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.

ADVANCED THERMAL SOLUTION

1. LAIRD 5 W/mK Thermal Pad

By using 1.5mm thicker 5 W/mK thermal conductivity pads, it can transfer 2.7x more heat compared to traditional thermal pads in the same time.

2. LAIRD 5 W/mK Thermal Pad

Built-in M.2 heatsinks prevent high-speed, large capacity PCIe 3.0 SSDs from throttling due to overheating.

3. Enlarged Surface Heatsink

This increases surface area to improve thermal efficiency with better airflow and heat exchange.
