Power delivery has recently been somewhat of a weakness with Gigabyte motherboards, not to the point they are problematic but just when compared to the setup of their rivals. With the X570 Aorus range Gigabyte have really gone to town when it comes to engineering this problem away, with a 14 phase Infineon setup that doesn't require doublers to achieve those phases and is capable of delivering incredible Amps to your system should you so require it.

Having big attention grabbing numbers on the power phases isn't much use if that power cannot be delivered where it is needed in a reliable manner. Not only does the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master utilise the double thickness copper PCB but they have redesigned the power connectors too so that they are now a solid design for better thermal and power efficiency.

Reinforced PCI slots are now a common feature on a lot of high end motherboards but it's always worth reminding ourselves of why are included. As graphics cards become more powerful their cooling needs increase, this begets bigger heatsinks and these are naturally heavier than a smaller solution. You want longevity to be a key element of any system and the stronger PCI Express slots help reliability and longevity of your purchase. After all, you want to be using it, not fixing it.

Given the favourite colour of our own team member VB, surely it isn't a coincidence that the Gigabyte audio system ALC-1220-VB has the VB in orange? What? You're telling us that orange is just the colour Gigabyte use and it's just serendipity. Darn. With the rapid rise in streaming and the availability of multiple PC-based communication solutions it makes perfect sense that Gigabyte and Realtek have focussed so strongly upon ensuring that your microphone is as clear as possible.

RGB lighting is such a firm fixture in our systems that it is no longer a cause for celebration, but instead an expected element. In one fell swoop it eliminated the problems that early custom systems had that your only choice for lighting was red or blue, with occasional green options. Now you can set all of your hardware up with anything from the simplicity of a single colour through to game specific, action reactive lighting. The updated RGB Fusion 2.0 continues the excellent work Gigabyte have put into their RGB lighting system, improving it in almost every department.

Gigabyte were making awful boards for a long while especially on AM3+ where users boards were popping, It's great to see them crawl back and I awarded them for there efforts by picking up this bad boy along with the 12 core Quote

I bought this one too, despite being an Asus fanboy for decades now. So far, I don't regret my decision yet. The RGBs are a bit dim on this one though, I can barely see the LEDs glowing under the IO shield. But if that's my only complaint, I can deal with that!Quote

TTL was right about these boards! What an epic fail from Asus posting BS temps.

(I've posted this over in the news section also as it's relevant to both)

So, I reflashed my Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master to the newly released F7a Update AGESA 1.0.0.3 ABBA this morning; the following data was taken from a period of approximately seven and a half hours usage (both work and play) using HWiNFO64 v6.10-3880.

My 3900X now runs accordingly -

4,625MHz - Top core hits 4,625MHz
4,575MHz - Top 2 cores average 4,600MHz
4,550MHz
4,525MHz
4,500MHz
4,475MHz - Top 6 cores average 4,542MHz
4,400MHz
4,400MHz
4,375MHz
4,350MHz
4,350MHz
4,325MHz - Package average (all 12 cores) 4,454MHz

Yeah, I’d say I was happy with that.Quote
