Overview

Innovative design, cutting-edge functionality, state-of-the-art aesthetics, sophisticated thermal design, next generation network connectivity ,Hi-Fi level audio system. TRX40 AORUS XTREME is the new definition of a flagship motherboard.

Direct 16+3 Phases Infineon Digital VRM Solution

TRX40 AORUS XTREME motherboard uses latest new generation Infineon multiphase PWM controller, and a total 16+3 phase for vCore and SOC, all with Infineon TDA21472 Power Stage MOSFET which is capable of providing at least 70A of power from each phase, for a total of amazing 1330A. Power design is no longer a bottleneck for this motherboard. 

2x Copper PCB

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 is necessary when overclocking. 

Right-Angled Connectors

TRX40 AORUS XTREME uses revolutionary Right-Angled Connectors design, 90% of pin headers and connectors on motherboard are right-angled and relocated to one side of PCB. The never-seen-before design help easier cable management and better in-chassis air-flow when installing great amount of devices.

Noise Detection

With the new Noise Detection function, you can monitor noise level of all devices including fans, CPU coolers, graphics card, etc. in real time, and you can determine how fast your fan speed needs to be. Our bundled Noise Detection cable doesn’t include any sound recording function, it simply detects sound pressure while protecting your privacy. 

Smart Fan 5

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.

Fan Stop

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

Assume 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.
