AORUS Z390 Pro
The new Z390 motherboards are here at last, and we’ve got two stunning motherboards from Aorus. We’re impressed with the Aorus Master, now let’s take a look at the Aorus Pro! Equipped with a huge range of features to appeal to enthusiast PC builders, gamers, and creators, this is one of the more attractive Z390 solutions.
The Pro comes equipped with a superb 12 Phases Digital VRM. With the power hungry i9-9900K being supported, those who want to push to 5 GHz and beyond are going to need some robust power delivery. Furthermore, we know the new flagship CPU runs pretty hot. Of course, a motherboard with big VRM cooling and heatsinks is going to have something of an advance; such as the Pro.
Power and heat, no problem then. However, this board also comes equipped with dual M.2 storage (with Thermal Guards), Intel GbE LAN (with cFosSpeed), and much more. So, let’s get it out of the box, and take a closer look at what it has to offer!

What AORUS Had to Say
