Power Architecture

 

Power Design Efficiency

 

ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION

Z590 AORUS ELITE uses high performance Full Covered thermal design with high coverage MOSFET Heatsinks and thick thermal pad, providing ultimate MOSFET cooling performance for enthusiasts, overclockers and gamers.

Thermal Design

Fully Covered Thermal Design
Fully Covered Thermal DesignHigh coverage MOSFET and integrated molding Heatsinks to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.

LAIRD 5 W/mK Thermal Pad
By using 1.5mm thicker 5 W/mK thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time.

2X M.2 Thermal Guards
Built-in M.2 heatsinks prevent high-speed, large capacity PCIe 4.0/3.0 SSDs from throttling due to overheating.

 

Fully Covered MOSFET Heatsink

2X Large Surface
Increased surface area up to 2X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.

Real One-piece Build
TMOS is a TRUE single piece heatsink. Its one-piece design and larger surface drastically improve the cooling performance against competitors' multi-piece design.

Multi-Cut Design
TMOS features several channels and inlets on the heatsink. This design allows for the air flow to go through which leads to a great improvement of the heat transfer performance.

 

GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard

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.

 

Smart Fan 6

Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface.

- 6 PWM/DC Fan Headers
- 6 Internal Temperature Sensors

High Current Support - Each fan headers support PWM and DC fan and Water cooling Pump , and up to 24W (12V x 2A) with Over-Current Protection
Precision Control - Up to 7 temperature/fan speed control points for precise fan curve
Dual Curve Mode - Slope/Stair dual mode for different user scenario
Fan Stop - Fan can stop completely below users' specified temperature point

 

Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI

1 - Improve fan curve UI - We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control.
2 - Slope/Stair dual graph mode - Fan curve can be quickly switch with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenario. Slope is traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, fan keeps at same speed between specified temperature interval.
3 - Manual Input - For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control.
4 - EZ Tuning - Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve.
5 - Fan curve profile - Fan curve profile can be saved in BIOS ROM, profile will be kept after updating BIOS.

 

Fan Stop

Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop, map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature-all of it can be customized to your liking.

 

UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE

With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, the Z590 AORUS is a true beast among motherboards.

Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5000MHz and Beyond*

AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5000MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is to ensure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their AORUS motherboard.

* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module.

 

Shielded Memory Routing

All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.

 

Memory Layout - Daisy Chain Design

With the optimized daisy-chain routing, the Z590 AORUS motherboard provides a proven speed of up to DDR4-5000+ MHz with high-density Memory module*. Optimized daisy-chained routing eliminates the stub effect, pushes the one DIMM per channel in dual channel interleaving mode to hit higher memory frequencies, providing professional gamers a denser and faster system memory experience.

*Performance may vary in circumstances. Please refer to the QVL list for detail support information.

 

Single 32GB Support

The maximum memory capacity on the Z590 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 channel, 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 application such as rendering and video editing.

 

PCIe 4.0 Hardware Design

- PCIe 4.0 M.2 Slot - M.2 PCIe 4.0 x4 slot with lower impedance.
- 1 x PCIe 4.0 Slot - Reinforced PCIe 4.0 x 16.
- PCIe 4.0 Ready PCB - PCIe 4.0 Ready Mid-Loss PCB.
