Z390 AORUS MASTER reaches a perfect balance between style and performance by combining the media acclaimed Fins-Array heatsink, a heatpipe, and a thermal baseplate, to provide 30% lower MOSFET temperatures for enthusiasts, overclockers and professional gamers.Fins-Array Heatsink with Direct Touch Heatpipe and High Thermal Conductivity Pad
Base plate + I/O Shield ArmorDurable design and easy installation
- Z390 AORUS MASTER uses Fins-Array Heatsink which increases the heat dissipation area by 300% compared to traditional heatsinks of the same size. Direct Touch Heatpipe helps transfer heat from MOS to heatsink and fins.
- By using LAIRD 1.5mm thick, 5W/mK high thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time period.
Triple PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2
- With an integrated base plate, GIGABYTE Motherboards give users a strong foundation to build their Gaming PCs.
- With an integrated I/O shield, building a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable PC is even easier.
- Integrated Power/Reset/Clear CMOS buttons on the I/O shield enable users easier debugging and operation.
