AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper high-end desktop processors are almost out and Gigabyte is now taking pre-orders for those interested. The X399 AORUS Gaming 7 in particular features RGB Fusion, Digital LED support, Smart Fan 5, M.2 thermal guards, 4-way Crossfire/SLI and more. Since there has been some hoopla regarding Intel’s X299 HEDT platform having VRM cooling issues, Gigabyte outfitted their X399 AORUS Gaming 7 with robust VRM heatsinks with heatpipes connecting to an additional heatsink behind the IO cover. This ensures that there are no VRM throttling problems under load or overclocked.
Gigabyte X399 Website Portal
Gigabyte has also launched their X399 website portal which provides links and information regarding the pre-order and availability. Their X399 AORUS Gaming 7 motherboard will also find home in several pre-built units come-launch-date from iBUYPOWER, CybertronPC, and Maingear. Each are offering their own sets of bonuses for those who pre-order. iBUYPOWER for example, will giveaway a free iBUYPOWER MEK Mechanical gaming keyboard with each. Meanwhile, Maingear will throw in a free 2-year warranty worth $99.
Those who buy the X399 AORUS motherboard will also get the chance to get an ‘Xpedition Pack’. Users are eligible once they register the product and are in the US or Canada. This includes a HyperX Cloud Headset and $50 Steam Gift card.
