The Realtek ALC1220-VB audio codec is paired with an ESS SABRE 9218 DAC chip to deliver deep and immersive DTS:X Ultra 7.1-channel surround sound. Other features include fast internet connections via the wired Intel Gigabit and Aquantia 5 Gigabit Ethernet ports, which operate alongside the built-in 802.11ax Wi-Fi that is designed to deliver up to 2.4 Gb/s wirelessly. You can customize your computing experience using the addressable RGB headers to connect light strips, which can be synced with other Gigabyte RGB Fusion 2.0-compatible peripherals such as mice and keyboards using the desktop software or mobile app. Windows 10 64-bit is required to take advantage of all the motherboard's features.

Enhanced Cooling

  • Triple Fins-Array heatsinks with 6mm heatpipes and an aluminum thermal base plate work to deliver lower MOSFET temperatures.
  • The aluminum base plate features a thin thermal conductive NanoCarbon coating to enhance heat dissipation.
  • Thermal guards help to quickly dissipate heat from the M.2 solid-state drives to avoid speed throttling.
  • Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange fan headers to correspond with the thermal sensors located across the motherboard so that the system stays cool while maintaining a high level of performance for games and other demanding applications.
  • Fan Stop lets you to take control of your computer's noise level by allowing specified fans to halt when the system drops to a designated temperature level. These settings may be customized according to your preferences.
  • Hybrid Fan Headers automatically detect the connected liquid- or air-cooling systems, enabling Smart Fan 5 to monitor information such as flow-rate.
  • A Noise Detection function allows you to monitor the level of noise produced by the system's devices, including the CPU cooler, graphics card, and more, allowing you to address potential problems.

Performance Features

  • The X299X AORUS MASTER motherboard features an IR digital PWM controller with a Power Stage MOSFET that provides up to 70A of power from each phase, totaling 840A.
  • This motherboard uses a double copper layer PCB design to efficiently deliver power to critical components at lower temperatures.

Designed for Durability

  • A stainless steel shield reinforces the PCIe connectors, providing extra strength to support heavy graphics cards.
  • The memory slots include stainless steel shielding, which is designed to prevent bending, twisting, and distortion in addition to protecting against possible electrostatic interference.
  • Solid plated ATX 24-pin and 8-pin power connectors deliver a stable power supply to key components.
  • With the Q-Flash Plus feature, you can update the BIOS without having to install a CPU or video card. Simply copy the new BIOS file to a USB flash drive, insert it into the designated port, then press the Q-Flash button.
  • The DualBIOS design features a secondary backup BIOS to help recover from computer viruses, hardware issues, and other issues that could endanger your computer.
