Intel® B460 AORUS Motherboard with RGB Fusion 2.0 with Digital LEDs, Intel® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed, Advanced Thermal Design with Enlarged Heatsink, USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C , Dual M.2 Slots, M.2 E-key Slot for PCIe WIFI Module Upgradable
4+2 Hybrid Digital VRM Solution with Low RDS(on) MOSFET
GIGABYTE 400 series motherboards use a 4+2 Hybrid digital PWM + Lower RDS(on) MOSFETs design to support the latest Intel® Core™ CPUs by offering incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components as well as delivering enhanced system performance and ultimate hardware scalability.
GIGABYTE Ultra-Efficient M.2 Thermal Guard
With durability in mind, GIGABYTE provides a thermal solution for M.2 SSD devices. The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents throttling and bottlenecks from high speed M.2 SSDs as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
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.
Hybrid Fan Pin Headers
Assume complete control over your liquid cooling setup! Smart Fan 5 receives up-to-the-second information on flow-rate through the Hybrid Fan Pin Headers—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.
Intel® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Networking
Intel® GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.
Connecting the Future - USB Type-C™
The World's Next Universal Connector
The USB Type-C™ is a new reversible connector that is loaded with useful features such as USB 3.2 Gen1 support and faster charging capabilities. Powered by the Intel® controller, this little port is the better USB Type-C™.
Soar Free With WIFI
M.2 E key slot for PCIe WIFI module Upgardable
WIFI module Upgrade kit offers an easy way to upgrade WIFI Upgradeable motherboards with new and faster Gigabit WIFI connectivity without having to upgrade to a whole new system.
GIGABYTE is reputable for its product durability and high quality manufacturing process. Needless to say, we use the best components we can find for the B460 AORUS motherboard and reinforce every slot to make each of them solid and durable.
