That makes X299X
AORUS MASTER an un-beatable motherboard in the market.
70A IR Power Stage for each vCore Phase
High Current Capacity MOSFET
Server Level Reliability
X299X AORUS MASTER motherboard adopts an all IR digital CPU power design which includes a
PWM Controller with
Power Stage MOSFET and is capable of providing 70A of power from each phase, for a total of
incredible 840A. This 100%
digital controller and additional 8+8 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision
delivering power to
the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get
performance from the new 18-core 10th Gen Intel® Core™ X processors.
True 12 Phase Power Design
GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between
components to handle greater than
normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is
essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that
necessary when overclocking.

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.
Thermal Throttling As Temperature Rises
Reengineered Thermal Solution
As processors draws more power, RDs trying hard to keep VRM stays cool preventing it from throttle with efficient
thermal solution. Along with SMART FAN 5, real time monitor temperatures changes and adjust fan speed accordingly, to
keep certain level of performance without too much noise.
Reengineered Thermal Solution
Re-engineered Passive Cooling
With CPU draws bigger power than ever. Thermal solution are pushed to a limit. On X299X AORUS
MASTER, there are 3 set of
Fins-Array Heatsink with 6mm Heatpipe. In order to place triple protection, we try hard to clear a
path for it.
Furthers, fins-Array Heatsink which increases the heat dissipation area by 300% compared to regular
heatsinks of the
same size. By using LAIRD 1.5mm thick, 5W/mK high thermal conductivity pad, it transfers 2.7x more
heat than regular
thermal pads in the same time period. 6mm Heatpipe helps to transfer heat between heatsinks which to
get thermal balance
more quickly. On the back, we use Nanocarbon coating on baseplate, which leads to 10% cooler

Heatpipe helps to transfer heat between heatsinks that helps to get thermal balance of the
MOSFETs more quickly.
3. High Thermal
By using 1.5mm thicker 5 W/mK thermal conductivity pad, it transfer 2.7x more heat than usual

- Base plate made of aluminum instead of traditional iron ensures 3X thermal conductivity.
- A thin layer of NanoCarbon is coated on the base plate through electrostatic adhesion to
enhance thermal radiation capability.
- Transfer heat from the back side PCB to the base plate so the NanoCarbon base plate can
dissipate heat passively.
- Effectively lowers backside PWM component temperature by 10%.
This specialized nanostructure of carbon molecules has extraordinary thermal conductivity.
