UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE

With technology moving so fast, GIGABYTE still keep up with the latest trends and provide our customers with advanced features and latest technology. GIGABYTE B660 Series motherboards come with upgraded power solution, latest storage standards and outstanding connectivity to enable optimize performance for gaming.

Twin Hybrid VRM Design

To ensure maximum Turbo Boost and performance of Intel new generation CPU, GIGABYTE B660 equips the best VRM design we’ve ever built with the highest quality components.

DDR4 XMP  

Aorus is offering a tested and proven platform that ensures proper compatibility with profiles up to 5333MHz 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.

Single 32GB Support

The maximum memory capacity 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.

Shielded Memory Routing

All memory routing is under the PCB inner layer shielded by a large ground layer to protect from external interference.

Triple PCIe 4.0/3.0 x4 M.2 Connectors with Thermal Guard

AORUS Gaming Motherboards are focused on delivering M.2 technology to enthusiasts who want to maximize their Systems’ potential.

Hybrid Cores Optimization

With new Intel Hybrid technology, GIGABYTE exclusively creates two new “CPU Upgrade” in BIOS profiles to meet different users’ scenarios by adjusting P-Core and E-Core activation and voltage policy.

ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION

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.

Fully covered Mosfet Heatsink

2X Large Surface

  • Increased surface area up to 2X larger compared to traditional heatsinks. It improves heat dissipation from the MOSFETs.

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.

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 of the heat transfer performance

AORUS 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.

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.

Smart Fan 6

Smart Fan 6 contains several unique cooling features that ensure gaming PC maintain its performance while staying cool and quiet. Multiple fan headers can support PWM/DC fan and pump, and users can easily define each fan curve based on different temperature sensors across the board via intuitive user interface.

High Current Support

  • Each fan headers support PWM and DC fan and Water cooling Pump , and up to 24W (12V x 2A) with Over-Current Protection

Precision Control

  • 7 temperature/fan speed control points for precise fan curve

Dual Curve Mode

  • Slope/Stair dual mode for different user scenario

Fan Stop

  • Fan can stop completely below users’ specified temperature point

Smart Fan 6 BIOS UI

1Improve fan curve UI

  • We increase control points from 5 to 7 and larger fan speed graph for precise and easier fan curve control.

2Slope/Stair dual graph mode

  • Fan curve can be quickly switch with Slope and Stair modes for different user scenario. Slope is traditional and intuitive linear fan speed curve. With newly added Stair non-linear mode, fan keeps at same speed between specified temperature interval.

3Manual Input

  • For advanced users, we provide fan speed manual input for more precise control.

4EZ Tuning

  • Use can place 4 EZ Tuning points at rough temperature/fan speed, and Smart Fan 6 can quickly generate a fan curve.

5Fan curve profile

  • Fan curve profile can be saved in BIOS ROM, profile will be kept after updating BIOS.

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.
