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.
4 Fan pin headers.
6 Temperature Sensors.
All Fan Pin Headers Upgraded to Hybrid Fan Headers.
Supports High Current Fans up to 24W (2Ax12V) with Over-Current Protection.
Intuitive UI for Fan Control.
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 Watercooling.
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.

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.
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.
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.
High quality onboard audio design
Delivers high quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for professional gamers.
High definition digital outputs
Enjoy true HD display capability using the most commonly integrated digital output technologies on today's HD displays and TVs.
Next generation SATA Express
SATA Express combines the benefits of PCI Express and SATA to provide much higher bandwidth, featuring data transfer rates of up to 16 Gb/s.
Refreshed BIOS easy, smart, and friendly
The BIOS is essential for users during initial setup to allow for the most optimal settings. With a GUI and easier to use functionalities, GIGABYTE has been able to reinvent the BIOS to give users a better experience while setting up their system.
System information viewer
GIGABYTE system information viewer is a central location that gives you access to your current system status. Monitor components such as the clocks and processor, set your preferred fan speed profile, create alerts when temperatures get too high or record your system's behavior; these are the possibilities of the system information viewer.
