Unleash the full power of your Intel 12th Gen system with the B660 AORUS Master DDR4 LGA 1700 ATX Motherboard from GIGABYTE. Featuring the B660 chipset, supporting 12th generation Intel processors with the LGA 1700 socket, this ATX motherboard is designed to support high-performance computer builds for gaming and content creation. The B660 AORUS Master DDR4 takes full advantage of the large PCIe 4.0 data bandwidth to maximize speeds with compatible devices, including four memory slots that support up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory, reaching 5333 MHz when overclocked with XMP. It also includes slots for up to four SATA III drives and three M.2 PCIe 4.0 and 3.0 SSDs, which can be put into RAID 0, 1, 5, or 10 configuration and enhanced with Intel Optane technology. Additionally, its three expansion slots can accommodate two PCIe 4.0 x16 devices, including support for AMD cross-fire dual GPU setups. Compatible expansion cards can additionally be installed into the PCIe 3.0 x16 slot.
Peripherals such as mice and keyboards can be connected to the USB 2.0 ports while reserving the USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C and USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A and Type-C ports for 20 Gb/s and 10 Gb/s compatible devices. The Realtek ALC1220-VB 7.1-channel audio codec provides rich sound and provides a line out audio jack that supports DSD audio. The RGB lighting headers allow you to customize RGB Fusion compatible light strips and devices with multiple colored effects. A 2.5G Ethernet port and integrated Wi-Fi 6 support provide high-speed data transfers with compatible networks and devices for low-latency online gaming experiences and smooth 4K video streaming. Windows 10 64-bit is the supported operating system to take full advantage of this motherboard's features.

DDR4 XMP Memory
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer which protects from external interference and provides protection to your memory modules.
The maximum memory capacity on the B660 AORUS MASTER is 128GB. After Intel updated the memory reference code, a single slot can support up to 32GB. Populated with 2 DIMMs per channel on both channels, the total memory capacity is 128GB, which was only previously available on High End Desktop (HEDT) platforms. For users who always run out of memory capacity, there is more bandwidth now for memory-intensive application such as rendering and video editing.

Smart Fan 6
Featuring the Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI, fan curve can be quickly switched with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenarios. Slope is a traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve, while with the newly added Stair non-linear mode, the fans maintain the same speed between specified temperature intervals. For advanced users, there is manual fan speed input for more precise control of the fans.
With EZ Tuning, users can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed intervals, and Smart Fan 6 will quickly generate a fan curve. Fan curve profiles can be saved in the BIOS ROM, and the profile will be kept after updating the BIOS.
Featuring an Intelligent Fan Control Design, users can achieve fan silence. Map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold, and control which fan stops and at what temperature based on readings from specific sensors.
