Gigabyte Intros Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard with 360mm AIO liquid cooling for Intel’s 10th generation CPUs
GIGABYTE, today announced the new Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE The motherboard joins the Z490 series water cooling with the latest technology, which powers the world’s only Liquid Cooler AIO 360 design to meet overclocking temperature control on 10-core K-series Intel Core processors.
Gigabyte Intros The Z490 AORUS Master Waterforce motherboard with a pre-connected AIO 360mm liquid cooling solution to keep your 10th generation CPU cooler all the time!
The 14-phase digital current design with any phase that can hold up to 90 amps unleashes extreme performance and optimizes overclocking power on the new processor. The Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE offers innovations like premium audio quality and feature rich I / O with an integrated I / O shield, and much more, tick all the boxes for users on system performance, power management, thermals and audio.
The 10th generation Intel Core processors is on the market, improved with up to 10 cores, 20 threads and 20 MB total caches, the performance improvement with the standard TDP up to 125 watts. The excess heat and TDP also increase, especially with overclocking on all cores. Many users opt for liquid cooling to effectively dissipate excess heat generated by the fast operation and further release the extreme overclocking performance of the processors. However, users often hesitate because general AIO liquid cooling cannot cover the VRM dissipation, and the monoblock for the processor and the VRM area of open liquid cooling is always difficult to purchase separately and offers the possibility to void the warranty.
To give users a convenient option without breaking the warranty, GIGABYTE has released the Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard with an all-new design with AIO 360 liquid cooling that can dissipate heat from processors and VRM at the same time.
GIGABYTE Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard features a 14-phase digital power design in which each phase can hold up to 90 amps with its Smart Power Stage design, which delivers up to 1260 amps for the best power balance to prevent the performance of processors from deteriorating VRM overheating.
Solid power pin connectors on the addition of Tantalum Polymer capacitors enhance the VRM’s transient response between high and low loads to reduce 22% of the voltage wave, providing more stable and purer power to improve processor stability so that users should not have to worry about overlocking failures caused by unstable power.
Aside from power and thermal management, the GIGABYTE Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard boasts an impressive memory configuration with 32 GB memory capacity with one slot. The unique XTREME MEMORY technology of the circuit board with anti-interference design reduces electromagnetic interference, providing better overclocking performance of in-memory users with greater stability.
The signal stabilizing function of the tantalum polymer capacitors at the base of the memory slots further improves the stability of the board, especially when overclocking at high XMP frequencies, allowing overclocked RAM performance at DDR4 5000 MHz speeds and above according to the test results.
Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE uses PCIe 4.0 quality PCBs, PCIe slots, M.2 slots and controllers for the highest bandwidth quality. To address this potential bottleneck, the Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard is equipped with Thermal Guard II. With unique adjustments in the mechanism, the new patented design ensures that both sides of the M.2 SSD are cooled sufficiently to avoid high-speed thermal throttling.
Z490 AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE can easily meet users’ need for heat dissipation from CPU and VRM, but for users looking for premium and more stylish systems, the flagship motherboard Z490 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE is highly recommended for an open-loop water cooling system .
Z490 AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE is based on the Z490 AORUS XTREME and offers extreme power, a memory circuit and expansion design. Via the AORUS All-In-One Monoblock, the heat from the CPU, chipset and even M.2 SSD can be dissipated simultaneously. Enhanced by the extra thick 7.5 W / mK LAIRD thermal conduction pad, contact between the VRM, chipset and monoblock is increased, providing superior heat conduction to avoid system overload instability. Meanwhile, the fashionable look and embedded dual digital RGB lighting design provide liquid cooling enthusiasts with the most premium liquid cooling system with custom style.
