The phase digital power design with each phase holding up to 90 amps unleash extreme performance and optimizes overclocking ability on the new processor. GIGABYTE Z AORUS motherboards use XTREME MEMORY technology with an anti-interference design to improve memory overclocking and stability. Z AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE offers innovations as top-of-the-line audio quality, and feature-rich I/O with an integrated I/O shield, and much more, checking all the boxes for users on system performance, power management, thermals, and audio.

The 10th generation of Intel Core™ processors has been in the market, enhanced by up to 10 cores, 20 threads, and 20 MB total caches, the performance boost with the default TDP ramping up to Watts. The excess heat and TDP also boost especially when overclocking on all cores. Many users choose liquid cooling to effectively dissipate excess heat generated from high-speed operation, and further release the extreme overclocking performance of the processors. However users often hesitate since general AIO liquid cooling cannot cover VRM dissipation, and the monoblock for processor and VRM area of open liquid cooling is always difficult to purchase separately as well as raise the possibility to break the warranty. To provide users a convenient option without breaking the warranty, GIGABYTE released the Z AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard with a whole new design with AIO liquid cooling which can dissipate the heat from the processors and VRM at the same time.

It’s easy to assemble the monoblock of the Z AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard. Users only need to fasten four screws like the general AIO water cooling system to complete the assembly. Enhanced by a direct-touch heatpipe and new generation W/mK LAIRD Thermal Conductivity Pad, it increases the contact between the VRM and thermal pad which provides superior heat conduction, dropping 23% heat compared to non-liquid cooling designs. The excess heat generated from the processors and VRM pass to the monoblock, proceeding heat convection through the cooling water and three sets of dual-ball bearing at cm, which boost the heat dissipation efficiency. The AORUS Falcon logo with RGB lighting on the monoblock and digital LED lighting on fans enables lighting synchronization with system or peripherals so that users can showcase their own style. With both functionality and style, the metal backplate of AORUS motherboards adds extra sturdiness and rigidity to the motherboard while dissipates heat quickly away from the backside components and the PCB, avoiding system instability caused by overloading.

GIGABYTE Z AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard features a phase digital power design in which each phase can hold up to 90 amps with its Smart Power Stage design, delivering up to Amps for the best power balance to prevent the processors’ performance drop from VRM overheating. Solid power pin connectors on the addition of Tantalum Polymer capacitors improve the transient response of the VRM between high and low loads to reduce 22% of voltage wave, providing more stable and pure power to enhance the stability of the processor so that users won’t have to worry about overlocking failures caused by unstable power.

Aside from power and thermal management, GIGABYTE Z AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard boasts an impressive memory configuration with single-slot 32GB memory capacity. The PCB’s unique XTREME MEMORY technology with anti-interference design reduces electromagnetic interference, which ensures users’ higher overclocking performance on memory with more stability. The signal stabilizing function of the tantalum Polymer capacitors at the base of the memory slots further enhance the stability of the board especially when overclocking at XMP high frequencies, enabling overclocked RAM performance at DDR4 MHz speeds and above according to the test results.

Z AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE uses PCIe grade PCBs, PCIe slots, M.2 slots, and controllers for the highest bandwidth quality. To address this potential bottleneck, Z AORUS MASTER WATERFORCE motherboard equips with Thermal Guard II.

MSI Spawns Liquid-Cooled Z Motherboard In Collaboration with EKWB

If you've been looking into buying one of the new 10th-Generation Intel Comet Lake-S chips, then you almost certainly know that they can be quite power-hungry, which means tons of heat will be generated. To manage this, MSI has partnered up with EKWB to build the MPG Z Carbon EK X motherboard, which comes with a purpose-built EKWB monoblock installed from the factory.

At the heart of the motherboard resides a complex, 12+1+1 phase power delivery subsystem for the CPU, and with all the RGB goodies aboard it's clear that this is not a motherboard for the faint of heart. If you're planting anything but a K in here, you're doing something wrong because this is a board built for overclocking, and the K's come with the best silicon. 

The EKWB monoblock aboard is themed to MSI's looks, and cools the CPU and VRM circuitry. This means that you pretty much have no choice but to use this motherboard in a custom loop, but that's not so bad -- just buy another board if you aren't planning on doing this. 

Beyond all that stuff, MSI's new board follows a pretty standard Z design, featuring four DDR4 memory slots, support for up to two graphics cards, high-end audio circuitry, G Ethernet and WiFi 6 AX support, along with ASmedia USB Gen2x2 controller to keep up with the latest standards.

Intriguingly, the board also comes with EKWB's leak testing kit, pressurizes the loop with air to test it.

Pricing is set at $, which is actually quite reasonable for a board of this caliber, considering that Monoblocks by themself often cost between $ and $, already.

    Extreme Power Design

    To unleash the full potential of the new Intel core CPU, the motherboard requires the best CPU power design. With the best quality components and GIGABYTE R&D design capability, Z AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE is a true beast among motherboards.

    16+1 Phases

    Digital Power Design
    Z AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE motherboard uses an pure digital CPU power design which includes a digital PWM Controller with Smart Power Stages and is capable of providing 90A of power from each phase for a total of A. This % digital controller, new Tantalum Polymer Capacitors array, and additional 8+8 Solid-pin CPU Power Connectors offer incredible precision and stability in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum overclocking performance from the new core 10th Gen. Intel® Core™ processors.

    * Doubled from 8 phases with current balancing.

    Due to the lower resistance of the polymer materials, tantalum polymer caps generally have better ESR and ripple current specifications, as well as better performance at high frequency.

      In order to unleash the full performance of the new high core count CPUs, GIGABYTE uses true power phases, a fully load-balanced VRM design with doublers, and a tantalum polymer capacitor array. By using doublers, the power design ensures that the high power draw of the CPU is fully balanced across all MOSFETs to achieve better efficiency and lower temperatures. In contrast, MOSFETs in competitors' traditional parallel power designs are not as well balanced which leads to lower efficiency and higher temperatures. For sudden changes between idle and high load states from the CPU, GIGABYTE utilizes a tantalum polymer capacitor array directly under the CPU socket as a buffer to improve transient response and stability under high CPU frequencies.
