Quick OverviewGigabyte H470 AORUS PRO AX
Network & Connectivity
The Gigabyte H470 AORUS PRO AX LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard is designed around the Intel H470 chipset, supporting 10th Gen Intel Core, Pentium Gold, and Celeron processors with an LGA 1200 socket. It has four memory slots, supporting up to 128GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM, which can run up to 2933 MHz. There are six SATA III ports and two M.2 slots for storage. This motherboard features an ATX form factor, allowing for use in mid-tower and full-tower cases. Other integrated features include Intel 2.5 Gb/s Ethernet, Realtek 7.1-channel audio support, RGB Fusion 2.0 support, and Gigabyte Q-Flash Plus.
This motherboard features the Intel H470 Chipset and the Intel LGA Socket 1200, making it ready for 10th Gen Intel Core, Pentium Gold, and Celeron processors.
The dual M.2 slots support data transfer rates of up to 32 Gb/s via PCIe 3.0 x4 bandwidth, enabling quicker boot times and app load times with OS or application drives.
Smart Fan 5 keeps your system cool, allowing you to interchange the fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Smart Fan 5 supports both PWM and Voltage mode fans, making this motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.
RGB Fusion 2.0 gives you full control of onboard RGB and external RGB devices and lights. Already feature filled with customizable colors and patterns, RGB Fusion 2.0 also has addressable LED support.
Update the BIOS easily without installing the CPU, memory, and graphics card with Gigabyte Q-Flash Plus. You don't have to install components or enter the BIOS menu to flash the BIOS. Just download and save a new BIOS file on the USB flash drive, then press the dedicated Q-Flash Plus button.

Whether you build a new PC or upgrade the existing one, the motherboard is the most vital component to choose when you have already picked the processor of your choice.
It is important to keep a few things in mind while purchasing the mainboard:
You can single out a great CPU from either Intel or AMD, but whatever CPU you choose, make sure your mainboard has the right socket for the selected CPU. The latest mainstream AMD chips use AM4 sockets while current Intel 9th Gen Core CPUs require LGA 1151v2 sockets.
Motherboards typically come in three sizes from largest to smallest: ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ATX motherboards. ATX motherboards offer the highest number of RAM and expansion slots. If you are looking for a budget build, you can use a smaller chassis with the micro or mini boards, but you'll have to settle for fewer PCIe slots, RAM banks, and other connectors.
Most mainstream boards these days have four RAM slots, although Mini-ITX models often have just two, and high-end boards frequently offer eight. The amount of slots, of course, limits the amount of RAM you can install.
It’s essential to check the I/O area on a motherboard to make sure it has the external connection options you need. You may need more USB 3 ports while others may want more audio ports. Among the most common ports, there are USB 3, USB 2, audio, USB type C, USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2, HDMI, Display port, PS/2 and Thunderbolt 3 ports. Ports one probably want the most are USB 2 and USB 3 Gen1 ports, as the first one is perfect for keyboard, mouse, and many other devices and the later one work with most peripherals. USB 3.1 Gen2 and USB Type-C ports will come handy in the near future, although most peripherals do not support this standard yet.
