16 Phase Digital Power Design
Z390 AORUS XTREME motherboard uses an all IR digital CPU power design which includes a digital PWM Controller with PowlRstage MOSFET and is capable of providing at least 60A of power from each phase, for a total of 960A. This 100% digital controller and additional 8+8 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 8-core 9th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.
2x Copper PCB
GIGABYTE'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.
Extreme Thermal Design
Z390 AORUS XTREME use some unprecedented and innovative thermal design to ensure stability and low temperature under full loading application and gaming.
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. 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.
