiny cables in the front panel connector can be hard to manipulate as space is restricted.
