ULTIMATE POWER DESIGN
Gigabyte Z490 AORUS PRO AX 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 Intel 10-core CPU.
The Gigabyte Z490 AORUS PRO AX Motherboard Fins-Array II heatsink, extra-large heatpipe, and thick thermal pad work to deliver lower MOSFET temperatures. Double-sided 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.
