Official Latest BIOS:(Updated 8/23/17)
X299 AORUS Gaming 7: F7m
Change log:
1. Enhanced OC compatibility
2. Intel® VROC ready
3. Enhance i7-7800X DDR Overclocking
4. Improve XMP DDR compatibility
5. Improve TjMax offset option

Latest BETA BIOS:(Updated 8/8/17)

Latest BETA BIOS:(Updated 7/26/17)
X299 AORUS Gaming 3: F6I
X299 AORUS Gaming 7: F7I
X299 AORUS Gaming 9: F6I
Change log:
Fixed TB3 menu disappearing in BIOS
TJMax offset adjustments:
Max chip spec TJMax is 120C. This is the baseline.
GIGABYTE max TJMax is 105C. This is the ceiling.
Default TJMax is 95C.
TJMax offset formula is: 120 - TJMax offset = TJMax in Windows. Thus to set TJMax in windows to 100, set
TJMax offset to 20 (120-20=100).
If you set TJMax offset to less than 15 you will see a TJMax in windows for 105C.

FAQ for latest BIOS updated 7/7/17

Q: What is "Enhanced Multi-Core Performance Mode"?
A: Intel Turbo Boost 3.0 picks two cores to run at 45x, the rest will run 40x. With EMCP all cores will be boosted to 45x.

Q: Isn't that the same as overclocking?
A: Yes and no. Typically when overclocking users have to sacrifice using P-states. This creates excess heat when idle. EMCP keeps all the power saving features but pushes Turbo 3.0 to all cores when under load.

Q: What about power modes, which should I use when testing?
A: Both balanced and high performance power modes will work with EMCP.

Recommended stress testing software:

Prime v26.6 for Non-AVX
Prime v28.x for AVX
Prime v29.x for AVX512

Many people here are using Prime 95 for testing. For a good load work, running your system with Prime95 v26.6 at 1344K is the first step. Using this setting can also let you get a good comparison to other people's testing results.

Oh. You got an i9-7900X pre-delidded processor from Silicon Lottery? You are so lucky bro. I ordered my 7900X online once it was available. I even didn't know there is someone selling pre-delidded CPU until I went to the V299 VRM disaster thread.

Currently there is no delid tool for LGA-2066 processor available in the market. For what I know so far, there are two confirmed delid tools for SkyLake-X and KabyLake-X LGA-2066 CPUs.

Delid Die Mate X(Click to watch the video of delidding a LGA-2066 processor)

Delid Master(Click to watch the video of delidding a LGA-2066 processor)

Delid Die Mate X may be the delid tool only for SkyLake-X and KabyLake-X LGA-2066 CPUs like 7740X and 7900X.

Delid Master, as what the video shows, is width adjustable, which means it can also be used for KabyLake and SkyLake like 6700K and 7700K.

Anyone know if there are any differences between the gaming 7 and 9? I know the 9 has the led thing on the rear i/o along with covers for the back of the board and m2 slots. Is there anything as far as performance is concerned that would make the 9 worth the extra $100? This will be getting paired with a binned SL 7900x when i can get one.

Singularity Cases Spectre
Intel 9900k @ 5.2ghz 1.365v
Nvidia 2080 TI SLI @ 2130mhz
G.Skill Trident Z memory 2x8gb 4000mhz 16-17-17-28 1.45v

Both the gaming 7 and 9 have backlit I/O plates

Audio chips are different:

Gaming 9 : 127dB SNR AMP-UP Audio with High-End ESS SABRE 9018K2M DAC, LME 49720 and OPA1622 OP-AMP, WIMA audio capacitor
Gaming 7 : 121dB SNR AMP-UP Audio with ALC1220 & High-End ESS SABRE 9018 DAC with WIMA audio capacitor

and the 9 comes with an additional (digital?) RGB LED strip to place inside your case.
