Gigabyte Z390 Aorus WaterForce Build – Leo’s £3500 Custom Loop! ReviewPosted on 2019-04-30 14:07:51 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Xtreme WaterForce is the most expensive gaming motherboard we have ever heard of, with a price around £950 that makes even the MSI MEG Z390 Godlike look like a bargain buy. The key feature of the Z390 WaterForce is, as the name suggests, the monoblock that covers the CPU socket, VRMs, chipset and M.2 SSD slots. We are familiar with monoblocks made by specialist cooling companies such as EKWB, however this block is produced in-house by Gigabyte themselves. In addition to that hefty piece of hardware you also get a great many accessories but even so, the price looks very steep. And that was the reason we decided against a straight review that assesses features, performance and value for money and instead chose to gather a large pile of components and build a high end gaming PC that makes the most of this glorious hardware.
