Gigabyte X299 Aorus Gaming 3 Motherboard Review

Rating: 7.0.

Gigabyte has been pushing its Aorus brand in the motherboard market by outfitting the gaming-calibre motherboards with adjusted styling, enhanced fan control, and increased use of RGB LEDs. We examine the £270 X299 Aorus Gaming 3 to see what one of Gigabyte’s more ‘affordable’ X299 motherboards can offer.

You can watch our unboxing video on YouTube HERE or on Vimeo (below).

Given its Aorus branding, it comes as no surprise to see the X299 Gaming 3 featuring heavy RGB LED use and an eye-catching design. Digging a little deeper, Gigabyte outlines the motherboard’s support for digital LED strips in addition to the enhanced RGB Fusion app.

Coming in at £270, Gigabyte has plenty of flexibility to offer premium features on the Gaming 3, despite its position towards the more affordable end of the X299 market. As such, there are dual M.2 slots, 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2, Realtek ALC1220-based audio, and an Intel NIC. The International Rectifiers-based VRM and promise of proficient fan control are likely to appeal to performance junkies.

 

Coming in as one of the more affordable X299 options, can the Gigabyte X299 Aorus Gaming 3 prove itself as a worthy performer for a power-hungry Skylake-X CPU?

    yawn…..

    i was using intel (and only intel) since 2008… but this x299.. no thanks.

    i rather buy a threadripper. intel has lost it… too expensive for what it offers.
    i am not stupid enough to pay 40% more for 10-20% more real life performance.

    and who was the genius that thought using TIM on a high end CPU is a good idea?

    my main system is still a x99 but i changed my sandy bridge 2600k system to a ryzen 1700… best CPU deal since 2011. go AMD!!!
