Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce Motherboard

With the release of the Z390 range of motherboards, we have already been pretty impressed with some of the designs we have seen so far. In terms of that something amazing though, The Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce motherboard may certainly meet that remit for more than a few reasons.

The Monoblock design provided on this brand-new release is certainly going to be of interesting to many. Particularly those who take their overclocking very seriously!


The monoblock design provides an extra level of cooling. A level generally required by the more ‘high-end’ of results. The design should help keep the VRM (which (in very basic terms) supplies the power to the CPU) cool as well. Yes, this is a very cool design!

How Much Does It Cost?

While we don’t have a 100% confirmed price yet, this (in motherboard terms) represents the extreme (or should that be Xtreme) level of performance. As such, it’s going to carry a pretty hefty price tag of probably at least £350.00 and probably around £100 on top of that!

For those who take cooling and performance seriously though, a great motherboard is invaluable.
