Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion on Z370 Series AORUS Motherboards are now upgraded with Digital LED support. With external digital LED strips*, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
AORUS Gaming Motherboards will support either 5v or 12v digital LED lighting strips and up to 300 LED lights. RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs comes with 9 new patterns and various speed settings with more to come.Multi-Zone Light Show DesignNow offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.Surround LightingMulti-light zones are equipped with high brightness RGB LEDs, namely the CPU, Memory, Armor, Audio, PCI-Express and Swappable Overlay for Accent LED. When it’s all set and done, your system will shine like never before.Swappable Overlay for Accent LEDAORUS brings even more color and life to your system with an Accent LED Overlay. This overlay complements the RGB Fusion technology in AORUS Motherboards adding more flare and style to your gaming machine.

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.
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.Hybrid Fan Pin Headers & Temperature SensorsAssume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate and water-temperature through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers or 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. • Includes support for one High-Current Pump up to 3 Amps with built-in overcurrent protection—a must for high-end high current fansTurbo B-ClockBuilt-in Advanced Performance Tuning IC Turbo B-Clock Tuning IC in the AORUS Z370 series motherboards enables overclockers to have the ability to change their BCLK frequency to a desired value of their choice. With the new linear range adjustment option of the Tuning IC, ranges from 90MHz to 500MHz are now possible, so that overclockers are not limited to the 5% ranges of traditional straps.
*Turbo B-Clock overclocking range may vary according to CPU, chipset and used devices capabilities.Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 4133MHz and Beyond*AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 4133MHz 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.Broad DDR4 Compatibility with Support List of 1000+ DDR4 Validated?AORUS partners very closely with memory vendors from around the world to ensure that modules offered by popular memory brands are compatible with AORUS Motherboards. AORUS has verified over 1000+ different modules to ensure performance in a AORUS built system.Triple PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their system’s Triple NVMe M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 SupportExtreme Performance with Gen3 x4 NVMe PCIe SSDsAORUS' Z370 motherboards offer the industry’s best compatibility in terms of NVMe storage for users who demand high capacity and seek the best performance.
