**B Grade** X299-Aorus Gaming 9 (Socket 2066) Intel X299 ATX Motherboard

Below is the original description for this product, any reference to warranty is to be ignored. Warranty for this item is 90 days as with all B Grade items.

B Grade items may have been used, have damaged packaging, missing accessories or a combination of these (Motherboards may be missing I/O shields).

Some items may have scuff marks or slight scratches but should otherwise be an operable product.
The Aorus Gaming 9 represents Gigabyte's upper tier platform for High-End Desktop Processors from the Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X generations that utilise the X299 chipset and demand a LGA2066 socket. This chipset, codenamed "Lewisburg", is notable for its up to 30 HSIO lanes (High-Speed Input/Output) as well as the maximum usable number of 24 PCIe Express 3.0 lanes. This makes it a true "no compromises" solution that allows multiple internal connectors to be utilised simultaneously.

The Features of the Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 9 at a Glance:

  • 5× PCIe (3.0) x16 (2× x16 / 1× x8 / 2× x4)
  • 7× USB 3.1 (1× Type-C / 4× Type-A / 2× internal)
  • 8× USB 3.0 (4× Type-A / 4× internal) & 4× USB 2.0 (internal)
  • 3× M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4) / 8× SATA 6G
  • 8× DIMM slots for DDR4-RAM (max. 128 GB with 28 or 44 lane CPU)
  • Includes ac-WiFi module and antennae
  • Gigabyte RGB Fusion RGB-LED lighting

The Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 9 in Detail

The Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 9 is a premium enthusiast motherboard using the ATX format and is designed for hardware enthusiasts and professionals looking for a X299- & Skylake-X or Kaby-Lake X pairing. The extremely stylish black board comes with five PCIe-x16 slots, of which two are connected to the chipset with a full 16 lanes while the other three are connected electrically by 8 or 4 data lines. This allows the use of a 28 or 44 lane CPU as well as NVIDIA's 3-Way-SLI or AMD's 3-Way- CrossFireX configuration.

Equipped with a total of eight DIMM-slots for DDR4-RAM, a CPU with 28 or 44 data lines can operate all slots in Quad-Channel mode with up to a maximum capacity of 128 GB of memory. A CPU with 16 lanes supports Dual-Channel mode over four slots with a maximum capacity of 64 GB. Officially DDR4 modules can be used at up to 2.400 MHz, and clockspeeds of up to 4.333 MHz are possible after overclocking.

The board provides extensive connectivity for data storage devices with three M.2-Slots for exceptionally fast NVMe-M.2 SSDs as well as eight SATA 6G ports for 3,5" or 2,5" hard drives and SSDs (including RAID support). The M.2 ports are connected to the chipset via four PCIe lanes using the 3.0 standard which enables, in combination with the NVMe protocol, a data transfer rate of almost 4 GB/s. This allows M.2 PCIe SSDs to function up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs! Furthermore the M.2 slots are equipped with thermal guards to allow the heat build-up on the modules to be reduced and prevent lost performance.

External Connectors

The I/O bracket of this performance-oriented motherboard comes with various useful ports to make life easier for users. Besides the new USB 3.1 Type-C, which is particularly thin and finally allows connection in either orientation, the board also comes with a backwards compatible USB 3.1 port. Thanks to the ASMedia 3142 USB 3.1 controller, maximum speeds of up to 16 Gbit/s are reached, three times faster than previous USB 3.0 ports. Of course the board provides four USB 3.0 ports for gaming peripherals and input devices, two of which come with DAC-UP Technology to allow improved reliability of power supplied to connected devices.

For unhindered network connectivity the Aorus Gaming 9 also comes with an Intel Gigabit LAN port, a Killer E2500 LAN port, and fast Killer 1535 Wireless-AC with two MMCX antennae, this allows important network processes to be prioritised entirely automatically - thereby ensuring a lag-free gaming experience. For quality sound the the Realtek ALC1220 Codec and a total of five gold-plated audio ports are available, supplemented by an optical S/PDIF-Out port. Furthermore a classic PS/2 port for keyboards and mice is provided on the I/O panel.

Internal Connectors

Internally the motherboard comes with, in addition to the 24-Pin and two 8-Pin power connectors, a CPU fan header, four system fan headers, a pump connector, a 3-A fan or pump connector, 3 LED headers, an Intel VROC Upgrade Key header, a front panel audio header, an S/PDIF Out header, a Thunderbolt add- in card connector, a TPM header, a power button, a reset button, a clear CMOS button, an ECO button, an OC button as well as two headers for temperature sensors apart from the already installed temperature sensors. Naturally the board also comes with further options for USB ports, which is why a header for two USB 3.1 ports and two headers for four USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports respective are provided.

Special Features

Counting among the unique features offered by the Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 9 is the sleek RGB-LED lighting thanks to Gigabyte's RGB Fusion. Besides several lighting areas on the board itself, several further LED strips can be connected and controlled with the Fusion software. The virtually limitless colours and combinations of effects are now almost a given.

In order to increase the stability of the motherboard it comes with reliable Steel Armor for the RAM and PCIe slots. In a time when ever larger and heavier graphics cards, CPU coolers, and RAM modules are becoming the norm - these strength enhancements offer a greater sense of reassurance for your installed high-end components.
