    Product Overview
     
    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.
     
    New Smart Fan 5 Software
    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.
    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.
     
    Ambient LED
    Ambient lights are now programmable, You can have them beat to the rhythm of the music you are listening to, or pulse at a soothing pace to create an atmosphere that enhances the environment of your game, movie or music. 
     
    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.

    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.
