Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite (WiFi)

Initially, the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite was only launched in a version without an onboard WiFi chip, but since Q4 2019 it is also available with WiFi 802.11ac as an option. Other features of the motherboard should be identical in both versions. In Gigabyte’s lineup of AMD X570-based motherboards, the Aorus Elite is the manufacturer’s entry-level model, with more affordable components and a lesser feature set than the more expensive Aorus Ultra and Pro. 

X570 Aorus Elite (WiFi): Key Features

Gigabyte launched a broad range of motherboards based on the X570 chipset in 2019, after AMD announced the platform along with its 3rd-generation Ryzen processors. The X570 platform uses the same AM4 socket as previous generations, so 2rd-gen Ryzen CPUs can also be used with X570 motherboards, while the 3rd-generation Ryzen is compatible with e.g. X470 and B450 motherboards (after a BIOS update). 

The main feature that separates the X570 platform from its predecessors (and at launch, all competitors) is the introduction of PCI Express (PCIe) 4.0 on the consumer market. This interface provides twice the bandwidth for PCIe 4-enabled SSDs that are able to utilize it. The X570 Aorus Elite/WiFi has two M.2 slots, both of which offer PCIe 4.0 bandwidth. One matching SSD heatsink is included with the board.  

Gigabyte’s Aorus range starts with the Elite/Elite Wifi, followed by the Pro, Ultra, Master, and Xtreme motherboards – all with an increasing number of features and premium components.

Compared to the more expensive Aorus models, the Aorus Elite comes with a less sophisticated VRM, fewer high-speed USB ports, and does not support Nvidia SLI multi-GPU setups. AMD Crossfire is however supported. Some of the more expensive boards also have an additional M.2 slot and 2.5 Gbit/s Ethernet. 

RAM support is identical in all Aorus X570 motherboards: up to 128 GB (4x 32 GB) of dual-channel DDR4 running at (overclocked) speeds of up to 4400 MHz. The I/O shield is pre-integrated and Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion 2.0 technology is included.



It forgoes some of the extras like USB Type-C, Wi-Fi and lots of RGB. But it handled overclocking our Ryzen 7 3700X without a complaint and performed well in our testing. (dutch):

As long as you can find your RGB salvation somewhere else, you will get the most value for money here if you are looking for an entry-level X570 board.

Meta-review: Testers seem to agree that the Aorus X570 Elite offers excellent value compared to more scaled-down entry-level alternatives. 
  • Good value
  • M.2 heatsink included
  • Integrated I/O shield


Pros: -Bios Flash successful ( 12/06/2019) on fresh build with CPU/RAM Removed -Trident Z Royal solid 3608.78 MHz with manual OC and 1800MHz Infinity Fabric -RGB Fusion 2.0 works on RAM and MB RGB (see in cons) -Great looking board -M.2 Heatsink keeps drive as cool as SATA SSD -BIOS is a learning curve, but covers everything -MB fan is quiet -Fan hub works -Fast Intel LAN -VRM and board runs cool while gaming

Cons: -Lack of fan headers on board -Placement of Type-C header -RGB fusion software works great with MB RGB, but RAM on full brightness on most presets -MB RGB is placed behind things or behind thick clear plastic. Lacks brightness.

Overall Review: After all the research of different boards for 3rd gen Ryzen, I narrowed it down to this board, Crosshair VIII Hero, MSI ACE, and ASRock TAICHI. Since I have the Ryzen 7 3800x and not the Ryzen 9 3900x , I felt the other boards were a little overkill for what I needed. X570 is fairly new and this board is first edition, no revisions, and was worried about potential issues, but so far so good. Once I got all my components to put together the PC, I looked up that it BEST the do the BIOS flash with a thumb drive and with the CPU and RAM removed, so i followed the instructions and the new BIOS installed successfully. I was a bit nervous because the light didn't come on the first try and this is my first time doing it, but after repeating the same sequence a couple time, it DID work. I then installed CPU, AMD Prism, RAM, and GPU, Loaded into BIOS and setup RAM timing, RAM voltage, Infinity Fabric, mildly aggressive fan curves and kept CPU timings to AUTO, but made sure AMD Precision Boost was disabled. IF YOU HAVE TWO RAM STICK, YOU HAVE TO USE SLOTS A2 AND B2 OR YOU WILL NEVER GET OVER 2133MHz. Booted Windows 10 Pro with UEFI Thumb drive, and sucessfully installed and booted properly. At the time I had EVGA GTX 1060 6GB SCC. I installed drivers and performed WIN10 updates, installed the mass amount of applications and that's about it. Coming from a FX-8350 on a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 Rev-4 (Still going strong on 4.24GHz OC), this was a huge difference. While gaming on AAA titles or stress tests, every core at some point goes to just under 4.5GHz (AVG 4.1GHz) @ just under 1.5v (avg 1.3v) with it set to "AUTO" which seems to me a high voltage, but no heat related issues or crashes. VRM runs cool and other than the CPU (73 max), the max temp across the board is in the 50's, but mostly in the 30's or less. Even after upgrading to a Sapphire 5700XT Special Edition last week ( didn't have driver issues with that either other than 2 games) which really woke up the CPU, but didn't drastically change board temps. I was considering getting an AIO and tinker with timings to get a stable overclock, but kinda like the AUTO feature where it's not running higher clocks 24/7, which in theory should prolong chip life, but probably gonna get the AORUS ACT800 to lower max temps and enable precision boost because I have great airflow in my Fractal Designs Define S2 and also waiting for THERMOSIPHON from ICEGIANT for the best cooling. Enjoying the Audio card playing 24-bit audio to my stereo using optical. I didn't really buy this board for the RGB, but I must say that it could be better. The lights themselves are bright and accurately display colors; however, the one behind the MOSFET heatsink is too far back and doesn't really shine like it could (looks to be mounted on board...not a deal breaker) and the 2 lower strips are covered by a thick diffused plastic, that completely kills the brightness and color accuracy, because you can see it's true potential leaking from behind the board. It's sad that the AORUS RGB software works better on my Trident Z RAM better than Trident's own software, but I'm glad I can sync it with MB and soon to be GPU when I receive my 3-pin ARGB cable. I'm hoping that they can figure out the RAM brightness before Trident does because all I want is a lower brightness on the static color preset. If your like me and want to gamble with good components that may have issues, but turns out to work fine, and makes a great, future-proof, $200 board for your setup, this is the one for you. Worst case scenario, you have to return it or contact the manufacture for the warranty.

Features and Layout

Gigabyte’s X570 Aorus Elite mainboard comes in on the budget end of the X570 platform (which is generally more expensive than previous-generation X470 boards), priced under $200. It comes with all of the basics, including PCIe 4.0 support, dual PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, an integrated I/O shield, large heatsinks covering the VRM and front panel USB Type-C support, among other features.

Supporting both Ryzen 2000 and Ryzen 3000 series processors, the X570 Aorus Elite
is the second board in Gigabyte's X570 product stack, above the non-Aorus-branded X570 Gaming X. The Elite aims to give users a well-balanced platform to build on, offering up-to-date connectivity and a robust power delivery area capable of driving all Ryzen 3000 processors.

The full complement of six SATA ports, two M.2 slots, an Intel I211 Gigabit NIC and Realtek ALC1200 audio codec which supports 7.1 surround are included, and the four DIMM slots are capable of supporting up to 128GB of RAM and/or speeds up to DDR4-4000 (when overclocked). Below is a complete list of specifications from Gigabyte.

The Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite’s appearance is fairly indistinct, with an all-black PCB and some stenciling around the chipset heatsink and audio area. Outside of that, we can see the Aorus branding on the left VRM heatsink along with a shroud covering the integrated rear IO plate. All heatsinks on the board have a brushed-aluminum finish with the chipset heatsink sporting a small fan, along with the Aorus falcon sitting proudly on top.

The DIMM and PCIe slots are also black, matching the board with the primary, metal-clad PCIe slot, which Gigabyte calls Ultra Durable PCIe armor. All other connectors, including the 8-pin EPS, 24-pin ATX and the SATA ports are all black as well.

RGB LEDs do make an appearance on the board. They’re found under the IO shroud by the VRM heatsink, as well as a line on the bottom-left side used to separate the audio bits from the rest of the board. The latter provides a nice glow underneath, while the RGB around the VRM makes for a nice accent on top.

Overall, the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite should fit into most build themes, with its basic-black styling and reserved use of integrated RGB LED lighting.

Starting off at the top half of the motherboard, we get a closer view of the heatsinks and shroud covering the VRMs and back of the IO area. Between the shroud and left heatsink with the Aorus branding on it is where we find that first RGB LED strip. Just above that is a single 8-pin EPS connector.

The VRM for the Elite is listed as a 12+2 phase system on the website. Digging a bit deeper we see the board uses an Infineon IR35201 controller in a 6+1 configuration and uses phase doublers (Infineon IR3599) to run in the 12+2 Gigabyte states. The VRM’s should be able to handle any of the Zen 2 CPUs at stock and with some overclocking.

The top half of the board also houses all four fan headers. Three are located across the top while the 4th is just above the M.2 slot next to the rear IO shroud. All fan headers are hybrids that support both PWM- and DC-controlled fans. Gigabyte’s Smart Fan 5 software manages all the fan headers and allows control over them through six temperature sensors on the board which you can base your fan off of. For example, if your PCH gets hot, the case fan header can spin faster. It also supports “Fan Stop” capabilities which, as the name implies, shuts off the fans below a certain threshold.

Toward the right side of the board, we see the four DIMM slots which skip any armor (not that it’s needed), but use a double-sided locking mechanism to secure the modules. Last, we can see two of the four RGB headers in the upper right-hand corner (the others are located across the bottom). In each area, one header supports your basic RGB strips with a 4-pin setup (2A max) while the other supports addressable RGBs (5A max, 1000 LED max) with a 3-pin header.

Moving down to the bottom portion of the board, on the left side is the audio section. The Realtek ALC1200’s 7.1-channel chip is hidden underneath the EMI shield, with Amp-Up Audio stenciled on top. Below that are two rows of audio caps with the yellow Chemicons on the left and red WIMA FKP2 capacitors on the right. Separating the audio section from the rest of the board is a “noise guard,” which also includes the 2nd area with RGB illumination. Both sets of LEDs can be controlled via the included RGB Fusion 2.0 software, along with the headers.

The PCIe area consists of two full-length slots and two x1 size slots. The top PCIe connector uses Gigabyte’s armor around the slot to prevent shearing with heavy video cards. The top slot runs at a full PCIe 4.0 x16 sourced from the CPU while the bottom slot is limited to PCIe 4.0 x4 bandwidth from the chipset. The two x1 size slots are also PCIe 4.0.

Also found around the PCIe slots are the two M.2 connectors. The first is located above the primary PCIe slot and has a heatsink on it while the second is above the other full-length slot, sans heatsink. Both connectors support SATA and PCIe 4.0 x4/x2 SSDs up to 110mm in length. The nice bit (thanks to the extra bandwidth addorded by PCIe 4.0) is that there’s no port sharing when using both slots.

The chipset heatsink covers a lot of area on the board and has a small fan inside to help keep the 11W chip cool. We only heard the fan on boot when it ramps up to full speed and then winds down. Outside of that, the fan remained inaudible, even under heavy loads including stress testing. Sliding more to the right are the six SATA3 (6 Gbps) ports.

Finally, across the bottom are several headers which include the 2nd set of RGB headers, the Q-Flash button, and front-panel USB headers. There is nothing out of the ordinary to report on this front, so here’s a bulleted list of the other headers:

  • Front Panel Audio
  • aRGB and RGB headers
  • Q-Flash button
  • TPM header
  • 2x USB 2.0 headers
  • 2x USB 3.0 headers
  • Front panel header

Last but far from least is the rear I/O. Surprisingly, the X570 Aorus Elite has an integrated rear I/O plate, which gives the board a more expensive feel and a cleaner look. Gigabyte used the same design cues with an Aorus falcon on the I/O plate as well as the same lined pattern stenciled on the board.

But it isn’t just about looks. There are a total of 10 USB ports available: Four USB 2.0 (black), four USB 3.0 (blue and white - the latter for bios flashback/Q-Flash) and two USB 3.1 Gen2 ports. One thing you won’t find is a USB Type-C port of any kind, but such as life when buying an entry-level board. You’ll also find the Intel I211 LAN port here, as well as the audio stack (5 analogs, one SPDIF). If you happen to be using an APU on this motherboard, the video comes from a single HDMI 2.0 port.
