To unleash full potential of multi-core CPU performance
For CPU with integrated GPU
Provide stable power for CPU with integrated PCIe & Memory controller
* 6+6 phases parallel power design
Support for DDR4 XMP Up to 5333 MHz and Beyond*
AORUS is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5333 MHz and beyond. All users need to do to attain this performance boost is make sure that their memory module is XMP capable and that the XMP function is activated and enabled on their AORUS motherboard.
* XMP Profile support may vary depending on memory module.
Shielded Memory Routing
All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.
Single 32GB Memory Module Support
The maximum memory capacity support on the B660 motherboard is 128GB. After Intel updated the memory reference code, a single slot can support up to 32GB. Therefore with populated 2 DIMM per channel on both channel, total memory capacity is 128GB, which was only available on High End Desktop (HEDT) platforms. For users who always run out of memory capacity, there is more bandwidth now for memory-intensive application such as rendering and video editing.

GIGABYTE B660 Series Motherboards' Un-throttled performance is guaranteed by innovative and optimized thermal design to ensure the best CPU, Chipset, SSD stability and low temperatures under full load application and gaming.
1. 2X Copper PCB
2X Copper PCBs effectively lower the component temperature with its high thermal conductivity and low impedance.
2. Fully Covered Thermal Design
High coverage MOSFET and integrated molding Heatsinks to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.
3. M.2 Thermal Guard
The M.2 Thermal Guard prevents high speed M.2 SSDs from throttling and bottlenecks as it helps to dissipate heat before it becomes an issue.
4. 5W/mK Thermal Pad
By using 1.5mm thicker 5W/mK thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time.
Fully Covered MOSFET Heatsink
1. 2X Larger Surface
Increased surface area up to 2X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.
2. Real One-piece Build
TMOS is a TRUE single piece heatsink. Its one-piece design and larger surface drastically improve the cooling performance against competitors’ multi-piece design.
3. Multi-Cut Design
TMOS features several channels and inlets on the heatsink. This design allows for the air flow to go through which leads to a great improvement on the heat transfer performance.
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.
Thermal Throttling As Temperature Rises
3% Cooler by Implementing 2X copper PCB Design
By adopting 2X copper on PCB inner layer, it lowers the components' temperature at least 3% by turning the PCB into a super thin PCB size copper heatsink to dissipate the heat from the components effectively, due to it’s high thermal conductivity and lower impedance.
Intelligent Fan Control Design
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.
