Shards of the Void; Borders Disappear Fusing different materials and surface textures with negative space to form a juxtaposition and showcase a stylistic effect where the boundaries between components are not clearly defined. It creates a multi-dimensional design that seemingly cuts through space and time. H470 AORUS PRO AX motherboard uses an 11+1 phases digital PWM + Low RDS(on) MOSFETs design to support the latest 10-core Intel Core CPUs by offering incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components as well as delivering enhanced system performance and ultimate hardware scalability. With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, the H470 AORUS is a true beast among motherboards. The maximum memory capacity on the H470 motherboard is 128GB. After Intel updated the memory reference code, a single slot can support up to 32GB. Therefore with populated 2 DIMM per channel on both channels, total memory capacity is 128GB, which was only available on High-End Desktop (HEDT) platforms. For users who always run out of memory capacity, there is more bandwidth now for memory-intensive applications such as rendering and video editing. AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system's potential. With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high-speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue. 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, but 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have also been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly. Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers—giving you absolute mastery over your PC. All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be a fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode. Choose from different modes, Quiet to Full Speed, to match your system usage preferences. For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds. A high-end product needs to be future-proof so your system stays up-to-date with the latest technology. H470 AORUS PRO AX provides all next-generation network, storage, and WIFI connectivity to keep you up to speed. Intel Wireless solution supports 802.11ax, enables gigabit wireless performance, provides smooth video streaming, better gaming experience, few dropped connections, and speeds up to 2.4Gbps. Moreover, Bluetooth 5 provides 4X range over BT 4.2 and with faster transmission. Intel's native USB 3.2 host controller provides USB 3.2 ports with speeds up to 10Gbps. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation as well as backward compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much-improved USB 3.2 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices. ALC1220 120dB(A) SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, preventing issues such as low volume and distortion. Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion 2.0 application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard. GIGABYTE is reputable for its product durability and high-quality manufacturing process. Needless to say, we use the best components we can find for the H470 AORUS motherboard and reinforce every slot to make each of them solid and durable.
