    Don't just make your PC shine, make it a work of art that friends will envy. With the GIGABYTE RGB Fusion mobile app users can watch as they control the lighting within their gaming PC. This gives users ease of access as they try and adjust colors and speeds for different modes, all this can be done away from the keyboard and monitor of their PC.
    Surround Lighting
    Now offering more LED customizations than ever, users can truly adapt their PC to represent their lifestyle. With full RGB support and a redesigned RGB Fusion application, the user has complete control over the LEDs which surround the motherboard.
    Swappable Overlay for Accent LED
    GIGABYTE brings even more color and life to your system with an Accent LED Overlay. This overlay complements the RGB Fusion technology in GIGABYTE Motherboards adding more flare and style to your gaming machine. With the swappable overlay users can utilize different patterns and designs to make their system their own.
    Supports RGBW Light Strips
    Independently Programmable Onboard Pin Header for RGBW LED Strips
    Not bright enough? You can install standard 12V external RGB or RGBW light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its color from the RGB Fusion software. With RGBW light strips that have a dedicated white color LED, you can have brighter and more vibrant colors. No need to worry when choosing light strips as the GIGABYTE motherboards support a wide variety of RGBW light strips on the market thanks to the RGB Fusion software that allows users to redefine the pin location for the R/G/B Signal.
    Smart Fan 5
    With Smart Fan 5 users can ensure that their gaming PC can maintain its performance while staying cool. Smart Fan 5 allows users to interchange their fan headers to reflect different thermal sensors at different locations on the motherboard. Not only that, with Smart Fan 5 more hybrid fan headers that support both PWM and Voltage mode fans have been introduced to make the motherboard more liquid cooling friendly.
    All Hybrid Fan Pin Headers
    All Hybrid Fan Headers can automatically detect the type of cooling device whether it be fan or pump with different PWM or Voltage mode. Supports up to 2 amps with built-in overcurrent protection-a must for high-end high current fans.
    Closed Loop Water Cooling
    CPU Fan
    System Fan
    Water Cooling Pump
    New Smart Fan 5 Software
    Choose from different modes, Quiet to Full Speed, to match your system usage scenario. For each fan or pump, you can use the intuitive fan curve to define trigger thresholds and corresponding fan speeds.
    Interoperable Sensors and Fans
    Each fan can be customized to operate at different speeds according to any defined temperature source input (except the CPU fan).
    Fan Curve
    Customize fan curves based on specific temperatures with the intuitive graphical UI.
    Enhanced BIOS Interface
    The enhanced BIOS interface also has the advanced features seen in the Smart Fan 5 UI, such as: the ability to set triggers based on different temperature sensors on the board, fan curve definition and the temperature interval setting, which can prevent fan rotation noise caused by sudden temperature change-all without having to load Windows.
    ALC 1220 120dB SNR HD Audio with Smart Headphone Amp
    Exceptional audio listening experience with 120dB SNR and support for DSD128 hardware decode. Smart Headphone Amp automatically adjusts volumes based on detected headphone impedance.
    120dB SNR High Definition Audio
    High-End Audio Components
    Audio Noise Guard with Ambient LED Trace Path Lighting
    Smart Headphone Amp
    Automatically detects impedance of your head-worn audio device, whether earbuds or high-end headphones to provide optimal audio dynamics-preventing issues such as low volume and distortion.
    USB DAC-UP 2
    GIGABYTE improves upon USB DAC-UP technologies with USB DAC-UP 2. USB DAC-UP 2 continues to provide clean, isolated and low-noise power while adding the ability to compensate for voltage drop.
    Virtual reality pioneers and gamers alike can rest assured that their expensive accessories and peripherals will not encounter connectivity or power deficiency issues with the GIGABYTE USB DAC-UP 2. With Gaming Gear drawing large amounts of power and having firm specification requirements USB DAC-UP 2 is up for the challenge.
    Immersive VR Gaming Experience
    • VR requires more performance than Full HD graphics for a steady 90FPS or greater.
    • Only Gaming PCs can provide the best VR experience.
    2-Way CrossFire Multi Graphics
    Multi-graphics configuration offers better graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.
    Intel® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed Internet Accelerator Networking
    Intel® GbE LAN features cFosSpeed, a network traffic management application which helps to improve network latency and maintain low ping times to deliver better responsiveness in crowded LAN environments.
    Fast Onboard Storage with NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 110mm M.2 (Up to 32 Gb/s)
    GIGABYTE's M.2 solution offers considerably faster storage performance and support for both PCIe and SATA interfaces for M.2 SSD devices.
    PURE SPEED GIGABYTE Extreme USB 3.1 Motherboards
    The ASMEDIA 2142 USB 3.1 controller utilizes 2 PCIe Gen3 lanes, offering a total of up to 16 Gb/s, which means you have extra bandwidth to take full control of the 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 ports. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C™ and the traditional USB Type-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.
    Connecting the Future - USB Type-C™
    • The World's Next Universal Connector
    • Reversible USB Type-C™ with USB 3.1 Gen 2
    Diagnostic LEDs
    Hardware Troubleshooting at a Glance
    Onboard LEDs controlled by the system BIOS indicate if a malfunction is occurring, allowing users to quickly diagnose which major component (CPU/DDR/VGA/HDD) is malfunctioning so they may take action promptly.
    GIGABYTE Patented Double Locking Bracket
    Dual Armor DIMM and PCIe Metal Shielding
    Never worry about your heavy graphics card damaging your motherboard again. GIGABYTE's proprietary Ultra Durable PCIe Metal Shielding reinforces the PCIe connector to prevent slot damage due to heavy graphics card. The DIMM and PCIe metal shield also provides extra strength for when you forget to release the lock while replacing your component, adding a foolproof option which can save your PC's life. Ultra Durable™PCIe Armor Enhanced Strength PCIe Design, Support for Heavy Graphics Cards For Extreme / VR Gaming Station
    Ultra Durable™Memory Armor
    GIGABYTE's exclusive one piece stainless steel shielding design prevents against PCB distortion and twist, plate bending, in addition to preventing any possible ESD interference.
    Anti-Sulfur Resistor Design
    Sulfur compounds in the air can penetrate tiny onboard resistors creating chemical change and causing these resistors to open or short. If either of these occurs the motherboard will fail to function. By equipping resistors with an Anti-Sulfur Design GIGABYTE gives Ultra Durable Motherboards a whole new meaning.
    Refreshed BIOS Easy, Smart, and Friendly
    The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a new GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their new system.
