Refined for Improved Performance

AORUS X470 motherboards are specifically built to harness the amplified power from 2nd Gen Ryzen chips. Overall clock speeds rose across the board for Zen+ CPUs with the highest stock turbo frequency reaching up to 4.3GHz. In response to the increased power, AORUS has fitted a proper finned heatsink to combat VRM temperatures and keep the system running strong. The X470 AORUS Gaming 7 sports a heatsink with over 100 fins and a direct heat pipe over the MOSFETs to soak up any excess heat. This is in addition to the 8 hybrid fan headers found around the motherboard powered by Smart Fan 5 to give full mastery over your cooling solution.

Compared to the previous generation, the X470 AORUS Gaming 7 rocks a bigger and better heat sink.Compared to the previous generation, the X470 AORUS Gaming 7 rocks a bigger and better heat sink.
