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.
Please see the complete validated memory support list. Product features may vary by model.
AORUS RAID SSD 2TB*
Shows information on adaptors and SSDs are successfully detected.
Check adaptor and SSD working temperature, change fan profile as needed.
* Functions may vary by different platform.
* AORUS Storage Manager doesn't support un-RAID with one click, it has to be manually set up at BIOS.
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 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.
■ 7 Temperature Sensors
■ 2 External Temperature Sensors
■ All Hybrid Fan Headers
■ Interoperable Fans and Sensors
■ Supports High Current Fans up to 24W(2A x 12V) with Over-Current Protection
■ Intuitive UI for Fan Control
Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5
on flow-rate and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin
external thermistor sensors—giving
you absolute mastery over your PC.
• All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode.
For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds.
