Description

Bitspower G-Chill Hybrid Water Block
AORUS and Bitspower have teamed up to create a superior performance hybrid water block featuring a high-flow pure copper water channel that’s placed directly over VRMs for superior cooling. G1/4" threaded fittings ensure compatibility with any setup you plan to create.

  • Composite Armor: A sleek polygonal heatsink armor designed to give your liquid cooled system the cutting edge look it needs.
  • Rubber Seals: Designed to withstand maximum pressure allowing users to obtain the most performance from their liquid cooled PC.
  • Copper Channel: With a high thermal conductivity nickel hexavalent chromium plate combined with a pure copper water channel funnelling directly from the integrated G1/4" Threaded Fittings. The G-Chill Hybrid Water Block was designed to be durable and superior at siphoning heat.
  • Thermal Padding: To ensure that all the critical points are covered thermal pads are used to help bridge the gap between VRMs and the liquid cooling block.
  • A breath of fresh air

    Air cooling has never been so easy. You may find that even without an active cooling solution, this state-of-the-art heatsink performs better than anything you've encountered. That's because its integral design was to improve upon traditional heatsinks.
  • The life of the party

    Most gamers don't stop, so your PC shouldn't either. Components that are consistently placed under thermal stress will often fail or die completely. With liquid cooling you can expect a longer lifespan from your PC.
  • Set the color that matches your style

    These motherboards boast an advanced LED system. With more customizability than ever and a convenient and intuitive UI, you'll have a blast making your own. LED enthusiasts now have even more options with the ability to customize multiple zones independently. For a more functional use, the bright and vibrant LEDs can be configured to display the PC's temperature or load.
  • Smart Fan 5

    With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard.
  • High-end Nichicon Fine Gold and WIMA audio caps

    The Z270X-Gaming 8 boasts a combination of Hi-Fi grade WIMA capacitors and Nichicon audio grade Fine Gold capacitors. While the Nichicon Fine Gold capacitors are suited for high-grade audio equipment, using state of the art technology to provide rich sound in the bass and clearer high frequencies, the WIMA FKP2 capacitors are being used widely in premium grade Hi-Fi systems. The addition of this to the exclusive audio technology makes for the ideal onboard sound solution for demanding audiophiles.
  • Turbo B-Clock

    Turbo B-Clock enables overclockers to have the ability to change their BCLK frequency to a desired value of their choice.
  • Diagnostic LEDs

    Onboard LEDs indicate if a malfunction is occurring, allowing users to quickly diagnose which major component is malfunctioning so they may take action promptly.
  • Ultra Durable memory armor

    Exclusive one piece stainless steel shielding design prevents against PCB distortion and twist, plate bending, in addition to preventing any possible ESD interference.
