The GIGABYTE X299 enthusiast motherboards are faster and more powerful. With an aggressively redesigned thermal heatsinks its sure to turn heads and catch eyes. Performance is no stranger to GIGABYTE, with exotic cooling and an ability to be tuned to peak performance GIGABYTE motherboards will exceed expectations.
Direct your most critical workloads to your processor's fast cores with Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0. Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 is a combination of software and hardware that delivers better single-threaded performance.
Set the color that matches your style
GIGABYTE's X299 series motherboards boast the advanced LED system. With more customizability than ever and a convenient and intuitive UI thanks to the RGB Fusion App, you'll have a blast making your GIGABYTE your own. For a more functional use, the bright and vibrant LEDs can be configured to display the PC's temperature or load. For even more LED goodness RGBW strips are now supported for more true and vibrant whites.
RGB Fusion with Digital LEDs
With GIGABYTE X299 Motherboards, RGB Fusion is even better with Digital LEDs. RGB Fusion offers users the option to control external LED light strips for their PC. Already feature filled with colors and patterns, RGB Fusion on X299 Series GIGABYTE motherboards are now upgraded with Digital LED support. With external digital LED strips, where each LED is digitally addressable, users can experience even more patterns, styles, and illuminations.
Independently programmable onboard pin header for RGBW/-UV LED strips
Not bright enough? You can install standard 12 V external RGB, RGBW or RGB/UV light strips on the RGBW pin header and control its color from the RGB Fusion software. Using a RGBW light strip with a dedicated white LED, users will experience brighter and more vibrant shades of colors.
ALC 1220 120 dB SNR HD audio
The ALC1220 is a high-performance multi-channel high definition audio codec with up to 120 dB SNR for crystal clear audio and features such as Smart Headphone Amp, 114 dB SNR recording for precise voice chats and hardware decoding of DSD128, ensuring users get excellent audio quality from their PC.
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.
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.
Achieve fan silence. With Fan Stop map any fan to stop completely when temperatures drop below a specified threshold. Which fan stops, based on readings from which sensor, and at what temperature - all of it can be customized to your liking.
